      Wish I would have went. The last few camp outs didn't seem my style. Motorhomes, quads, and a very large group of ppl. I like group camp outs but not crazy big.

    I just remember the Thanksgiving in July weekend. It rained and made a mud river thru the campground! Was a fun weekend for sure even with all that rain and muck.

    I'm interested in joining but I'm not sure what the condition of the Forrest roads there is. I typically go up north of sedona about 17 miles and just do Forrest camping rather than established sites. I have a scion tC -do you think I can make it or should I not risk it? I have all of my own gear and a good deal of firewood from last season to contribute

    • Michelle F

      There would be no problem for you. Good dirt/gravel road. All graded all the way to the boat launch area.

    June 7

    • James

      Blue ridge res. is located north of Strawberry Az. We will be camping in an unimproved camping location. You will only have what you bring with you.

    I was sooo dissapointed I couldn't go last year due to financial and other stuff that slammed me all at once. We did have a great time the year before. Maybe we should all dress up like indians and have a great pow wow rain dance!

  • Joann C.

    I'm not going to be able to camp Friday night, but will come early on Saturday to spend the day.

    We set up camp on the main road leading to the lake about 1/2 mile before the no camping beyond this point sign. Look for the AOAG signs on dirt road leading to lake
