Camp roadside= Cops with bright lights in your windows at night

Simple solution------LEGAL CAMPING

Hello Misty - check this out:
[www.anglernet.com]
It would be SOOOOO much better than camping roadside (this is NOT ROTR). I think it's very cheap - like $14:00 a campsite (up to 8 people with 2 vehicles). And as MountainGirl pointed out - the gates do close fairly early (have to call to find out when).

By the way - the south campground is actually called the Tuttletown Rec. Area and I believe the Manzanita Campground is the one we need (there are two parts - I don't think you can take the bus to the other part Sis April)

for those for an interest in history, you should look up the history of new melones dam and especially the struggle of those who attempted to prevent the flooding of the once beautiful valley now at the bottom of another lake of the privileged. i remember friends of mine chaining themselves to trees to prevent the place being flooded. didnt work of course. but i dont even go there because of that time and circumstance.

one love

Jah Bill! - you went and put the voodoo pon di campscene! Now nobody has the heart to stay near the reservoir! Stop that!

Just joking JB - I respect what your friends were fighting for, I would be mighty upset if someone started flooding the redwood grove I grew up near, but for an out of towner like myself who loves the outdoors it is the logical choice...

Perhaps using the reservoir for such an upful purpose is more true to the spirit of what your friends stood for, than if it were to not be used at all..

Just staying on the positive...Perfect Peace all!

Don't worry JB - I got the sage, and WILL reflect upon the history....

I just called (877-444-6777) and yes you can make reservations (I just did!). The gates are open until 11:00 at Manzanita Campground (Tuttletown Recreation Area). I have site #3 (wherever that may be). I think it's 8:00/person (the site says 8:00, but they charged me $16.00 for the 2 of us). She said something about group reservations being able to get the lock combination for the gate, but I plan on being settled down way before 11:00! Hope you can make it!

And the total cost of the campsites are $16 for a max of 8 people. Not $8 each person. JFYI
Re: South Melones RollCall
June 11, 2004 01:18PM
8 people and 2 vehicles per site too! (in fact I should have said 2 vehicles when I signed up - coulda shared the space! - something to think about...)

Oh - that makes more sense... I think she has a whole busload of folks, but our sites are side by side - either way, you're more than welcome. If you don't like drumming you might want to camp far away from us.. otherwise, join the gathering! ;-)
