Join us for a pre-summer adventure in Adel, GA. We will spend the Memorial Weekend at Reed Bingham State Park. On Saturday, we will venture into the state park and canoe/kayak our way to our private island to enjoy some nature, drinks, and food.
We have a camping reservation for Saturday and Sunday nights. On Saturday, we will canoe/kayak to the island; explore the island, campfire, and so much more. Feel free to come up on whichever day works better for your schedule. We can arrange carpools closer to the event. However, it is important to remember that you have to arrive at state park during the day since you have to paddle to the island.
In the comments, please note when you plan on joining us, if you have a tent and sleeping bag, and/or if you have any space in your tent or camping gear you are willing to share. If we are short on tent space, we can rent some from REI. Target also sells fairly inexpensive tents.

If you have any questions, please contact Joanna: [masked]; [masked]. Thanks and hope to see you there!

Information about the park:


Reed Bingham State Park near Adel has recently opened a primitive camping area on Eagle Island, a small tract of land in the middle of the park’s 375-acre lake. Campers reach the island by paddling just 15 minutes from a dock. Visitors can either rent canoes and kayaks from the park, or they may bring their own.

Once setting up tents, campers can enjoy campfires, stars overhead and listening for wildlife. The island has plenty of trees and shrubs, offering shade and privacy from nearby boaters. Grills, picnic tables, a lantern post and pit privy are provided; however, campers must bring their own drinking water. The site will accommodate up to 30 campers. Reed Bingham State Park’s new Eagle Island campsite rents for $60, and rental canoes or kayaks are $25 for the duration of stay. Visitors can also enjoy fishing, a sand swimming beach, hiking trails, mini-golf, geocaching, bike rental, ranger programs and more.

    Hello Rotaract members, As we are quickly approaching our camping date, I would like to send out a link for the food/item sign up. Since we have a large group this is critical. I would like to make sure that we know exactly how many people are coming. Please take a moment to complete the attached link. Food/Item suggestions are at the bottom of the spreadsheet. Please sign up for several items and cross them off of the list.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Joanna
