HI club. members, Camping at bear river may be slim pickings, my self and Linny and Diana went to Bear River on this last Tuesday 8-9-11 We found most of the camp grounds full of homeless people. You may go up 1-2 day before the club outing to get a camping spot. Later Don Smith

Hey y'all,

I'd like to know if there's any interest in reserving the group campground at Bear River. We can discuss details at the club mtg.

The group campground is about a mile downstream from the day use area. I believe it costs $70 per night for a group to be there. Access is from the dayuse parking lot, via the gate at the south/west end of the parking lot. If there are enough folks to commit to a date(s) then after the new year starts reservations could be made. This would open up some areas that have not been as thoroughly prospected as the dayuse area, and equipment would not have to be moved so far to get to the gold, maybe? 

Anyway, let's hear your thoughts.

Thanks, sourdough joe

I think the cost is $75 per day with an Application Fee of $5.00. There is a refundable deposit of $250.00. The following link is for the Bear River Campground. There are no reservations yet for October 21-24 or October 28-31 this year. The river is pretty low by then and you have some great access to areas. I went to the Group Campgrounds last year and did really well with a sliuice.

I would be interested in doing this. I think that this would also be a good place for us newbies to get some more practice in at a place that we know a little about already. Both me and my brother would be willing to do this.

I think an outing at the reserved camping spots is a good idea.  I'm sure we'll discuss more.

I'm up for an outing there.  Just let me know the dates.  After the end of the month, I have no overtime resrictions, so anytime after Oct. 1 I can schedule.

not that it makes much a difference , but did anyone see the gold that the 155 produced in hurthawks labor day gold video? Groveland has a toilet and no reservation fee. just my two cents.  

75 x 3=225 that could go for ? who knows
