March 2006 Forum Rally LBL Kentucky

Some of us on the Forums have decided to step out and attempt a Forum Rally. It will be held March 17-19 in the North end of the Land Between the Lakes in Western Kentucky also know as LBL. We are planning on using the Hillmans Ferry Campground which opens March 1st.

http://www.kentuckylake.com/lbl/hillmanferry.htm

No formal seminars or meetings, but campers could visit the 1850's homeplace, the Elk and Bison Prairie, Patty's 1850's Resturant as well as other sites. Mostly we are looking for folks who want to shake off the winter blues and camp.

Weather is unpredictible that time of year in Kentucky, but don't let that stop you from joining us.

Not a definite but we are sure going to try.
I have to get back to Patty's for a pork chop, that's for sure!
Love Hillman Ferry but have never camped there before. We usually use the A.C. of E. Canal Campground.
Hope to see a good turn-out.

I looked into the Canal campground, but it doesn't open until April 1st. Hillmans Ferry is just about 5 miles on down the road.

Thumbs up

I will certainly be spending some time on the elk and bison prairie getting used to my new camera and the same goes for the Old Home Place (if it is open, they have a quirky schedule). The Old Home Place for those of you who havenít made it there yet is a 1860ís homestead with log cabins, out sheds, barns and what have you. During the summer they have interpretive staff doing farm stuff and they used to actually have oxen, which even having been raised on a farm I thought were HUGE. I have some images from there in my online gallery linked below. So, if you are planning on joining us bring your cameras! And if you are going to miss us, but are still thinking about visiting LBL, those the elk and bison prairie and the Old Home Place are must sees in my opinion.

According to the web site the Homeplace is supposed to be open March through November. It does not give hours of operation however.

The weather in Kentucky is warming up. Supposed to reach the mid 60's this week! If you are itching to get out in the Airstream consider joining us at the Land Between the Lakes Forum mini-rally.

The campground is pretty huge. Do we need to make reservations this time of year or can we show up? I think we're planning on coming down on Saturday morning.
