Alumaslider Slide Out Society Get Together 2018

Alumaslider Slide Out Society Get Together

When: September 28-30, 2018

Where: Stone Mt. S.P. 3042 Frank Pkwy, Roaring Gap, NC 28668

Stone Mt. S.P. is located just a few miles as the crow flies south of the Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP) and about 20 miles west of North Carolina I-77 exits 85 or 83. Arrive early and enjoy discovering the countryside.

Loop B has 40 sites with water and electricity and Loop C has 10 dry camping sites, scattered hydrants, picnic table and fire ring at each site. The bath house is centrally located in Loop B. Loop A is for tents and pop-ups.

Stone Mt. is in a forested hilly area a few miles south of the Blue Ridge Parkway and at the base of Stone Mt. is the Hutchinson homestead. It can be reached via a nice walk thru the forest. Stone Mt. peak can be reached from a trail and the view is pretty darn good, hills, forest and all.

The area is about 30 miles west of Mt. Airy NC, the fabled home of the Andy of Mayberry TV show and hosts a festival each September. Worth a trip to reminisce and visit the Andy Griffith museum. Our GTG is scheduled the same weekend as the Mayberry Days festival so take a trip back to rabbit ears and B&W TV time and visit. The town is pretty busy and it’s a popular festival.

This is also in the heart of the NC wine region and many vineyards are only a few miles away. Boone NC is a nice drive west off the BRP and makes a nice lunch run and shopping.

The area is a popular fall camp area for the mountains and BRP so make your reservation early or keep an eye on the reservations. Reservations open 11 months prior.

Linda and I have camped here five times and we keep going back, the sites are nice sizes, park is well maintained and the adventure or lounging is your choice. Very few sites have overhanging tree limbs, and a creek runs thru the sites. We’ve regularly seen deer in camp.

Here's a video of Stone Mt. SP and I didn't know that they have stocked the streams and trout fishing is available. Got any anglers?

Thanks for setting this up. We will try to make it.

Edit - Missed that it is next year. I was too eager to get together.

Slide out get together

Looks good but one question what happens if we get more then 40 people to show up? Also do we think we can get the rights to all 40?

This is a state park. Reservations are open to all, first registered gets sites.

Registration opens up 11 months in advance, Reserve America.

As a reminder, this get together is 2018 not 2017.

The 10 dry sites are real nice too that makes 50. Water is scattered and shared. Short walk to bath house.

This is our first get together, plans for second will be campfire fodder.

Gary
