    Once when my mom called me a smart a$$, I told her it was better than being a dumb a$$. That one got me cracked in the mouth, so maybe not so smart after all lol. o_O

    Cabin booked.

    So if you look at the map, they have 2 "loops" of cabins. One is midway down the runway. These are 2Bd 1 bath
    There is a 2nd loop of cabins just past the south end of rwy 02. Those are 2 bd 2 bath

    That's where I booked but I noticed there is a 2nd set of tiedown spots on the south end of the runway as well.

    Just a short swim between cabins!


    Or there may be some Ky Yachts available for the non-swimmers.

    Some of the best ideas in this world were hatched from a good conversation after many a beer....this and the beacon bull ride clearly fits in that category. I imagine the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds brief their flights the same way we were doing.

    We need a GoPro agreement for those attending with security clearances! :)

    " "I would like to give tourists and visitors another good reason to come see us here in the Rough River Lake area," said Corbett, who also circulated a petition in 2014 that successfully resulted in allowing the sale of alcoholic beverages at Rough River Dam State Resort Park. "

    Looks like there are tiedowns in the grass directly in front of the 2 bed 1 bath cabin loop as well. Pretty handy.

    The first time I saw one was at the Wings FlyBQ one year... Pilot shut down one of the engines, and I thought it only had one! I was really wondering how he was taxiing with the prop stopped. :rofl:

    Just booked my Cabin. Considering I don't have a Grumman and according to Bryan's map the south cabins are down that way, I got a cabin in the middle...over by where the riff raff parks their planes. For those procrastinators of the group...which I am fully, can't believe I booked something so far from now...their policy is to cancel 48 hours in advance to get a refund. Not too bad.

    @eman1200 where's the spreadsheet to update with all the info? You're slacking this year.

    I'm all for saving cash, so take this as an FYI... @KayDeeW and I considering booking a room there last year, but they had lots of vacancies, so we waited until we got there. Once there, we rode our bikes over to that motel, took one look, then road back and set up our tent in the sweltering heat...that's how bad it looked.

    sheeeeeit, I think YOU actually did the spreadsheet last year. so please get on it (as per radar contact) and please add a column “most likely to cancel last minute” so we can put a check mark next to theisens name. fine, while ur at it add a “most likely to show up late” column for yours truly.

    We're talking about the one across the street and not the one on site, right?

    Yes. The state park lodge (on site) is nice. If the Kentucky Dam lodge is,say,rated a 8 out of 10, I’d rate the Rough River Lodge a 7 (and the motel down the road mentioned by X3 a 2 or 3).

    Can’t commit to this year, as @KayDeeW and I just bought a house...

    Can’t say we’ll try to be there, but I will promise to try to try...
