View Full Version : CM12 Camping outside SRCG

01-08-2012, 10:03 AM
Anyone planning to camping somewhere other than SRCG for CM12. I don't want to go back to SRCG this year personally. Looking for company somewhere else.

Anyone interested in booking/splitting a BLM group site or group site at Portal behind SRCG? Area BFE?

I will have Bridger (2.5yr old) with me this year.

Assuming I can go this year, I'd be down. I really don't like the campground.

I we can get a few I'll call the BLM and reserve a group site somewhere. Most sites require 10 people or so. Some more. Sand Flats, Goose Island would both be good spots to be still close to town.

I'm interested. I like the camaraderie at Slickrock, but would consider this for the sake of variety if we get a good crew. One of the BLM sites on the way to Kane Creek perhaps, or as you wrote, sand flats. Night wheeling fins?

Id be interested in that too. Sand flats is good for the mtb.

From Goose Island could do a night run to Top of the World or Dome Plateau.

I got a spot at Goose Island. 4/30-5/6/11

Space for 5 vehicles. Site is set up for tent camping. Trailer space is very limited based on info from BLM. I'm hoping to scout this during the pre run or sooner.

So ideally I'm looking for 5 vehicles that plan to get into Moab early for the event. I have the site starting Monday night. Family's encouraged. I will have my son Bridger (2.5yr old) with me and Porter of course. I don't want to party it up but looking to enjoy some beverages around a fire.

Cost is based on the total number of people in the site. Goal is 10-15 and your final cost would be based on that. Around $70 for the week give or take depending on number of people. Much cheaper the SRCG. Vault toilets-yes, showers-no, water onsite-no, delicious Durango based micro beers-very strong chance:drink:.

I camped there maybe 10 years ago. Remember some shade and nice soft sand for your tent.

If your interested please PM me with the dates you plan to attend, number of people, vehicle, etc... I have until 30 days prior to finalize.

But if I am coming from Koko, I will only need two nights.
Thu and Fri.

I have hot shower setup, you bring the water!

By the way this is only 5 minutes from SRCG, north of town along the river. For you MTB riders out there, its the campground right below the exit from the Porcupine Rim trail.

Here are some pictures of the site complements of Chris Davis. There is a defined parking area and the small sun/rain shelter for the group site. Tents would need to be dispersed with-in the site.

Man that 100 is sweet!!!

Also if you look at the 3rd picture, there are really nice single spots on either side of that road and I think those are first come first serve..

If Corbet's group gets full and you want to hang with his gang, you could always have some one park in the spot, worth paying 12 bucks a night to have a spot reserved for you when you get back into town..

If this is where all the Steam Engine is going to be kept cold, I will be stopping over fo sho!

This is a really nice area and super close to town but didn't feel that way..

Corbet you might be on to something here with this location!

Single sites are first come first serve. Only groups sites are reservable at BLM campgrounds.

We have camped at Goose Island a few times. One of my favorites as far as an improved campground goes.

Update on the site. Including myself I have 4 families confirmed camping in the group spot with a total of 6 kids. 14 total people.

Still looking for one more family who would like to share the spot.

I'm also going to bump the reservation to start on Wednesday rather than Monday to keep cost down and I decided on some other pre-CM12 activities.

We are planning a group meal in camp Saturday night to wrap things up.

PM me if your still looking for accommodations.

I would like to join you for Thur, Fri and Sat if you can let me know the cost.
Now that you are doing a shorter week it may make sense even if I will not be there Wed.

Just got the water heater for the camper. Showers for everyone if you'd like.
