    Anyone interested in Group hang Lake oconee, Putnam County Georgia

    When i introduced myself I said I was retired, well thats not quite true. My wife Barb and I run Lawrence Shoals Campground for Georgia Power 3 months out of the year. We close Sept 14th and I have permission to use the campground for a group hang after we close. We have a tent area as well as RV area, both have picnic tables, grills and plenty of trees
    The pics are of tent area and I think that would be the best since it is close to the lake. There are showers and restrooms, a large covered Pavilion with group size charcoal grill if we want to have a group cook. Water and electricity in the area. Also we have 15 miles of hicking, bicycle trails and some off road mountain bike trails. Boat ramp and a boat dock in the tent area if you have boats, kayaks canoes whatever. We also have two archery ranges, standing and 20 3d targets. Also bordering the campground a wildlife management area archery only for those so inclined. If interested I am thinking maybe early October but anytime ok after Sept 14th. We are located 25 miles south of Greensboro on Ga hwy 16 halfway between Eatonton and Sparta. Also a playground for small children, and there is the Rock Hawk Effigy on the trails. This is a Native American artifact, there is a viewing tower for this and also a walking history museum of the area. Fishing, boating, hiking, eating and most important hanging. I have never been to one but have access to this so thought I would give it a shot. No charge for campground or anything. If y'all are interested I will go for it. Maybe we can set a date after some input.

    Not much response to the oconee hang. Something i didn't do. Was this the way to post this. I'm sorta new to forums and hammocks so sorta stumbling around here for now. Any ideas or help appreciated. Thank y'all each and everyone for such a great forum.

    I just saw this. Looks like a cool place to hang, especially after it's closed for the season. It's a little far out for some people to commit. Nice to pencil it in on the calendar though.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!

    I see a good time coming. I like it, plan away.
    If you prepare for failure you will probably succeed.
