Camp/Cookout/Ren Faire

  • May 10, 2013 · 1:00 PM

Let’s get together for a Camp & Cookout. My landlord has some property on Lake Anna that is perfect for a good camping trip. It’s about 1.5 hrs from Alexandria, VA. There is a pavilion area with barbeques, sinks, and fridges; a bathroom area (built around a clean port-o-potty, but it beats the woods!); and a grocery store nearby.

I'll probably head to the lake on Friday, May 10th and you're more than welcome to come down then, too.

As Eugenia mentioned, there is a small Renaissance Faire opening May 11th near Lake Anna. I've included a link below:

Things to do:

Renaissance Faire
Swim in the lake
Waterslide from the dock
Boating
Fishing
Fire Pit
Swings
Barbeque
Board Games

You’re all welcome to bring your favorite food, drinks, board games, outdoor games, and musical instruments.

      Let me know if you need anything from Food Lion. Literally 3/4 of a mile from the campsite.

    First one here! This place is amazing! We're going to be so spoiled this weekend.

    Excited! Is anyone bringing camping pots or pans (ie without plastic handles)?

    May 10, 2013

    • Jennifer

      I've never cooked with pots with plastic handles at a campsite bc of the tendency of the plastic to melt. If you haven't had that problem, then great! I wanted to make spaghetti for the group.

    Can I say potentially dangerous yes? I'll try to go to another event beforehand so that I can get a feel for the group and vice versa.

    Lake Anna is beautiful and a lot of fun. Don't think I can make this though as my schedule next week is going to be hectic.

    Oh hey. Just realized this was Mother's Day Weekend. I can still come, but will need to run off Sunday morning to Reston. Thought you guys might want to know in case you need to plan ahead (like, I will be ordering my flowers ahead of time...).

    My tent can fit 2-3 comfortably, and I have a bunch of citronella candles.

    Jerri/Claudia: Sorry you can't make it. :( The NoVA Star Trek group is hosting a Cookout on June 8th. No camping, but it should still prove fun.

    Would love to go if you ever do it again. I'll be out of town that weekend :-( VA Renn Faire is small but fun. Saw some of the best entertainers there.

    I hope you offer this again soon! Sounds like a slice of heaven on earth!

    That Saturday is rather packed for me, but might be able to camp for the Friday night. I was actually just about to buy a tent for a trip later in May. :-)

    I believe I saw that Faire on my way to the Campsite last year. That would be a great event to attend while we're there. Thanks for mentioning it!

    The VA Renn Faire (tiny, but I like it) is at the Lake Anna Winery then as well.
