    as of right now, i have one camp site paid for. the minimums for groups are 10 people. so aside from myself and a friend, there are 8 spots available before more money is needed. id like to come up with the money for another "site" so we can officially have more space.


    the price per 10 people is 32.61, give or take a few cents. that covers the campsite for 3 days for 10 people. ive already done the first 32, and have spots in that site that are paid for. if i have the spare cash, ill go ahead and get another site at some point.

    if anyone thats definitely coming could help and paypal me a little to cover the costs, i could go ahead and reserve another site.

    if that all makes sense.

    It would be a great help if people who are coming could help me out with $5/person to cover the site for the 3 days. $5 total will cover all 3 days per person. 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)

    rev- you might want to start a spreadsheet on google docs for ppl to sign up on. It will help keep the numbers straight.

    heres the link...let me see what I can do
    https://spreadsheets.google.com/spre...NpRkE&hl=en_US


    if youre coming and have a guest with you as well, please include them below your name and mark with an *. i need to know the total head count just to be accurate for the park. the manager there was nice enough to talk to me about the hammocks and our special needs, so i want to make sure everything is good for him as well so we can come back with no issues. and the sooner the better chance we get more sites. thanks

    also, on the sheet theres spots for people to put if they can bring or help with the potluck, if youll be doing any "vehicle" activities (bikes, water stuff) and fishing. just to get an idea of who wants to do what. those columns are for people who are bringing things to do this, not just want to (ie: bringing their kayak to do that, not " i want to kayak")

    thank you all for pushing for this. I think this will be a great meet up. and heck, if im the only one there, ill have a beach all to myself for a weekend on a beautiful lake!

    if you count the maybe's (theyre strong maybe's tho. the man has a plan) theres only 1 spot left of the already paid for site.

    as the money becomes available, ill make room for more people. this isnt limited to size, just cash. its 32.61 per 10 people for the 3 days. ive already started on the second batch for funds, so thank you to those who contributed.


    just a small reminder. this is a family and pet friendly place. if you want to bring kids, so much the better but i still need to know. there is also NO ALCOHOL at the campsite, with rangers checking occasionally.

    also, some warnings, just to be safe:

    *there are possibilities for "wildlife encounters" including but not limited to alligators, big mosquitoes that can carry off a small child, and snakes. please be aware and prepare.
    * there is a place called sinkhole lake. nearby, youll see 20-30ft deep holes straight into the ground. they are fenced off, but not by anything anyone cant go thru, under or over.
    * the beach that is next to the campsite is nice, but there are signs warning of sudden and steep drop offs. theres also a section that is water covered rock, that you can walk on for a good long while ( i didnt get to the edge or where it got too deep, i was mid calf in the pics). a lot is covered in very slick algae, some in clam shells (smooth ones.)

    in general, keep an eye on kids and look out for nature, just as you would any place else.

    Thanks for putting this together REV. I hope to be changing my status on the spreadsheet from maybe to YESSIREE very soon (say, w/in a week or so). This looks like a great spot to hang. I can't wait.

    Its been a while since I stayed there (It was pre-hammock), but from memory I think there is a boat ramp and parking for power boats too.

    Most of you probably know this since this is a "local" hang, but there are a lot of submerged trees in the lake so you have to be careful when boating.

    An aluminum jonboat would be best. Just wanted to mention this in case anyone was interested.

    most boats i saw were shallow type fishing boats, so yeah. id definitely warn about that.

    the good news too about the boat situation, you can see the boat ramp and parking for trucks and trailers from where we hang.

    i think i have some more videos, i just came back from day 2 out there (oh the sacrifices i make for you all to have a good time )


    some other things, in case all the vids suck.

    first, some good news and some odd news.

    ive talked to the rangers out there about the "camping area #4" thing (theres something like 5 "areas"). they think, since we go where tents cant, that we can go just about wherever in the "primitive camping" area so long as we arent in the way of others that may be camping aside from us. but theres tons of trees near the water, right at the slope and other places. were on the opposite side of the restrooms and the big open area. so theyre willing to work with us.

    now for the odd stuff.

    alligators. last year, the found and removed (probably stuffed) a 13ft, 670lb alligator. when i went for a walk today on one of the trails (did the sinkhole pond loop.) and when i looked in this little mudhole called a pond, there were 4-1ft long babies. (i really had to stop myself from going in and grabbing one...)

    so, with that in mind, i went to the beach, where id found a partial animal skeleton yesterday. today, i found the rest.

    a 3ft fish. i wish i was making this up. it was apparently a snack... but it means fishing theres gonna be interesting...

    its really cool that your putting in this much effort to get this thing going man! should be a great hang.
