    wilddav, this is a great question!
    this will also be my first ArkGeo Annual Event, and I plan to bring a tent as well!
    i have a camper, but i plan to cache on the way to Petit Jean and dont want the extra "baggage", ie: camper!

    id like to stay with (on site) everyone else, in the group camp area, as stated in the GC listing!

    i look forward to this event and also to this thread, as wilddav and I get hints and help from you seasoned ArkGeo campers!

    thanks for the help, I know will come eventually!

    Last year we just all found a level spot in group camping area. Some snored (I won't mention her name) and some made other weird noises, but all in all it was fun. 2ter only really got scared one time when the raccoon tried to invade camp, but he didn't stay long. Last year there wasn't electricity, but I do not know about this year. I wouldn't imagine one need to bring a generator though as I'm sure the campers in close proximity really won't like the noise as your generator pipes cold air-conditioned air into your tent (unless you pipe some to our tents too!) We had a great time last year and I hope, hope, hope I can get off to attend this year as well. Any other questions just ask.

    Last year it was cool and I needed more blankets not a fan. It had cooled off nice in the evening. Hopefully we will have just as good weather this year.

    Out Boy Scout troop has stayed in this group site before. It is one of the nicest ones I've seen. It is on the side of a hill (just across the creek from the large pavilion). It has several tent platforms spread out across the site. I honestly can't remember if each platform had its own electricity. There is enough room for 2 small tents or 1 large one on each platform. At the top of the hill is a nice heated & cooled bathroom/shower facility. I know there is electricity there.

    I may try to break away and camp this year too. I might have a hard time getting my wife to agree to sleeping on the ground but I know the kids would love it. When I go to deer camp with some friends of mine we use a percolator pot on the propane camp stove to make coffee in. It don't get much better than that!
