Heads up Tearstock 2016 group area campers

monamona Posts: 110Member
Construction has begun on the new campground at Atwood. For those whose sites are in areas G2, G3, and the outside loop of G4 that do not border the main road, and had shade from trees last year....will not have shade this year, as all of those trees have been cut down. 

Got quite a shock when I drove up to check out my site this morning!

    No pics. I should have though. Aforementioned areas have been clear cut. No trees at all.
    I will be there in the near future and will take picks. The new campground is supposed to  be done for 2017.

    We are thinking if going but all the group areas are sold out however there is still overflow sites available in the B area. Is it still worth coming if not able to camp in the group area? We have never been to this campground so we are not sure what to expect as far as camp sites and how far it is from the group area.

    If you get on Bing Maps, then zoom in to Atwood Lake, click on Birds Eye you can see real clear images of the park and campsites. The group area is only a 2-3 minute drive from area B.

    :cry: Sad all the trees are gone. The permanent rv sites are being renovated in late summer they are temporarily moving to where the trees were. I guess when this is all done tearstock event will have more sites available in that area. 

    wanderlust the overflow site is nice it has Trees, showers, flush toilets & is close to the camp store I would be surprised if you get some visitors hang around your shaded site.

    Seeing as though Pleasant Valley is so close to the park, could someone from the factory stop in at the park once in a while and take some pictures then post them so everyone can see what goin' on?

    Pretty much ALL the staff are there at one point or other (executives, factory workers and even their families). They host the first night dinner, put on the movie night, take tons of photos of the campers, put on the award show, etc.  Usually a couple board members (if not LG/PV staff) posts photos for the rest of us who can't make it...I made it in 2014, not 2015, and won't make it this year.  Hope to make it in 2017.

    Yes, we know about what all goes on DURING Tearstock, we've been there the last two years, I was suggesting that somebody could stop in there to see what changes are being done NOW, with all the tree cutting and all, so that those who will be there this year will know what to expect when they arrive. We won't be able to make it this year, but I'm still curious as to what changes are being made to the group area.

    In reference to Tearstock, does it cost extra to stay over Saturday evening?

    Yes. You pay at the gate.

    For those looking for more shady sites - this makes the "Overflow" camp site area even more appealing....
