You will however be expected to pay for your own camping arrangements with the State Park as well as your food.

Regarding Food - we are planning a dinner Friday night where CADS folks will be bring "most" of the food. Saturday night we are working to arrange a caterer to come in and cook us a meal. Everyone will have to pay the caterer for their meal (if they want that meal). We are expecting cost to be around $10 per person. As we get closer we will be flushing out the details.

There are Cabins for rent from $65 to $100 a night and sleep from 4 to 6 people. Tent and RV camping is $20 per night, and 2 tents are allow per site.

If you are trailering in just for the day their is a day fee of $5. We will have a section where our cars and trailers can park for the weekend or just the day.

There is also 3 group camping sites available if you have a team you are bringing. Those sites are $5 a head.

This area of Florida has several State Forests for us to use as well as Ocala National Forest. We expect to lead rides out on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We will also have routes sheets for adventure or dual sport routes.

Temperatures are expected to be a chilly 60-70 degrees that time of year

It is early so pick a spot and we can tell everyone else where to camp .

In the Park, the Lakeview Camping area is the one close to the Cabins. So most will be in that area.

Look forward to seeing you then.

Cheers

If you guys don't mind a WESTERNER joining you I'm in.

In the mean time you guys should try to make Turkey Trot V over here in the panhandle the second weekend in November...

See the Turkey Trot thread for details.

Don't want to haul two. If I big bike it on the DL I'll ride over. If I haul it'll be the DRjr, or the smoker.
