For the month of June we are headed to Mistletoe State Park, located on 71,100-acre Clarks Hill Lake near Augusta.

Our campsite sits right on the lake and has picnic tables, running water, and a pit toilet. The park has a nice sandy beach, shaded trails, and fantastic large-mouth bass fishing.

The agenda as always is simple and laid-back...Friday we will setup camp (feel free to arrive anytime after 1pm), cook a simple dinner and relax around a glowing campfire.
Saturday it is breakfast, a morning activities (ie, short hike), lunch and the afternoon is open to swimming, sunning on the beach, kayaking, etc. We will round out the day with a low country shrimp boil, another homemade dessert, and a campfire.  Sunday it is a light breakfast and then pack for home.

As with all of my trips, everyone pitches in to help cook and clean up afterwards.  To keep us organized, I will be e-mailing out a sign-up list for meals.  If you have a specific meal you would prefer to cook or clean-up for, please let me know in the notes section when you register for the trip.

*PLEASE NOTE: expect late nights carousing around the campfire, a little dog slobber, and an awesome weekend!
