For those not familiar with the area, it is off Hwy 12, east of the town of Morton, south of Mt. Rainier, and at the eastern end of Riffe Lake, (which is a large Tacoma Power Co. reservoir.)

Everyone who attended last year liked it there, and this year they will also have a lot more room since they just recently opened up a whole new section of campsites. All brand new facilities, bathrooms, showers, full hook-ups, etc. Many of us "walked" through the area when we were there last year to check it out...really first class!

Start booking reservations!

I've reserved site # 210, Friday, June 4th - Monday, June 7th, 2010.

Greg

Reservations are open for a June 4, 2010 arrival at Taidnapum.
We reserved 217 for Friday - Sunday.

Note: It looks like about 1/2 of the sites in the new loop are listed as 'Maximum Equipment = Van/Camper'. They're probably big enough for an Egg, but they might not want to reserve them for you

Mike & Sandy will be in site 223 with "Benedict" - arrive Thurs. the 3rd leave Monday the 7th.

The site description says it has more than average foot traffic, presumably due to site proximity to the restroom/showers.

We wil be setting up a toll booth....be sure to bring lots of quarters! ;-)

Mike

PS: Note to Willar - I requested the site for a "less than 18 foot trailer", and the reservation was confirmed for this "Max. 18-34 foot" RV site, so there should be no worry about getting the big sites for our "small footprint" trailers.

Also, the reservation form asks for discount status, and the senior discount is shown as "Tacoma Senior". However, I think that only means the senior discount for this park is whatever Tacoma Public Utilties decide to grant for their parks....you don't have to be a Tacoma resident or a TPU employee.

TAIDNAPAM MAP & RESERVATIONS LINK:
https://secure.camis.com/WA/Taidnapam-Tacom...107&200-288

SHAREN & SIMON, along with Keeper & True, have reserved site #226 at Taidnapam for Thurs-Sunday, 3 nights, June 3, 4, and 5, departing on June 6. Thanks Greg for getting this ball rolling. While we loved the OTHER section of Taidnapam, it'll be fun to give this NEWER section a try as well. It's a GREAT PARK. Bring your fishin' poles!

It's a bit difficult finding the link at the WA State Parks site, so I posted the direct link to the Taidnapam map above.

Those of you who qualify (+62 y/o) be sure to check your senior status for a good discount. Mine represented about $15 discount on a 3-night stay.

So, see y'all at NOG next month, then we'll mothball the cramper for the winter. Come April 2010 we'll be at SilverFalls, then Taidnapam... all my life's a circle...

This weekend we're headed down to Grayland State Park for Thurs-Sunday, the ANNUAL Grayland to Tokeland GArage Sale weekend.

Till we meet again, happy cramping!
~ Sharen

Maureen, Magan and I will be in site 274. We chose this site as it is next to the large field for the potluck events. I remember looking at the sites last year. I would not believe them when they say they are large enough for a truck camper. 54 feet long will fit all from our group.

We liked our campsite so well last year, we decided to stay in the other loop. Bob and I will be in 50, and Char, Dennis and Luna will be in 52. We'll be sure to bring the bikes, so we can visit you all over in the other loop!

Glad to see you guys are making the trek up to our neck of the woods again. Looking forward to seeing the four of you, and Luna too!
