Heck, I thought you all were talking about Labor Day weekend? I certainly won't be out this weekend.
**The parking issue was strictly with that particular DNR guy, not with the other, and that was the only time we had an issue. Of course, let's face it, our hang was exceptionally big that weekend and everyone was trying to squeeze in that one lot rather than spread out a bit better.
Sorry, Trail Runner is talking about scouting out the area and getting info from a Ranger for Labor Day weekend for a large group.
Sorry about any misunderstanding.
I just got new gear and want to test it out before a whole weekend.
OK...well, I'm still a possible for Labor Day weekend; as long as I'm not taking the boys to Cedar Point (please Lord no Cedar Point, PLEASE NO!!!)
OK, I went down to Mohican early Saturday morning and signed up for site 9 then drove the short distance over to the Ranger Station/State Forest Office and waited until 8am to knock on the door. No answer so I waited another 15min and no signs of life there (there is actually a snow shovel leaning against the building right next to the door). Checked there twice more there throughout the day and no signs of life.

At the kiosk it states that "sites cannot be reserved and are first come, first served" but also states that "sites can be signed for in advance." Obviously contradictory info.
I'm confident that if we choose Mohican we can get a good site since I'll be down there Thursday afternoon.
I Think Mohican will work. We need to get a loose head count so we know if we need site 10 or 9. 9 is closer to the parking area and might be good for hawling in extra water and what not. 10 is a nice site if we have a smaller group.
So, let your friends and family know so we and get a count.
P.S. It was nice to meet you Trail Runner.
Ohio,Aug.30-Sep. 2 Labor day weekend
I'm in for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
I'm in for Thursday - Sunday. I'll haul in a few gallons of store-purchased spring water on Thursday evening or Friday morning so we won't have to worry about filtering or making a run into one of the campgrounds for water. Speaking of which, the water from the hand-pump in Campground B is horrible...smells like rotten eggs and doesn't taste good at all.
I'll leave it up to you good people to decide which of the sites you would like to use if we have 6 or less people planning to attend. It will have to be site 9 if we have more than 6 people.
While writing this post I realized that I/we may of hijacked the OPs thread? My apologies if that is the case.
