This meetup is for avid Campers. If you idea of spending weekends away from the City in the National Parks, then perhaps this meetup is for you. You are an enthusiastic Photographer or nature lover and enjoy easy hikes where you can spend time watching the Wildlife, taking pictures of the Landscape and the beauty that this area has to offer. This meetup is for people that enjoy sitting around a campfire, watching the sun go down before turning in. Some fishing is always good as well. Growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional!
NOTE: PHOTOGRAPHY IS OPTIONAL. I started the group because I wanted to get out of the city and be present for sundown and sunrise. This has become a mixed group, some who enjoy relaxing, reading and sitting around the fire. Others that are avid fisherman and there are the Photographers. Games are also plentiful!
PLEASE be advised that when you are replying to a meetup, do not include guests in your numbers. I am referring to "Camping Units" and not the number of individuals. I will edit that later. Well behaved Kids and Pets are welcome. Some campgrounds may not accommodate larger units, so it's best to check yourself before committing to a meetup location.
ALSO, please be aware that if it says "first come-first served", you will have to get there early enough to get a site. I will do my best to reserve a few sites along with other willing to arrive early, but the Parks rules are strict when demand is high. If you sign up, I'm not ensuring you will get a site as I have no way of doing that..... If you know someone is going, you can ask to share their site and they will know to leave room for your tent, etc. If you show up at a busy Campground at 8:00 Pm it's unlikely there will be room for you.
I will be Organizing two weekends a month or more. I'm hoping that that the open weekends will be Organized by others. If there is no meetup planned and your going camping, let the group know where you will be and how to contact you. Meetups only work if everyone participates. For now I am covering the meetup costs for the group.
