Has anyone camped this year?

Postby John1961 » Sat Apr 18, 2009 12:59 am

I'm opening the camper today. Let it air out, install the battery, plug it in make sure everything works.. We have reservations the second weekend in May. Its the wife's birthday. Both son's and there family's going as well. I love to wake up ( at 5 am before fishing )  and say" I don't know if Grand Paw can cook breakfast on the camp fire by my self". The grand buddies come running. LOL  Any other campers out there?

We go camping, but our first time this year won`t be till June 14. We`ll be camping at Michigan National Speedway for the NASCAR races that weekend. It`s a lot of fun, but personally I would rather be set up beside a lake somewhere.

Haven't had the camper out yet, but it wont be long. We always camp out for the first time every year the first weekend in may for the opening of trout fishing here in wisconsin. Cant wait [;)]

Sounds great Woody good luck. We camp near Peru Indiana, Dont know if there are any trout but the bass, crappie and cats bite like crazy. Can't wait to get them over the camp fire with a few cold ones. YUM

What kind of a camper you got Woody? We have a 26ft Jayco Jayflight.

We usually go camping for the WI fishing opener but won't be doing it this year due to schedule conflicts...I think we're shooting for the weekend after.  Can't beat camping by one of the best trout streams in the state, sitting around the campfire and talking about old times!

I couldnt agree more, nothin better than an opening morning with fresh trout in the frying pan.  We just have your basic 12ft coleman pop up camper. The wife and I always said we would never leave the tent but that changed when we had kids. Now we do all of our camping out of our pop up [;)]  Good luck to ya.!

We went Camping on Easter weekend....braved a pretty good storm thursdays night with high winds,rain and hail but we made it through and enjoyed the rest of the weekend.We enjoyed the camp fire and did a lot of bike riding on the trail between the 2 large Camp Grounds that are a little over a mile apart.We have a 24 foot Coachman Spirit of America Camper...hopefully we upgrade to  larger Camper or maybe a 5th Wheel in the near future?There is a nice creek close to do some fishing and it joins a larger River if you want a bigger place to fish or even go on a float trip.There are several nice State Parks around here to go camping at like Trail of Tears,Sam A. Baker,St. Francis and St. Joseph State Park and Lake Wappapelo, and Old Greenville just to name a few.
