Return to "Coon Point", part the second. Forestree, Nonc-Tobe, and I would like to invite you lot to our next canoe trip, back to Coon Point, on the beautiful southern end of Toledo Bend Lake on the LA/TX border. All are invited, but those found drunk, disorderly, and ill-behaved will be shot and left under a log, (or if you don't want to be shot, we will cover you in honey and bury you in a red ant nest.) Dogs generally are best left home in a group setting like this. The put in is off the Forest Service road at the end of TX FM 2168. If you Google Map search, zoom into the south end of the lake and you'll see it. Directions will eventually follow in this thread, along with a map. It's maybe a 20' carry from truck/cartop to water's edge, though the last 200 yards of road is rough in spots. Any truck can make it. My Corolla made it last time. From the put-in, we paddle about a mile south-west and camp on a point. Nonc-Tobe at least will go out Friday afternoon, so there will be at least one person doing that. Aside from that, there is no plan. Bring your own food, shelter, water, and gear to stay out for the nights you come. If you don't have a canoe but want to come anyway, there are roughly 3 extra seats/paddles/PFDs, and if we have to, we can shuttle. It's not that far. The site is primitive, plenty of trees to hang hammocks or tarps from, and the water is actually boilable/treatable if you don't want to schlep it. I will bring my Whelen just because it's easy and makes a good kitchen for me on trips like this. Forestree, I can bring a dutch oven and some fixin's for cobbler if you'd like to supervise the prep. We generally have a group fire for cooking/BSing/campfire gathering in the evening, and I'm hoping (hint hint) Forestree can bring a largish tarp for that. That's pretty much it. I'll get a map up shortly.
