    I'm thinking Saturday it is. I may have to hit the hockey tournament on Friday, so that remains iffy.
    Any suggestions on campsites? I can probably get out there by early-mid afternoon. Should be flirting with the 60s on Saturday

    Hey, Pizza, I took your advice from a video you did and snagged campsite #2 at the Lighthouse last year. I hiked in with my daughter. The site worked great and we had a blast. Thanks!

    Right on. Looking forward to meeting you Saturday then. I've only been to Afton once at site 12. Perhaps some of the others that have been there more can suggest a good site.

    Campsite 6 is usually where we seem to end up. Its a good site with a lot of trees and a nice view of the river. We usually drift over to campsite 5 as well if there is a lot of guys.

    The November Afton hang used site 5 as base and spread out mostly towards site 6. I used site 3 but I would not recommend it for more than one hammock - only one decent pair of trees. 12 its nice but maybe not enough room for a group. I remember thinking the sites around 18 looked workable over the summer.

    Wish I could make it but got a family thing Saturday.

    Campsite 6 like "db" suggested is the one to go to.

    Kiba and I are a 90% yes to go for Saturday night as things are looking good for us. Should be a fun night out in the woods.

    I'm in for Saturday! Not sure if I'm bringing the pup. Does Kiba like to play?

    I leave Sunday afternoon for Georgia, but I may be able to convince my wife it's a good idea and the canoe site is at the bottom of the hill and next to the river and I believe there are a good amount of trees...

    Yeah, she loves to play with other dogs. She will probably be "Standoffish" for the first 5 minutes, just like she is with people. But, after that she will be all over everyone with lots of puppy lovin'.

    Just ask Stairguy. lol
