1 year Anniversary Camping Trip

  • Sep 13, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's celebrate! This weekend in September will mark one year from the first time SocialMixin went camping- my, how time flies!!  We just need to ask the weather fairies and the yellow jacket gnomes for better luck! ;)

According to the park's website, all campsites are booked. If you did not book one and are willing to share a site, post in the comments. There may be someone with a site to share.

You'll be responsible for your food and supplies, although we can definitely gather at one campsite for socializing. (Sorry, the hosts have additional time constraints this go round that will not make it possible to prep, buy, etc for the entire group)

Campsites are only $20 a night, and can fit up to 8 people. Each site includes one vehicle, max 2 vehicles. The second vehicle will be charged $5 per night. Post in the comments if you want to share a site, then work out sharing in private messages.

Here's a fairly comprehensive camping checklist, if you need one

    Just a reminder, in case you didn't see the park's alert- There is a lot of construction going on at Ortega and the 5 freeway which are causing traffic delays. To avoid them, coming from the north, take the Oso Parkway or Crown Valley exits and turn Left. Go to Antonio Parkway and turn Right. At Ortega, you will turn Left to get to the park.

    See y'all soon!!

    Hey, campers. I am planning some activities, mostly silly games, to play while we are there. Also bringing cards, dominoes, and checkers/chess. We can also hike and/or take the nature walk.

    If you are not able to attend, please update your RSVP. All of the sites are booked, so if you booked one and are willing to share, post in the comments. If you didn't book one, post in the comments to see if someone will share with you.

    In regards to alcohol, because some people have asked. The campground rules do state no alcohol. I have stayed here a few times and as long as you are discreet and don't cause any problems, the rangers tend to ignore it. (Even once when there was several liquor bottles in plain sight.) again, discretion and moderation.

    Looking forward to it!!!

      Well, the weather is almost guaranteed to be warmer than last time. LOL So we won't have to be standing inside the fire ring again. :)

    Hey, kids, there are only 2 open campsites left in the loop where we will be. If you haven't booked yet, you might want to grab one! Otherwise, the majority of the "Ortega Flats" loop is still open, it's just a bit down the road.

      Hi, Ayesha! It would be great to see you again! Let us know if you're able to go and hopefully someone will have space to share. :)

    Will this be kid-friendly? Got my 4-year old... Thanks!

      Jennifer, We typically gather in the evenings and people will be drinking. Obviously, the camping and park are kid-friendly. If you are booking your own site, it is your call. There most likely will not be other kids with our group.

    I see several "loops" at the reservation site... which one are we in?

    August 13, 2013

    • Chrysta

      Jennifer the loop is Live Oak, right in the center of the park. Other loops are for horses or groups :)

    Got my site booked. There are still plenty left, but don't put it off and miss out!
