Campy Camperton
Has anyone ever organized a retro meet up at a campground?

I was thinking along the same line but for the West Coast. This would probably have to be a regional type meet. It would take a few people to organize things. I would personally be involved in a West Coast meet up. I was thinking So. Oregon or No. California, and shouldn't be more than a 10 hour drive for those in Idaho, Nevada, and Arizona, less for So. Calif., Washington, and Oregon.

Anybody interested in meeting up this summer somewhere on the West Coast let me know about suggestions for where, when, dates, and so forth. Look forward to see if anyone is interested.

One place I enjoy is Mount Shasta. There is a campground at Siskiyou Lake.  I have gone tent camping there many times but never with an RV and do not know what kinds of hookups may be available. It's a beautiful area. There is a lake with a small beach for swimming, fishing, showers, etc. When I went there you could rent a variety of boats. We did a pontoon boat once, which is fun to do with a group. The water is pretty calm and its easy to navigate around the lake. I think they have paddle boats too. If you are a hiker there is better trout fishing in the lakes at a higher elevation not a long drive from the lake. 4x4s are useful when heading up to the smaller lakes. The Sacramento River is nearby, in fact, it originates in Mt Shasta and you can see where it comes out of the ground in the city park. They even have cabins/possibly trailers? you can rent if you don't have your own.
The town of Mt Shasta has restaurants and stores.  And you can drive more than halfway up the mountain and hike there as well. 
The biggest annual event in Mt Shasta is the 4th of July. They do it big and the town almost triples in size with all the visitors at that time.
Going then may be difficult when it comes to reservations, though its definitely worth going there sometime for the 4th. They have a run/walk that just about everyone participates in, with entertainment along the way.

A smaller, more low key event is Railroad Days in Dunsmuir.  Great for the rail fan. Dunsmuir is beside the Sacramento River, a few miles south, and downhill from Mt Shasta.

Further south you will find the Pinnacles, now a national park. They have an RV section but it is not large. Plenty of wildlife running around, hiking trails and interpretive trails. A swimming pool too.
It would be easier for SoCal folks to get to than Mt Shasta. I think the group site there is for tents as I didn't notice any hookups.  The RV campsites are fairly open, and you probably wouldn't want to be there in the middle of the summer.

Right now I am open on dates. Don't want to go somewhere hot in the middle of the summer and would prefer near the coast or the mountains.

Campy,
We live down near Philly, but have had our 166 up at Promised Land SP a few times and Rickett's Glen once. There were no hook-ups at Ricketts Glen, but they have talked about opening some sites. You might have to go with a commercial park to get a number of sites close together. The states parks book up early.
Anyway, We are game for this idea. Put me on the interested list.

Campy,
Frances Slocum SP looks nice, opens in April. Have you been there? (Can you see it from your house?)

We love the Pa state parks. Been to Slocum, Love Lackawanna, go to Hickory run a couple times a year. Worlds End probably our favorite, great trout fishing. Hickory run would be doable as they have 400 sites and the filed has new full hookups. Been to Rickets but not camped there, I did hear they are adding hook ups this year.

Ps. We have been to private parks, not fans too tight too noisy. Anyone been to Knoebels Lake glory? go there at least 3x a year

How about Sampson state park in N.Y.  252 electric, in the heart of the finger lakes wine county, $26 a night for out of state res.  Sampson also hosts other rallies there,  the tincan tourists, airstream, ect ,  They also will reserve a loop for your group, also BEER is allowed in N.Y. parks. Do a google search, sampson state park adk, for info and pictures of each site. Brian

Hello from Moyock, NC (Northeastern border of VA and NC),

Maybe we can plan something at Camp Hatteras RV Campground and Resort in the Outer Bank. I know they cater to many other camper events at their location. What I like the most there is that all pads are concrete so you don't have to worry about leveling. They have two sections, one facing the Atlantic Ocean and the other facing the sound.

There is also the New Bern KOA Holiday; this campground is across from the historical town of New Bern and was just upgraded this past summer.
