Back in my younger days when I was a tent camper, we hiked into Otter Creek about a mile -- late on a Friday night. We camped above an ankle deep creek. It rained most of the night. Our tent flooded and people were coming across that stream and the water was up to their chests. Luckily we were on the car side of the creek and decided to pack it up and go home.
Glad you got out safe.
