    Interest check - Southern Ontario/Eastern Michigan

    I would like to check interest on a group hang near my neck of the woods.
    When: October (exact weekend TBD)
    Location: Wheatley Provincal Park
    It is approx. a 45 minute drive from Windsor/Detroit, located on the North shore of Lake Erie.
    There are enough trees for lots of hangers, and spread out enough that you could still have privacy if you want.
    The area could easily handle 50+ people, and good tenting spots are available too.

    Map/Directions:
    HERE

    Cost:
    $47.25 for the site (I will pay for this but will accept donations if anybody wants to help)
    $4.75/person
    $1.25/person (youth & senior)
    $3.75/car

    Facilities:
    Outhouse style privvy
    Running water/plumbing/sink

    Showers, flush toilets, are a medium hike/drive into the main campground.

    There are trails that lead to the lake, but make no mistake this would be a car-camping location.

    A campground map is available HERE. The specific site is 'Group Camping #2' in the North-East corner of the map (a very secluded area).

    Anybody interested?

    Looks good Rug. I'm interested.
    Whats the border crossing regulations (visa/passport)?
    Location wise, Ohio folks can make that trek, maybe some other neighboring states.

    Border crossing info for Americans:

    To cross into Canada you need the following:
    Birth Certificate and drivers license, or Passport.

    To return to USA you need:
    Passport, or Enhanced Drivers License

    To cross at the Bridge or Tunnel costs $5.00.

    Alalternative crossing location is the ferry at Sandusky Ohio.

    I missed out on the Ontario hang at Bon Echo Provincial Park because of work. It was also quite a drive. I would love to go to Wheatley. My wife and I have car camped there a couple of times but I'd love to go back with my new rig. It would be great to meet some of our cross border hangers as well. I sometimes work weekends and we are short staffed at work so if it was on a weekend I am off I would be in. What dates were you thinking?

    I would certainly be interested, but my schedule is constantly in flux, so commitment is difficult.

    I would love to but that weekend is already spoken for. Not sure how long it would take to get an enhanced drivers license either. Hoping that we can get something together for Oct. Sounds like a good place though.
