Cloudland Canyon Rally, September 2011

Extended weather forecast shows daytime temps in the mid 80's, dropping down to the mid 60's at night. Not too bad overall.

Wow, just 9 days to go before I will be in my Airstream at Cloudland Canyon.
At some point I may need to get serious about getting ready! Looking forward to getting out there and exploring a new area close to home.

Cloudland Canyon

I was wondering what the check-in and check out times were, and thought others might be wondering too. I copied this from the Georgia State Parks information: Check-in is between 1 p.m. and 10 p.m. and check-out is before 1 p.m. Campers must register and present a reservation confirmation before setting up. Both the reservation and deposit fee are forfeited if the camper does not check in by 10 p.m. on the scheduled arrival date. Most park gates are locked at 10 p.m.

Thanks for posting this information. I will be there early on Thursday in case the site is open and they allow me to set up prior to 1300. Also, if I have a reservation #'s and name I can reserve or hold additional sites when I check in. Some folks have given me their numbers so just a reminder for everyone if you want me to hold a site for you give me your reservation # plus name and I will attempt to do that.

I'm not able to camp this weekend due to having to work, but I will try to come by. Cloudland Canyon is a great park.

I show 7 plus one maybe. A respectable turnout overall. We won't really know for sure until everyone checks in and sets up.

Im starting the process of gathering gear and such for the rally.

Will make a try for the West Rim Campground. You never know what you will encounter until you show up.

See everyone there

Thanks to all who traveled from Tennessee and Georgia to participate in the rally. It was our the first time visiting Cloudland Canyon and we were impressed with the campground and the fantastic views. There are several very good day hikes in the park affording the best views into the Canyon. I have this on our list to visit again in the future. Our trip back was like everyone else's, very wet and rainy with severe monsoon hurricane driven rains but we eventually made it.

John,

how many units showed up? If you want, you might think about putting together a quick little word doc with pics and highlights from this event to add to the newsletter, especially if you're gonna do it again next year -- plus this helps your cause for Stone Mountain Park!

Good point, Shawn. I'm collecting submissions right now for the next TAC newsletter which I hope to put together at the end of this month. John, if you'd like to put something together, just PM me and I will give you my direct email address to send pics / text to.

Seven units showed up in total. Actually except for the last day before labor day the weather was sunny and dry so we had good conditions overall. I will try and write something up here soon.

We enjoyed the trip and may plan on a return next year--we shall see. I would definitely go back at a later time. Three more trips this year before I winterize, a service trip to Jackson Center, the Tybee Island Pirate Fest in October, and a late fall trip to Unicoi State Park (w/hookups!) in November.

We got some great pics of the canyon and both falls were flowing! I'll pose some pics soon. Weather was awesome.

We will be at Tybee for the Priates Festival too, although not with the Airstream. We will be in a condo down by the pier. The campground just wasn't close enough to the action! LOL Went to the Priate Festival several years ago and had a blast!
