Come join the crew as we venture into the the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  We will meet at 12:00pm and 5:00pm in Roseville, leave at 12:15pm and 5:15pm and make our way to Collins Lake Resort off hwy 20.

It'll be a 2 night stay arriving on July 17th(FRI), and returning July 19th(SUN).

Coin operated showers (quarter per minute) and a general store will be available in the entrance to the camping resort (about 1/2 mile from our campsite), and it is a pet friendly environment (however, your pet should be kept on a leash).

We have the group site this year, so we all get to stay in the same campsite (there are no limitations on tents; however, single tents to accommodate one person are highly discouraged for the sake of space for everyone else). Cars that will be part of the carpool will park for Free. Additional parking lot available as well for $13 per night. So carpooling is highly encouraged!! 

We will designate an area as the HANGOUT area where we all chill by the fire, roast smores, play games like Twister, Phase 10, and drink alcohol, using the beer-bong of course :P. The maximum attendance is 50, so it's a first come, first serve basis. :)

Small personal watercraft EXCEPT Jet Ski's are allowed on Collins lake (kayaks, paddle boards, Boats, etc...), so if you have one, feel free to bring it. We will cover the parking fee for anyone who is willing to bring their boat for that weekend. If members bring their boats and you would like to enjoy it as well, please make sure to bring $10 to help the owner cover their gas, maintenance, etc...

Everyone will be responsible for their own food, so feel free to hit someone up to share food and stay in their tent if you don't have one.

We have the Upper Medow area off of road 6 reserved. Remember to pack "light n' tight" to save room for carpools.
