2019, Oct 24-27: Fall Rally at Hungry Mother

Every year I wonder how many folks will chance the weather this late in the Fall, and every year I'm happily surprised. So here we go again.
We did decide to move it a week earlier this year. Hungry Mother State Park has a very good restaurant but we've been missing it because it closes at the end of October. We decided to move the rally to the last weekend in October and reserve a dinner for Friday night. If we have 20 folks sign up I think I can get us a private dining room and a very good price. I'll be able to confirm that sometime in March.
We usually have about 14 rigs and 20+ folks, including quite a few regulars.
To make reservations, ask for Camp Burson, which has water and electric hookups. Some sites also have sewer hookups at a small premium. Hungry Mother is a beautiful lake park with great hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulties. There are also many nearby attractions and eateries and rally participants seem to all have a good time.
With fall leaf colors getting later every year, we had some beautiful scenery in '18 for an added attraction.

Walt

Hi Walt, As luck would have it, I have a reservation at Creekside that weekend arriving Friday. Would love to join the group for dinner. I will have a girlfriend with me so please plan for 2. We'd love to join you all for other activities you may plan.
Looking forward to it.

Reservations at
https://www.reserveamerica.com/explo...40174/overview

Hungry Mother is the name of the park, and the Specific campground is Camp Burson.
Any site will work, but we tend to cluster in the 5 rows with site numbers in the 20s through 40s. See the site map.

I hope to see you there.

Walt

The Roost featured this rally in last November's issue: https://mailchi.mp/ac29e96a062f/the-...er-2018-events


That should give you more info.


Walt, I'm putting the 2019 rally on the map today.

Thank you.
Folks, that article is very complimentary, but more important it's very informative about things to do in the area. A good read.
