Halfmoon campground is a nice place

Only a few minute ride from the trail head or general store.
Last time i went, that is where i stayed. However.. Pretty much zero phone service for verizon.
And keep in mind, they are cash only. I will probably be booking with them again.

See the first post of this thread for multiple campground suggestions.
I think members will be in multiple near by sites do to availability.
Currently there is still some availability in Windrock Park but not a lot.
It is the first underlined link in Rzr_Joe's post.

She is going to Put-In-Bay with her three daughters that weekend, and btw that is her birthday weekend. I really tried to talk her into going. I also tried to get her to go to Rush, KY in two weeks, but... nope not going.

Reservations set, I should be there Wed sometime until Sun morning and stayng at HalfMoon campground.

It hasn't been mentioned yet, but maybe we can plan a good cookout one night as a meet-and-greet type get together. Doesn't have to be anything super complicated. Maybe just like everyone meet at "X" location, bring what you want to cook/eat/drink, and hang out by a firepit.

I'm at the Half Moon campground. I'll be there on Wednesday for the fun stuff that is possible on 30 inch tires. I doubt I could follow someone on 35/37 inch tires or RZR_Joe.
:cool:
Our buddy that rides with us is only on 31’s. He follows us on most trials. We’ll help ya through if you wanna come hit it!
