Area 33, 2008 Troutlake, WA

Once again the pods are returning to the coolest and most secret camping location in the Pacific NW. Hollenbeck Park located near Trout Lake WA.

This rural spot sports a group camp area with fire ring - wood included, great views, a babbling brook, 2 lovely porto-lets, 1 elect plug (for all to share) and a potable water spigot. Think boon-dockers delight. If you want to shower you can drive a couple of miles down the road to the county park or swim in the creek (cows will be watching...) Camping is in grassy (not so level) field with some sparse trees - no sand, gravel or asphalt slabs anywhere!

Reserved dates: May 23, 24, 25, 26

This place is highly casual and folks just wander in and set up camp. It would be nice to have someone get there a day early. Please let me know if you are planning on attending. Parking takes some planning and we need to know if you're coming as space is limited. Camping fees are yet to be determined but will be approximately $15 per night (cash and check only).

Area 33 - more farm-less park.
33 Mt Adams Rd.
Owners:Zoe and Gerald Wood


Directions: From Hwy 141 North bound - Mt Adams Hwy
  • Bear right at Chevron Station (road splits) in town and go about 1/4 mile across creek. fair warning - town is hard to recognize - a small market or two - that's all. This intersection is near the County campground
  • Left at 4-way intersection - look for sign to park, go about 300 yards down driveway
  • Right at sign to Hollenbeck park
  • Left at Green Gates - go down somewhat bumpy road - sometimes gravel
  • Drive down old runway 1900 ft (see hanger on left) -at the end of the runway cross irrigation ditch.
  • Camping to the left - we get the area with the fire pit and picnic table.. Please be careful about water spigots.
Just go ahead and park. One of the owners will come by on a small motorbike to collect. They do not take plastic! Checks OK.

Dumping: there is no dump station here - but the County park - seen on map quest link does have a dump station. You may dump "not too gray" water out of the way. Don’t ask - don’t tell.

This place is not in any phone book and the directions are kinda like a treasure hunt. The owners work at day jobs and do not advertise. Some portion of this land is a working farm.

here's a mapquest map

Meals: Let's keep it simple. We will bring the big stove, cooking gear and the box of paper goods - but we want to be on holiday and would like some help. Assistance with scullery work and a brave person to take on Sunday night would be lovely. If no one wants to commit to Sunday dinner, I guess it's everyone for themselves. Our cooking gear is available to use.

Please keep in mind that facilities are limited and so we need to keep clean up really simple. I'll edit this post with food additions as we go along - please check back here. Please sign up with your contributions via PM.


Friday night: falafel fixins, fresh artichokes w/ lemon butter (we will bring).

Good additions would be: a reasonable number of deserts, some munchie veggies and salad. Falafel is a veggie affair - so if you can't live w/o meat bring some (pre)grilled meat bits (sandwich size) and enough to share. You are responsible for your own drinks. Please sign up via PM and I'll edit this post with additions as we go along.

Janet - falafel fixins, pita bread feta & condiments
Gary - artichokes w/ lemon butter
L&C Woogie - large vegetable salad
Kinscher - Homemade hummas and veggies and other things to dip
64lawncondo - greek dips w/ veggies
caddygrn - dessert-like product maybe cookies
Jordandvm - dessert


----
Saturday night: BYOM BBQ & potluck Bring your own meat to BBQ and a side, salad or desert to share. You are responsible for your own drinks.

Gail - tomatoes with basil and fresh mozzerella
L&C Woogie - salad
Caddygrn - veggie kabobs
JDL - Pies
Kintcher - Dessert
64lawncondo Grilled Asparagus
James lewis - B-day cake
Grey - dessert
Janet - Brown and wild rice
Jordandvm - salad and honey whole wheat or Dahota bread


----
Sunday B-fast: We'll bring eggs, fresh corn tortillas and ham for all.
Good additions: Juice, coffee, grated cheddar, picante bits for eggs, salsa, hot baked cinnamon rolls, fruit. Please sign up via PM.

woops, sorry i was confused...

ignore my earlier post.

this is that place with the really bad flesheating fleas and skin parasites and sink holes, right?

i just checked and not only are the bugs back, but the area has been declared a superfund toxic clean up site.

so along with the bugs and toxins and sinkholes, 300+ others will be there...

the n.a.w.d.a.o.f.s.d.** is having they annual convention there that week.

pass this on, don't let others be miserable too!

cheers

Just checked with our friends at Trout Lake. Bigfoot has been seen wandering around and carrying off small mammels. They're concerned that He's early this year and may portend a serious problem this spring. Also seeing fast moving lights, in formation, over the mountain. hmmmmmmmm

Hello out down there,

Save a landing spot for us, also have a homing beacon at the end of
the runway. What's the frequency? We're bringing our UAL.

Bob & Susan

P.S. Great logo, our compliments to the designer.
Any body drink wine?
