Went this weekend.

It was chilly.

The campground walk-in loop trees have been trimmed way back, the sites and parking spots re-numbered, the bar doesn't sell pitchers of beer any more (pints only) and the steakhouse is now a buffet.

The rest of the park is still awesome, however.

Thanks man, sounds like I'm packing a few more pounds of food IN. Did you happen to see if the fire rings had grills on them?

There are grills on the new fire rings, I wouldn't want to depend on them to actually cook with as they are very high above the ground and not adjustable. You can only swing them in and out not up and down, at least the ones I saw a few weeks ago. Ok for fire roasting hot dogs I guess, not so good for charcoal BBQ ing

It is a pretty clean place

They sure do... One of my neighbors cooked T-bones, I grabbed one and it was delicious.

Anyone that knows the walk in loop will see how much the trees have been cut back.

I kinda missed sleeping in a tree cave.

But it was cool not hitting my head on branches

I'm back to debating on which bike to bring. The track bike I'm hoping will be gone tonight which will finance shocks for the pig. As long as I can balance the front wheel a bit better, then I might bring it.

However, if I go the little bike route, I'll bring the camper which means a full BBQ setup. I think the boss, baby, and mutts will come as well. Oh yeah, can we bring dogs to the campground there?

I liked it - never been there before, so I can't compare. Your guess is really close - I occupied #127

I had #128 this past weekend Fri-Sun.

Those trees used to have long branches that protruded directly towards the center of the aisle between the opposing camp sites, made for more shade, quiet, and privacy.

It's still a great spot, I still look forward to the trees growing back a bit though.

amongst all the planning/lack of planning, i seemed to have not made my own camping arrangements....

i'll be driving in with notmybikemodelname in the van. arriving Friday morning, leaving Sunday evening.

we bring multiple forms of alcohols.



any of you FF's have room for one more vehicle? i'll either sleep in the van or throw the tent down.
