Anyone interested, I'm putting out the invite for a group hang-hike and bike-kayak-canoe.
Last weekend in September, Yankee Springs Recreation Area. 5,000 acres, rolling hills, miles of trails with a seperate mountain bike trail course. We will be camping at the Deep Lake Campground, a rustic (no flush toilet or electric) campground. There is a real shower and toilet facility nearby at the Gun Lake Campground, that you can use, with your day pass.
Lots of trees to hang from, fishing at the lakes, pump water and vault toilets.
You can bring your heavy car camping set-ups, as this is a drive in camp.http://www.michigandnr.com/ParksandT...=511&type=SPRK
I wanted to do this in September, before the men in orange come thru the woods (hunters). Sites are $12.oo/night, reservations are not neccessary, very little traffic that time of year. No group site available, so if your interested, let me know and I'll try to get a few connecting campsites.http://www.michigandnr.com/Publicati...prings_map.pdf
Bring your own food for the most of the weekend. We will do a cookout Sat. or Sun. potluck style, so bring a dish to pass,if you'd like.
Yankee Springs/ Gun Lake area is south of Grand Rapids and north of Kalamazoo, East of 131.
Bring your canoe or kayak too, the Thornapple River is nearby, or paddle the lakes nearby.
12 miles of backwoods mountain bike trails, lots of connecting foot trails.
PM me if interested. Looking forward to meeting the faces that go with the names. Gargoyle
P.S. Family, wives and kids welcome....
