Chenango Valley State Park is an ice age wonder. Its two kettle lakes, Lily and Chenango, were created when the last glacier retreated and left behind huge chunks of buried ice which melted to form the lakes and bog. Birdwatchers may glimpse woodpeckers, nut hatches, warblers and thrushes along woodland trails and herons, ducks and kingfishers lakeside. Fishermen will find trout, bass, perch and bullhead in Chenango Lake. Campers can choose from among 184 campsites and 24 cabins and golfers will appreciate the 18-hole Chenango Valley State Park*Golf Course*(pro shop can be reached by calling: 607-648-9700).

TO MAKE RESERVATIONS CALL 1-800-456-2267

Campground phone number is 607-648-5251.

Campground is just outside Binghamton, NY in Chenango Forks, NY. It is 1 hour from Corning or Ithaca, and 1 ½ hours from Cooperstown (National Baseball Hall of Fame).

Lots of nice upstate NY views to see. This is a very nice State Park with lots of Trails, Lakes and peaceful tranquility. Come and enjoy the outdoors with fellow FROGS.

*************************************
Registration Opens October 15, 2021 - you can call the campground to reserve or reserve through Reserve America or through the Parks.ny.gov website.

We are all located on the Chipmunk loop site 91-150

Once you reserve, please Email Ron & Shirley McLaughlin (rmac04401) to tell us how many people you have attending, names of attendees, what site, Forest River Product Owned, and date of arrival and departure. Email is rmac04401@yahoo.com
**************************************

The itinerary is casual, Times of gatherings will be determined as we get closer.

All gatherings will be behind sites 114-116

Tentative Itinerary

Friday night – Meet and greet – potluck finger foods and dessert

Saturday - Potluck Breakfast
Saturday - Roundtable Discussion
Saturday – On your own to explore park and surrounding areas
Saturday- Camper crawl
Saturday night – Potluck

Sunday Morning - Last Gathering – Breakfast Potluck to visit and say Goodbyes.

The camper crawl is always a big hit so don't miss this activity.

This will be our 5th year (6th if not for COVID). We do not have sites set aside for us; it is first come, first serve, so reserve early. The host will hopefully have site #114 again.

Once we hit the 30 sites, the rally will be closed, even if there are sites available at the campground. Logistically we can only handle 30 sites. If the rally is full, email Ron & Shirley to get put on the waiting list.

Thanks

Anyone friends with Coney, you may want to reach out to him. I just spoke with him, he's been in hospital past 2 months. Moving him to a rehab today, but he's had a rough summer. Only got to use his new camper 3 nights before things went very bad for him.

Yep NYS does this silly thing where you can’t book more than 9 months in advance. So if you wanted to go in July 12 you could book today as the starting date then extend out.

Bye the way Coney I hope you are doing better. Heard from NJKris that you had a rough summer.

Something is wrong. Doesn't allow you to reserve ANY site after July 12, 2022. I think website is only searchable for reservations 9 months out. Those who have already booked probably called.

9 months is correct to the day...LOL to the minute (0900 EST). Only two sites are booked so far (108 & 109), but those folks are arriving early (before 15 Jul 22), but can still not book for the Rally until Friday. Ron correct me if I'm wrong.
BTW" Calling has nothing to do with it.
