RE: Hammock Camping Trail Fest
MessageYes, Rick, Trailfest is a one-day (Apr 12) social event sponsered by the town for AT hikers. The trail runs right through town! It's really just a Spring celabration featuring area musicians--playing and dancing on the lawn, etc. Some vendors will be present. Mostly a mountain town beer bust! Last year they had about 200-300 people, mostly locals. There is a web site: www.trailfest.netI am doing a 20 mi hike on the trail reaching Hot Springs Sat am (12 Apr). That commerical campground you found is in town and very convenient--lots of spaces, but you probably should make reservations. The hot springs are commerical and reservations are definately required if interested--they use outdoor hot tubs w/ hot water, so it's not what you'd expect. I'll be staying in town Sat pm--would be great to see ya there...Ed-----Original Message-----Hey Ed,

Subject: Hammock Camping Trail Fest
I saw on your site that you intend to be at Hot Springs for Trail
Fest on the weekend prior to Easter weekend. I will be driving from
Dayton to the FL panhandle that weekend with my pop-up camper and
family. it only takes me a couple hours out of my way to stop.
How big is the event? Any hope of getting a camping spot in town for
Friday eve?? I did find one commercial campgroud, but have not
called them. I think it was the hot springs campground??
