Event Description

This is the 10th annual Bus Chain Gang at Convict Springs. Don't let the name scare you, that is just something we thought up. Ten years ago Kevin and I was thinking FL needed more Bus camping. Kevin discovered Convict Springs and Kevin, myself and Jill went to check out Convict Springs before heading home after camping, and now ten years later here we are. 
Stay tuned for some upcoming info, we may have some fun with the Convict part of this.

Looking forward to another great time. 
Beautiful time of year, great weather (at least 1/2 the time) depending on where your traveling from. 

Group breakfast Saturday morning, come to the pavilion and start cooking to be ready from 9-10am. Emphasis on breakfast burritos. 
Saturday night pot luck, 6pm. 
Sunday morning many of us have breakfast at the campground restaurant.

Extra tidbits. 
1) For those not wanting or needing a site with electric or water you can pay the Primitive Fee of $20.00 a night per bus and pull in next to us, the pavilion, or anyone who is with the group and doesn't mind. 

2) You don't need to reserve, but it is recommended if you want electric and/or water. 

3) I think most electric sites now have 120v 30AMP outlets. It is wise to pick up an adapter (male 120v 30amp 3 wire to female 120v 20a 3 wire). 

4) The picnic pavilion we use for cooking and eating and the main fire pit is near sites 40 and 57. 

5) For the past 5 years or so we have a local who delivers a trailer of fire wood for $100.00 for use mainly at the main fire pit near the pavilion and donations usually come to right about the cost of the wood. (It's amazing how close it usually comes)"
