First campout - April 7-8-9 - Snake River RV Resort

To the Tumbleweeds: 

After an interesting drive on Saturday and seeing quite a few patches of snow all over Farewell Bend campgrounds, Jim and I have ruled that one out for the first campout of the year. It was also about 10 degrees colder up there and I don't think that would make for a pleasant weekend. 

We stopped by Snake River RV Resort in Homedale on the way back and really liked the place. It's only about an hour's drive for you Boise folks (about 45 minutes for us and the McDonnell's in Nampa!) and it was quite lovely. Right on the Snake River, the grass is green; there is a covered and almost enclosed Pavilion looking over the river which will be perfect for dinner; and Dave, the owner, likes the Tumbleweeds -- as long as he only has to deal withONE person! (Guess that's me!)

I have attached a flyer with all the info from the Snake River RV Resort in Homedale and some recreational ideas too. We'll be in Sites 22-31, depending on how many want to join us. 

Please DO NOT call direct for reservations. Let me know if you are attending the campout. 

The price is $27 if I make the reservations, $30 if YOU call; also to have the $150 Pavilion Reservation fee waived, we need to reserve as a group. The sites have water, electric, and sewer. I will send Dave a list of members coming on what days next Monday

By Monday, March 26th, I need to know which days you will be camping and how many people in your party (adults, kids, pets, etc). Also, do you NEED 50 amp service or is 30 amp okay?
  • Thursday, April 6
  • Friday, April 7
  • SaturdayApril 8
  • SundayApril 9
  • Monday, April 10
Snake River RV prefers cash or check, but for an extra $2.00 convenience fee, you can use a credit card. You pay when you arrive. 

Dinner will be shredded beef sandwiches with sides, salads, and desserts provided by other members. 

If you can't make it for the weekend, please come join us for dinner. We'll probably eat about 5:30-6:00 pm, depending on the weather. Let me know if you are coming just for dinner so we can plan for enough food. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone on April 7th. Everyone is to concentrate on GOOD WEATHER!!!

Thanks, your wagon-masters,
Rita & Jim
