15 Easter Bonnett loads of fun 4/29/14
A big thank you to those who took part in the 3rd Easter bonnet contest at space 201 in the 2nd meadow where fun in a norm.... We had a fantastic winner, Mike for the 2nd time. There was 50 dollars up for grabs between the contest and the egg hunt. We had a fantastic pot luck dinner after the hunt with food that was out of this world thanks Gregg for the baked beans and mac and cheese and those sticky buns, well what can I say about them, so tasty. Thanks to our new neighbors in space 203 for hosting the cocktail party the punch was excellent I think, after 3 im not sure of anything. Thanks again to Chaz and Jim for making this place possible, it is truly a dream come true.

25 Were you at Senior Weekend in June of last year? 5/23/14

I'm looking for a particular nice guy I met last year. If I remember right you're from somewhere in the Kansas City area and work in your family run florist business. We both had rooms in the dormitory and we met one of the mornings. You were sitting outside at the picnic table having coffee. You offered me some coffee and we chatted for a while. I unfortunately had to leave and couldn't stay longer but enjoyed our conversation. If you are coming back this year I'd love to meet up with you again. Here's hoping you see this and respond favorably.

May come Visit June 6-8

Hey, my bf and I visited the campground a few years ago with a group of friends. We had fun but didn't really mingle outside of our circle. We may come by ourselves during 20's weekend but was curious what the scene is like. Is that a busy weekend? Are there things to do other than the pool/hottub?


Coming This Weekend 6/1/14

First timer, planning on coming up this weekend (June 6 - 8). More than a bit anxious. Single, blk guy here. Always wanted to just be outside nude with sun on my skin. But how is the crowd? Will I feel welcome? Any advice?

31 One night visit 6/3/14

My partner and I will be staying overnight Monday, June 9th, and leaving late afternoon on June 10th. We want to spend lots of time by the pool and hot tub. Any other suggestions for our short stay?

Hey guys! I've got my site reserved and am counting down the days until the 4th of July weekend. This will be my first visit and I look forward to meeting some great new friends. If there's anything a first timer like me should know to prepare or to bring with, other than the regular camping gear, I'd appreciate any suggestions. I want to experience all that there is to offer while on my much needed vacation :-) Cheers Fellas!

38 Thanks, guys! 7/8/14

I had a great first visit to CCC, and I enjoyed meeting all of you. What a great group of men. If I headed out too early on Tuesday to say good-bye, I am sorry we missed each other! If ever of you make it to Dallas, I would love to see you!

50 Had a fabulous time!  

Hi everyone! My partner and I "John" sure had a fabulous time during "Senior Week." It was our first time to be there but we realize now what a special place it is! We stayed at the main lodge. Remember us? We were known as the bug collectors. LOL! We made many friends, and felt safe and at home. The weather was wonderful as well as the food at the cafe. We tried most of everything on the menu but our favorites were the spaghetti and meatballs, barbecue chicken, mexican burrito which we hope will get added "permanently to the menu" and the turtle pie. It was outstanding! A special thanks to our friends Chaz, Jim, Lauren and the rest of our friends for making us feel welcomed. The hot tub and the large swimming pool were some great places to hang out. We got to stay a couple of extra days just so we could see what the dance would be like. It was so much fun! DO cowboy played some awesome music and even let us request some of our favorite tunes! So if you are reading !
this and thinking to yourself if you should go, my answer would be definitely positively yes! We will be back again next year! Senior week rocks! I am only 34 years old and it sure was a blast! Thank you all so much! PS: Did you find our letter, Chaz?

'John and Tim we were very happy to have you stay with us for your first time and enjoy it as you did. I learned a bit about the critters here too.. thanks for that info.. and YES.. we did get your coffee filter note..and have it posted at the store, thank you and we look forward to your visit next year! Chaz'
