Overview of the old bridge
This was taken April 2002. Within a year, none of the bridge remained.

My family ran the campground at Gipsy Bridge Park back in the 70's and I have many fond memories from there. I remember the bridge used to terrify me when I learned to drive & had to navigate across it in a Chevy Impala, but I soon conquered that fear! I miss the "Big Bridge" as we used to call it. (There was a smaller one about 1/2 mile up the road we called the "little bridge") It had great personality & character. The new bridge that replaced it may be stronger, but it's just not the same.
Camping at Gipsy was great! Every summer when I was a kid, my whole extended family got together for a week of fun and togetherness. I have begun searching for another spot like the Gipsy bridge campground so that all of my cousins and I can keep the tradition going with our kids, but no luck so far. So much for progress...
I remember camping at the old Gypsy Bridge Campground as a child/teenager. (in the 1970's) There was a square dance stage set up there, and on one side of the bridge there was a small trail that led up to a gorgeous overview of the river.
Thanks for letting me see that fine old bridge one last time!
