    Re: Blackwater Falls State Park campout Oct.18-20,2018

    Well big changes 4 me! Long story why I got my new rogue a year early but actually it will work out better 4 me in the long run... we love it! It has affected my lifestyle dramatically! If u want to know why I got my car a year early u have to come to this campout! haha! I am, u guessed it....off work again....rotator cuff surgery..muscle was ripped right thru..gonna be a bit of a haul to heal but I will be ok..i refuse to give up my 1st love ..kayaking and I needed a more stable shoulder to continue with it..only riding on trails when I can get back on my bike..believe it or not 3 days before I got my car I almost got hit again at the same dangerous corner on my way into work! so I decided to only ride on trails from here on in...don't need more hits!

    So look 4 my dark gray Nissan rogue at Blackwater! may have a purple and white tandem kayak up top..think u guys will spot me if I bring it! haha!!

    I have never been to Blackwater SP, but I am interested in this camp out. I will be needing an October camp out, that is not three states away. So, please enlighten me! Do I need to make reservations, or is that even possible? What area of the campground (site #'s) are the rest of you planning to use?

    Any other info would be appreciated!

    Been there the last 2 years in a row..sept the 1st time then Oct last year and Oct this year..LOVE this area! I never made reservations either year because I arrive on thur but if u arrive on fri u may want to make a reservation..the campground is very walkable...if u hear a bike just go ask them if they r with our small group..i will have an Ontario plated dark gray Nissan Rogue..if peeps need to throw boots and jackets in my car then so be it.. last year a change of shoes for the hike we did would have come in handy...I am hiking Dolly Sods on the Friday this time..if u have never been there its awesome! Sat for the ride and sun for some if not leaving.. I have to leave on Sun as it is a grueling drive back home..will get a waterfall ride together for the Sat.. hope our weather is as great as it was last year! NO rain all week and I started at Hocking Hills state park for 3 nights!

    I was considering going last year and called Blackwater to see about making reservations. They told me they do NOT take reservations at that time of the year for the park. It's first come, first served.

    This may have changed, but that was the scoop last year.

    If my chronic pain is under control (2 failed back surgery's . . . long story) I will be there! Do you have room for a 7' X 9' tent, that is not sleeping down hill? LOL!

    U will prolly be sharing with 3Sportbiker at HHills and Blackwater does not allow sharing..we found out last year when Jim and me shared a site at Blackwater..they let us keep our tents on the same site for then but told us it was not really allowed. So we save at HHills in the least..BTW Blackwater is so walkable that it is easy to find anybody there..my dark rogue with Ontario plates and 2 dogs will stand out...
