5th Anniversary and All-Club Camp Out

  • June 28, 2013 · 6:00 PM

There will be fun, there will be frivolity, there will be comradarie... Need we say more?

Finally, some details on this fun adventure:

We'll be camping in the Bear Canyon Lake Primitive Camping area here.  Although it is impossible to know exactly where we will find a spot for camping, there will be a sign or some direction given visible from the road at the junction of the Forest Road 89 and the road to Bear Canyon Lake.  Look for a sign with "ABC" on it.  We will be sure to select a site accessible to passenger vehicles.

Our campsite will be established Thursday afternoon and will be open for Thursday, Friday and Saturday night camping.  Friday will be mostly hanging out (literally in my case, with my hammock) and possibly some fishing down in Bear Canyon Lake.  Friday night we'll have a casual dinner as people filter in.

Saturday we will plan a hike in See Canyon.  Rocky will share additional information about the hike as the date approaches, but we're thinking of setting up a key-swap for those who don't want to hike out and back.  We'll plan a fun dinner potluck for Saturday night, so bring your best backwoods food game!

Sunday we'll  look at some options for quick morning hikes, or fishing, or recovering from the previous day.  There will be a group headed to the Creekside Restaraunt in Christopher Creek on Sunday for lunch before heading home.

Please come for some or all of the event if you can!  It'd be great to see everyone!

      Hi Phred, I will see you tomorrow at 4:30 at Fort McDowell casino. What type of vehicle should I look for ? I assume its a big parking lot, any landmarks that I should meet you by ?

      I drive a Red Dodge King Cab truck. Go to the North entrance of the casino off of Fort McDowell Rd. Turn into parking lot and then turn right at the first isle. I will be in that area. My cell number is[masked]

      I think the lake is probably too cold for swimming...
