Tumbleweeds: Updated Camping Schedule

Well, I don't know about you but that was a great campout we had this past weekend -- and boy, did I need that! My batteries were definitely recharged. 

Janet and Tino did a great job, covering all the bases: sun, rain, clouds, hail, hot, cold, good food, great company -- and a warm campfire. Sorry Mark & Emma that you missed it. It was a lot of fun! 

Rosemary reminded me I hadn't updated the campout schedule to include Farewell Bend which is our next gathering. 

The campout is June 26-28 but you can't currently make reservations through They should be open the first of June. Rosemary & Roy, John & Nancy are the wagonmasters so you'll be hearing more from them. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. 

Thanks, Rita 😊

August 14-16 campout

Hello Everyone:  

For your information, if you still have any Idaho Power campsite reservations you need to cancel (Hells Canyon McCormick Park or CJ Strike Cottonwood Park) if you call Cindy Sorensen, Idaho Power Parks and Recreation 208-388-2231 and tell her you are cancelling because of virus concerns, you will get a full refund.  I cancelled my CJ Strike reservations today and Cindy said Idaho Power is giving full refunds for any reservations being cancelled for virus concerns.

Also a reminder for our Huckleberry Campground, Lake Cascade, reservations in July that we had to make nine months in advance, aka in 2019, if you have not already done so, you need to call Idaho Dept. of Parks and Recreation Reservations, 1-888-922-6743, and give them your 2020 Idaho Resident Sticker No. (which is your license plate number) and your 2020 State Park Passport No., which will get you a refund for these discounts.  That is next on my to-do list.  They will want your expiration date on both of those as well.  They would not take that information in 2019 because these usually expire the end of the year.

Hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having.
