It is about 2 1/2 hours away from me Dawn.  I will try to get out there, but with taking off last weekend and the way my schedual runs I can't promise anything.  It gives me a month to try to fit it in, so its not like it is not do-able.

Bill - thanks for offering, I thought it was a little closer for you - don't worry about it. That is a to far to go to simply checkout a campground (in my opinion).  I'll try and get to Google maps and try to research it that way.

I was just about to offer a road trip since I typically don't need much of an excuse for a road trip, but I just saw that for me its a 4 hour ride. So I guess a road trip to scope out is a bit out of the question..... but a 4 hour trip for camping is another matter..

Looks like such a nice area, but just checked google and it looks like a 6 1/2 hr drive for us. A bit much for a weekend... :-\

My sister and her family camped here for over ten years on a ten day watersking vacations.  I have a call into her.

Lou,
We scheduled this after the kids are out of school so we can make it at least a 4 day weekend.

Our 2 DD's are going to Europe at the end of June for 10 days. Not sure of the exact dates yet.
The DW and I would like to to go to this one if the timing is right. We rented a cabin on the lake about 5 yrs ago.
It's a beautiful lake.

Right now, we are scheduled for 11 days at Army Corps of Engineers West Thompson Lake CG in May.
Rally week at Chewonki CG in ME in July and Jan's every summer 10 days in August at Fishermans CG in RI.
I just don't have that much vacation time like DW does and any CG's that she'd spend a week at need to be nearby.
Plus that is in the middle of the Cape Ann, Ma Rally and the Salisbury Beach rally, both of which we're planning to attend.
Just can't do a 6 1/2 ride each way between two other rallies. Half that distance and we'd be there. Wish we could go, it looks great.

Just an FYI - if we stay with this weekend, it's Father's Day.

My sister stayed at a different campground.

I am thinking I may be able to get up early Sat. and make the trip up to check for myself.  Here is a review from someone that knows the area from another site.

I perfer the point over senoia. Camp 126A is the best.
Senoia Pro's and Con's
Cleaner
Better Bathrooms
and if your not looking for water the top is great for more privacy

Smaller sites
more traffic
sites not flat

Point Pro's and Con's
Larger sites
Flat sites
easier to park

Small dated bathrooms
Most water sites are reserve only

In doing a little research, I have come up with another option that would probably be a lot easier to make happen.  Instead of Seven Points, there is a private place.  Lake Raystown Resort.  Sites are a bit more expensive, but also extremly nice!  We could get the waterfront sites which include water and electric, cable tv and wireless internet.  The resort also has some shops and a large paddle boat ride, as well as boat rentals.  Being private, maybe Joe could work his magic and get better rates also?  Take a look and see if we want to consider it?

we're open to whatever the majority wants. Whichever place we stay, we'd have to drive to the trail head for biking - unless we stated at Susquannock, which has no bathrooms, no flush toilets...not an option IMHO  ;)

BiXLL:
Lake Raystown Resort is where my sister and her family camped for about ten years.  Very nice place.
I called the campground yesterday afternoon because I'm not sure if we can even get in there.  I'll let you know.

I just got off the phone with the management at Raystown Resort Campground.  It was 1hr 24min call and I need to gather all the info to share.  Short Version, we can do a group there next year and they have space available... which I've blocked.  More coming very soon.
