Hi Mike,
We stayed in the park......we're less than 20 miles away from the park, so it was a good choice for a last-minute shakedown location.

The park is nice - a few lakes for fishing, a swimming beach, great hiking and moutain bike trails and a new disc golf course too.

Did you reserve a specific site for your trip?

Renee

Hi Mike, we did stay inside the park, we live only 23 miles away. All of the sites have electric, currently the water is off at the sanitation station, due to a plumbing problem, but you can still dump. To get water there are three spigots available inside the campground area that you can use right now to fill your fresh water tank. Hopefully by the time you arrive the plumbing problem will be fixed. As far as the sites they are all different, some have a paved drive some do not, some are pretty small and will not allow you to put out an awning if you have one, a few look to share power. We walked the whole campground Sunday morning and found we like sites 100, 94, 141 & 135 and I know there were a couple others but can not remember the numbers right now, I think they were in the 40's. We stayed on site 57 which was pretty big but kind of low. The park was just under half full when we were there which made it very quiet, we slept in till 10am each morning. If you mountain bike Fort Custer is the top spot in Michigan to go, very easy to put on 13 miles. There are also a couple of lakes for fishing, swimming, boating and a disc golf course.

Later - Derek

Wow a 2fer,
Hello Renee & Derek,
I have reserved 133 & have friends on 131 & 132. I have don a lot of mountain biking in the past but the Trek 800 now sports the regular pedals, Hybred tires, and a baby seat! We had to jump to Fort Custer for that weekend because we were late at getting the reservations in for Gun lake! (which is where the flood picture was taken last time we were out ) Feel free to join in on the custer trip or I can send you some other dates we have almost every other weekend planned. With most of them in michigan this year. Would love to meet up with you.

MIKE

Apparently Renee and I spend way too much together, seeing as our posts had much the same information in them. As of now we have a lot of dates open for camping, we could easily do a another trip to Fort Custer as were pretty close. I know we might be camping June 4th - 7th (Road America), maybe July 4th weekend (Traverse City), July 17th - 19 (Road America) Metro-Detroit Rally and if the bathroom project gets finished in time, May 16th - 17th (Northern Michigan ??)

I already have time off planned for Aug 7 weekend, but I can either change it or use an alternative form of leave, I guess July 31 is ok

Well it apppears as though my peeps have spoken! According to my tally it is unanimous for the early weekend (July 31st, August 1st and 2nd). I will call CG and make the reservation. I will also post the rally on calendar and get us a banner on the main page.

So, Congratulations it is now official!! It is also quite historic that we have a location and a date this early for the

Metr-Detroit Rally. 2009

Rally schedule to come.
