It's been a few years since I've been there, to the best of my memory there are no hook-ups other than water. The water is spigots that you can't hook up to, just for incidental use IIRC.
It is a great area, with a warm shallow lake that is great for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, etc. At the upper end of the lake is a great channel where the incoming stream enters the lake. (Pictured in Neil's photos above) This is a nice area to paddle.

Back to the rally thread...

Boy, Dave you sure haven't been there in a lo-o-o-ong time. 2 ways into Wright's and both paved. A few miles east of Kyburz on 50 is a marked paved road. However, trailers are not recommended as it is steep with hairpin curves for the first few miles. The popular way in is take the Crystal Basin road that is just a few miles east of Fresh Pond on 50 (just east of Pollack Pines). I would get your gas and any supplies there as the one other resource charges what the can and will if you are desperate. Anyway take the Crystal Basin road (nice paved road but steep) to the Ice House/Wrights Lake turn (right turn). This intersection is a mile ot 2 past the Ice House store and resort (this store and gas is pricey only because they are the only one). Travel east after the right turn for I can't recall how far...maybe 10 miles because this is an old logging road but nicely paved. In some places it is narrow and windding. Watch for the signs as they are forest service brown wood ones. The campground has paved roads and pads. Plenty of water and recent new nicely done pit toilets. The campsites are roomy.....very nice. A 25' trailer and TV will fit it most sites. Check ReserveAmerica for the campground map. NOW back to the Rally thread.

Camping School Dropout...

Well, the new job and several family obligations got to us, and we're out of the LSA Rally.. Sigh... I hope "un-retiring" doesn't have more negative consequences, or I might have to re-think the whole idea...

For the dinner Saturday, this means the opportunity to bring a green salad for 120 people is now available... Dianne is willing to share "Secrets" if anyone would like to get the magic recipe...

For those looking to host Tarantula races, there is also a vacancy...

For Ingrid and Jeff, we won't be bringing and setting up our tent, with the light on...

Sorry to all we'll miss seeing, and looking forward to more Calif Forum Rallies after this one.. We are going to Albuquerque, after negotiating permission to take vacation during week # 2 on new job....

Cool! We need a smoking section during the movie. I hear cigar smoke helps keep the tarantulas at bay...at least that's what we can tell those who complain about it!

real bummer news. it's a sad day when a founding member of the norcal troupe can't make the rally. you and dianne will be missed. and don't even think of missing the spring rally. your attendance will be mandatory. period.

John, sorry you had to work, that makes two of us.

Ingrid and Jeff: I live nearby to Paso Robles and have a large tent with a center divider, kinda makes 2 rooms. PM me if it is needed. I have to work during the rally but I could probably get the tent up there.
Dave

Hello to all, its been awhile however we've had the stream at C&G the month of August having upgrades done then we took a trip starting a Flying Flags then Pismo Coast Village, then we had two days before Sea Cliff, hello Big Dee. Well after missing the rally at Lake San Antionio last time we decided to check it out, its now being built into our Thanksgiving trip to Sea Cliff. One night while watching the sunset and in the cove below there was a boil of strippers that I've never seen before there must have been 30 or more feeding on bait.
Taking the stream back to C&G for more work,so being at the rally will be a mental one at this time.

tent

If we do come, and we'll still try, we'll grab a motel room overnight down there. We would most likely be with 3 kids and it's just not worth the hassle to put up a tent to sleep in for one night when we can just motor on down there from somewhere close (or not so close, I remember not finding anything in King City last time).

Thanks all tent offerers! It's good to be loved!

I did get my ticket...we'd leave Saturday and come on down to say hi. We might even throw a mattress in the truck bed and just lie there and look at the stars at night. I've always wanted to do that!

Anyone going to the Renaissance Faire the weekend of October 7th-8th in Casa De Fruta? We'll be hanging around there that weekend.
