    Jody and I will be there as well. I think the Canvasback Cove is a good loop for our group. The only draw back is the launching ramp is near us so there will be traffic between our loop and the playground. The playground is not within eye site of most of our campsites so I don't think it will bother us to much. Most of the outer loop sites have trees on them. The handicap site is 116 but I don't think it has shade.

    We all must wait until 180 days before our date to reserve a site. Check my math but I think that is November 19, 2016 (Mark your calendar) unless you are going a bit earlier. Wade we all need to confirm the loop before Nov 19th.

    CamperMike, you know Shabbona very well, what are your thoughts?

    Steve and Jody

    Steve,
    I did spend a lot of time at the park when younger but that was usually to fish. Only started camping there recently. I think the canvasback would be a good place, but there is legitimate concern over how quickly it may fill up.

    Wow, I haven't been on this site for awhile. Just made our reservations for the Spring Rally Wednesday, May 17-21. We're site #125. May 20 is my youngest daughter's 30th birthday. I'm hoping there's no conflicts. (Looks like several of the sites have moderate and even severe grades)

    Peggy, we decided to camp instead. It was a difficult decision but, the best decision for me. I will explain at the rally.

    OK, camping family we are reserved for 5 nights at Shabbona Lake SP starting Thursday afternoon and leaving Tuesday noon. We are in site #131. Don't forget and make those reservations for the spring rally. We want to see all of you there. I'll bring the corn hole game if anyone wants to play. really looking forward to it. we will bring one of our awnings and 2 or 3 of our tables. I'm thinking I might make more scalloped potatoes like I did for the fall rally. We had none to take back with us. I might even squeeze in some corn bread on the side. Here is hoping you all can make it. Doug & Susan.
