Yes!  It is already time to start planning for the annual Easter Camping Weekend at Peninsula State Park in beautiful Door County!

March 30 through April 1, 2018
Peninsula State Park, Tennison Bay Campground

This weekend is a very loose, relaxed weekend.  We have developed a basic plan from prior years, but we are always open to new ideas.

We start arriving on Friday, anytime, and if you are the first to arrive, you are in charge of locating a group of campsites that are in the sun, dry, and then choosing the best one for yourself!  We camp in the only campground open, Tennison Bay, usually in the area past the winter water shed.  Outhouses will be open, no flushies or showers.  If you plan to use your water system, (we always do)  I suggest filling before you leave home.  The winter water at the park can be pretty orange and rusty.  The dump station will be closed.  Now that I have all the negatives out of the way, we usually have the park pretty much to ourselves!!  And no need to make reservations!

Friday night, we usually go out for dinner.  Sometimes to the Bayside Tavern in Fish Creek, or maybe pizza at the the Wild Tomato.  Always open to the group for final decision!

Saturday is your day to roam, hike, bike, shop, visit wineries, and purchase supplies for a Saturday night cookout.  Weather permitting!  We love to splurge and get steaks from the Main Street Market in Egg Harbor.  Pick up a side to share, an appetizer, and you are ready!  Oh, and don’t forget your beverages of choice.  If the weather is in the dumper, we shall decide alternative plans.

Sunday, your day again!  Some people stay another day, or leave late.  We usually leave by noon…..  Ed has to get home!

This weekend is a beautiful time to visit Door County without the crowds.  And please feel free to follow your own agenda.  If you want to eat at your trailer Friday night, or stay in, wear your jammies and read or knit on Saturday, that is what you do!

If you plan to attend, send me an email or give me a call, I don’t want the group to head out for dinner Friday night until we are all parked!  You can decide to attend at the last minute, cancel at the last minute, just let us know.  We don’t want anyone left out!

Camping season is almost here!
