Might be too small http://www.windsormountain.org/syp/facilities.html but I am visiting there on Monday.
Might be good for leaf peeping Shorty Jamboree 8)

Too small for porcfest http://www.glenbrook.org/ but maybe good for Shorty Jam in spring.

Benefits of the summer camp, as I see it:

We have the whole campground...no strangers to offend with late night parties.
We can set up sections for familites and sections for partiers.
We have a kitchen and can cook large meals for the group.
Kitchen equipment and utensils provided.
More buildings to be out of the rain, have gatherings, music, etc.
Be on a lake :)
More cabins available...makes it easier for people travelling by plane.
Cheaper for everyone.
It'll be more accessible, being in Southern NH.
More opportunities for town tours/other activities in Southern NH.

Downsides:
Have to pre-register people to pay for the camp.
Lots of people like Rogers.
Lloyd will grumble at us.
It would most likely have to be in early June or September.

Any other benefits/downsides?

Downsides
Camp may not have a pool.  I am sure some people would rather swim in a pool than lake.
Will not be able to influence random campers
Will not have a store that sells food/ice cream/soda and beer for when people are too drunk to drive
Depending on the camp, may have to use low quality roads
May have to clear land to make enough campsites
Will need to organize a massive clean up

RV sites?

I like the idea of a summer camp. Even without rv sites, onsite store, I think the benefits outweigh the costs.

Another difference might be campfires and meals. Summer camps don't always accomodate separate eating and burning stuff but are great at large communal fires and meals. That would be different but maybe an improvement. It also removes partyers from sleepers.

Upside ..... Keith and Stuff will not be able to annoy non-porcupines.
no store :(

No way would any of these places let us "clear land" ..... but they all have enough room for our tents .... or they are off the list. :)
We will have to not be messy. My idea of a good time is not partying for days and then cleaning for days. This will be a good test of the porcupine ethic.

All of the camps still on the list have multiple places to sleep ..... so we could have a total drunk area, family area, quiet reader/sleeper area .... all sorts of possibilities.
The one we were at yesterday would not have had room for really any RVes.

I'm sure we'll miss you, Dreepa.

Re:  cooking....the site we looked at had fire pits near all the cabins, alongside the lake, and at all sorts of nice places to cook or just have a fire.

If everbody cleans up there own mess every day, we won't need a massive clean up.

I think Porcs are hardy enough to swim in a lake.


Can keep supplies on hand for when you are drunk, remember the 6 P's.

You could pay some one to be sober and get stuff. You know free market at work.
