I suggest George L. Smith State Park (Twin City, GA) or Crooked River State Park (St. Mary's, GA).
If there is a high level of interest then perhaps we can get two cabins.
Also, I will have a Zoom in December 2021 to talk about details and individual deposits.
The information below is tentative.
It's that time again to get back to nature.t back to nature. Some members could carpool from the Wal-Mart in Pooler for anyone living in Effingham County, SC, or the Pooler areas. Check-in is at 4:00 pm on Saturday, and checkout is 12:00 pm on Monday.
Cost: I am looking for at least 8 - 12 committed members. The final cost will be $60.00 - 80.00 per person (which covers the food and the cost of two days in the cabin). This final cost will depend on how many people attend and if we get a 2 or 3 bedroom cabin. The Pines Library Network allows you to check out a "Georgia State Park Pass" with a library card rather than paying $5.00 at the park entrance.
The entrance to the park and activities (bike and boat rental) are Not included in the cost above. Bike rental is $10.00 for half a day. Kayak rental is $40.00 for tandem (2 people in a kayak) or $30.00 for a single for 4 hours. The agenda is below:
Saturday afternoon: Meet in Pooler (at the Wal-Mart parking lot at 2:00 pm or meet at the state park. Get settled in (decide on roommates), potluck (everyone brings a dish) for dinner, talk, take a late afternoon walk around the park.
