    2018 MO Campfire

    It’s official, the “2018 MO Campfire” is set for
    20 - 23 September 2018 at “Bass River Resort” in Steelville, MO

    Couple changes this year, as we looking to set up down in the family area of the campground. It’s heavily wooded so lots of shade. Plus it’s not along the main entrance and exit road (little to no dust).

    We’ll pretty much stick with what’s been working. Friday night, Chili pot luck. Everyone bring a can of their favorite chili, which we’ll prepare in one big pot. Cheese, chips, dips and whatever else we come up with should be there. Alcohol, goes without saying, BYOB or scrounge off your buddy.

    Saturday morning we’ll do breakfast. Biscuits, gravy, eggs, potatoes, and sausage galore.

    Creek dip, we play by ear, but I think there’s always enough beer to overcome even the coldest of water.

    Float trip will also be by ear. It’s never been a problem to get scheduled so recommend waiting until you’re there to make reservations. That way everyone’s on the same sheet of music.

    Here’s the map of Bass River Resort. (didn't load, check out their website). We'll be hanging in the Shady Bend Family Area. Take a look, and don’t get discouraged about how spread out it looks to be. There’s plenty of space to move around. I’ve got the non-elec site 526 reserved for Joyce and me. Right next door, one side is more non-elec’s, the other side is electric/water. I don't know how many can set up per site, but like I said, there's plenty of room. In the past we had at least six on one elec site. Don't think you be able to sneak 6 on these, but we won't know until we try it. Again, do it by ear.

    Information on the place can be had at https://www.bassresort.com/
    2018 prices are: (BTW) I haven't seen any specials like they did last year, bummer.

    Adult (Fri - Sat) $12.00 p/person/night, $12.79 w/tax
    Adult (Sun - Thurs) $10.50 p/person/night, $11.19 w/tax
    If you are on an electric site you will have an additional elec charge in addition to the per night camping. This is per site, not per person

    (Fri - Sat) Electric/water $15.00 per/site/night, $16.00 w/tax
    (Sun-Thurs) $14.00 per/site/night, $14.92 w/tax


    Hope to see y’ll there

    We hope to make it again. Will probably decide at the last moment and will just make do with what ever is available. Last year we left MO and headed on north to the UP of MI to visit our daughter, haven't finalized our plans for this summer yet.

    Maybe by September we can ride up together. Joyce and I are down here in the Villages, FL and considering moving down permanently.

    I have booked the Elec/Water Site #525. It's reserved from 9/20 thru 9/23.
    This is next to Randy's (RJ-97) site. Anyone wanting to share the Electric
    cost just let me know. The $16/night can be divided by several campers.
    Your camping fees will still apply. Here is a link to the campground map.

    When making my reservation this morning I asked about the $15 discount
    normally emailed out early in the year, no such luck this season.
