Christy,
I clicked on your link to check it out and all the sites in the "group site area" when clicked on, say that they are not reservable. Am I correct in assuming that some special arrangements must be made with the Park's "powers-that-be" in order to book sites in that area, and if so, what are we supposed to do or who are we supposed to call to get that area?
Greg

Greg.. i am working on that.... i think you do have to reserve it as a group.. i will find out sometime tomarrow hopefully and let you guys know...... I would be glad to call.... or like i said i will drive out there too

In my brochure its states that information and reservations is available in a separate Taidnapam park group camp information sheet and group camp reservation application. A minimum of 10 sties is required to reserve in the group camp....

If this is where we want to go. i will be more than glad to try to get that application for submission for June 5-6-7th...

I am just trying to see what people want... no way am i insisting on these dates or places. I realize that not all dates and times would be available to everyone....

If others have better ideas thats ok too.... ......

Well, if it's "doable", whatever dates are available will work. The proposed June dates sound fine if its open to being reserved. Build it and they will come...

Hello Christi,
Since you're near the area of the Tacoma Power crampgrounds, let's take you up on your offer to TELEPHONE them early this week and get back to us. I wouldn't drive out there when a phone call would do. Based on their Web site, it looks like a nice area, with a lake (we likes lakes!) and trees.

A GROUP SITE could be fun, as long as it has power and water hookups, so I hope you will ask about that. And if not the group site, do they have up to 20 or so regular power/water hook-up sites that are in a single loop or near one another. If they aren't booked yet, we'd be in good shape. (Last fall we had about 12 sites, didn't we Greg F?)

I'm with others who like the June 5/6/7 weekend, and we'll go just about anywhere in WA state. Our state is staggeringly beautiful wherever we go, but towing a rig, it's nice to be somewhere that's reasonably central for all.

And Greg, I'm with you... "build it," er no, "book it" and they will come, especially if YOU'RE hosting the potluck! I'll bring the Ralph Lauren sheets... for tablecloths, naturally!!!

Christi, we look forward to news from you this week. And THANKS!

Cheers all,
Sharen

I took a look at a couple of the pics of the group site, and while it would be cool, it doesn't offer much in the way of atmosphere. It seems to be a large gravel parking lot. I think I would prefer a traditional site. It looks as though most of the sites are available for June 5,6,7 with the exception of the ones that include a sewer hookup. Those are all in a row along the lake side of the loop.

Pictures can be deceiving Christi. I agree group campouts, even in gravel parking lots, can be fun... they're so totally different than camping by oneself. Maybe after this initial gathering, folks would be willing to make the next gathering in the group area I know everyone appreciate the effort you took to check it out

Check out the Valentines at DeRose group campout. It's not only in a gravel parking lot, there are no hookups at all. But those that attend have an absolutely great time.

Here's some pics from the archive, and further discussion: Valentine's at DeRose Winery, February 11-12, 2006
Looks like they had plenty of fun in a gravel parking lot to me!

I'm sorry Christi, I didn't mean to swoop in and steal your thunder. I wasn't out there, I was looking at the group camp pics that the reservation site has.
