Monroe Lake Peninsula

This is a great trip for beginners! Its a short 4.5 miles in to the shore where we will set up camp. We'll be there plenty early enough  to explore the lake and/or fish if youd like.

      Kim you can ride up with me if you want but I dont have the extra room for your pup. With Fezs pet carrier and gear I don't think I can fit another pet in the back

      Awesome! Glad you guys get to come!

    Katrina and I will be bringing our dogs. They are seasoned backpackers and very well behaved. I checked the park regs and should be OK.

    April 29, 2014

    • Kimberly

      My dog will be on a leash at all times. I haven't taken her in several years because of a dog getting bit by a snake and almost dying on one of our trips. She will be with me at all times.

      2 · April 29, 2014

    • Kimberly

      And the snakes are out and about now...so please take precaution. I had front row seats to what could have easily happened to my dog.

      2 · April 29, 2014

  • Katrina E.

    It's too bad this is limited to 10

    1 · April 28, 2014

    • Ron S.

      Yeah its one of the park regulations or I'd have a bigger group. Yeah you made the list thou!

    After looking at this, I think we are going to bring the canoe along and paddle in from the marina. Might do some fishing along the way.
