    Hocking River Canoe Trip

    Meet Saturday Morning 9:00am at the Public Canoe Ramp on Rt 93 in Logon, Oh near Kachelmacher Park. We will drive to park a couple of vehicles at the pickup spot. We can car pool so not everyone has to drive. We plan to be in the water no later than 10:30am

    We will be camping near Haydenville and Nelsonville on a section of Waynes Forest.

    Pull Out Public Ramp Nelsonville on Hocking Parkway drive Behind Rockyboot Store and Train Station.

    Bring chains or rope to lock boats up with.

    Once we have a count on how many we have coming I will post some suggested supplies we should bring.

    Doubt I'll be able to make this trip, but I'll keep an eye on the thread.

    I am bringing steaks to grill and potatos, for dinner, If someone want to bring some eggs and bacon for breakfast that would be great. I don't mind doing the cooking. I can also bring some Scotch and Jack. Blackhawk if you want to bring some of that home made wine I wont complain lol. For lunches sense we are going to be in the water I would say sandwiches would be a good idea. I will bring bread and some lunch meat.

    Make sure you bring drinking water or away to purify water, hopefully it wont be to hot like last trip.

    If anyone else is coming let me know so I can make sure I bring enough steaks.

    I’ll bring stuff for breakfast—maybe we can make some of @cory3087 famous spicy campfire biscuits and gravy. I’ll definitely bring bacon and eggs.

    Coordinates for the campsite would be good.

    The weather forecast looks to be variable. I’m hitting the road Saturday morning at 6:30 rain or shine. So, please let me know by 6:30 if for some reason you @dadman and @Blackhawk45hunter are cancelling.

    looks like according to the map there is a trail head there, can you hike that back to the river where you will be camping.

    Yeah. It’s a sort of foot path, not a real official trail, but it goes from the road in to roughly where we’ll be camping,

    i think i might go out there today and do a scouting report and check it out. i have seen cars parked there before but i thought it was always private property. so looking at the map does wayne n. f. go right up to the river on the st rt 278 stretch and from the trail head on.

    @sons of scotland the Athens and Hocking County auditor maps show the area south of the river and west of 278 is USA land. So we are good to go.

    i talked to evan today and detailed the spot where you guys are camping, it is only a 10 minute drive from where i live so i did a short recon of the area and it is a nice spot with plenty of camping on the sand bar if you want. i am sorry to say i cant float this with you guys but me and the wife are gonna stop by and hang out for abit saturday evening.

    here are a few pics of the campsite and river

    I’m not much of a photographer. I took most of the photos while my phone was in a ziplock bag.

    You say when. The weather was great, and we’re looking forward to another outing maybe late September or early October.

    if only it were that easy.....i'm currently jonesing just to find an hour or two in a metropark. i'll keep an eye out. i must say, it's great getting together with you all!!

    i will say this-we're trying to move, and if it happens, it's likely towards the lancaster area. that would sure cut down on the travel time to wayne and all. hoping that would increase the times out!
