We'd like to bring our camper down, but it would limit our travel speed for sure. Were thinking about it. I'm also thinking about a cabin at the campground, that sounds pretty good too. We could bbq in the evening for dinner, or make the trip into town for food. I'm going to call on Monday to find out availability for cabins. It would be cool if we were close enough to hang out in the evening.

Windrock Park Campground is located ON SITE at the Coal Creek OHV Area. The campground includes full RV hookups, cabins, tent camp sites and a shower house. Access to the trail head is via a private trail.

I will wait to see what you all want to do ...camp or motel....I may stay at the rv park and do a couple of extra days...cause I'm retired and cause I can  :P

Haven't decided on camping or not yet. What do you guys want to do? I thought if we did the Danial boone forest we could do a one day out, camp, then one day back thing.  If we can find reasonable rooms in Oliver Springs, we could also enjoy some Sat. Night fun there. I have to check the website again for Coal Creek, but I do think there's a campground there as well.

Fantastic!  I already got vacation for Fri / Mon approved!  We rode Coal Creek on New Year's Day 07 and had a great time.  Sun went down way too fast that day.  Ya'll camping?

I have not been to Coal Creek (Wind Rock Mountain) in two years but had a blast every time I have been there (many times) It is well worth the cost of admission. I was an annual member there fir three years before moving to Florida and now that I'm back I'm just waiting on my ride to join back up again.

OK, Cool, dates look good , now has anybody been to Coal Creek, or Danial Boone Nat forest? The kind folks at the forest service sent me a slew of maps of the roads in the DBNF, but I'd have to get detailed topo maps from them that show trails. I'm kinda leaning twards Coal Creek TN, as it's somewhat like Harlan in that the trails are all marked according to difficulty, and at 75000 acres and 125+miles of marked trails, there should be plenty to do. Whaddya think? The only other thing I can think of is at Coal Creek you have to purchase a use tag. It's not too much, $17 per day, or $35 for a two day pass. Not sure what fees are involved in the Nat Forest.

OK,  dates that will work for me and Rita- weekend of 28th and 29th of June. The next weekend is 4th of July weekend, and we'd prefer not to be on the road if possible. Besides, we're taking Fri and Mon off as travel days, and this year the 4th falls on a Friday. Travel would be a mess to say the least. So how's everyone else feel about that?

I feel the same way!  Some parks get way too crowded on holiday weekends as well.

Great Lil Red! Be great to see ya'll again. Let's Do it! Tracker 33, 55 mph is plenty fast enough, just give yourself all the time you need to get there. Let's get some more Trackicks going! KingZoo, I'm driving 700miles, If can make it, any good running ZUK should be able to as well. Come on, we need you!

:D Cool, Did you want to do somthing over the 4th of July weekend? The 4th falls on a Friday this year, That would make for a nice long weekend. Or, I could do the weekend before, as I'm owed a lond weekend. What works for you and Duane? 

We're open to either, I reckon.  I'll hit Jerry up about it when I see him on Monday as well.
