OK, here are the locations of those that have responded SO FAR! If needed, I can add a printed list of sites and names, but for now it's just a updateable map...

I live in Payson AZ . Just drove my Jeep up to woods canyon and willow lake and drove the 300 rim road yesterday. Everything is pretty dry . Here’s what’s happening locally http://www.paysonroundup.com/n...2b-5a7c6a793fe5.html Woods canyon and willow lakes area remains open. Enforcement is strict on fire restrictions.

Thanks to Galvanizd for posting this. We have found that during fire restriction times we were still able to use our portable fire pit with lava rock and propane. Not sure if that will be allowed given the extreme dry conditions right now. Hope for rain before June 6-12 rolls around. Really looking forward to meeting everyone! We would like to plan a nightly happy hour at 5:30pm, at out site 117. This gives everyone time to eat then come relax for an hour or two with their favorite beverage.

Wow, I’m sitting here on the last night of the Woods Canyon Lake trip and thinking I don’t want to go back the the valley. Met some truly great people, laughed a lot, got a lot of photos to be posed here. Thanks to everyone that made the trip. Without all of you the memories wouldn’t be the same. We had a few windy days but the temps at night were great and not too hot during the day. Loved, loved, loved the 6pm happy hour! What a great time. I can now put another birthday in the logbook as...

I just got off of the phone with the lady in charge of campgrounds on the rim . I was moving Sunday night over to Black Canyon rim campground for my wife to hopefully see the wild horse herd that lives near there . She called to let me know that its now closed and was able to get me into another campground for Sunday . Anyway I asked about Aspen campground and she said they do not foresee having to close it . There is currently no fires threatening that area .

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!!

It’s usually about 10 degrees cooler than Payson and the temps at Woods Canyon swing about 30 degrees. The forecast as of today calls for low to mid 80’s during the day and the 50’s at night so bring long pants and long sleeve shirts. We always have jackets. If it rains the temps will drop another 10-15 degrees. rob

FYI there is a significant gain in elevation 2610 ft. between Payson at 4890 ft. and Aspen Camp at 7500 ft. You will know that as you chug up that last hill to reach the top of the rim. It will be a lot cooler than Yuma Sgt.

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.

Nice photos Gene.... usually there is a lot more snow than that, I hope they get a lot more before winter closes out or else it will be bone dry come June!

The store at the lake has all kinds of fishing supplies. It’s not the biggest but has a lot of the most commonly used items there... 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...

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
Comment

Re: Informal Lance Get Together at Woods Canyon Lake AZ "Aspen Campground" - June 2018

Rob Monsipapa ·
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 😀

Rob Monsipapa ·
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...

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!

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....

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
