Bunkhouse and/or Kids Rally!!!

It's the Better Late than Never Safari Bunkhouse / Airstreamin' Kids Rally!!! It's been talked about before. We're a little late on getting details pinned down, as I noticed tonight when I made reservations . The park looks like a downright awesome place to have a kids-oriented rally, and that's what drew us to it. I'll preface all the info below with this-- there's not a ton of sites available, so if you're thinking about going...do it quick!!!


Location: Fall Creek Falls State Park in Spencer, Tennessee
When: We're there June 18th - June 22nd in Area B #139
Park Website: http://tnstateparks.com/parks/about/fall-creek-falls


Our thought was that if anyone is able to make it, they could pick any days within that larger window (or the whole window!). There's a ton of activities here, although many do have costs above the campsite fee--like the Zipstream (I know, right!) zip line. Waterfall viewing and hiking appear to be outstanding!

We're going to have an absolutely great time, we'd love it if some fellow Airstreamers could make it, too! Our two kids are 9 & 10, girl & boy. Bunkhouse owners, Airstreamers with kids, Airstreamers who are kids at heart... all are welcome. Anyone with advice or input on details about anything, you're welcome to get in touch with me about it or just do what needs to be done and tell me about it. Sorry for the late planning, I hope everyone with an interest in attending can make it happen!!!

Dave & Alisa

To help you better plan your trip to Fall Creek Falls SP, I've looked up the cost of a few activities they offer:

Zipline $50/Person
Horseback Riding $25/Person
Swimming Pool $2 entry/Person

The park offers paddleboat and canoe rentals. I'll post when I find prices. Like all state parks, they offer many activities free of charge!

This is a great idea. I wish we could make it.
We have 2 boys (9 & 11), and they love camping in the Airstream!

That looks like so much fun and such a great idea! I wish we could go for those dates. Hopefully we can make the next one that gets planned.

I've got this one on the calendar, but the during-the-week schedule makes it tough for us. We've planned-up most of my vacation days this year already with vacations, so taking 2-3 days off for this one during the week will be tough. Would love to make it, though. Being in east TN, it makes the drive not too bad for us.

We will be in Kentucky at Natural Bridge State Park arriving Friday, June 16 for 2 nights. This may be a better fit (and closer) for you guys if you'd like to join us.

This place looks pretty cool. It has a ski-lift and a Saturday Night Hoe Down! Ha!

was just googling "bunkhouse" stuff on forums to see if I missed much in the past several months...I doubt I can make it this year...my whole work leave situation in the past year STINKS! Oh well, it will shift around I think for 2018.

I will keep open the possibility of making an appearance, but it is doubtful
