Camping & Biking Weekend at North Kettle Moriane, WI
The longest running Pine Point Ski Club camping & biking trip! We are returning to the Kettle Moraine (north) again this year - where we have the entire hill top reserved just for us :) Check out some hiking photos from 2017: https://www.meetup.com/Pine-Point-Ski-Club/photos/28052014/ Bring family and friends and join us for camping weekend at Benson’s Campground near Campbellsport, Wisconsin, about a 3.5 hour drive from Chicago. We encourage you try out the weekend activities Pine Point has in store for you, however, if you just want to come out and spend a lazy weekend in the woods – that will work too :) The "official" rides are on Saturday, with 38, 56, and 76 mile road routes. So bring your bike (or your SKATES to join Jason) and get ready for a few hills and some great scenery. We will have maps and trip sheets for each rider. If you are not up for that kind of road distance, there is mountain biking, hiking, and a beach nearby. I'm sure we will have people doing all of those! Sunday options depend on your energy level; road ride - using one of the defined route or MTB ride in the Kettle Moraine State Forest (near Greenbush). Most people usually show up at the campground before dark Friday evening, because it’s just easier to put up a tent when you can see what you’re doing. The campsite is relatively isolated from civilization, but the bathrooms and hot showers are just a short walk down the hill. If the bike ride isn't enough for you, the campground has a volleyball court, horseshoe pit, and a small beach on Long Lake along with a couple of kayak & canoes to rent out . AGENDA: Friday- Arriving at the campground, setting up tents. We will be starting a fire 7.30ish, meaning the dinner will come off the grill around 8:30 pm Saturday- Breakfast in the woods, biking/skating during the day. Lunch on your own (usually at Fudgienuckles in Glenbeulah WI - and yes those are the real names ;-) For dinner, it will be Dutch treat at the Idlewile Inn, in St Cloud. We are returning to this supper club as they have some of the best food in the area. Sunday- Breakfast followed by more biking/skating (whatever you can handle), leaving for home whenever you want. PROVIDED BY PINE POINT: • Camping space in a private area just for our group • Firewood • Friday night BBQ (burgers, hot dogs, salad, chips & salsa, dessert) • Saturday & Sunday breakfast (cereal, bagels, fruit with hot coffee/tea) • Maps & guidance for 38, 56 and 76 mile routes • Awesome company of outdoor enthusiasts WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING: • A tent & relevant camping equipment • A great attitude & fun spirit • Rain gear (just in case) • Swim suit • Your own beverages • Some $$ for Saturday lunch (along the biking/skating route) and Saturday dinner • A bike or skates or hiking shoes • Quarters for the shower CARPOOLING: Available.

    What we're about

    Thank you for stopping by!

    Pine Point Ski Club is an athletic, recreational and social club of about 200 members. We schedule several Western ski trips annually as well as a number of local Midwest ski trips,usually kicking off the season in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (http://www.meetup.com/Pine-Point-Ski-Club/photos/25797896/). Most of our members are between the ages of 25 and 55, are single, and live throughout the Chicago area. We also have a number of married couples, some having first met at the club!?! Although skiing and snowboarding (yes we do have snowboarders in the club) is our main interest, we offer a year-round schedule of activities. Annual favorites include a Kettle Moraine camping/biking trip (http://www.meetup.com/Pine-Point-Ski-Club/photos/23797902/), white water rafting trip in West Virginia (http://www.meetup.com/Pine-Point-Ski-Club/photos/24729742/), Chicago Blues Festival (http://www.meetup.com/Pine-Point-Ski-Club/photos/22666172/) and outdoor picnics under the blue sky and wine tastings (http://www.meetup.com/Pine-Point-Ski-Club/photos/25282272/).

    We have skiers and snowboarders at all levels: racers, mogul monsters, cruisers, terrain park masters, and raw beginners. If you have never been on the snow before - we will be honored to guide you though this amazing experience. In addition, we offer racing through Chicago Metropolitan Ski Council (CMSC). It's a great way to improve upon your skiing/snowboarding and a lot of fun.

    The club has been in existence for over 40 years and we have great networking with other ski clubs as well as ski shops in Chicago and ski resorts all over the western U.S. We are a very friendly group and we are always looking for new members to share our passion for outdoors activities.

    We meet every 3rd Tuesday of the month for our regular monthly club meeting (http://www.pinepointskiclub.com/monthly-meetings), come check us out and learn about this season's trips!
