Rocket Camp Out Parking Change

Mission Control to Rocket Campers -


Due to heavy snow and poorly planned plowing, the amount of available parking at the Izaac Walton Lodge has been greatly reduced from its usual small amount to basically none. 


Therefore, if you are planning on parking for more than 5 minutes, please

park at the Bush Lake Beach parking lot. 

On Bush Lake Road, continue one quarter mile (.25 mile) south past the turn on Mt. Curve Road.  The Beach will be on your right (west). 


There is a small parking lot immediately to the left just past the parking lot gate house.  We will run a shuttle service from this lot to the Lodge from about 8:45 am to 9:45 am.   Look for one of our Senior Scouts with a sign for the shuttle.  There is no fee or permit required to park at the beach this time of year. 


If you are only dropping off or picking up a scout it is O.K. to go directly to the Lodge.   Remember that the former Izaac Walton Road no longer exists.  You must turn off of Bush lake Road on Mt. Curve road; take a left turn on Lakeview at the "T", and then a right turn in the new little cul-de-sac to get onto the little bit of remaining Izaac Walton Road.  The Lodge is at the end of Izaac Walton ... can't miss it because you have nowhere else to go.


Please DRIVE SLOWLY in this neighborhood ... the residents are a little sensitive since losing their road.


Please limit the time you park at the lodge ... take the shuttle!


Please bring big rockets and plan for a wild time thanks to our newly constructed launch system!


See you Saturday!


Roger, Houston ... over and out.
