    So in April, there was a bit of chatter about doing a monthly meet-up. Maybe at WNF, maybe moving from site to site around the state. Two groups went camping at Wayne and everyone seemed interested in the idea.

    And now it's May...

    Are we doing this or what?

    I could put together a Caeser's Creek camp for June if there is interest. Or a meet up at Indian Lake / Grand Lake St. Mays.

    Either of those two works for me. I'm just outside of Troy in Casstown so basically in the middle of those two.

    Just can't do the first weekend. Will be busy with family; sister is retiring from the USAF. 22 or 23 years and rank of Major.

    26th of June?

    That is Memorial Day weekend. 3rd and final kid graduates from high school that day. Party is Sunday. Party for a cousin is on Monday.

    The following weekend, June 1 thru 3 is the sister's retirement mentioned above.

    May is just crazy busy. June, for the moment, is relatively clear.

    Don't you just love herding cats? :4:

    That works. Apologies for being "that person". Pick a date and run with it.

    Instagram guys are good people, please do invite them!

    I will check group site availability on Monday morning and reserve us all a site.

    The Day Lodge Group camp looks good: free, private, primitive.
    Horseman's Group Camp might have to be the back up option. Not free :11: but at least private and primitive.

    There is a good archery range next to the Day Lodge camping area.

    Jason, there’s also a pond with cattails!

    Yeah but without snow on the ground, pulling rhizomes out of the muck half-naked just isn't as fun.

    If there is interest in a second night, I can extend our reservation. I might not be able to stay Saturday night, though.
    Yep.... cat tail for dinner!

    I visited the sit yesterday and it's worth the money (free, hahaha.) It's a field next to the parking lot. Fire ring and some logs to sit on. No bathroom so bring your own TP. The trail to the archery range is right there so bring your bows, if you have 'em. The woods look nice, lots of downed wood.
    There are cat tails (Yum). The pond isn't so good looking for fishing, covered in green ???, but there are fish in the big lake nearby. Bring a rod.... or even a boat!​
    I'm trying to get the night of the 9th for anyone who want to stay until Sunday.

    Gotta work Friday, so I can probably be down to hang out for a while on Saturday.

    Hoping to be there Friday after work. It is close enough that I should be able to get there before dark, otherwise early Saturday morning. Being able to stay over on Saturday night would be a bonus. Might even try to drag the DW or possibly one of the kids along.

    Edit to add... Will anyone want eggs; either for eating there or to take home? Let me know and if we have them available I'll bring some along. Fresh from the chicken butt. :dblthumb:

    Eggs would be great! I'll make breakfast Saturday. Or brunch depending on when you get there.

    So is this going to be a meet and greet on Saturday or has it morphed into an overnighter into Sunday yet?

    @WY_Not
    It's morphed into a Friday - Sunday overnight camp. I will get there at 3ish on Friday and have to depart Saturday evening but y'all are welcome to stay until Sunday noon if you want. I have family stuff on Sunday. Don't trash the place ;) while I'm away.

    Never been there before. Is the group site open? Or are there trees for the hanging burritos in the group? Asking for a friend.

    Hey guys is this the site right off of 73? There is a group camp site there but it was 75 bucks last time i checked. This is across the street from the Beach area just down 73 a little bit. It is a big field but there is some woods right there to hang in. I will prolly hang if its the same spot as I'm thinking. That's cool if the site is now a free site, 75 bucks was crazy! In the back of the open field is a little section that has been cut out of the woods and I think this is where they would want us. The big open field would be great, lots of room!

    Should be near Hopewell Day Lodge. Map from their site. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but from looking at the sat map, the parking lot and camp site are about halfway between the lodge and the road marked on the map below. Just after the little elongated pond, I think.

    The Day Lodge is located off Clarksville Road. Clarksville Road is located off of State Route 73 East/West or off of Oregonia Road. Follow Clarksville Road to Middletown Road. There is a large sign at the intersection of Middletown and Clarksville Road leading you to the Day Lodge.

    That is the place! ^^^^^
    You won't see the pond from the road and the parking lot has a big sign for the archery range.
    Here's a picture of the site from the parking lot. I hope to get there early.

    The campsite is reserved for us Friday at 3pm until Sunday at noon.
    I myself have obligations Sunday morning and so will leave Saturday night but you all are welcome to stay another night. Just don't burn down the archery range or they'll hunt me down for damages!!!
    For certain, I will be there Friday through Saturday night.

    If the weather is like anything this past weekend this will be a tough outing in my book. Not much shade at the location or didn't look like much other than the woods. :) I actually came home early this past weekend, way too hot for an old guy! lol

    I'll have my pop-up shelter along just in case. Bring them if you have them.

    welp, I've gotten the go for an overnight! it's been too long since I've done that. hoping to get some bushclasses knocked out while there. @jswi2374 we'l see if the improvised shelter works (I'll try some more at home with it first) any chance of a debris bed at the site? and what's the wood situation-bring a saw/axe, or bring your own wood? I'll be down for some archery time too!
