Topic: Shenandoah River - Third weekend in June
That's what I'm thinking. If you need to put in your vacation requests at the beginning of the year, I am intending on having a river jam at the same campground as last year on the third weekend in June. Thursday June 14 to Sunday June 17.
I haven't contacted the campground yet, but I don't see how it will be a problem. Last year the prices were very reasonable. There is a quiet hours restriction, but last year we were able to get a site waaaaaaaay down at the end and were lucky enough to have noisy neighbors.
The campground web page is: http://www.lowwaterbridgecampground.com/
It is right on the Shenandoah River in Bentonville, Virginia. You can either launch right from the campground and float down, or there are some floats that wind up right at the campground (with a short portage around a the campground's eponymous feature). There are many nearby outfitters, including one within wading distance if the water is low. Fishing is mostly for smallmouth bass and bluegills. Or it's scenic enough to forego fishing for those who aren't so inclined.
Please give an indication if you are interested and a rough likelihood of your attendance. For example: Zurf, 50% likely, 4 people. Something like that. It's all very fluid, and none of it is a promise until you get there, but it helps to be able to figure how many sites we'll need as there are limits to how many are permitted to camp on a site. I'll give a call to the campground in February or so.
