Very cool Joe.. look forward to meeting you and the rest of the folks making the trip. The weather is typically very nice in early June. C U there, can’t wait, it’s always our nicest trip of the year!!! Rob
There are only a couple of sites left in the entire park, if you have any interest I’d get it booked pretty soon, within the next few days. If you miss getting in you’ll have to watch the reservation site daily, they will get cancellations once in a while...
Very cool Gene, really looking forward to meeting you guys and everyone else that’s going to be there... I’ll need to set up a time for happy hour, this is getting bigger, so glad so many have decided to make the trip. 😁
It appears that these are all non-electric sites? Are campers allowed to use generators? I see site 118 is still available but it is non-electric so I just wanted to ask how you all planned on camping up there? Thanks Tim
Hey Tim, correct, none of the sites have electric and they do allow generators. We have solar panels but always bring the gen. Incase the suns not shining down on us. 118 is right across from us and is a nice deep site. Each site has a picnic table, grill and fire pit. If we don’t get more rain soon there may be fire restrictions comes June, how ever, we have a propane portable pit with lava rock and those are always allowed. Hope you can make it, not many site left!!! Rob 😀
I thought I already replied but I'm looking and don't see it.... Sorry for the delay. These are non-electic (hook-up) sites. The camp ground has a number of locations within the camp ground to fill up with potable water so that's nice and on the way out there is a dump site for $7.... Generators are allowed, we carry one just in case but reply on our solar panels, love the solar panels! Each site has a paved pad, a picnic table, a grill and fire pit. If we don't get a good amount of rain...
We took a little ride to the Rim today, got some great photos! Although the Aspen CG is closed, the trails are open and we hiked around CG and Lake. Lots of fishing going on today! Not sure if anyone caught any. Ran into a small herd of young elk, the girls had fun. Our campsites look great! Lots of shade! Here’s a few pics of our view.
Lew...are you going to have your new camper by then? That would be great...maybe we can convoy up together! When are you planning to arrive? SLR...great pics and beautiful area? Are you camping up in the area or did you just drive up for the day? Rob...when I checked this morning there were a couple sites left around where you mentioned. We will certainly have our two little ones with us (11 & 8) so I hope that will be ok with everyone? Are there any others with children that are going?
Great to see another LOA member joining the group, really looking forward to meeting some new faces and some familiar ones. We have 3 little ones but of the 4 legged variety, Dillion, Mason and Emma. They love camping, you should see how they get when Jayne starts packing a few days in advance! It’s too funny... Rob
When I made my reservations last night site #111 was still showing available! Also we will have a dog or two along with us as well as the human kind of little ones! I expect our older son will opt to stay in Yuma working and doing school!
Yeah, I mistakenly said site #116. The correct site is #114! Just a slip of my index finger on the keyboard. I'll arrive on Wednesday, the 6th, and depart on Sunday, the 10th. I'll probably move down to Canyon Point and check in there for a couple of days or more. I won't be in a big hurry to get back to the heat!!
I just saw this. Was it ever posted in the discussion? Wish I could have made it but it's only a week apart from the annual SCIO. I've been trying for the past 3 years to have someone do a GTG who lives in CO. All I got was places to camp but no one wanted to set it up. Thank you Rob for doing this. My U.S. map looks like it's missing a tooth and it's CO. I'm planning on a trip there this year so I'll keep in touch, maybe we can hook up since you know the places....
I will be coming up for a couple nights (6th & 7th) Thanks Gene and Sherry for bringing this get-together to my attention. I've got a few questions about Lances! And I'm looking forward to meeting some Lance folks. See you in June! Campsite #110 June 6,7
Wow, I just did a run down on the sites reserved for our informal get together: 107,108,110,111,114,116,117,118,119 It's going to be cool to see so many Lance campers in this section. I think I need to do a special event t-shirt for this. I'll post it when I get it done. :-) This is the start of our camping season for us, just when the Phoenix area is heating up so we are REALLY looking forward to meeting everyone! Rob
Rob! We gave one away at RITV 3. Joe they work very well and a number of my Lance friends have installed them. One installed one in his 2285 with a 15k btu and runs it with a Honda 2000i. If caught in a hot area, we find an RV park with hookups! Happy Campers BobnRobin
I think I forgot to update but I’ll be in site 118 and will be coming only with my Australian Shepherd as Catherine and the kids are probably going to be going back to visit family in Louisiana along with my son who just returned from Japan/Korea. Looking forward to a quiet weekend.
Was interested in attending, but on Recreation.gov, all the sites in Aspen CG are marked as "Walk Up". So when we read down through the thread and see everyone with reservations, we have to wonder, "What are we missing?!". Any help here? OK, got a different result... It appears there are no reservation sites left for June 8/9, but since there are a bunch of walk-ups, so we can get up there early (7th?) and take a chance on getting a spot. We've driven further on longer odds! See you there.
You got it right. That indicates all the reserved sites are taken and only walk up sites will be avail... coming up on the Thursday the 7th the earlier the better or get there late the 6th. Friday gets busy with folks coming up from the valley. Also, keep an eye on the reservation site. Someone may cancel and open up a spot. Look forward to meeting you guys. The area is beautiful. They have potable water right in the campground so no need to haul water. Let me know if you have any questions.
Thought about coming up on the maiden voyage of our new 1475, but the link for "reservations", only shows walk up sites, there is no reservation ability. Can't afford to show up on a Friday night and find the place full. Enjoy, maybe we can catch the group next time.
I was up there last weekend and visited the Aspen Campground. I had a conversation with two very nice ladies at the check-in booth and they confirmed that many sites are left for walk-in campers on a "first come-first served" basis. My suggestion is, like Rob said, get up there Thursday evening or early Friday and get one of those non-reservable sites. It's a beautiful campground on spite of no hookups!
Don't miss out on a chance to share your new trailer and absorb a lot of info from other Lance owners! Come up a bit early (like in the previous posting) and get yourself a site for the weekend. It's a great place to "break in" your new trailer!
Rob, What's the chance of posting a list of attendees and their site number? I'm attempting to keep track of the sites and MIGHT be able to post a map of the campground with the names of the attendees by their sites. Thanks!
OK Everyone, if you are going to this “informal gathering” sound off with name and site number. Lew has kindly offered to put a list of attendees together. I’ll start, but just tag onto this thread so we get everyone... Rob & Jayne Monsipapa SITE 117 Arrive (3 dogs Dillion, Mason and Emma)
Go to this website that has a map of the other camps in the area. While its not with the group its not that far to drive over and spend the days and evenings. https://www.fs.usda.gov/recare...d=80835&actid=29 This is a list of the other nearby camps which are on the map. Sinkhole - Rim - Spillway - Mogollon - Crook In addition there are many areas where you can camp in a "Dispersed" area for free. Contact me if you want or need more information.
Site #110 Weds/Thurs June 6th and 7th We'll be in the Aliner....I am looking forward to meeting some Lance owners! I'm hoping to get my own Lance in the next couple of years. See you soon. Kris and Jack the Boxer
