Talked to Barb at Hattie Sherwood Campground today. They are not officially open yet but she advised me that since they are getting a tremendous amount of inquiries for sites on our weekend she asks that anyone that would like to reserve a site please e-mail her with your Name, phone number, what nights you will be staying and a site preference if you have one.

She is only booking to CCFan campers right now but come March 1st they are open for business and these sites will go fast so act now. We will be in site #3 on top of the hill, same as last year.

Same here, but at the Bayview. Good to know some others will be there as well.

Alan...good call on getting the same spot. Last year, that's how we found you guys in the campground. You can definitely be seen from the road. (Hmmm...I wonder if that motorhome with the BEAUTIFUL 81 behind it is with our group?)

Can't wait!

Wait a minute. I'm not liking the sound of this. "I" talked to Barb at the campground today also. I tried to get lot 27, but when I told her where I was coming from she called me a redneck and laughed at my accent so I decided against it. I can only imagine all the trouble I'd get in surrounded by you guys.

Steve, I am really trying hard to make it. The spot in the campground is RESERVED. But if Hollywood and Co are going to try and keep me OUT of trouble, then I'm staying home. Me nor the wife have ever stepped foot in WI, so she's game to make it a vaca trip, dogs and all.

Hw, Reid coming out will be awesome but it's not working for me on the -4 crap we're dealing with right now. So cold the dog can't even go out and do his business, does the ole 3 leg squat and run. I'm sure he'll be happy to run around with Reid's duo come July.

Tim, The boat I bring will be determined by how fast YOURS is with its new upgrades, and no sandbaggin' either, but are you bringing it? And wow, I just plotted your trip and you've got 150 miles more than me!

Yep, the boat is coming with me. Im sure youve got a bunch of boats that will outrun me, even with the upgrades. I dont expect to get past 51-52, and even that may be optimistic. Hopefully the Hiteks will get me there.

According to Google maps, the distance to the campground from my parents house (where the boat is) will be 1066 miles. The 120 mile trip to CT from Boston doesnt really count since I wont be towing, but round trip will be close to 2400 miles. That should break the new truck in!

I may be blind, but is there a website for this campgroung? I see people are reserving sites. Is there a site map? I really don't care, but shade would be nice since I am sure it will either be hot as hell or raining. Or possible tornadoes like Shelbyville!

Well Todd, I hope you get the camp site reserved because lord knows you guys are some SERIOUS CAMPERS. Wait till you see these guys set up and break down a camp site, people. It's like the Weitekampt Camping Clinc. Unbelievable.

Todd's wife is one heck of a camp cook too, they really did have their act together. They put us to shame and we've got all the luxuries of home when we camp, I must be getting lazy in my old age.

thanks alan, I did get on the site and find a map. Since I am not familiar with the campground, could somebody make a good recommendation as to a good campsite for tent campers. Heck, I would like to camp next to all you party animals, but afte all the boating, drinkin', eating...I will be in a multi-induced coma and taking up valuable partying real estate next to Alan and his gang.

But can somebody tell me if there are shady sites or is this a fairly open campground? Are teh RV sites that much better than the tent sites? I don't want to take a RV site away from somebody, but if they are shady and nice, I may have to reserve one!

Yeah, we have that camping thing down pretty good. We only went once last year which sucked.

Sorry I missed everyone at Chicago Boat Show. We were there on Saturday. Going to Indy show next weekend. Need me to talk to people there???

Later and looking forward to camping suggestions!

Todd, I recommend a spot near site 28. Ive never seen the campground before, but that's where theyre booking me. I could use someone close by who knows what the hell theyre doing- I havent set up a tent in years.

Edit: just noticed your signature line about PP. Did Santa come through for you? If so, Im curious if you got the new display- it should match our gauges pretty good.

Let's see if I can help with the site selections.



This is site 31-34 viewed from the boat launch


Sites 28-29 to the back in the shaded area


Our Bounder in #3, #1&2 behind and to our left


view from #3 towards the lake


Sites 37 & 38 these are shaded nicely and right on the water


37/38 to the left, boat launch and 31-34 behind, 28-29 to the far right up in the shade


Sites 17-27 all back into a nice tree line, unless they lose trees this winter most all sites had some shade

Todd basicly three sections so to say to the campground. Up on the hill by the bath-house is the RV sites that are fairly shady maybe a little closer together than the others thou. Alan, the Band aka Paul, Pat and some others where in that area

The tents sites along the road leading down to the boat ramp are more open/less shade maybe a little incline. Hollywood was in that area last year.

Then there is another section off to the side of the ramp for tents that is real shadey and a little more shucluded(sp). It over looks the channel and theres a path up the hill to the bath-house. Thats where I was last year and thought these sites where a little larger than some of the others.

We were in 28 and 29 last year, plenty of shade and right by the ramp. Very good spots.

edit: in regards to 79's post, we spent the first night in the wrong spot (31) then moved to the right spot 28/29. 28 and 29 are much better.

I didnt think of that... super!

No PP for me yet, but its definitely on the list. Ive been hoping they would come out with a new gauge that would match the white Airguides. Maybe next year I will do some electronic work- PP would be a nice addition. Interior and exhaust will keep me busy (and broke) this spring.

Well boys, I have been e-mailing barb and told her to mark me down for spot #35. I will include the available she mentioned.

"If you will be tenting/sleeping in the truck (hollywood), I can put you anywhere. Tent spots below are nice. I have 30-34 available in tent. 4-20 and 24-26 in tent/rv.

All the tent ar nice I wuld go with 32 or 35 and up top #12."

I chose 35 because I felt bad hogging up a rv site. She said these were nice. Plus I like watching people at the ramp. Should be close enough. After looking at Alan's pictures, I sure wish she said something about 37+38! Man that would be cool. But if I can at least SEE water I will be happy.

TRBenj, Looks like we are going to be a little far apart. My wife may like us being apart because I will be drooling over your improvements you have made. Plus, if we go for a drunken boat ride, we may get our rides mixed up! No, Santa pimped me this year. No PerfectPa$$. My truck needs $1200 worth of tires before cruise. Hey, why don't you camp next to me!!!!! You may have a hole in the dash and a missing neighbor in the morning.
Tell you what, I'll set up all your camping stuff for your cruise? No problem wiht helping, glad to do it. It is always fun, actually it is more fun to watch others limp along while partaking in a cold beverage. Sorry that was a mean thing to say. But why don't you e-mail her and move on down my way. It would be cool.

Later and I hope this site info from Barb helps others!
