Big Ridge SP BLUEGRASS NIGHT! 2014

Post  chuck on Tue Jun 03, 2014 12:04 am

Well..  I have decided to do the Big Ridge Bluegrass Night again..  this years it's Friday night Aug 15th. Last year I had decided to not return to Big Ridge because I didn't like my campsite in 2012 and 2013..  but I think the festival event and the fishing is not worth missing.  Plus Big Ridge is very close to home, for me.

The last two years I camped down near the lake.. and to be honest.. the sites are just not kept up well in that area.  And even though they are close to the water..  I think the best fishing spots are in other sections of the park,.. and I end up driving to fish anyway.   So I'm gonna camp up on the top of the ridge..  these sites are newer and a little cleaner. (I have camped in the upper area before).  I will be in site #51, Friday and Saturday nights.

Hope some of you can join me!  Make your reservations now!

Last year.. at the fest:

Thought I would refresh this.. Anyone going? I have campsite reservations.. But I might cancel if nobody else is attending. I can always just drive up that Friday for the music.

I'm not really a bluegrass fan and we'll be at NT. I hope you get someone else to go with you.

On another note, I saw a bad, bad review of the park on rv.net just the other day. They said they were going to try Cove Lake next, but I haven't read their review on there. Basically, they said the sites were trashy, there was little to no security and drunks ruled.
