Post May Long weekend ?
Is there an interest in going to the group site at Paul Lake again this year?
If so we need to book soon for a chance to get it. It’s a grassy site suitable for any type of camp unit you have, from tent to A class RV.
I believe it was around 15 bucks a vehicle base on 15 vehicles showing up at camp
There will be a “short” discussion at the mtg

It was a great spot to camp last year. I am in favour of returning.

I would like to go too but my cousin decided to destroy everybody's long weekend by putting his wedding smack in the middle of it.

I could show up Sunday though.

So apparently we were too late. I tried to book Paul Lake for the May long weekend only to find that it has already been booked.

EC/BOD - it looks like we need to think of a new spot to camp for May long.

What does this leave us with options?

Try to book individual sites at a provincial park?
Look at one of the Old Hedley road sites?
Figure out another larger camping area for us? May require a scouting weekend.

How large a spot do we need? How many people/vehicles/tents/trailers do we need to find space for?

What about this camp site:

http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explor ... y_alleyne/

I don't know anything about it, but it may be a possible spot to go to.

Just a thot, if we don't mind going to a forestry site, we could go back to Resovoir Lk, it's a large site, we went there years ago and had a fun time. We could also take that opportunity to lay some flower wreaths and pay our respects at Grant's memorial.

Unfortunately this and just about all other provincial group sites are booked for the weekend

I stayed at Pickard Creek last year. It is a nice spot, but only has 16 sites.

Unfortunately now, people want it to be travel trailer friendly and this is not.

LOL. Yah, your right, I forgot about the vehicle bath.

The road over the culvert to Nickel Plate was repaired last year, but the outhouses were not. The road itself is still a bit rough for trailers, just like last time we went.

Sadly, due to altitude, the area usually has snow well into June

I made it to Reservoir with a trailer, what?
Gord, your trailer would go. Only one that may have issue would be Gilles, but he could shrink wrap it before the crossing. :dance:
