Campers' Eden Map.

The family goes to Campers' Eden, a luxury campsite with other people visiting, unlike the forest. They then were amused by the fact that the resort has a gaming room, a pool, a sandpit, and a lake with canoes and kayaks. There was also a bathhouse to take hot showers, which got Susan excited the most about. There was a sewer hook-up in the campsites also. Susan asked for a campsite next to a lake, however, the lot was full and the economy section was the only spot left. While Frank was flushing the sewage tank, Greg explored the resort. Unfortunately, the arcade in the gaming room had a few games that Greg wasn't interested in playing. There was a pool table, but the kids used fruits instead of pool balls. The swimming pool wasn't that good either. The parents were not supervising their kids, and also, some kids got drifted out into the deep end, which was a problem due to the people on the high dive. There was no lifeguard, meaning people can do whatever they wanted to do.


Greg went to the hot tub next, but the hot tub was full of dogs and a cat. There was a laundry place, a snack shack, and a deluxe campsite. Luckily, the family was in spots away from the motorcycle gang and the pet-friendly row. Since the campsites had narrow spaces in between, the people decided to use the roofs of their campers. Susan tried to get to learn about the neighbors, however, the people liked to keep to themselves. Then, a siren alarm from the main lodge made sounds, meaning there was a skunk on the campsites. The skunk then ate the Heffley's dinner. Greg talks about how when God created the animals, he gave them abilities to defend themselves, but when it was time to create human beings, the good ideas were used up. Greg guesses that God made up for it by giving humans brains, but Greg would've gone with quills. Greg gets the idea to not take a shower until college so he can scare off people with smelling bad. The family then gets sprayed by people, ruining their hot dogs. It turns out that 9 PM is the time in which people go to bed.

The next day, Greg gets woken up by a person who was doing wood carving on his campsite. Greg was about to scold him, but Greg decides to let him go after he used a chainsaw. Susan explained to Greg that the bathhouse needed coins to operate the showers and move the family's clothes from the washer to the dryer. Greg didn't like the fact he had to be in a public building to shower, because he needs privacy, and talks about his comfort in the bathroom. The bathhouse had men and women, which Greg disliked the fact. It turns out that the line was long because there were only three shower stalls. Though Greg enjoyed the hot water, the people next to him were chatting with him. Before Greg rinsed the shampoo in his hair, the shower stopped. Greg tried to put the coins in by himself, but a person took his stall, so then he left to rinse his hair in the sink, in which the water was free. Greg was surprised to find out that the chainsaw guy put the clothes on the floor, but let him go another time.

Later in the camper van, Susan tells Greg to find new friends on the site rather than using electronics. Greg is reluctant but is forced to go with a random group when Susan is about to embarrass him. He follows them where they're going and they introduce themselves. The shortest member and leader of the pack is 'Juicebox' and other members are 'DooDoo', 'Weevil', 'Fivehead', 'Cutter', 'Regular Marcus', and 'Big Marcus'. Greg presumes they're all just codenames so he introduces himself as 'Jimmy Dogfish'. The guys showed Greg around the camping lot. Greg figured that they had been coming here for years.

The next day, Susan didn't have any big plans much to Greg's relief, because he just wanted to lie low for the rest of the trip. Susan went to the camp store to get groceries and came back with a flyer for a pool party. Nobody was excited, but Susan said it could turn their trip around. Greg thought it would be nice to go, since it was really hot and sticky the last few days, so he could go and cool down. Greg went to the camp store to get plastic utensils, but on his way back he ran into Regular Marcus hiding in a trash can. Regular Marcus told Greg that he found posters all over the campsite advertising a free ice cream sundae party at the lodge, which Marcus took from the laundromat and showed to Greg, who immediately realized was a TRICK, and it was really to find out who trashed the snack shack, using free ice cream as bait. Regular Marcus was going to go into the lodge earlier along with the rest of the boys, but he didn't have his water gun, so he had to go back and get it, and when he arrived, the door was locked and he peeked inside to find the camp director telling the boys they would have to scrub every inch of the snack shack with toothbrushes. Juicebox threw Greg under the bus by blaming the mess all on him, breaking the pact. The camp director asked Juicebox to help him find "Jimmy Dogfish".

Greg didn't want to be at his campsite when Juicebox and the camp director showed up, so he urged his family to eat quickly so he could get to the pool party. Greg figured that area would be safe, but he was wrong. The combination of nighttime and loud noise sparked chaos, even among the grown-ups, the dads turned the shallow end of the pool into a whirlpool, and somebody had greased the slide. There was a movie at the other end, which Greg says should've been something more family-friendly.

Susan wanted to do activities in the grassy area, and she wanted to do everything. They couldn't win the balloon-popping contest, which involved sitting on a balloon to pop it, because Manny couldn't pop the first balloon, due to being too light. Frank entered the beer belly contest, but couldn't even make it past the first round. Manny entered the hot dog eating contest and got first place, and Greg didn't even know Manny could pack away that much food. Greg and Rodrick entered a dizzy stick relay race, where you had to spin a baseball bat five times and then tag the next person, but they were playing against two guys who barfed from eating too many hot dogs. Susan wanted Greg to enter the mother-son dancing contest, but he refused to do it, so Susan got Manny instead. Greg entered the pie eating contest but his seat was too close to the pool, which was holding the belly flop contest, which too many people got on the diving board, causing it to bend over.

After the party, Susan got the family to go for a nice swim. They found an inner tube so big, it looked like an airplane tire. They climbed on, but it got flipped over. Susan was done, and Greg felt bad because he knew how much she wanted that night to be special. A few stragglers came to the pool, but they contained the teenagers, as well as Juicebox with the camp director. Greg dove underwater to stay hidden, but at that moment, a bright flash of light happened, like someone took a picture underwater. Greg surfaced to find that a thunderstorm was underway, the teenagers, Juicebox, and the director were long gone, but Greg had to move it to get back to the camper to avoid being struck by lightning. Greg left the pool area but was lost in the darkness combined with the rain. Lightning struck, and it sounded like it hit something, and the skunk siren went off, stressing Greg even more. Greg tried to go into the deluxe campers, but no one would let him inside. Greg finally made it back to his camper, where his family was waiting. Greg was relieved to find his family and thought that the storm came at the perfect time, only for the Heffleys to realize that a skunk got into the camper and sprayed everyone. The family tried to deal with the odor by wearing ketchup and Uncle Gary's cologne.

The next day they realized the camper stunk as well, and they had to throw away all of their food. Greg went down to the camp store to get the ingredients, only to find people hoarding everything they can. Doo-Doo (who didn't seem to mind Greg's odor, since he was smelly himself) told Greg that lightning struck the bridge the previous night, breaking it in the process, meaning that the supply truck couldn't get onto the property to supply the camp store, which caused Greg to panic since it meant that nobody could get OFF the property either. Greg went back to the camper, and Susan said that they shouldn't panic and should focus on getting rid of the odor. The Heffleys were able to use the hot tub since dogs don't like the smell of skunk spray either and were scared off.

By the time the Heffleys were done, however, things had gotten off of the rails. The camp store ran out of water bottles, and people went to the spigot to fill up their containers but took more than they needed, and the well ran dry. People went to get water from the showers, but they ran out of coins, so quarters were like gold, and one woman sold her wedding ring for seventy-five cents. Some people got frustrated and raided the arcade, as well as the laundromat, which was going to stink after everybody ran out of clean clothes. Eventually, someone got the bright idea to take the big plastic tank off the top of the bathhouse, which rolled off of the roof spilling half of its contents before spilling the other half out at one of the horseshoe pits, turning it into quicksand. Some people tried to salvage what they could, but they ended up getting stuck and had to be rescued by a biker. Around dinnertime, people got hungry. While some people had food to last them for a few days, everybody else was depending on getting groceries from the camp store, so people went CRAZY. A bunch of people raided the snack shack, and one person stole a giant bag of food from the pet-friendly area. The animals, according to Greg, must've gotten the sense that things got out of control, so they banded together, and when one of the neighbors fired up their grill to make hamburgers, a pack of dogs made its move. A few people ate the leftover hot dogs from the pool party, and the teenagers salvaged some of their slingshot ammunition down at the field, and Greg was nervous that people would become cannibals and start to eat EACH OTHER, so he took his shirt off to show he didn't have a whole lot of meat on him. Greg was worried about the weather, and a flash flood was coming that night, which was the LAST thing the camp needed. Susan said that they shouldn't panic and that by morning someone would repair the bridge and everything would go back to normal, but by nightfall, things got a whole lot worse, and bikers started tipping over deluxe campers when they thought they were hoarding canned food. The Heffleys had to get out of there, and Greg remembered that the stream had a shallow spot, and expected his family to call his idea stupid, but the bikers tipped over another camper a few doors down, and they were ready to try just about anything. They moved their RV but forgot about the sewer hookup, and tore it up. The RV started to roll downhill, and they started the engine. They found the shallow spot and drove across it, but the RV got stuck, the exhaust tore off, and the sewer hookup was underwater which caused the toilet to back up. The Heffleys escaped to the roof of the RV and were floating downstream towards the bridge. The Heffleys used cushions to float away, but Manny jumped into the driver's seat and steered the Camper to the right, where it snapped into place on the bridge, fitting like a puzzle piece, and then He shot off the flare, alerting everyone, who then drove across the makeshift bridge, which took a full hour, and when the very last motorcycle crossed the bridge, all the family could hear was the rain.

The next morning, the campground had emptied, and the Heffleys were the only ones left, and Camper's Eden lived up to its name. Two days later, the supply truck came back to resupply the camp store, and that night, they all ate like kings. They had the whole lake to themselves, and they had fun. Greg did make a few good memories during his trip, but he was right about how it took a miracle.
