    Loved it. Space 84 had a nice little passage way to the back which led to the lake about 50 ft from the campsite. Nice Weather with a little sprinkle Saturday morning . We found a breakfast restaurant with excellent good Ol'American Big Breakfast. The place is called Charlies. Eggs...hashbrowns,,grits....beef hash and pancakes...coffee to wake up..

  • Dawn

    It was good to meet everyone. What a great bunch of people. See you out there!

    September 28

  • Gilgamesh

    I'm wondering why we have a waiting list for this event!

    September 25

    • Tracey

      Also, the limited number is used to get a good estimate on how many members who rsvp Yes actually attend. Since the organizer pays money to the park for the campsites, it is not fair when people rsvp yes but do not show up, causing other attendees to pay more than the original estimate. Typically new members are more likely to "flake out."

  • Tom P.

    Curtis, what time are planning on arriving to check in to our sites?

    September 21

    • Tom P.

      It is just that my schedule for Friday is a bit unsure. Something about clients wanting the work done now. Anyway with the extra sites you have and the lack of more on that loop, I take my chances to camp with the group. Thanks.

      1 · September 23

    • Tom P.

      If I get this job done on Thursday as planned, I'll take off early Friday and try to get there around 3:30 or so.

      1 · September 23

    I'd like to come fri night and leave sun morning with a guest and have a tent. I thought I'd get a site near this meetup since the group is full. What site are you guys at so I can make reservations? Is anybody else in a similar position?

    September 21

    September 2

    • Ken M.

      You and your camper: how decadent!

      September 11
