    Default Labor Day Weekend 2016 Gathering @ Lake Thurmond

    Dates: Friday September 2nd thru Monday Sept 5th
    Location: Hickory Knob State Park in SC just west of McCormick, SC on Strom Thurmond/Clarks Hill Lake bordering SC/GA.
    Lake is 70,000 acres, 1200 miles of shoreline, 3rd largest man made east of the Mississippi.
    Hickory Knob has 70 lodge/motel type rooms and 18 one bedroom cabins, full service restaurant on site for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Only one or two other restaurants on water.
    Boat ramp and and 2 separate docks within walking distance of lodge, plenty of other marinas available for gas.

    At the moment, only 6 lodge rooms are available right for Fri thru Monday and 9 lodge rooms available Sat thru Mon and one 2 bedroom cabin, but typically more will become available within 15-30 days of labor day due to cancellations. I will try to monitor availability until then.

    Reservation Page Select "cabins or lodgings" in drop down box for type of campsite and choose date.

    If I was back in SC I would be signed up at looking for a couple of empty seats, but I won't be back until Sept 20.

    Nice! Looks like the weather held (or cleared up). We were down in the Smokies with some friends from school. Whatever Hermine was doing stayed east of us.
