I was just looking at that campgrounds website on Sunday, can't tell too much from the pictures. Have you been there before? How is it ? Big sites, clean? Does it get crowded at that time of the year? Just curious. :thinking: :)

Hi Doug

The sites are good size. I'm told it does get busy. I have only camped there in May so I can't say much about how it will be in July. It's a nice park with 3 lakes and lots of trails for hiking and biking. One of the lakes has a swimming beach. The other 2 are more fishing lakes.

The first time we drove thru to check it out was about this time of year and there were tent campers there in the snow.

Hope that helps. Are you thinking about coming up for our gathering?
Stu

Just made resevations for Friday 7/17 and Saturday 7/18, site 210.

We were at the Ionia gathering couple years ago.

We had the Camp Inn and two dogs.

See you then.

:( I'm sorry to say that we had to cancel the reservations for this coming weekend. Something came up.

We ordered a new model Camp Inn that should be ready to pickup the end of July. It'll have more options than our current one and options that weren't avaible then. This new one will have AC, TV/DVD, roof vent/fan, screen doors, city water hookup and most importantly 2 Doors. Can't wait.

Let us know of any other gatherings.

We're sorry to hear you won't make it. Rocky has been talking about a fall color gathering. If we manage to get that together, I'll let you know.

That sounds like a nicely equipped trailer. I'm looking forward to checking it out. I don't think I've heard of one with city water hookup. :)
