Would like to if I can.  Do you want to pin a spot on a map so we can find you?

Since this is not a direct club event, I moved it to the member event.

I'll see about bringing some firewood. Any other suggestions besides the beer?

It's been awhile since I went there, are we going to access areas via the park entrance requiring the entry fee? Or another area?
Title: Re:
Post by: Azfronty99 on March 13, 2015, 02:53:44 PM
We are going in the back way on a trail that leads to the water. No fees since we aren't entering the park

If you stay upstream quite a bit (up near Humbug Creek), you'll be OK, but if you go near the actual lake portion, they can shake you down for the fee.  It probably wouldn't happen, but they can.

EDIT:  The turnoff for Humbug Creek is shortly after the large RV Parking / Staging area that some refer to as the airstrip staging area (because back in the day it was used as a small airstrip).

Yea the area im going to is just before that rv area. Its right before the hill to the right . You take that trail by staying to the left for about half mile or so

Still trying to figure out where this is actually going to be.  Headed to a Suns game but might be able to drop by later.  Could someone drop a pin on a google map and share it?

Just a heads up, in order to put coordinates into google you must add the West, it tried to pin it in China.  So 33.939331 N 112.314316 W will search correctly.

Post by: Hammer (Avi) on March 13, 2015, 05:35:16 PM
Ill head over after the suns game, will throw a couple extra chairs and wood in the trunk as well.

Yes, the end spot that Avi linked to is technically in the Lake Pleasant Regional Park.  You probably won't get hassled, but they could if they wanted to.

Here is a link to the official map with the park boundaries highlighted in in green:

I don't know what the fines are for non-compliance, but IMHO, it's worth the $6 entrance fee not to get hassled.

Had a great time last nit. Thank you Jeff for making this happen. Left my house at 930pm and didn't arrive till 1130pm. I only live 20 miles from the lake, so lets just say I don't get along with trying to find trails in the dark. I really enjoyed hanging out and tipping a few back. Thanks guys and gals. So I was the first one to leave. 230am was my calling. I was so wide awake while at the lake. Once I hit the main road boy did it hit me. Got home at 330am and crashed. Wife left for work at 730am and the kids woke up at 8am. Im gonna need a nap when the little ones nap so I can make it through work tonight.

Looks like a good day spot too, we'll have to try it out again with more day light.
