Campground Cocktail Sauce Using Hoover Sauce

This is a fun and fantastic tasting Cocktail Sauce for shrimp done anyway you want them on the Campground.  I enjoy making it up ahead of time but it is so user friendly, you can do it right there at your campsite.

Cocktail Sauce

12 oz Chili Sauce,  1 tablespoon of prepared horseradish,  1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of HOOVER SAUCE

Combine all ingredients and mix very well.  Add salt and pepper to your taste.  Chill and serve with cooked schrimp or a chilled Shrimp Cocktail.  Excellent for “Surf & Turf”.  Makes about one and two thirds cups.  Refrigerate after use or serving.

Hernando Point – Army Corp of Engineers Arkabutla Lake, Hernando, Mississippi

Hernando Point Campground is on the east side of Arkabutla Lake.  Our favorite campsite is #17.  We have just returned from a five day camping trip. The campground has all of the amenities with the exception of sewer.  Site 17 is right on the water and provides a beautiful sunset each day.  On our visit last week, we experienced wind gusts up to about 40 mph for four of the five days.  This is the only federal or state park that allows you to dump your “gray” water at your campsite.  Do not dump “black” water except at the dump station.

Hernando Point is located on the east side of Arkabutla Lake, 5 miles south of Hernando, MS or 3 miles north of Coldwater, MS on Hwy 51.  Memphis is only about 35 miles away so you can find plenty to do in Memphis.

GreatOutdoorBlessings star rating out of 5 ***** is a 3 ***

Welcome to the study summary of John Chapter 11.  Please read the 11th Chapter of John before reviewing this summary. 

John 11:1-44   Jesus is informed that His friend Lazarus of Bethany, has died.  After two days He goes to Bethany, where He is met by Lazarus’s sister Martha.  He  declares to Martha, “I am the resurrection, and the life” (v. 25), then raises Lazarus from the dead.

John 11:45-57  Jesus’ raising of Lazarus and His claim to be God’s Son drive the Pharisees and the Jewish Sanhedrin into a frenzy.  They begin to plot how they can arrest Him and have Him executed.

 Welcome to the study summary of John Chapter 10.  Please read the 10th Chapter of John before reviewing this summary. 

John 10:1-21  This is one of Jesus’ “I am” statements in the Gospel of John.  He compares Himself with a shepard who watches over his sheep.  As the good shepard, Jesus will make the ultimate sacrifice for those who follow Him: The good shepard giveth his life for the sheep” (v. 11).

John 10:22-42  Jesus declares to the religious leaders of Israel that He is the Christ, the Son of God.  They accuse Him of blasphemy and try to execute Him by stoning.  But He slips away to an isolated spot in the wilderness of Judea to rest and pray.

  Welcome to the study summary of John Chapter 9.  Please read the 9th Chapter of John before reviewing this summary.

 John 9:1-41  Jesus heals a man who had been blind all of his life.  The Pharisees question Jesus’ credentials, since He had sinned according to their legalistic laws, by performing this healing on the Sabbath.  They question the man about the healing, and he stands his ground in defense of Jesus.  After this healed man becomes a believer, Jesus declares that the Pharisees are the real blind people in this situation; they fail to see the truth because of their sin and prejudice.

Self-Study The Gospel According to JOHN-Chapter 8

john-the-apostle.jpg

 Welcome to the study summary of John Chapter 8.  Please read the 8th Chapter of John before reviewing this summary.

John 8:12-30  Jesus angers the Pharisees by claiming to be the Son of God and the light that God has sent to deliver the world from darkness.  (please see 1 John 1:7)

John 8:31-59  Jesus further angers the Pharisees by questioning their claim that they are “children of Abraham.”  If they were truly Abraham’s descendants, He declares, they would be doing the works of Abraham rather than plotting to have Him killed.  As the eternal, preexistent Son of God, He is superior to Abraham: “Before Abraham was I am” (verse 58).

Self-Study The Gospel According to JOHN-Chapter 7

john-the-apostle.jpg

Welcome to the study summary of John Chapter 7.  Please read the 7th Chapter of John before reviewing this summary.

John 7:1-9  The brothers of Jesus do not believe that Jesus is the Messiah.  In a mocking and skeptical tone, they urge Him to attend the Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem where He can declare openly that He is the Messiah.

John 7:10-52  Jesus decides to attend the celebration in Jerusalem without revealing that He is the Messiah.   But His teachings and His reputation as a healer and a miracle worker cause a division among the people.  Some believe He is the Messiah, while others deny this possibility.  Nicodemus, a Pharisee who had talked with Jesus earlier (John 3:1-21), urges his fellow Pharisees not to condemn Jesus for blasphemy until they have solid evidence against Him. 

John 7:53-8:11  Jesus forgives a woman accused of adultery and condemns the self-righteousness of her accusers:  “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her” (8:7)

Outdoor Etiquette and Campground Manners

Following these simple guidelines can help every camper have a great experience in GOD’s Great Outdoors.

  • Walk on designated trails and do not cut through other campsites, even if it would make it easier to get to washrooms or other locations.  Walking through another person’s campsite is like walking through their living room.
  • Keep you pet on a leash at all times.  Pets (except guide dogs) are not allowed in swimming areas or sanitary facilities.
  • Pick up after your dog.  Bring a scoop or plastic bag with you, even for short walks, and use them! 
  • Always fully extinguish your campfire when you leave your campsite.  Within campgrounds and other recreation areas, fires may only be built in fire rings, stoves, grills, or fireplaces provided for that purpose.
  • Keep your fire under control.  The smoke and flames of large fires can become hard to manage and intrusive to people in other campsites.  Fires may be limited or prohibited at certain times.
  • Be thoughtful when using a radio or generator.  Take the time to ask if the radio is too loud for your neighbors.
  • Minimize noise late at night.  Although you may love sitting and talking around the campfire late at night, other campers may be trying to sleep.  Observe quiet hours (generally between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.).
  • Do not leave trash or food out when you leave your campsite or are sleeping.  The smell may attract wildlife visitors.  Deposit garbage in containers provided, or better yet, take the trash with you when you leave.
  • Follow campground rules about washing dishes.  Generally, wash dishes at your campsite and dump remaining wastewater in the waste vault or other designated location.
  • Leave natural features of the campsite alone.  Camp only in those places specifically provided or marked, and follow the rules regarding the use of firewood.  Do not carve, chop, cut and damage any live trees.
  • Park vehicles, RVs, and trailers on your campsite driveway.  Driving or parking off road is not permitted.
  • Be friendly and say hello to your neighboring campers and the volunteer campground hosts.
  • And last but not least-have a great time in the Great Outdoors!
