    Chris,

    I think you missed on both counts. Ouch.

    They drank it all Friday night. Not a drop left.
    Then Liz told me the never heard the group setup near them Friday night.
    Hmm, I wonder why??

    I will admit to having camping envy tonight. It's a beautiful clear evening with a fantastic sky. Enjoy it.

    Yes, we felt horrible about it Lou! Had you come by Sunday you would have been in luck! We went and got 5L of wine, and all the mixins for Sangria. I didn't even use it all, there was so much! Sorry about running out Fri night, it went down very fast! <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Big Smile"> I'll be posting some pics from our trip in the "Let me tell you about my trip" forum shortly. It went so well, when Liz went home last night, for work today, I extended my stay into Monday and my little brother joined me! <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Big Smile"> Stand by folks, this one's a GO!

    Also I wanted to UPDATE everyone on the 48&49 management sites. I talked with the ranger this weekend, who was the nicest I have ever spoken with, and so accomodating when I was having my mother come up for Mother's day, with some of my siblings, in granting them a day pass, and over the 4 allowed for our site.

    Sites 48 & 49 are management sites, in that management moves people to them if they don't like their neighbors, or have complained of the site they are on. They are not occupied by a host, nor a manager, and she said that they are <i>rarely</i> used! She said we won't have ANY problems up there! <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Big Smile">

    We are new kids here and just saw this post. I wish we could make the rally you have planned but we'll be in Maine during that weekend. We did book a site (#26) at this CG for the weekend of July 11-13. It's good to read all the positive reviews.

    Thanks!

    weecamp, sorry you can't make it! Did you look at the pics I have of WSP? Here is Site 26, a pretty deep site, and one of my favorites in that loop! We'll be up there some more this summer, it'd be great to meet another PUP member there as well!

    Hey, you'll like site #30! Its one of my favorites on the back loop! Did you see the 4 pics of it that I have in my photobucket? If not, here they are!

    I've never stayed in that site, but I like it a lot, the rock formation behind it is pretty darn cool, and there are a few options of where to put the camper from what I recall! Have a great weekend, I wish you could make the Rally there in August. So far, Wells is our favorite place to camp, and the best part is its only 35-40 mins from home! <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Big Smile"> Be sure to take pics!

    I know this is an old thread but we are kicking around staying at this cg. Would anyone be able to recommend a few really secluded sites? Lots of woods? I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

    KMH, enjoyed the photos! I'm thinking that is a gorgeous spot to camp but there's no way anyone should arrive after dark and try to back in! [:D]

    that whole side #52 - 41 -37 etc. are both spacious and wooded, any along there would do. Great park!

    just bring LOTS of deep woods OFF, and any other kind of mosquito repellant you can find. I stayed there and came back with 53 (my wife counted them) mosquito bites... they are voracious
