Depending on the date I would love to do one in MN. Can also do WI as long as it is close to the MN side.

I would be good for any oct date except the first weekend. Since MN seems to be the area of choice could someone up there do the leg work on finding a place to hold this? I do have a old MN guidebook but have no knowledge of what the parks would be like. So everybody what weekends work and where are we gonna do this?

Either one sounds good to me Josh, looking forward to seeing you and winnie again. Fishing is not a priority. Thanks for checking on those. I guess we will wait for others opinions and what dates work best. Please let us know if you can make it friday and or saturday night.

Beaver Creek Valley State Park has been mentioned more than once and its location is relatively central to the northern midwest. There are three primitive group sites, two handle up to 15 people, the other can handle 60 and they appear to be currently available the last weekend of October (Oct 26-28). Cost is $50 per night (plus some small fee to the reservation service, I think.

Questions:

1) One night or two?
2) Are we willing all pitch in to share the cost?
3) Who can commit?

If we end up doing two nights I think it'd be fairest to divide up the cost of each night separately so that folks staying only one night are not paying for something they did not use.

I am interested, depending upon the date..

The camping cost is minimal, so I will pay for two nights, even if I only stay for one. Anything to make life easy for the organizer.

Mary and I should be able to make it that weekend. Since it is only about a 65 yard hike from the parking lot grilling would be in order.

Has anyone been to Beaver Creek Vally SP before I have read a little on line and talked to the ranger. Depending on turn out we might get along with the walk in sites as they are only $16 per night I doubt we will see the group sites fill this time of year so maybe wait just a bit on resevations, what do ya think??? David and Josh yeah I think grilling is in order

Camp Site Midwest GGG on 09/16/2012 08:02:59 MDT Print View

If the site will hold six four person tents it will most likely only hold six solo tents maybe we should opt for the big site just in case? Then again we could always get a few extra sites if needed so Im good on what ever. Steaks sound great.
