2019, Oct. 3-6: Fall NOG - 2019 Northern Oregon Gathering

Oct. 3-6, 2019 Silver Falls State Park (near Salem, Oregon)

Due a 'broken' website, and a number of phone calls by Kathie N. (Dave&Kathie) to ReserveAmerica and the Oregon State Park system, we're now able to make reservations!

People call it the 'crown jewel' of the Oregon State Parks system, and once you visit, you know why. Silver Falls State Park is the kind of standout scenic treasure that puts Oregon firmly onto the national - and international - stage.

There are a TOTAL of 52 sites with electric and water at Silver Falls State Park. Two in B loop are ADA compliant. There are four yurts in B loop with trailer site parking attached. Two of those are ADA compliant. There are 10 electric and water sites in A loop at the far north end. (see attached map). If you want to attend Fall NOG, do not delay getting your reservations. To view photos of specific sites: Silver Falls State Park - Campsite Photos and Camping Information

This should be a great time to visit Silver Falls State Park. Oregon's Premier State Park! http://oregonstateparks.org/index.cf...age&parkId=151

You can either make reservations online ReserveAmerica or 1-800-452-5687 http://www.reserveamerica.com/campin...&parkId=402235

Check out these sites for flower activities in the area: The Oregon Garden in Silverton, Oregon. Which also has "The Gordon House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright." Oregon Garden an 80-acre Botanical Garden In Silverton Oregon Frank Lloyd Wright - The Gordon House - Home

The park doesn't rent/reserve shelters for use after Sept. 30. So, IF the weather is nice, we'll hold the Fri./Sat. meetups in my site. Otherwise, there's a couple of nice shelters we may be able to use. THAT decision will be made on SUNDAY, Sept. 29.

I've chosen site B3 and as usual will keep a park map updated and a list of names going for those that have made reservations here: https://www.casitaforum.com/invboard...gon-gathering/

Hi Donna! Have not been here before. Looking at campsite photos am interested in tent sites 46-65 as are on creek. There are rv sites still available but want the perfect site w some privacy. Your thoughts? Thanks, Julie

Julie, because this is a fall gathering and Silver Falls is a fairly high elevation, if you CAN, get a site with services. All the unserviced tent sites are beautiful, but they're back in a heavily treed area. IF it's cold, you may be VERY cold. However, if you're looking for privacy, you'll probably get it because it's doubtful too many people will be back there.


I hope this helps. And hope to see you there!

Thank you Donna. Just the advice I was seeking.

You are most welcome. I can only tell you about myself. I'm a very private person. I mean.. look at my goofy avatar! That's not me. When I camp by myself, I want privacy and quiet. But gatherings are different... in the morning I fix myself a cup of coffee, step outside my trailer and look around. WHO has a campfire going and do I need to bring a chair? For me, gatherings are less about 'camping' and more about meeting the people.

I wish you well

You're welcome Laura. IF you come to the park and stay overnight, let me know your accommodations... and site info. I'd like to get you on the Participants list and map. I'll be posting the schedule of events, etc. around the middle of September.

I’m so glad you responded to my post. After the message I received from a different organizer earlier, I was feeling pretty uncomfortable. You said exactly what I needed to hear. I’m looking forward to meeting you in real life.
Thanks,
Laura

Looks like all the trailer sites are full (good for you!). We get our trailer next week and would like to register even if it means a no-hook-up, tent site. Do you think that will still work even if we are a bit further away?

Yep, as long as you fit in the site, you'd be good to go. Just know, it may be cold in October at Silver Falls State Park in October (we've had sleet and snow at previous gatherings!). As long as you're prepared for it, you'd be fine. Once you get a site reserved, let me know so I can get you on the Participants List and map. Fun times ahead!

Hi Donna, we have a reservation for #29 in Loop B for the 3rd till 7th. Pretty sure we made this res before we picked up our 5.0 in April! Was looking at what future trips coming up and saw the NOG and thought "have we let anyone know we're coming?" Looked at your list and see we did not! Apologies.
Looking forward to the gathering!

We were just wondering how you guys were and if you were coming to the NOG. Looking forward to camping with you!

PLEASE READ.

We do not have a shelter reserved. Reservations for day use shelters ends on Sept. 30. The major issue is everyone would need to drive to the shelter(s) leaving the campground empty. You'd probably want to put "stuff" away. Ahhh no. So the Friday and Saturday food events are PLANNED to be held at my site B3. IF THESE PLANS CHANGE DUE TO THE WEATHER, I'll post the information by NOON on Fri., Oct 4 at my site.

I will post the weather forecast for Oct. 3-6 before I leave Wed. (10/2) morning. Plan for for any kind of weather. Over the years we've seen it all!

THE Schedule of Events such as it is...

Daytime hours are completely unscheduled. Feel free to do what you wish. Sleep in, hike the falls, go to town, play cards, sit-and-visit, etc., etc. As far as trailer tours, nothing scheduled for that either. If you see folks sitting outside, stop and chat and ask to see their trailer. I've found most have an informal open house.

DON'T FORGET TO BRING/WEAR A NAME TAG. I'm meeting some of you for the first time. Help me to remember your name, please.

FRIDAY NIGHT NO-HOST DINNER-ON-A-STICK: You will want to bring a chair. This is not a potluck, bring everything you need, including your roasting stick. Fire will be roaring, come by anytime after 5PM.

The fun/funny stuff:
CRAFT BEER EXCHANGE
6PM SHARP
FRIDAY NIGHT

This is an "opener" event.
Bring a six pack of craft beer, trade one bottle or can for a different kind.

Everyone is welcome at anytime to anything. If you're not a beer drinker that's perfectly okay. Please join us. Beer/food is secondary to the good times we'll have around the fire.

SATURDAY NIGHT POTLUCK: Serving of food will start SHARPLY at 5pm. Come a few minutes early to get your food on the table before serving starts. Bring an appetizer, entrée, salad or dessert to share that feeds 6-10 people and your table service.

Always plan to bring a chair.

Please, no pets at any of the food events.

Hope this helps with some questions. Post if not, we'll get the question answered.
