  • All campsites have water, sewer and 30 amp electric. 50 amp available if needed. ( site specific)
  • Please make your reservation before April 27 if possible as we need to release unused campsites back to the camp. You can still reserve after April 27th however you may not get a site next to the group.
  • Please post a reply here if you make your reservation with your dates, camper year/model, first names of those attending so we can update the attendee list.
Cost: $31/night (Back in site) - $33/night (Pull through site) - See CG map below for sites.
Camp Check In: Since we are in a group, we can check in early, must be past 9:30am Friday. Check out: Sunday at 1:00pm
Campground only accepts checks or cash. Campground requires 1 night pre-paid mailed in advance to hold reservation. Make checks payable to River Trail Campground and mail to the campground address above.

Sunline Club Campsites
We have selected overnight camping area A and will fill sites 11 to 21 first. Members JohnB in site 18 and vanhakke in site 13 have reserved opposing sites to start a green space behind the campers. This green space behind the campers will serve as our group site, picnic tables and canopies. You are welcome to select sites on either side of sites 18 and 13 as we start to fill this area and increase our group green space.

Notes: The campground has requested for back in sites to only back in on pad. They want to avoid lawn damage, soft spring soil issues pulling in the opposite direction off the pad etc. Pull through sites can come in the opposite direction, just hookups are on the opposite side of your camper.

Site 13 Is Nailed Down

Hi, Everybody,

Well, finally got around to making it official with Carol at River Trail. We are reserved on site 13 for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 16, 17 and 18. Geez, the way this Michigan weather is, I think we'd just as soon be leaving today (if it was May, yes?). For the record, Carol said it is fine for the moderators to call and do a sign-up list check from time to time.

Hurry up Spring !!

Dennis & Marie

Joan,

That is Great!! I updated the sign up.

Yes, spring cannot come quick enough...

Lake Superior, that is one large body of water that I am still in awe of when ever I pass it by driving along the Trans Canada. Really pretty area anywhere around it.

On your nights of stay, are you Fri & Sat night or Fri, Sat and Sun night? Making sure I have the signup list right.

Thanks

John

Hey, Joan,
Good that you're making it this year. Haven't seen you since your trip to the "secret place". We'll have lots of catching up to do, and stories to tell.

Update on River Trails

Hello, Everyone:

Wednesday morning I checked in with Carol at River Trails. Everything is fine on their end. Initially, I had her set aside all the sites 11 thru 30. Based on my conversation with her this morning, she is releasing sites 21 thru 30, which still holds open 4 sites for SOC. Carol said that she will fill the adjoining sites starting at 30, and counting down. That way, if there are last minute additions to our group, they can use sites near the 21 end, near the rest of us. She and I confirmed that we have 7 sign-ups so far. Carol is OK with holding the remaining 4 until the arrival date. If she has any concerns, she said she will call me. Otherwise, we'll show up on May 16th.

Looking forward after this hard winter, eh ?

Dennis
