  • 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.

                  https://www.bassresort.com/camping/campground-map.html

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

                        I am new to the forum and I'm from Missouri. Was thinking about going to this and had some questions.
                        How many people usually attend this event ?
                        What is the average of attendees ?
                        Does it start Thursday night or Friday night?

                          Welcome to the forum Jimbo. I’m from the other side of the state. Glad to
                          hear you may join us. Hard to tell how many will show up but it should be
                          15-25. Several retired folks start their trip earlier in the week. There is
                          plenty of room no matter when you arrive. I plan to get there Thursday.

                            Randy ... will your plans on moving to FL affect this event??

                              It shouldn't impact it much at all. We plan to be there regardless. The only thing is I can't promise to supply the firewood. Marty should be showing up too so I might possibly convince her to pack in the firewood.
                              Plus the week before is the Ill M&G so I will probably attend that while Joyce visits family.
