The 4th annual SPRING THAW CAMPOUT AND GATHERING will take place May 11-15, 2022 at Bloomington East Campground, Cedar Ridge Loop, Lawrence, KS. The format will be the one that has worked so well for us the last few years. Just camping, campfires, pot lucks and visiting new and old friends.
The primary area chosen is the Cedar Ridge Loop area of Bloomington East Campground, Sites 40 through 53 and 95 through 101. If these sites fill up I suggest looking at sites 38, 54 and 88 through 94. Preferred sites are circled on the attached map. Orange shaded area is the primary area we want to book, then the blue shaded area should be our overflow area if the primary area is full.
No campsites have been set aside for this event. It is up to attendees to choose and reserve a site on their own.
This is a Core of Engineers park (COE) where your America the Beautiful or another Federal pass will get you a 50% discount on camping. Sites are both back-in and pull-through. All are fairly long, paved, have water, electricity, a fire ring and shade. The center of the loop will make a nice place to hold our potlucks and gatherings. To find the park's website (CLICK HERE).
You do not need to be an LOA member to attend and all style rigs/tents/etc. are welcome. Upon arrival, locate the LOA banner and check-in for a name tag and any additional instructions/schedule.
Show up and spend the weekend camping with others.
