opening day

Aiming to open April 19, 2019

Now that our long cold winter is coming to an end, yes, spring really has sprung—at least in terms of our Gregorian calendar, and in spite of the recent April snow storm that dumped another foot of snow and ice onto our very-determined-to-thaw lawns… we’re still looking toward the weekend of April 19 to open the campground.

Last weekend, working under merciful and good 68 & sunny skies, we got the water turned on, hot water heaters pumping, and lawn mowers prepped. This week, trapped by icy cold winds all day inside the store, we took inventory, stocked fresh goods, and organized the office. So, yeah, we’re ready to camp.

We are still waiting for the frost boils to thaw so we can drive on the roads safely. So, we’ll post regular updates if & when there’s something new to report.

Meanwhile, let’s start camping next weekend.

Opening Day Update: May 4... it's official!

We're almost there...

Really, this time. It's been a wild winter ride this year, and, as usual, that spring ground hog is a liar liar stuck in mire. We are waaaaay past six more weeks of winter. And snow is still on the way...

Here's the story... On March 28, our Tentative Opening day was: Friday April 6th

April 2: We want to let you know that although we are anxiously working to open as soon as is super-humanly possible, we are now hunkering down for a snow storm headed our way tomorrow-followed by a week of below freezing temps and more snow expected on Sunday-Monday April 8-9th. YIKES!!

Target Opening day is now: Friday April 13, 2018.

April 10: Due to the unusual volume of weather-related difficulties we're experiencing this month, our opening wait time is now 6... no 13, no 20 days past our target of April 1. 

Target opening day is now: Friday April 20, 2018

April 18: We regret to inform you that due to the current weather conditions--aka today's snow storm dumping 6-10" of new snow and freezing temps allowing it to pile up, we are adjusting the season opening date.

2018 Opening Day for Camping: (maybe) Friday April 27

Hopefully! We will email Seasonal Families in the event that we can open earlier.  it's inevitable now, as after today's snow, we are looking at a week of warm spring weather... plenty of time to get frost out of the ground and firm it up so we can get our camp on!

April 24: Believe it or not, the frost is still not out of the ground yet. And, we still have ice and snow covering various parts of the campground. In fact, the road to the landing is covered with ice--all the way down (sigh). We have never seen a winter hang on so long nor a spring come so late before. This is definitely the latest we've ever opened (heavy sigh). But, it's time to start camping. So...

It's Official: Opening Day: Friday May 4, 2017.

The end.
