  • Darryl B

    My apologies on the chili confusion. I guess my idea of a cook-off differs from others. So everyone do as they had planned.

    December 12, 2013

    • Steve B.

      No worries, just trying to have fun.

      December 12, 2013

    December 12, 2013

  • Phil

    I'm having to cancel out. Freeing up tent site 6. I have medical issues.

    December 12, 2013

  • Lynnette W.

    I won't be able to make it this weekend. I have tent site 4. Have a great time and I'll see you soon. Merry Christmas!!

  • Michelle D.

    I've got cabin 3 in Ahwenessa and I have to back out. I'm very disappointed I can't make it and meet everyone.
    So the cabin is available ($66 for both nights) and before I call the campground and give up the reservation I thought I'd offer it to the group. Let me know if you'd like it.

    December 10, 2013

    • Sissy

      If you give your cabin to someone else you might want to contact the park and put it in their name. That is what Darrell & Susan did when they gave their cabin to me. Now I have a confirmation in my name. It says that all renters must have a valid ID. I assume that means if it's in your name you must show ID. If anyone has any question, please call the park.

      December 11, 2013

  • Sissy

    Donna, All of the campsites are reserved under your name....correct? If so, how does every that has a site assigned to them pay? Do they pay you or when they check in pay the park?

    December 9, 2013

  • Darryl B

    Everyone should be aware that the Park closes at Sunset. Which means the gate will be locked around 5:30pm. So if you may not make it to the park before sunset, make sure you have someones phone number that will be there so you can get the gate code.

    December 9, 2013

  • Darryl B

    The early forecast is: Friday - More clouds than sun. Highs in the low 70s and lows in the upper 50s. Saturday - Times of sun and clouds. Highs in the upper 70s and lows in the low 60s. Looks like great camping weather.

    Hi all, well Paul broke his heel so we won't be able to do any activities and have cancelled the cabin. We wanted to come Sat night and hang with you guys, but I saw that guests have to leave at sunset when gate closes. Donna and /or Metta do you know if we could leave? Is there a code to gate?

    December 4, 2013

    December 4, 2013

    There is no firewood available to purchase at the camp, so bring your own or they say that some local stores carry firewood.

    1 · December 4, 2013

  • Sissy
