Join us for outdoor activities and great company! If you want time away from the big city and you like camping, hiking, fishing, and/or just generally relaxing, then join us for a weekend getaway to the Fairfield Lake State Park. This is a nice little State Park, less than a couple hours from the Dallas area! We hope you'll take the time to look over the details and consider joining us. There are hiking, biking and horseback riding trails here as well as the lake to kayak and fish from. I think this will be a nice outing and fairly close, as some of you have to come out after work.
Please ignore 'map' shown above, meetup will not allow me to change marker to correct location. Please use THESE Directions/map:: http://goo.gl/maps/4GdeT

We also request you leave your 'barky' dogs at home as this is a major disturbance at camp. Difficult to sleep with a dog barking at night, early hours in the morning.
Some of us will be bringing our kayaks to do some paddling, as well as hitting some of the trails, both activities are good here. I think you all will enjoy this place.

Currently, there is NO burn ban at this park (at this posting date), thus, bringing a little firewood, each, is a good thing! If anything changes, I will let you know. But, plan on bringing some firewood.
