Lake Rathbun 2022
« on: March 26, 2022, 10:33:20 AM »
Hi everybody!

Has anybody started looking at June yet? It will be here before you know it.

June 23rd - June 26th could be doable for me and maybe also some friends & family.

How many people are you planning on bringing, more than one boat?
We are kind of sitting on the fence, have a lot of things going on this year, but that weekend is out for us

Are you going to put a boat behind the RV?   We have a lot going on this year with farmhouse remodel and an upcoming move.    Maybe make a day or two trip of it, pick a date, we'll see what happens.

Sounds like Fathers Day weekend is looking like the best option for us - June 17th - 19th.

How does that sound for everyone else?

so we will be at Rathbun Lake Marina again
they do not take reservations for non holiday weekends so its first come.
this should be ok for us arriving thursday, if anyone wants to tent camp in an RV spot by us we could prob help arrange that, though the tent spots are nice as well.
not really an agenda at this point, normally run the lake, then hang out (float or beach) on friday and sat. and a twilight cruise on sat for sure.

Connie and I have always looked forward to Rathbun, so we are trying to at least make a Friday-Sunday trip of it.   Not sure if tent camping with Charlie (90lb GSD) makes any sense, so will try to have RV ready if you snag a spot for us.  Otherwise I'm going to call about the hotel on site.

I talked to Rathbun folks today, got a pet friendly hotel room for Friday and Saturday night.  Found out they opened up the new RV area, and have 28 spots non reservable.   More importantly, they told me they can't seasonal rent anymore out as they are at capacity (seasonal lease) per CoE rules.   It won't be a long Wed-Sun like we normally do, but with all that's going on, we need a little break.   Hope to see some of you on the lake.

I know I could probably look this up,.. but, just where is this place, sounds like it would be fun.  How far from twin cities? From the past posts it looks like a nice little gathering. Camping?

It?s this one here, sorry for the delay

It?s about a 5 Hour Dr. for us.
They have plenty of tent camping as well as a lot of RV spots. One of the reasons we switched to the marina is because we can slip the boats, it used to be at the state campground, there you had to retrieve your boat every day.
