The usual suspects have not made any formal plans for a summer campout yet. We have been inspired by Tom Mag to get our asses in gear and sort it out.

Those of us who have attended some of the more recent cal gatherings have been leaning towards a more off grid/unincorporated camp this time. No national or state parks -  maybe even something free!! 

We had discussed Carrizo plain, or other BLM land, national forest camp sites and several other ideas without making any decision. 

Lets sort it out!

Whos coming???

Linus, gonna have to be no higher than the foothills, tons of snow high up. Along I-80 has gotten over 50' of snow. Thinking many places won't be accessible until late July for mid to late summer trip. Spring trip like Outlaw mentioned to me a week ago, will have to be in the valley, low foothills.

Might consider Masterson group camp or juanita lake group camp as options for pay sites.

I search for national forest campground in google and then click the map tab and just look around. 

Masterson is only a mile from a small lake at plaskett meadows campground. Its 75 per night, but if we share it it would be reasonable. 


KW12330 - do you have any suggestions that we might consider near you so you can make it???

Check out Bushy tail campground at lake trinity.  I have camped a few time at this campground.  Both times there was only one other group in the campground.  it is really nice has hot showers  A short walk to the lake.

Carrizo plains Is BLM run.  They have shelters for the sun.  Must bring your own water.  Open land area, neat to see inside painted rock to see Indian paintings.

Another spot if you want to look at if your looking at come that far south is Hi mountain campground in Los padres forest.  This if one of my favorite campgrounds  must bring own water, it has out houses.   can see for miles from the old fire look out.   1st come first served. no reservation but there is 12 sites and only see one other camper when I camped there. cost is adventurer pass. a year pass is $30 buck with second pass for $5  or $5 a night.

in the same area is laz panza campground  you make reservation for this site.

I would like to go again. I will have to check a few things but I think May 3, 4, 5 may be good. I am open to anywhere but agree with Duane it will have to be fairly low that time of year with the snow and all. I have my Jeep trailer fixed up and have no problem camping in the “wild” so to speak. So campground or not, it doesn’t matter to me but I am always open to seeing new places.

any more suggestions for a location?

It would be great to use one of the small remote campgrounds but I worry that we may not secure spaces if we cannot make reservations. So, I think it may be best to either choose a reservable site or a BLM or similar primitive camp. Anyone want to go to the eastern sierra? 

Lets think of a few more possible spots before settling on one.

bodie is a great place and there is unlimited dispersed camping around that area. The trouble is making sure everyone can find eachother - especially when many times folks arrive after dark.

Love the Eastern Sierra.  So much history, so few people.  I have camped a lot up by Masonic which is North of Bodie but a 4 wheel drive into and way too high for early Spring camping as I think would be Bodie.  Too much snow at both.  South of Bodie, North of  Mono Lake is some open land but havent camp down there and don't know about the weather in May.

There is a small campground called “Nelder’s Grove” which is a small group of giant sequoias out of Oakhurst, east of Fresno off the Southern entrance to Yosemite.I have camped there in May with a black powder group the last 15 years. We have got snowed on once but that is unusual. The campground does not take reservations so I wouldn’t camp there but there is plenty of open camping on the way in, one spot along a creek. Camped there last year. Our group is meeting there this year on the 15th. I doubt if anyone would be there as it is mainly used in the summer and hunting season. The Creekside camping has lots of open spaces but has no facilities. Linus, you could easily get your old trailer in there. Just a thought.

Sure, you mean Randy of course.

Here are the directions if you want to check it out on Google Maps:
Take highway 41 out of Oakhurst about 3 miles (not sure where the city limits end)
Turn Right on Sky Ranch Road, Road 632 (marked)
Follow SkyRanch about 5 miles up the hill
Turn Left on Forestry Road 6S47Y towards Nelder Grove (marked)
About 1/2 mile down where 6S47Y crosses California Creek is where the camping is.  Either side of the creek. 

First one up could mark the turns with a Coleman Lantern sign

The area is fir/pine/cedar/dogwood mix forest.  The creek is small, I have not seen fish since the drought but it makes a nice backdrop.  Could be buggy due to a swampy area farther downstream.  Camping fairly flat and easy to pull a small trailer in.  Outlaw would have no trouble with his.  May have to pick up some trash due to pine pigs but otherwise a nice site. 

There is a landing a little further up the road where the road splits that I have camped in too that would not be as buggy as there is no creek.  That area would not hold very many people though.  I will look for some pictures.

Marty, Why ya picking on me??? Last in, last out. Thats just how I roll. Lol. Just ribbing ya friend.

I am looking forward to May 3,4,5. We need a positive destination. Thinking maybe Lake Pillsbury as those from the north would have little weekend traffic. Those south like Linus, Marty, Matt, and Outlaw may need an earlier start Friday AM to beat the weekend rush through the Bay Area.
So, just a suggestion. I’ve been there once 20+ years ago. All I remember is girls beer and guitars by the fire til the wee hours. A wee bit closer might be Lake Mendocino. The eastern side of the lake is nice though I havent checked availability lately. They open camps as needed based on reservation numbers. I cant recommend the upper part of the lake as the sites are small. I’m willing to look into any of these if there is interest. I believe Mendo Natl Forest manages each.

Any other ideas. I know everyone around here has cabin fever so I bet people will start booking sites soon. Especially for that weekend.
Randy

Quote
Rfieldbuilds
I will add, all of these other sites sound nice too. Eastern Sierra will be nice after some snowpack recedes. The BLM down south sounds cool and is a bit farther than I would like to go, but it isnt snowed in 😀. Same with Marty’s recommendation. I would do that trip if there is a concensus. Actually, gonna double check dates with wife, but otherwise my calendar is free that weekend.
Randy

Quote
MartyJ
Either of Randy’s suggestions would work for me and I would come North on 5 and go around Clear Lake so traffic would not be an issue other then Clear Lakes seniors drivers and the 40mph motor homes. I have to confess I haven’t got a kitchen pass yet either. I am the master of my house until she gets home from shopping. Then I pad out and bring in the bags.

I need to add if Randy brings out a guitar and beer, I’m going back to my camp.

Well guys, I got a hall pass from the wife today for weekend of May 3-5.

Suggest we narrow down a spot. Linus, ya wanna call it. Those who can come- will come, those who cant, wont. Hard to please everyone every time, but we need to make plans and potentially reservations too.

Cheers Guys!

We have decided to do lake pillsbury. 
https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/mendocino/recarea/?recid=25166

We hope to use Oak Flat campground. No reservations are possible so we have a risk of it being occupied. Lets see if anyone can come early (thursday) to secure some sites. 

https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/mendocino/recarea/?recid=25176

There are plenty of other campgrounds around the lake such as:

Navy Campground
https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/mendocino/recarea/?recid=25174

Pogie point
https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/mendocino/recarea/?recid=25180

Fuller Grove
https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/mendocino/recarea/?recid=25172

Sunset
https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/mendocino/recarea/?recid=25182


These other campgrounds are more expensive so I chose oak flat. We can move around the lake if we want to. Additionally, we could all move further into the national forest as there are more dispersed camping options there that we can explore. The old runway at lake pillsbury is now a shooting range and ( as far as I know) we can still shoot there. If you want to bring your civil war cannon to a coleman campout, this may be your time to shine. 

I hope to come thursday night. If anyone else can come earlier on thursday, that would probably be a good idea!

Sorry to be late to the game - I would vote for a dispersed site myself.   Then there are no issues with neighbors or it filling up, or reservations.

The trick there is finding one big enough.  

I'm in either way, baring any surprise.  My buddy may also surface, and maybe this time more than a day visit.

Cool. Im in on Pillsbury. Maybe even go up Thursday and help Tom set up some survey markers and stake the lines for our area.
That is unless someone can make a run up their earlier and find a suitable off the grid type of wilderness camp. If I have time, I will, bit the odds are low. So for now, lets just say Pillsbuy on May 3-5 and get a headcount.

thanks randy. 

Outlaw -
I would love to get an off grid thing going on for us but it seems difficult as they are usually harder to get to, harder to know about/be aware of, and some members just need some facilities. 
I think as we continue to work on these campouts we should start spending a little time looking around the areas we pick for possible future sites. I think this particular trip will be a good one for that as there are known places near by that we could check out. I certainly know of some great places but they are hard to get to and I dont want to make randy do technical off roading in the dark!

I can make this, just been waiting for details to get cemented in place. See regs regarding camping in the area, don't know now far away from the basin one would have to be to do dispersed camping. I can get there late morning on Thursday, May 2. Limit 6 bodies per campsite, over 2 vehicles extra. Will this be an issue? Have not been at the lake for over 50 years when my grandparents had me along, seems they never took my brother, maybe he had Little League games.

Marty, Thats great. Please scoop up all you can at that price- I am a hoarder, and will take any leftovers after the group camping has picked through your offerings. They do make good testing mantles, though once lit dont like to be moved at all.

Duane, you are green stickered? The forest cops are tough on bikes up there, probably more so with it being Cinco de Mayo. Also for you Duane, do you mind making a posting for CCS? You spend more time there than I and are likely to get better responce should other stovies wanna come and camp.

Making the Great Coleman Campout Great again.

First off Image here stolen from a 2012 Nor Cal Great Coleman Camp thread. Looks like a great light up. Lets get this happening again!



I'm actually trying to get everyone listed here in one place so when we have future events, we have a list of current collectors in the Nor-Cal/NV area. If you see someone you know is a collector, but hasn't replied (on this thread) or isn't listed, please let me know, or copy and paste the list adding their name and potentially their home GPA market. If anyone doesn't want their town or county listed, or its wrong, PM me and I will delete it. .
It is nice seeing this list grow.  Hopefully we can add in the Southern California Crew to this list and maybe do one Yearly NorCal/NV -AND- So Cal group outing



Thx guys!

Finally... A Flyer.
We got a flyer put together with a bit more info. Some will be arriving as early as Thursday and securing sites as it is a first come first serve area. We are expecting 8-10 collectors and some extras as of this point. This number will grow and likely exceed the 12 available spots in this campground. There is an adjacent camp 100 yds away called Navy Camp and many others scattered about Lake Pillsbury. I believe its $10/camp night so very affordable. I know most guys will be willing to share sites for other tent campers, just ask.
Very much looking forward to this!

I will be bringing GALLONS of Coleman Fuel to send home with everybody. Priced at $5/gallon for sale or to sweeten up any trade deals in the works. May also be using it to light a fire if there are no Boy Scouts in the group. [Flamie][camp1][Flamie] I will also have a lot of canister LP/LP Butane backpacking fuel mix cans and maybe some one lb. canisters of straight LP.

I will have to put my thinking cap on and see what I can muster up for trades and sales. If anyone is looking for anything, please do post up here what you would like to see at this campout.

At this point, for lanterns I am thinking about bringing primarily single mantles for us to enjoy. Happy to bring stoves or doubles for anyone else's pleasure if those requests come in. I will also be bringing some older stoves and a really nice kero double burner- I will be really surprised if this one doesn't go home with someone.
