Cabin #20 that was 2 spots away from our cabin was bigger than ours and it had a second floor outdoor balcony which the others did not. I cant say how different inside it was but the cabin itself was definitely bigger than the rest

I’ve only camped @ Red Bridge in my trailer a couple of times and really enjoyed it. Going to try a cabin next time out. Been looking at the topo maps and there are still lots of interesting valley roads to enjoy in the area.

Mick, are you planning to get a cabin this time, or sleep in the trailer? The cabin site we had in June was #17. Not the largest, but big enough.

Cabin #20 is new and has a large room upstairs with a porch. Could fit an XL gathering. Found some pictures on it being built while poking around the web for things of intertest in this area.
Something to keep an eye on for next year.

Allegany State Park in NY has a few interesting but not to challenging long valley roads to the north of Red Bridge according to Google maps..

Mick, if you're making the reservation & it's still on for the 6th of September, I'll be there. Date can be somewhat flexible, but that was the last one you posted earlier, IIRC.

I have a permission slip from ‘she who must be obeyed’ that allows me to be in Red Bridge on September 6-9.
Guess I should make some arrangements.
