THURSDAY, SEPT. 23 - MON. SEPT. 27
I have checked out several other campgrounds and cannot find one laid out as well as Caesar Creek, so decided to have it there again. Barb Claude was so sweet as to go check out the restrooms there & discovered a MUCH nicer shower house in the A loop. We could go up there to shower if you want. That loop is not reservable, unfortunately. We are in the same pet loop as we have been each year. I will be booking the same site (#149) as I always have, so it will be easy to find me.
We are planning a homemade ice cream get-together for Friday evening late. Terry is so generous she is bringing the ice cream mix for all. If anyone WANTS to bring cookies, brownies, or one topping for the ice cream, feel free to do so. Saturday morning will be our wonderful breakfast get-together where each family brings a dish to share. Saturday evening will be our group dinner at Der Dutchman in Waynesville.
Terry Riley had a GREAT idea, which we could certainly incorporate into our Friday evening. If anyone has a dutch oven and/or good dutch oven recipes, it would be fun to do a group campout with dutch oven (or other) cooking to share!
Also, if anyone has a corn hole or other games, feel free to bring it along. Last year it poured down rain (first time for our rallies!) If anyone has an enclosed shelter they want to bring, just in case, that would be great.
If you have any changes in email addresses, phone numbers, address, etc. please email me at sew4388[at]woh.rr.com & give them to me. This list will only be passed out at the rally
for security purposes, & not posted. If you do NOT wish to share your personal info, please let me know.
Caesar Creek State Park Campgrounds is near the junction of I-71 and I-73 near Wilmington, OH. If you are heading south, get off I-71 [at] exit 45 (OH route 73 toward Waynesville) & turn left. Go across the "bridge" over I-71 & almost as soon as you get over the "bridge", turn left on OH route 380 (service station on the corner). Go about 3 miles & turn left onto Center Rd. which dead ends into the state park in about 1.5 miles. down.
If you are coming south on I-75, take exit 38 (FRANKLIN/SPRINGBORO exit) & go through Waynesville staying on OH route 73 and go about 19.5 miles until you go over the "bridge" across I-71 & turn left very quickly after the bridge (service station on the corner where you turn) onto OH route 380. Go about 3 miles & turn left onto Center Rd. which dead ends into the park.

The campgrounds is about 15 miles east of Waynesville, a charming town full of antique shops & a great Amish restaurant, Der Dutchman, where I would love to set up a group meal on Sat. evening if anyone is interested. They have a nice buffet, usually with beef, GREAT fried chicken, & ham, plus mashed potatoes, veggies, homemade noodles, salad bar, etc. for about $13each (INC. TAX, does NOT include drink or dessert) or you can order from the menu. There is a wonderful gift shop next door to the restaurant.
At the campground, there is a private swimming beach, fishing, boating (launch at the campground dock), showers (nothing to brag about!!) & full hookups available. There are 2 pet loops, which we always stay in so that all our friends may bring their babies!
Between the campground and Waynesville, there is a Pioneer Village, Renaissance Festival (discount tickets available online), BIG flea market (only about 5miles from the flea market & open Sat. & Sun. 9-5).
Here are some links you may find helpful with directions & info on some of these things:
