2022 OHio Coleman Gathering Aug 19-21

Mark your calendars for the OHIO Gathering at Kokosing Valley Camp and Canoe in Millwood, Ohio
August 19-21, 2022

http://kokosingvalley.com

The OHio Gathering continues to grow! We have reserved THE ENTIRE B area, 20 sites, including the shelter house and adjacent shaded tent camping. Early arrivals are OK be sure to tell them you're with the Coleman group. As the date approaches I'll need a rough headcount and a count of tents and RVs. You can post here on this thread or PM me if you prefer. Those camping in RVs or arriving early should call the camp office for a reservation.

The rate for tent camping (or those sleeping in the back of their trucks) is $7.50 per head per night. The group rate assumes we're putting 2 tents on each site. The sites are very large and mostly shaded. Plenty of room for EZ ups. RVs will be charged the regular rate of $37.50 per night for 2 adults and minor children. 30 amp electric and water on each site though I suggest you bring your own drinking water.

Located on the Kokosing river, the campground offers canoeing and other activities like putt putt golf, a driving range, a nice swimming pool, basketball and volleyball.

We'll be there. Reserved our spot for next year before we left this year. Great gathering, thanks for keeping it going.

Does the venue allow day-use to the event? I live an hour south of that and I'd love to stop by and see people's collections but camping in Ohio in August is my idea of hell. It'd be nice to come in the afternoon, see people light up at dusk, and then just drive home to air conditioning but some campgrounds are weird about that kind of thing.

Yes, you can pay for a visitor's pass for the day.

We have a shady spot under trees and have electric - bring a fan!

Do you know the cost? They don't list it on their website in the camping section.

What typically goes on at this event?

It is cheap. Call the campground to ask.

We camp, eat like kings, enjoy each other's company, wheel and deal, and show off our Coleman items.

If anyone needs anything at the meeting give me a PM. Parts/glass/misc. items. Starting to thin the heard.

Can't wait. Bring my wife, Pam, this year.

Traci and I are coming with the Apache Falcon. We are also bringing some friends new to Coleman. They will have a small popup and a really small tent. We can't come until Saturday so save us a spot!

Between that pesky job and kid obligations, think I'll be there Thursday (18AUG) and Friday (19 AUG) night. Maiden visit to Kokosing, looking forward to seeing some new faces.

Myself and 3 kids, likely tenting if weather permits.

I am relatively new to this gathering although I was there last year. I was sitting around last night coming up with a theme, sorta, just for me, as its something I always do for these things. I am going to bring my 15 oldest lanterns to light and display. So how about bring the oldest stuff you got! Everything I could come up with was pre 1936 ( I think). Open to other suggestions of course.
