April 27-29, 2007

The votes are in, we’re going back to Waterlook Park in Linn County Oregon, in April!

HOWEVER, reservations for this park do not start until January 2, 2007! Plan ahead!

We've chosen the same sites along the northside in Loop A. Although just about the entire park has good/level sites. Click here to download either a GIF or PDF: Waterloo Map.

Starting January 2nd call 541-967-3917, tell them you're with the "Egg People." This park is NOT available for online reservations. It costs $11 to MAKE the reservation and that cost is not included in the daily fee. But this campout is before the busy season so the price will be $16 a night (electric/water only...a dump station is available).

Let's go have some more fun! Plot and Plan!!

May I do a "mini-hijack" of this thread to thank you, Donna, and the other folks who were so cordial to My wife Lalah and me this past weekend at your get-together? We saw a lot of rigs and had some of our preconceived ideas chaged drastically! You guys are great! And your hospitality was marvelous.

Thanks again.

Sounds good to me. You might want to visit the fish market before on your way. Have them toss the fish you can say you caught it.

As discussed, I called ReserveAmerica this morning. There are ONLY 9 spots left in B Loop in Champoeg Park, but probably enough in A loop combined with those in B loop. That's just not going to work...so that's out!

I purpose we go back to Waterloo...I think everyone enjoyed it...unless someone come up with something similar

Whatever we chose to do, we need reservations and it appears the Oregon State Park system is so overwhelmed we might be better off staying in a county park. That may allow reservations closer to the event for those just finding out about it.

Discussion? Let your thoughts known. Just remember please, we need to stay relatively close to I-5....

At the moment Waterloo looks pretty good to me.

I really liked the park where we were last weekend. I'm all for going back.

But Donna... it was voted (by everyone but you) to change the name! It is no longer called the Northern Oregon Gathering. It is now "Donna's Traveling Road Show."

Hi Donna, It appears on Reserve America that only the full service sites are open on B loop until May 1st. "A" loop is open year around and totally open. Only electric and water however on A loop. Keith

Would the B loop at Waterloo be open then? It sure looked pretty down there. (How about Silver Falls State Park?)

I looked at Silver Falls and they mostly have tent sites. Very little in A Loop with hook ups.

The major problem with State Parks is the time of year we want to hold this event. It's in what the State Park system call the Discovery Season. During that time Reserveamerica only has a few sites that are reservable. The rest are either closed off or first come first serve. FYI --at Silver Falls State Park there's over 45 sites with electricity and water. All of one loop has hook-ups.

Your right Byron, I looked at A loop and it has only 9 with electric. B Loop is almost all hook ups. If we could get B Loop we would probibly fill it.

I would love to go to Silver Falls and from what I can see, B Loop is open at that time for reservations. And its close to everything and no snow.

I certainly wouldn't have any objections to Silver Falls SP. Anne keeps saying she wants to camp there. If you like to hike and see some very pretty water falls, Silver Falls is the place.

I suspect I'll be camping there sometime before the next gathering.

Well, will anymore whining help to move this road show a bit north?

I had two Chinooks (one was 2' long) and a beautiful red Sockeye go through my front yard yesterday. We live on McAleer Creek and there have not been many for about the last ten years. My neighbor two houses upstream has been releasing a few thousand every year and apparently they are starting to come back. It was an amazing thing to view and right in our front yard!! Being a California transplant, I learned alot yesterday.

Waterloo in the Spring (April 2007) has my vote. It has a good direct access just off I-5 at Lebanon, (Exit 228, go East). It has geocashing, fishing, amily & friends, large off-leash dog area...and much much more...and for us Fall enthusist, walking through the russeling leaves.

I'm not for State Parks and I'm not for always moving. I would prefer to go to the same park at least twice a year. Waterloo had an abundance of hot water, nice showers and bathrooms, and even a bar of soap at the sinks.

Why change, when Waterloo works...and was wonderful. Chari

P.S. I hope we don't dally too long on this subject. I prefer Waterloo, am willing to make a decision, and live with it.
