    Small hang idea in Ohio

    I found out that some of the metroparks in Montgomery County have free camping. It has to be reserved but they supply the firewood too. The one I am interested is called Ash Camp at the Sugarcreek metropark. It looks awsome for a small group hang. There is a big firepit and an outhouse close by. There is also a spigot for water about 100 yards away at the pavilion. There are plenty of trails for a dayhike. I'm gonna call to see what the group size limit is. Anyways here are a few shots to give an idea of the space.

    Mike, I was at John Bryan Friday looking for a place to hang. Slim pickins on trees and too many dogs and kids, no offense to dogs and kids of course. Thanks for posting!

    I'm gonna reserve it for a weekend after the hoosier thing. Looks like a good hang spot.

    I reserved the Ash camp in Sugarcreek metropark for 4pm Friday 23 April to noonish Sunday 25 April. I gave an estimate of 20 campers for the permit so if anyone wants to join us PM me so I can keep a headcount. There are plent of trails to dayhike. Here is a shot of the campsite. The firewood is supplied, water is close, and there is an outhouse too. Here is the link http://www.metroparks.org/Parks/SugarCreek/Home.aspx

    Update!!!!

    So looks like rain all weekend here. Camping in the rain all weekend does not sound like a good time to me. I may go out by myself friday night just to test my gear but that may be about it. I may possibly come back out saturday night but we'll see.
