Informal Lance Get Together at Woods Canyon Lake AZ "Aspen Campground" - June 2018

Woods Canyon Lake AZ - Aspen Campground

Woods Canyon Lake, AZ June 6-12

Jayne and I will be arriving at about 3-4pm on the 6th and will be at site #117.  If you have any questions please post it on the main discussion page for Current Rallies.  This is an "INFORMAL" Lance get together, no activities planned other than a nightly cocktail party for what ever beverage you like (BYOB)...  I'll have a ham radio set up and perches for hummingbird photography and other critters.  You are welcome to sit in or set up your camera along side mine and shoot away!!!

It appears we have a reservation conflict. I made a reservation for site #116 on Dec.10th arriving Thu June 7, departing Wed Jun 13 and have written confirmation from recreation.gov

Yeah, I mistakenly said site #116.    The correct site is #114!  Just a slip of my index finger on the keyboard.  I'll arrive on Wednesday, the 6th, and depart on Sunday, the 10th.  I'll probably move down to Canyon Point and check in there for a couple of days or more.  I won't be in a big hurry to get back to the heat!!

When I made my reservations last night site #111 was still showing available!

Also we will have a dog or two along with us as well as the human kind of little ones! I expect our older son will opt to stay in Yuma working and doing school!

Tim,

I have site #116, right next to you and across from Rob.  I MAY have two generators with me - you could use one of them, if needed.

Lew,

We took a little ride to the Rim today, got some great photos! Although the Aspen CG is closed, the trails are open and we hiked around CG and Lake.  Lots of fishing going on today! Not sure if anyone caught any. Ran into a small herd of young elk, the girls had fun. Our campsites look great! Lots of shade! Here’s a few pics of our view. 

Nice photos Gene....  usually there is a lot more snow than that, I hope they get a lot more before winter closes out or else it will be bone dry come June!

Lew...are you going to have your new camper by then? That would be great...maybe we can convoy up together! When are you planning to arrive?

SLR...great pics and beautiful area? Are you camping up in the area or did you just drive up for the day?

Rob...when I checked this morning there were a couple sites left around where you mentioned. We will certainly have our two little ones with us (11 & 8) so I hope that will be ok with everyone? Are there any others with children that are going?

Great to see another LOA member joining the group, really looking forward to meeting some new faces and some familiar ones.  We have 3 little ones but of the 4 legged variety, Dillion, Mason and Emma.  They love camping, you should see how they get when Jayne starts packing a few days in advance! It’s too funny...

We were up for the day. Checking out CG, hiking trails, and sites and to let our girls (Sadie and Saffron) playing the snow. The weather was spectacular!

It appears that these are all non-electric sites? Are campers allowed to use generators? I see site 118 is still available but it is non-electric so I just wanted to ask how you all planned on camping up there?

Thanks

Tim

I thought I already replied but I'm looking and don't see it....  Sorry for the delay.

These are non-electic (hook-up) sites.  The camp ground has a number of locations within the camp ground to fill up with potable water so that's nice and on the way out there is a dump site for $7....

Generators are allowed, we carry one just in case but reply on our solar panels, love the solar panels!

Each site has a paved pad, a picnic table, a grill and fire pit.  If we don't get a good amount of rain between now and June there may be fire restrictions.  However, you are always allowed to burn a fire pit with propane.  We have a portable on with lava rock and it works great.

Let me know if you have any other questions.  118 is right across from us and is a nice site with lots of tall pines around it!!!

Hope to see you there and I am surprised that there are any site left, especially in the are we are in.

Thanks

Rob

Hey Tim,

correct, none of the sites have electric and they do allow generators.  We have solar panels but always bring the gen. Incase the suns not shining down on us.  118 is right across from us and is a nice deep site.  Each site has a picnic table, grill and fire pit.  If we don’t get more rain soon there may be fire restrictions comes June, how ever, we have a propane portable pit with lava rock and those are always allowed.  Hope you can make it, not many site left!!!

Rob and Jayne,

Gene and I will be there for a long weekend, Friday June 8 through the Monday the 11th. We will be in site 110. We are looking forward to meeting up with fellow Lancers!

Very cool Gene, really looking forward to meeting you guys and everyone else that’s going to be there...  I’ll need to set up a time for happy hour, this is getting bigger, so glad so many have decided to make the trip.  

😁

There are only a couple of sites left in the entire park, if you have any interest I’d get it booked pretty soon, within the next few days.  If you miss getting in you’ll have to watch the reservation site daily, they will get cancellations once in a while...
