***Camping at Silver Lake***


As you rsvp, you have the option to either pay via PayPal  ([masked]), please "gift" it, or contact me with your ATM/Credit Card for $25.00(plus $2 fee) per person for the weekend. This must be done as you rsvp, no exceptions!! No refunds will be provided unless you find another person to take your place on the trip.


  • Carpool will meet at 2:30pm Friday, and depart at 2:45pm

Come join the crew as we venture into the outdoors of Amador National Forest.  We'll meet at 2:30pm in Newark and at 5:00pm in El Dorado Hills(STARBUCKS meetup point). We will leave at 5:15pm and make our way to Plasse's Resort off hwy 88. It'll be a 2 night stay arriving on July 19th(FRI), and returning July 21st(SUN). Coin operated showers will be available, and it is a pet friendly environment. 2 tents (4 people) per campsite is the limit along with 1 vehicle, but there is an overflow parking lot available as well for $5 per night. We'll 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.  Boats, jetskis, kayaks are all accepted on the lake so if you have one, feel free to bring it. 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 will be in B CAMP which is located right next to the coin operated showers.  We have the whole area reserved. Remember to pack "light n' tight" to save room for carpools.

    A lil reminder, the lady said it is definitely sweater at night at the campsite...it'll be 100 degrees in Folsom, but around the high 50's at night up at Silver Lake...quickest route from Sac is take hwy 50 to Pollock Pines and take Sly Park Rd exit to right, and follow that to Mormon Emigrant Trail and take a Left, that'll take you all the way to Hwy 88, then take a Left, and Plasse's Resort will be on your right near Silver Creek. Again, I want to stress DO NOT USE UR CELL for a gps, u'll lose service and ur gps won't work, so write down actual directions, or use a gps device. I will have my walkie talkie on me like snowboarding...B Camp is located behind and to the left of the general store....again if you haven't spoken to your campsite mates, please figure your tents out cuz we can ONLY have 2 tents per site...also, we need wood to burn at night, if anyone has access to wood let us know, or we should all buy some....get prepared for LOOOOOOOONG nights...heh heh...peace out..

    Happy Monday to you all...just a few days away from our 2nd Annual Camping Trip at Plasse's Resort...a couple of tips..if your only source for a GPS is your cell, then do NOT use it...once you lose reception(and you will) your gps will NOT work any longer, so either write exact directions down or use an alternate GPS unit...sometime today Ella will be sending out to the drivers and passengers their cells so you all can be in contact with each other...please be on time at the meetup locations whether you're a driver or passenger....bring lots of alcohol and if by chance u have access to wood to burn, please let me know...take lots of pics as well cuz I'd like to put together an album once the trip is over and post it on the FB Fan page....remember that the showers take quarters as well.....
