Texas Piney Woods Rally

Ok here goes a shot in the dark;

Ok Ive seen several of you say it here lately and most of us know it, camping in Texas in the month of November is always a great time of year to go camping. Its usually not to cold and the heat of Texas is finally GONE!
Mrs.S and I have been on a few trips this year after finishing our camper and we cannot ever seem to get our schedule right to meet some fellow ASers.

So I thought Id throw this out there and see what happens, I cant call it a rally because Ive never been to one. So for now Im calling it a meet.

November 11th-13th with the 11th being Veterans Day.
I thought this might be a great weekend to get some folks together and get them AS's out and have a good time. For most people this should be a 3 day weekend.

Now we just need a place to meet, Im open to anywhere. The only idea I have is Mill Creek Park on Lake Same Rayburn located in the Piney Woods of East Texas. I checked the campground and it is EMPTY for that weekend. If anyone is intrested I know a great loop in the park that is on the water side and the sites are pretty spacious. Its a great park with great people running it.
But Im open to anywhere.

So with that thrown out there lets see if anyone agrees, we need a Texas camping trip in November.

Anybody?

You also have TAHI (Texas Airstream Habor Inc.) on Lake Sam Rayburn pretty close to Zavalla. They will rent you full hookup sites at reasonable rates.

I was there last weekend. The lake is quite low. Had some great catfish at Broaddus.

Looks like a great park, Ive never been there personally but Im always up for a new adventure. I grew up on the South end of Rayburn.
Yes the lake is lower than Ive ever seen it, but its still a great lake.
Glad you done good on the catfish. Ive always done well there myself, Im more into the large mouth bass.

Anymore ideas or intrest anyone?

Thumbs up On the calendar!

Mr. S,
It's on the calendar and we'll be there! There probably isn't a better month to camp in Texas than November. Us government workers get a long four day weekend for Veteran's day. That will be awesome. I'm for Mill Creek Park on the lake.

Thanks for being the first to jump in and add the date to your calender.

I'll try and get some info up on the campground and the best campsites soon.

Why is it that EVERY rally I want to visit happens the week BEFORE I return to the Republic?

There's always next October I suppose.

Sorry Soldiermedic, I know how that feels. We have watched the forums for months trying to catch a rally or meet up and I always miss them by just a few days either leaving to go to work or just before I come home.

Texas Piney Woods Rally

Ok everyone, its decided that its going to be the Texas Piney Woods Rally located on Lake Sam Rayburn in Brookeland, Texas.

Campground descripiton

Mill Creek Park is a highly developed camping area located on the southeast shore of Sam Rayburn Reservoir. Sam Rayburn Reservoir is located in the Piney Woods of Southeast Texas, approximately 18 miles north of Jasper, Texas. The park features 110 campsites (105 w/30 amp electric and water connections and 5 w/50 amp electric and water connections). Additional amenities include a group shelter, designated swimming beach, a playground, volleyball court, horseshoe pits, public phones, boat launch, hot showers, and 2 dump stations.

Reservations can be made at www.recreation.gov
When making reservations be sure to select Texas, and on the park or facility section type in Mill Creek and a drop down box will list the full name of the park. The loop is Loop C
The offical rally dates are November 11-13th.
You can come early or leave later or when ever you please.
I highlighted the Loop C spots on this map so everyone can see the sites.
If you click on site 74 you shoud see a note labeled Mr. & Mrs. S.
Ill update it as reservations are made.

I myself have made reservations for site number 74 and I will be staying in the park from November 9th -14th. If you have any questions or if you think you might need help setting up on your arrival let me know, Ill be glad to help out in any way.

I hope to see a great turn out.

Not sure that we can make this one, Dennis has gotten busy with contract work during that time. If anything changes I will let you know.

I was totally unaware of the of Texas Gulf Coast Unit rally. I looked on the forum calender and there was nothing showing for that weekend. Nor have I been able to find any information on it. I can assure you Im not trying to cause conflict with your rally. I Hope you accept my apology.
Im easy to work with, if Airstreamers would like to move to your location then that is fine with me. There will be no hard feelings if the people that have taken intrest in the Texas Piney Woods Rally wish to move to the Texas Airstream Harbor.

For now I entend to leave the Texas Piney Woods Rally as scheduled, if anyone wishs to cancel on it and move to the Texas Airstream Harbor for that rally just please let me know and we can move also. If there are available spots.

Again sorry for the conflict.

Its up to the community, any respones are welcome.
For us it all about Airsteaming.
Im sure if people want to continue with the Texas Piney Woods rally then it will be a smaller rally, but that is fine with us.

You have booked a really great spot, we stayed there back in July for 11 days.
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f42/...les-78147.html

If you take a look at our travel thread you can see a picture of the site on post #10. Its prolly the largest spot in the Loop.
