FTA member only Camp Out

 

This weekend of fun is for Florida Trail Association Members Only.  If you are not an FTA member(not the same as meetup) you still have plenty of time to join.  Visit http://www.floridatrail.org/.

We will meet at the Winn Dixie in Lynn Haven at 4:00pm for those that would like to carpool together.  If you are meeting is there, here are the directions to get there:

Head north on hwy 77 until you hit hwy 20

Make a right (head east) on Hwy 20 for 9.7 miles

Turn left on North Blue springs Rd for 1.8 miles

The camp site will be on your left.

N. Blue Springs Rd is dirt and not in the best condition.  Please be cautious while driving.

 

If you would like to map the site on Google Maps, Type in your location to Sparkleberry Lake.  Sparkleberry Pond does not show up.  The map is a little off but it will get you there.

We will get to the campsite around 5:00pm Friday night and we will conclude are fun Sunday at noon.  If you plan on being early, send me an email ([masked]) and I will send you the gate code.

Sparleberry Pond is a beautiful site close to Econfina creek.  This will be car camping so no worrying about carrying heavy backpacks.  Fire pits (bring fire wood if you have some), grills (bring charcoal), and porta-potties are available.

Bring your musical instrument, telescope, or anything else you may want to add to this enjoyable weekend.

Bring your tent, sleeping bag/pad, food, drinks(non alcohol), small day pack, and other things you would like to make your camping enjoyable.

 

Saturday - we will take a nice hike up the ridge around the lake. Also bring your headlamps for a night hike.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
