    Ok guys, its official. September 30-2, santee state park. Bring your kids, kayak and hammock. Take a swim in lake marion, paddle to the cyprus swamp, cook fireside and have fresh running water. Fishing permits are $10 annually for locals, $11 for a week for out of state. Pics and videos to come, still out here!

    Also, just to tease, the location is 10 yards from the beach and a boat ramp is very close.

    Santee State Park (http://www.southcarolinaparks.com/pa...-park/535.aspx)
    We are at the Group Camping Area (http://www.southcarolinaparks.com/co.../MapSantee.pdf)
    September 30 - October 2. Ill be getting there early Friday morning.

    IMPORTANT!!! I have reserved a site for all 3 days with the little bit of cash I had. At this point, 10 people are paid for (8, minus myself and a friend) via the reservation. If we go over that, its like, $2-3 a person/day ($32.61 per 10 people for the 3 days.)

    It would be a great help if people who are coming could help me out with $5/person to cover the site for all 3 days. $5 will cover 1 person for all 3 days. im not requiring it, but it would help cover the site already secured and getting another site. my paypal is dmk_132003@hotmail.com, and if you would please send as a gift. once i come up with enough to get more sites ill do that (i wish i had enough to rent the entire area. would be almost 200 i think)

    IF youre coming for sure, please let me know here and via PM so I can make sure everyone is good and has a "spot" I would appreciate anyone that can donate to cover campsite fees. Id like to reserve one more "site" to make sure we have a lot of options. After 8 commit to come, then we can move on with figuring out the rest which will require $5/person for the 3 days. We will be in the Boy Scout primitive area. The rangers there said there shouldnt be an issue with us spreading out, since we usually are where tents arent anyway.

    So heres some interesting points:

    * Right around the corner from the Sinkhole Pond hiking trail (real and very deep sinkholes
    * Pets and Kids welcome
    * Restrooms on site (real ones, not port-a-potties)
    * Beach within site on Lake Marion
    * Boat landing within site, as well as parking
    * Tap water and fire rings on site, as well as picnic tables
    * Fishing licenses are available on site, from the Tackle shop. $10 for Local for a year, $11 for out of state for a week. Striped bass in the lake!
    * Boat tours of the cypress swamps
    * Playgrounds in the park
    * Onsite tackle shop, with a nice little sitting area (in the main park area)
    Videos and pics to follow.

    Probably best to start a new thread with location and date in the title. Lots of pics would be good too but isn't that always the case?

    Ok so that's an 1 for a Huntington coastal hang.

    I'll put santee on my calendar and get my gear ready.

    Are we going to do like a pot luck kind meal/s (everyone bring something for the meal) or fend for your self?

    Huntington Beach is Awesome. Trees nicely spaced and some very nice wide open spaces for the kids to run and play.

    Well done REV. Looks like a great area. Nice facilities and cost is great. I'll spread the word for you to a couple other hammockers that I know and get them to chime in if they are interested. Wish I could make this one but studying calls....

    i would love to make this one , but i will be getting back from my california trip the weekend before and don't think i will be able to do it.
    after 2 weeks backpacking i may not be in the mood for more camping. maybe an overnighter.
    another place to think about for a future trip would be poinsett sp, lots of great hiking and camping.
    if i don't get to see you all, have a great trip and i will meet you all on the next one

    I'll try to find out when my son gets out of school tonight (starts back on Mon). I figure it'll probably be around 3 so we'd probably be up there around 6 by the time we get out the door. I've missed everything else this summer so I'm going to do my best to make this.
