Let's go "slackpacking"­ at Whitewater State Park.

Come out and join myself with the Rochester Outdoor Meetup Group at Whitewater State Park for a weekend of car camping and hiking at my favorite state park. I have reserved Group site #1 for the Friday and Saturday nights of Oct 7 & Oct 8.
http://www.dnr.state.... There are a lot of special events that weekend at the park.
http://www.dnr.state.... So come out for the weekend and camp either night or both, or just come down for Saturday and do some hiking.

    Lisa had planned on making it to this outing but as some of you know she had an accident and will not be able to go. She asked me to tell you this as she has a hard time typing with one hand right now. If you want to find out about her check Backpacker.com or her Facebook page. I visited her today and she is doing better.

      Dan, this trip was last year. She was signed up for the state parks meetup trip this weekend, but I already let Brett know she would not be able to make it

    Perfect weekend for camping. The temps in the 50's made for a prefect time sitting around the campfire. The leaves were in full color.

    I should be at the campsite early Fri afternoon to set up a tarp for either shade or showers (don't really know which yet). So feel free to drop in anytime from then til Sun noonish for camping, hiking, BSing, or whatever makes for a good weekend

    For those of you looking for additional things to do on Sunday after leaving the park. Drive up along the Mississippi River when you head back to the cities and after enjoying the leaves along the way stop at the Fall Arts Festival in Red Wing. http://redwingartsassociation.org/fall_arts.htm
    Lots of art, food and interesting things to see as well as free music during the day.

    For all of you warm weather campers, check out the forecasts for this weekend (use St. Charles, MN). Sunny and warm, 50 for lows, perfect camping weather! I checked out the campsite yesterday, and the leaves are getting colorful and should be at full color by this weekend.

    I would have loved to hike Whitewater State Park...heading to the Porcupine Mts on Thursday so I won't be able to make this hike. Darn!

    I am guessing $5-$10 for camping. You will need a State Park sticker and food for the weekend will be on your own. Although it could very possibly happen that someone will do some cooking for the group in the evenings or for breakfast... just sayin....

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
