Coin operated showers (quarter per minute) and a general store will be available in the entrance to the camping resort (about 1/2 mile from our campsite), and it is a pet friendly environment (however, your pet should be kept on a leash).

Maximum 8 people per site(no limitations on tents per site),  with 1 free vehicle per camp site. Additional parking lot available as well for $13 per night (1 additional vehicle per campsite is included in the cost). So carpooling is highly encouraged!! The 1st 2 vehicles (1 for free and one included in the cost for $13) are covered, additional vehicles will have to park at their own expense.

We will designate one campground as the HANGOUT area where we all chill by the fire, roast smores, play games like Twister, Phase 10, and drink alcohol. The maximum attendance is 48, so it's a first come, first serve basis. :)

Small personal watercraft EXCEPT Jet Ski's are allowed on Collins lake (kayaks, paddle boards, Boats, etc...), so if you have one, feel free to bring it. A boat fee is $9/day. If members bring their boats and you would like to enjoy it as well, please make sure to bring $10 to help the owner cover their gas, daily fee, etc...

Everyone will be responsible for their own food, and feel free to hit someone up to stay in their tent if you don't have one.

We have the whole area off of road 6 reserved (Campsites 315, 317, 319, 320, 321, 322, 323). Remember to pack "light n' tight" to save room for carpools.

    Carpool list is updated...get used to seeing this a few times a week. Now for those of you who are driving yourselves, just know that you will most likely be responsible for your own parking fee of $13 per day. Reason being is the carpool is designed to use as little as vehicles as possible. Also, there are too a few of you who have not answered the questions asked as you rsvp'd...please get used to answering some questions on almost EVERY event that our meetup group runs...if you have not yet, please do so....if you have any questions, please contact me immediately....have a great Monday everyone....see all of you very soon :-)

    Scott, I changed your rsvp from the "waiting list" to "no". You left no cell number for me to reach in the question/answer part when you rsvp'd for the event. I have also sent you several emails with no response.
