Frontenac State Park

Camping at
Frontenac State Park September 24-26, 2010. Due to the amount of interest in this trip I am going to increase the limit of campers to 18. I think any more then that and we risk losing the closeness feeling. When you RSVP yes I will put you on the waiting list and when you pay I will change you back to yes. From the parks
website: Located on the Mississippi River, Frontenac is a birdwatcher's paradise. It's one of the best spots in the country to view birds migrating in the spring and fall. More than 260 species of birds have been recorded here. No wonder: Lake Pepin's diverse habitats -- bluffland, prairie, floodplain forest and upland hardwood forest -- attract numerous warblers, hawks, waterfowl and shorebirds. Hikers and skiers enjoy spectacular views of this beautifully wooded river valley. Fishing, swimming and boat tours are all available nearby. Check out the parks website for more information. Cost will be $25 per person for the weekend. We will be in the group campsite.

    I am not going to make it. Last night in my town of Preston there was some minor flooding. I didn't get it, but two years ago I had water up within six inches of going into my apartment. I am within a half block of the South Branch Root River. I see the Weather Service has now extended the flood warning through Sunday. I presume any more rain would make the
    already-high river go even higher. So I think I better stay around home. : (

    This group campsite has it's own very large shelter (and another smaller one) if it would rain. The campsite is all nice grass that drains well if it would rain and the trails also dry up quickly. So don't let any concerns about the rain we may get Thurs/Fri prevent you from coming this weekend. This is a great park!
