All the local hotspots!

View SoCal Group Camping in a larger map

Take a look at my SoCal campsite Google Map and perhaps we can think about where future trips ought to be held?

New lease on life

I started this blog many years ago when I first encountered group camping with kids at the Growing Place.

Our trip this last weekend to Leo Carillo was so great and so rewrding that I decided to change the name of this blog and contiue to post my experiences and give the Hedgerow community a place in the history of Southern California Group Camping fun!

Leo Carillo is truly a great spot, and as Beth will let everyone know I have an exisiting reservation for Friday and Saturday nights, May 10 and 11th, 2014.

But we should not stop there, there are a number of great group sites in the LA area, the one I have my eye on, but have never been to is:

Malibu Creek Cirlce X Ranch

Looks pretty sweet, I like the way it seems to be at the end of the line.

But I also know that looks can be deceiving. Patrick suggested we take a scout up there sometime and see for ourselves and see if meets the Leo Carillo mark or perhaps even excels past it! Malibu Creek is the closest State Park Group Site that I know of.

I am too tired to do much else, but lets say:

  • Cuts and Bruises: 4
  • Broken limbs: 0
  • Nighttime departures: 1

A very respectible first outing.

Feel free to make any comments about how I can make this blog more useful and interesting for our future adventures.
