Carks Fork Campground, Stanislaus NF, CA

This was our first destination in our 1964 Safari. A great spot 6200 feet in the Sierra Nevada Range surrounded by the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness. there are two loops. A loop has pit toilets and small pads. B loop has flush toilets and potable water and large pads 11x38 average. No cell service in camp. They do not take reservation and the price is $18.00 for a single, $26.00 for a double. 87 total sites, 7 are tent only. The views and the Hiking are world class. The fishing (rainbows and brookies) can be great. There are 5 or 6 other camp grounds along the Clarks Fork Road. There is a very small store and gas station just a few miles east of Clarks Fork turn off up HWY 108 is Dardanelle. They also have rv facilities, dump sta. Shower, etc. I am attemping to add a few photo's

DIRECTIONS:
From Mi-Wuk, CA take State Route 108 east 33.6 miles to a "Y"
intersection and Clarks Fork sign. Bear left after sign and go
5.8 miles to campground sign. Turn right at sign and go 0.2
miles to Loop A or 0.3 miles to Loop B. Both are on the right.

Thanks, I was on R108 yesterday. Very nice.

Very nice Safari.

How does your Ford Exploder tow the Safari?
Been looking at them for tow vehicle replacement. Nees SUV for sometime off road.

Why Batman? Good moniker. Just curious.
I catch and study bats and use a '64 Safari as mobile bat lab.

Thanks,
We love the Safari.

The Expedition is a 1998 2WD Eddie Bower with a factory tow pkg and 5.4l Triton V8 and positraction rear end. Lots of power and pulls like a dream. We have dogs (3) and the like the nice leather interior. Lots of room. Milage is about 12 mpg average pulling. A little less in our mountains.

Batman was given to me in 1977 by my next door neighbors 5 year old son. He had no other kids his age to play with and when I came home from work he would always be there wanting to play Batman and Robin. He told me I could be Batman and he would be Robin. How could I refuse the little guy. A few of my friends found out and that was that, the name stuck forever. My given name is Dennis.

A portable Bat Lab. I want one. Does that mean you are an actual professor of Chiropterology? What do think about the use of bat boxes?

Not professor, that's my brother, Dr John. I was the slacker and stopped with Master's Degree studying bats. Also do birds. Used to do Bears.Anything with 4 legs or wings.

Thanks, good info. I need a tow vehicle

Bat boxes work great, if installed properly. Leaving good natural habitat works better.

Your Safari has dual jalousie windows. Made in California?

Very cool study. I would like to talk more about that off line.

The tow vehicle is great. If I were looking now I would get a 4x4 in same model. Not to get further off road. Just to get out of some potential situations that can occur when in the field. The weather was fine when I got here, sort of thing.

Yes. She is a California girl. Born in Santa Fe Springs, CA. Here is a picture of her birth certificate. 1st sold in Santa Cruz, CA. We are the 4th owners. the first 2 owners were family from what I have found in the records. Here is a shot of the opposite side also.

She's a babe!

Wish mine was half that shiny.

Mine's an Ohio girl, single jalousies, front dinette.

Trying to find differences in CA vs OH.

Maybe meet you on the road sometime and compare.

I attempted to send you an e-mail using this site. Don't know if it will work. I am (offshorehunter2) at Yahoo. I live in Modesto,CA. Give me a shout. I plan to do a frame off floor replacement and change the axle to hydraulic/disc and new tanks, plumbing, electrical, insulation, cabinets lets see have I left anything out? Oh and any frame issues that rear there ugly heads. I plan to start in Feb or March hopefully not April.
