Yes there is a town called Shingleton. Ralph wanted to go there and meet some kinfolk. He was thinking a party maybe even a parade to welcome him into the fold. Unfortunately the town is named after a shingle mill and there were no kinfolk. Except maybe the one living in the trailer in the picture below.

This is the campground we stayed at while visiting the area. It was spacious and the host was very nice. It is right on the lake. Only electric hookups. No phone or internet services.
