Just wondering if my plans are ok...planning on arriving in Oak Creek that Saturday by noonish. Leaving Monday. I don't think I could get there any earlier since it's a 12.5 hour drive and I won't be leaving till Friday afternoon.

In years past, we had folks arriving all day Friday and into Saturday... so you'll be just fine.

We typically leave from here (Chicago area) on Thursday after work, and roll into the Windrock area around 4am Friday morning. We grab a few hours of sleep, then up & ready to go. The campground is awesome about late arrivals, so long as you settle up with them in the morning.

I'm probably going to roll in Friday noon-ish unless I can change my schedule on Thursday of that week. Shoot, just a couple of days of wheeling with this group will be great - if I can get a full day Friday then that's a sweet bonus :wink:

Good to hear Colin, I will be up mid day Thursday, I will be in a cabin this year again.

Need to call and make reservations.

Anyone else looking for a cabin?? I will see about making reservations.

Will, I would like a cabin.

Is there a section blocked off for us, like last years event?

There is not yet - I have been waiting for people to chime in with who is staying where so I have something somewhat solid that I can give to the campground. I will call them early next week and see what they can do for us. I'll report back what I find.

Jayme, FWIW I'm probably going to be camping in a tent (or sleeping in the KJ if it gets too chilly - I'm a wimp :lol: ) if that helps your planning any.

We'll probably opt for the tent/KJ route also... unless we end up sharing a cabin like we did last year.

I'm not sure if we have anyone renting a cabin yet. If we do, that would be a good place to congregate each day... otherwise, if memory serves me correctly, the primitive camping (tent) sites are all pretty much together and across the road from the cabins.

Campground map looks like this:

I'm camping (...sleeping in the KJ)
Are there shower restroom facilities near the primitive sites?

I will be getting a cabin and I think Colin +1 will be in there also, we can do the congregating there, also think Tony P wanted a cabin.

Sounds good. Maybe we'll camp outside your house. ;) :mrgreen:

I hope to call the campground tomorrow - work schedule got stupid today, so better luck tomorrow. :5SHOTS:

First "official" meeting time is 12 noon on Friday (10/11) at the trailhead (former location of the SnackShack which I understand may not be there anymore). Park passes and trail maps are available at the offices of the Windrock Campground (see map above) and other locations:

http://windrockpark.com/what-you-need/permits-passes-tickets/

Please arrange to have your passes before meeting so that other folks don't have to wait on you.

Do you know your tent site? I'll be arriving a little after you (likely in an Enterprise rental car of some kind...)
