I'll be an early bird this year also.

We will have five kevlar carving gloves, six small blade carving knives, four hooked knives plus carving gouges, a wetterling camp ax, and other knives. You may want to check out what works best for you before you purchase a carving knife or glove for many carving knives are just for basswood or butternut. We can carve whenever you want to. Small knives are a little risky in very cold conditions but you can always sand or use a hatchet around a camp fire. Next time on the trail, check for crooked trees.

Ok, I am a bit confused. Wait wait, I am A LOT confused.
So the parking lot is just 1/2 mile from the camping area which is basically just a forest or is it more like a campground with designated sites?
I heard talk about a cabin and kitchen. Does everyone sleep outside at night then hang in the cabin during the day? If not, what do you guys do during the day?
Is this place far from civilization or close to a town?
Is it free to camp?
I am psyched to hear that some of you will be up there early (hammocking I presume) because Thursday and Friday should be no problem for me.

Camp will be where most bush camps are; in just the forest.
There is no designeted camp sites, no place to buy wood.
You got 320 acres to pick a spot and hang your hammock.
If you want a fire bring a saw and cut some wood.
During the day you can explore that 320 acres, ice fish on the lake, explore
7,500 acres of Andrew state Forest. Practise your camp skills, tell lies around the fire circle or if you like go to town get liquerd up and chase wild woman.
So far no one has expressed a interest in hanging out in a cabin.
Guess most don't go to the woods for that.
Being the best things in life aren't free . There will be a flat group charge for the use of the camps forest. Seeing most folks like to pay there own way in life, there be a hat to throw into for the use of that fine forest.
Some that are coming early in the week from far away plan to use the cabin to stay while they explore other things MN has to offer for folks from out of state.
Hope this helps to clear your confusing.
