September's Camping Trip - Peninsula State Park, Door County, WI

PENINSULA STATE PARK IN DOOR COUNTY, WISCONSIN

High bluffs and cobblestone shoreline, an 1860's lighthouse, a challenging 18-hole golf course, a professional summer theater, a sandy swimming beach, bike trails and a year-round Naturalist program make this 3,776-acre park extremely popular.

Peninsula State Park

9462 Shore Road

Fish Creek, WI[masked]

[masked]

This park is located in the middle of historic Door County. From Green Bay take Hwy 42/57 North. Once north of Sturgeon Bay remain on Hwy 42 North to Fish Creek. The park is located approximately 1 mile from the village limits. Turn left at the large entrance sign.

This trip is planned for three nights: Thursday, September 5, Friday, September 6 and Saturday, September 7 and departing on Sunday, September 8.

It will be open to 19 people since we have a large open campsite.  You are welcome to join for any length of stay, but please note that since the park is 5 hours from Chicago, to make the most of your weekend, I encourage you to try to arrive on Thursday.

Payment: The cost per person for this event will be $38. Your fee includes:

- Group site fees

- Dinner for Saturday

- Breakfast for Friday, Saturday and Sunday

- Firewood for the weekend

- Miscellaneous camping equipment

- Paypal fees

Cancellation Policy: This event is pre-pay in order for you to RSVP YES. If your plans change and you must cancel, you must request a refund NO LATER THAN Wednesday, August 28th AT 7:00 PM to receive a full refund. If you cancel after this time or are a no-show, you will lose your entire payment. This group camps rain or shine so weather is not considered grounds for a refund. Please note that the automatic Waitlist does not work for pre-pay events, so please add your wish to be on the waitlist to the Meetup comments.

Food Arrangements: Everyone should bring their own food for all snacks and lunches. Breakfast on Friday, Saturday and Sunday are included in your fee. Besides all snacks and lunches, you will be on your own for dinner on Thursday and Friday.  Friday John and I will be going to Shipwrecks for dinner.  You are welcome to join us.  Last year several people went to the Friday Fish Boils that are well know in the area.  We will take turns volunteering to help with all prep, cooking, and cleaning responsibilities for all meals. ALL beverages - alcohol and non-alcohol, including coffee, milk and juices - are BYOB.

In keeping with our new environmentally responsible policy, all campers are responsible for their own mess kit – including napkins. These items will no longer be provided by the group. A wash-line and sanitation station will be set up after breakfast and dinner for campers use.

Parking and Wisconsin State Park Vehicle Permits: We should have ample space for parking, but I still suggest carpooling. If you are willing to carpool, please use the "comment" field in the RSVP and indicate where you are leaving from and how many you can take along in your car. In addition, individual cars also need a Wisconsin State Park Vehicle Sticker that can be purchased at the park ($10 a night or $35 per year, your choice). You can also buy them online: http://dnr.wi.gov/org/land/parks/fees/

Miscellaneous: We will plan to have 19 campers.  We have to be out by 3:00pm on Sunday, September 8. In addition, please note the following:

1) Feel free to bring a kayak or canoe as our site is located near the lake and affords a prime opportunity for water sports

2) Pets are allowed. PLEASE INDICATE IN YOUR RSVP IF YOU ARE BRINGING A PET.

I will be emailing final details about the group site and finalized menu options the Tuesday before the event. In the meantime, please feel free to e-mail any of the organizers with any questions.

    Great job again, John & Janine! Good food, good friends, great venue. Janine even used her connections higher up to clear Saturday evening's skies for some more time with my telescope!

    If anyone's bringing kayaks and is interested, I'm planning a Mink River Estuary trip for Saturday. Looks like it's an easy paddle with awesome photography potential.

    I'm anticipating that I may need to make a trip to Minnesota over this weekend. Since I won't know for sure until after the time I would have to leave for Door County, I'm going to have to take a pass on this weekend's outing.

    September 4, 2013

    • Janine W

      Sorry to hear Birt. If the MN trip doesn't happen feel free to come up Friday morning. You don't have to leave till Sunday afternoon. Still might be worth the trip.

    Hi Janine,
    Sorry I did not get on this sooner. Was out of town. Would love to join you all if possible, a friend or 2 may want to come as well. We would bring our own food at this late notice and pay for camping and whatever else. I would be bringing my kayak and bike and hope to get alot of activity in if anyone is up for lots of activity. Hoping I can still join you all :)

    September 4, 2013

    • Janine W

      Jeanette, We have plenty of food. See menu in previous comments. I will open the RSVP's back up so you can sign up. Don't pay thru paypal, since it's so late. Just pay when you get there and join us. We are on the Meadows site. j9

    September 4, 2013

  • Tim K

    I hope nobody's expecting me to spend a lot of time around the campfire this weekend. The weather forecast appears to be pretty good. If so I'll be using my telescope a lot!

    September 4, 2013

    • Janine W

      I only ask you get the firewood for Thurs. Remember John and I will be there late around 10pm.

    August 11, 2013

  • Tim K

    Anyone interested in carpooling? Rick, I would have pinged you, but with my telescope this time I don't think there's enough room. Besides, I'd like to also bring a bicycle.

    August 10, 2013

  • Tim K

    John and Janine, better review and update the refund policy. It says one must request by August 38th! That's kinda tough to do.
