    Great time! Even as a first time camper! (On our own). Great memories were made. Can't wait to go again. How about this rain that held off for us!

    This trip was so much fun. Thanks to all the families who came out.

    A special shout out to Melissa who came out after hearing her good news! Congrats Melissa.

    Hello, I was wondering if there was any type of timetable. Is before the potluck just set up, or is there canoeing or kayaking? How about after dinner or Sunday morning? Thank you so much!

    May 24, 2014

    • David

      Setup. and families can go canoeing and kayaking anytime cause they're open late

    Great trip! My 14 year old daughter and I would love to join you folks IF someone would be willing to share their tent site with us. It appears to me Saturday night sites are sold out. Two tents are allowed on one site, as long as one of them is a small tent. We have a small one, would pitch ours a distance away, and we would of course split costs. I believe we will stay one night. Thanks, Lee. Cell-text[masked]

      We are site 22 with 1 big tent....

    Hi, I just joined this group yesterday and love the idea of coming to the campout next weekend and meeting new friends. Since all the sites are full by now, I am still planning to come on Saturday and join in the potluck and other activities that day. I have two girls, 2 and 4, and wondering if there are others with kids of this age range. I can't wait to meet all of you!

    May 18, 2014

    • David

      Definitely..call my cell at[masked]

      May 23, 2014

    • Lee K

      Monika, two tents are allowed on a site... I think one of the tents has to be small, though. I could loan you a smaller sized three person tent (roomy for three) if you could find someone to help you out. I am also looking for a site-share, as I don't have a reservation, either. If no one contacts you, I'd still bring your camping gear, as people cancel reservations all the time, and you could very well get a spot due to a cancellation, or a nice family might let you on their site...

    Hey Gang... I have a great idea for a Family Friendly sunset hike after our group BBQ. Halfway thru our hike, we will be having a 3 legged race or some other fun event.

    Of course, the sunset hike is optional. But it will be awesome... my 10 and 11 year old daughters love it

    Would love to canoe or kayak with my 2 girls. But cant give you a definite...depends on how I'm feeling because of my chemo treatments. Will there be the option to make the decision there? I'm ok if you HAVEto know in advance

    May 21, 2014

  • David

    Hi Everyone. So excited about the upcoming trip. Time to get a head count of who is canoeing and kayaking on Sunday. Canoes: 3 Person Max (2 Adults one Child)
    Kayaks: Single or Tandem
    All boats are first come first serve, but I got a guy on the inside.

    I need to get a final head count of those families going canoeing on Saturday night or Sunday. Also, Heavner's has provided us with $5.00 off Coupons for every family one for each day or night. That means we can canoe/kayak until our hearts are content.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.. CALL ME ASAP with your numbers. My cell is[masked]

    Have had this on my calendar. .. but just now looking at all the comments. .. was hoping to go. Have had some health issues this winter that prevented me from planning ahead. BUT I finish chemo the week before and am ready to go! Does anyone have room on their site for a 6 man tent and me and my 2 girls? (8 & 10)???

    The campground allows more than one tent per site, maximum of 6 ppl in a spot. I think those who cannot find a site, can share with someone who is willing to..

    April 29, 2014

  • karen t.

    There will be plenty of kids to keep other kids busy & having fun!
    We will have a potluck dinner Saturday night....more detals to follow.
    David, do we have canoes/kayaks reserved for Sunday?

    Looks like all the sites are full. Maybe I can drive out for a day and meet some of you. I only live 30 miles away* if not that weekend then I look forward to the next event*

  • Casie A.

    Hey all. I am new to the group and the State* my husband will be out if town that weekend but I would still like to go and meet some folks with kids since I am pregnant. Would it be weird if I got a campsite for one person?

      You should definitely join us! My family and I moved here from Chicago 2 years ago. This group has been a great way to meet people and explore mi parks... We went to the camp out last year and it was a lot of fun. Hope to see you there this year! :)

      Not at all. Welcome to the group

    Welcome all you 1st timers! We are a terrific group and little tikes to complaining teens all have fun. The teens find a basket ball & off they go! The tweens all follow the little ones around being amused by their cutness! We are in the site next to Dave & we purchased a teepee too!!! See you all next month. We will plan a potluck for sat nite & a big breakfast one morning as well.

    Has a location been decided? Do you usually reserve a block of sites or does everyone reserve their own?

      Proud Lake State Park is our location. Families are responsible for making their own reservations.

      February 9, 2014

  • karen t.

    Hate to tell you David, but Brighton has nothing available at the modern campground & pinckney is slim pickings. We may need to keep it at proud lake or reserve a group site, which is rustic. No campers :-(
    I also looked into Pontiac lake, there's lots of space there too. Check it out.

    February 2, 2014

    • David

      Good to know. I will check it out. Too bad the gang doesn't want to make a road trip to PJ Hoffmeister in Muskegon. THat place is awesome

      February 2, 2014

  • David

    Give us your Vote. I'm thinking the Pinckney Recreation area is a good bet for this years campout. Nice wooded park, Silver Lake great for swimming a short drive away, and the chain of lakes for great fishing. Brighton Recreation area is also available and awesome for swimming, hiking and fishing. Newer bathrooms like Proud Lake as well. Let me know if you vote for Silver Lake in Pinckney, or Brighton Rec area in Brigthon

    We are interested in joining the campout again this year, but it will depend on the location. We are leaving for a destination wedding the following weekend, so if this campout is local we are in... If it is a drive we will take a rain check!
