Re: Event Information

So do we need o call and pay for our tent spots, or do we just pay once we get there? Are there showers or anything like that there?

Re: Event Information

Ya there are showers there. The bathroom set up with showers is pretty decent actually, just at the bottom of the hill from group site. I might try to come out for the friday saturday timeframe to kick it. No wheeling for me though, unless I think I can get the dodge through chinamens.... hmmmm

Re: Event Information

Fred,

I plan to camp with you guys on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. I tried to reserve a site with you by calling Cathy, but she said I would have to either reserve a spot adjacent to the sites or just hope there is a spot when I arrive on Thursday.

Will there be a spot for me to camp with the crew, park my truck with trailer, and Jeep or should I reserve a spot? Would like to meet everyone and hang out, but not thrilled about paying $32 a night for an adjacent spot when I can camp down the road for $0 and drive in the mornings. Let me know. Thanks.

John.

PS It will just be me, the wife, and the 2 dogs.

Re: Event Information

The group site can fit up to 40 tents, I believe, so just show up and tell them you are with . We may have to move people around, who knows. I believe they have extra parking. Most campgrounds that host jeeps do. I haven't been there, so anyone who has should chime in.

Re: Event Information

So its $8 a night correct? Are there trees around our camp to pitch up tarps and cover for the tents from the rain? Do they have a area to wash dishes and all that good stuff.

Re: Event Information

Haven't been there, so I don't know. I'm sure there are some trees, and pitching the tent on Tues. should give you some choice. It's a commericial campground that we have used previously with the users being happy.

There are trees, moost were at the edge between the camping and parking areas...in the middle of the group area there is more of a tall brush type plant (scrub oak?) and not so much trees. If my memeory serves me right.

Re: Event Information

The camping area has scrub bushes/trees. Not particularly great for stringing a rope for a tarp tent. It has portapotties about 50 yards away. Down the hill, it has nice bathrooms, a laundry with a large sink.
