UPDATE: We've decided to try to make this happen! Richard and Susan, Bob, David H. and I are going. There is a shelter onsite, so if you want to come for the potluck and bonfire, it starts around 6 p.m.
Time to shake out our camping gear and get ready for the summer season! This is an overnight campout that gives you an easy way to check your tent and enjoy a full bonfire at night -- best of all, since it's an overnight, you don't really need to bring all of the clothing and food required for a weekend getaway. You can get away with just bringing a dish for Saturday night's potluck, how simple is that?
We're heading to a beautiful state park within a quick drive of just about anywhere in Kitsap County. Penrose Point State Park is a 152-acre marine park on the shores of Mayo Cove and Carr Inlet with over two miles of shoreline. The group camp site is terrific, with a covered shelter, barbeques, a fire pit and pit toilets; flush toilets are just an easy stroll away.
There is plenty of room for tents and four RV pads (if you are reserving one of the RV pads, please state this in your RSVP).
What you need to bring: your tent or RV and gear, a dish for the potluck on Saturday night, wood for the bonfire (if you have it) and food for breakfast if you want to eat at the campsite; you can also plan to eat breakfast on the Key Peninsula, in Gig Harbor or back home.
Camping fee is $10 (could be less if we have more people participating).
You do NOT need a Discover Pass if you are parking in the group camping space. We are limited to 14 cars and 4 RVs. When you arrive, tell the park ranger you are with the Peninsula Boomer Zoomers.
UPDATE: check in time is 2 p.m. If you get there before me, the reservation is in my name. Potluck will start around 6 p.m.
