BelchFire, that does look about as midstate as we could get. It also looks like a very nice CG as well. My former minister is from Blackshear and I know he paddles the Okeefenokee "trails" and always spoke highly of the nature and landscape of the area. My DH worked down that way and spent a day at the Andersonville museum. He said it very interesting. The little train ride sounds neat as well.

BTW, our zip code is 30157.

of where everyone is.

Anytime would be good for me, except April 5/7. Glad to see the planning has begun. The fall rally was great!       30741

Sailingfree and Mwowenby, where would you like to camp at? I am glad your in, but we need a little more input.
Campdad, sounds like you have the makings for an awesume campground in the works! Get us some power and a bath house and you would probably have some "frequent vistors"! LOL. On a serious note, I would like to know how far are you and Surgipat and the others from Alabama willing to travwl for the rally. We haven't set the location yet. I am hearing veterns state park, amenity, Mckinney has been suggested again. They all sound great! Lets get a majority. We need to hear from the former rally members and future rally members- yz10??? & Carolina Campers! Thanks for input Belchfire! Come on Florida members, need yours as well and anybody else who might want to attend! :baseballhat:

Life is like a Roller Coaster, you go high and low with some sharp turns! Just hold on!

as long as finances and work schedules fall into place, I would like to concur with Belchfire and say Veteran's State Park.

we have never been, and I have heard great reviews from others who have been there.

Our zip code is 36201, which puts me just about center of the map.  We don't mind 2-3 hours tours.  Of course , one like Gilligans wouldn't be too bad in the right place.

Our Zip is 35404. We would like to stay within a 5 hour drive from our place. But we had such a great time at the Fall Rally, we'd certainly be willing to extend that range.

Camp Dad, that is a super offer to rally on your land, but I just don't think I can get by without my microwave and Mr. Coffee.  :)

I sent a message to Patrick and Jodi fom FL ("Ladyhawke") letting them know we are starting the planing for spring rally and also to let them know we are on this forum now. It would be great to get them involved in the discussion.

Always interested in camping!!! A place with a lake would be wonderful  ;).  Much further north than Atlanta would be hard for us. 
My goal in life is to be the person my dog thinks I am.

Veteran's has a nice lake with a beach and kayaks/canoes for rent.  Lots of walking trails with geocaching.  And it's probably 2 hours or more south of Atlanta and right off the interstate.

But I'm not trying to "sell" you guys on Veteran's.  Anything in that general vicinity would be equally amenable to all.  For that matter, I've always wanted to visit Providence Canyon, but there's no lake there.  It's not far from Andersonville Prison, for those history buffs who would like to see that.

edit:  I just noticed that Providence doesn't actually offer RV camping.  That's on a different site.  Oh well; it sounded like a good idea.

5hrs away wouldn't be bad, would drive further, depending if time and finances allowed it.
