I need some feedback about reserving the groupsites at Pine Grove Furnace SP for the 2013 Spring Mahha. Reservations need to be made in plenty of time to assure us getting the group sites.
For those who have not been to PGFSP for the Mahha, check out past trip reports. The responses have always been positive.
Some advantages to PGFSP are:
Parking is close to the group sites
Plenty of trees for hammocking (last year 3 sites held 75 hangers and could hold more)
Family campground is close to the group sites
Pavilion can be reserved for our Sat Breakafast and dinner get together
Large campfire location within the group site..we resreved three sites last year
Hiking..AT runs through the park...several blue blazes
Biking paths, two lakes, AT Museum
I'm not opposed to looking at other sites but some legwork would need to be done to find suitable locations. If anyone has a suggestion or recommendations for an alternate site, please check it out and post a report with the advantages/disadvantages.
I would like to make the reservation in July so I can wait/forget about further planning until after the New Year.
Thanks for any feedback. The Spring Mahha is one of the favorite hangs and let's make 2013 no exception!!
