Fall Camping at Yellowstone Lake State Park

Per request from meetup members (thank you for your input!), I have set up a fall camping at Yellowstone Lake State Park. Yellowstone is a beautiful area with a lake, swimming, fishing, bluffs, hiking, etc. It does have a boat landing. There are multiple group campsites (electric), so we can expand easily if we choose/need. I believe there are pit toilets (or flush?) nearby. There is a bathroom with showers on the campground also, which you will most likely have to drive to if you want, but it is accessible. It would be nice to enjoy the beautiful fall colors and sit around a campfire at night with a good group of people. :) Pack warm just in case. It is better to have layers and then adjust as needed. It could be warm in the day and cool off at night...but Sept is usually pretty beautiful....beauty and weather-wise.

This is a family friendly event and will be in conjunction with the Energizers. My almost-10-year-old son will be camping with me. He is a camping fanatic. :)

On Saturday, let's pitch in for a group supper or potluck. I will also bring some extra for breakfast if anyone would like to join. I can bring a dozen eggs and some pancake mix and syrup. If anyone has wood they can bring, that would help. We could also use a campstove...or more than one. I have a tripod and an electric griddle.

Cost will be $10/person for the whole weekend.  Site is available to us as early at 3.

    Kathryn being an organizer par excellence, how could it have been anything but a perfect weekend? She must have even organized the weather to be perfect for camping! Thank-you Kat!!

    I don't think I looked at Forever Young, but I did look at another one (or maybe it was FY) of Andrea's for this event. It was full at the time. I didn't post it to any of the meetups that she had it listed on and any spots available. I made sure to not interfere.

    Thanks for the input that you can rent or bring boats there, David. From what I understand, the Jimmy's is playing at New Glarus Oktoberfest from either 12-4 (per Jimmy's) or 1-5 (per Oktoberfest) on Sunday. New Glarus is on the way back. Campers could stop on the return from Yellowstone to enjoy the event and music: http://swisstown.com/festivals/ Sunday Setember 30th

    My cousins, Jerry and Marsha Bredeson, run the Dairy Restaurant at Yellowstone Lake. I know you guys will have your own food, but if there's anything you need or crave a scoop of ice cream, they'll be happy to provide it for you. After Labor Day, they are open on weekends through the month of September.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
