    IL>Apple River, Walnut Grove Youth Campground> January 25th, 2014

    I have some new gear coming that I'd like to try out and was wanting to gauge interest in a Northern Illinois hang in mid-late January. I was thinking to go to Apple River Canyon State Park : http://www.dnr.state.il.us/lands/lan...le.htm#Camping

    Winter camping is allowed in the youth campground. There seems to be plenty of trees from google maps. Let me know if any preference as to date.

    Regards,
    Ryan

    I might be interested. Not sure if I'll get my new UQ in time though.

    I'm waiting on some down to finish up the UQ. I hadn't started to stuff it until recently. When I had filled it with the amount recommended, I wanted to put more in it. I started a job in St. Charles, that's why I hadn't been around the club at all.

    I will have to get in to next years' schedule but late January/early February might work for me. The first weekend in February might be a good one right now. Perhaps the weekend before.

    I've asked a moderator set the date in the heading to be January 25th. That's the weekend between the NFL Conference championships and the Superbowl.

    Hmmmm...I'm pretty sure I have a broken tailbone, but I'll keep watching here. If I feel better, this fits right into my State Park project...

    Hope you can join in, Jcavenaugh. "The best in tent camping: Illinois" by John Schirle lists this as a best for hiking and beauty.

    Are you just going out for one night? Im flying out on the 19th for the week, not sure what day Ill be back. If I have a day or two between flying back and the hang I may be good to go.

    I've camped in that campground, and I am not sure there us enough trees. In the regular campground yes, but the youth campground is pretty open with a few small trees. Mississippi palasades may be a better choice. I will be busy with the Scouts so I cannot make it.
