    For all the new members and returning, the house directly across from Emily Parks entrance is still selling firewood for $10 a bundle. Just an FYI.

    I notice a house on the east side of the road between the park and 7.... Had some dryer wood (by viewing). Same $10.. But a larger amount... ;). Just keeping an eye out for all our extended camping families;)

    Stevie was the one doing the breaking. I'm sure he will be just fine. There is talk about him coming along on Sat in his own car, and heading back on Sun. He has to work on Mon. We are staying until Mon.

    Still a slight chance of rain on Friday. But rest of weekend and Thursday look great. We did get some rain last night but not enough to make any of the sites muddy. It's been very dry here and no major rain is in the forecast.

    Reminder to those arriving on Thursday. I will be hosting a gathering on Thursday night on my site #188. Hopefully, there will not be a ban, and we will be able to have a campfire! [CF]

    This will be my first Ontario rally, and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone! :)

    With the weekend getting closer, I just wanted to remind everyone to please wrap their door prize donation. Wrapping job nor the paper have to be anything great, brown paper or news paper will do.

    This completely slipped my mind until now ..

    Ontario Family Fishing Event is a province-wide opportunity for Canadian residents to fish
    Ontario waters without the otherwise mandatory fishing version outdoors card.
    July 2-10, 2016 (12:01 a.m. Saturday to 11:59 p.m. Sunday).
    Participants fishing without a license must fish under the Conservation fishing license limits.

    http://files.ontario.ca/environment-and-energy/fishing/2016/2016_Fishing_FMZ_17_English.pdf

    Fishing equipment can be borrowed from the Park store..

    Just checked the fire ban alert site.....out of every single provincial park in the province, there are only 2 parks with full fire bans and Turkey Point has a partial...that's it!! Shocking.

    The day use beach (not the camping site beach) has a posting stating that there is higher contents of E Coli at tht beach. However, it has not been closed...
