Just made the reservation this morning. This will be our fist Airstream group get-to-gether. I have lived in Fresno for almost 30 years and have never been to Three Rivers.

Nice to have another trip on the calendar.

Doug,
So glad to hear you'll be joining us! We had never been to Three Rivers either until we got our AS. It's about as easy of a drive as you could ask for. About 90 minutes from Fresno.
The area is beautiful in November when all the colors are changing and the river is low. We haven't yet been there in March but the staff says it green and flowers will be blooming at that time.

Rick,
Wonderful! That makes 7! We are very much looking forward to meeting you!

To all:
Please post which site number you are in.

Also, I didn't write it in the opening description but we will have a traditional Saturday night potluck. This will be the first weekend after the daylight savings time change so we will have an extra hour of daylight for dinner.
I like to keep things casual. We can do wine and appitizers on Friday night. I didn't feel like it was necessary to plan it since none of us really need any encouragement to stand around the fire and eat, drink and be social.

Wife says, "Let's go". Since it's been many moons since we've been to Sequoia we will plan on a couple of extra days. I will contact the RV park and see what's available in full hook ups.

Hi Neil,
Great! You'll make number 8. The 10 sites we blocked off are all full hook-up sites. As long as site are available we can book more as needed.
Sequoia RV Ranch also has partial hook-up sites. They have a mobile 'honey wagon' and there is a dump station that is no more that 100 yards from any site.

We are trying to work a way to attend your rally and do some sight seeing in Sequoia Nat Park. Maybe like 3 nights with you then some camping in the National Park. It's been a while since Lynn and I were there....before kids....our oldest just turned 42 and we tent camped back then. So any suggestions to camping in The Park....trailer friendly roads etc?

Neil

Neil, so glad you and Lynne will be joining us!

I would not plan on taking the trailer into the park, at least from this side. There is a very short length restriction, I think our F-250 barely qualified. It's really geared towards tenters. If you leave your trailer at the campground you can drive up from there, it's about 7 miles to the entrance. There is a $20 fee to enter the park, but I believe that is for a 7 day pass. Unless you have a senior's pass, the it's free! From there it is quite a drive up a twisty turny mountain road to get up to where the trees are.

We drove up and spent the day hiking and exploring last time we stayed in Three Rivers. It was Valentines Day weekend, the weather was lovely at the campground, but up at the trees there was about 3 feet of snow! It was beautiful

Thanks, Lianne. I did some online research and discovered the same. As I mentioned we visited there and Kings Canyon more than 40 years ago. Since we were pup tent camping I do not recall or paid attention to how it would be to tow a trailer to there. Back then 'It was the journey that was magical'.....now as I am not into a lot of driving, 'It's the destination that needs to be magical'. We have not yet decided yet....we kinda want to....2014 spring is going to be busy for us.

See you at JRRV.
Neil

P.S. National Park entry fee is FREE for us 'seasoned' travelers.

Gosh, how did all the big Class A busses get in there to camp at Dorst CG? Is the road from Three Rivers CG different from the main road into the park? We really wanted to camp there this fall and hike into Mier Grove and all the other great hikes in the park.
