    Hello all,
    We are new to the forum as well as kinda new to pop up camping. We purchased a new pop up mid 2015 and have taken it out a few times. We are looking for friends to go camping with over the weekends. We have 2 girls ages 10 and 3. We occasionally bring our dogs also. We have been to Prescott Area as well as Woods Canyon Lake and enjoyed both places.

    Thanks for taking the time to read. [​IMG]

    Hi, and welcome to the Portal!

    Have you considered attending a Rally? They're a great place to meet other Portal members, talk camping, make friends and plans, and just generally enjoy the camaraderie of being a P'up owner.

    We have the Arizona Spring Rally coming up the first weekend in April, at Lost Dutchman State Park in Apache Junction. This is a nice park, and it's shaping up to be a pretty decent rally.

    A bit later, the Quad State 2016 Rally will take place June 17-19 at Jacob Lake Campground, where the road to the North Rim splits from the 89A. We held a fall rally at Jacob Lake a couple of years ago, and everyone had a great time. Jacob Lake is a beautiful area, up around 7000' of altitude, and a nice day trip distance from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

    Hope to see you soon!

    Good for you! Get those kids out in the fresh air, hiking, catching bugs, collecting etc. Pop up campers are great for young families. The state of AZ has a lot of diverse terrain and with year round camping why, it's hard to beat it here. Attend a rally if you think that would be your thing, we tried it once. Enjoy!!

    Welcome to PopUpPortal and in addition to the rallies, other campers are identifying other great places to camp.


    As Hoomi mentioned:

    we have met up w other portal members in rather remote areas and some of us were less than prepared (won't mention any name AND won't exclude myself) and as a group we have all the necessary items needed.

    The girls will have wonderful memories from camping as a family!

    Thanks for asking. No, we won't be attending. We have issues going on in life right now that make planning ahead really tough. Looks like a great place and time for a rally though!
