Have a great time. Thus far, FG is my favorite waterway in the U.S. Please post pics.

From 2014, Utah side.

Niiiiccce! We are rolling a bit later, just waiting for Tracey to finish up work. I'm hoping to catch sight of some Eagles while we are drifting around. I'll take some pics and post em.

We didn't go earlier in July - The weather looked sketchy. Moosehead - I showed your pics to Tracey, she works from home. I thought she was going to shut it down and quit work before her log off time at 10am. I haven't been to FG since the mid 80's; excited to get back up there, it's a beauty of a lake.

Neil, let's try to connect at FG next season, eh? You'll want to go back. Take a cruise by HideOut campground. All HO campsites have their own Trex dock, two tent pads, a covered picnic table, and fire ring.

You're likely already prepared, but good idea to haul everything into camp up there and have a full gas tank in your tow rig. We hauled in firewood and a large water container, though some campgrounds have potable taps. The marinas are decent, but limited in gear/food offered.

Water temps can still be in the 65-68F range, so shorties may be worthwhile.

This summer we made the call to haul up to Sandpoint, ID, it will be hard to drive by FG enroute.

Enjoy.

Moosehead - Sure I'll meet up - Always up for an adventure. We are set for camping anywhere any season.

We had a great weekend. I haven't been to FG since mid 80's.

We pull into the campground, back the rig into the spot and start setting stuff up. Tracey goes next campsite over with Lulu to say hello. First thing the dude says to her is.... "You have a MasterCraft. Why are you guys in a tent?" LMAO - Beers ensued.

We pretty much went into every nook and cranny all the way to Lucerne. I don't remember Horseshoe canyon being wakeless. FG is everything and more that I remember from waaaay back in the day. My family started going there in 1969. I skied, boarded and surfed all weekend, water was great. I usually don't board, so this says a lot.

Water was 73 degrees. I have quite a few pics; I'll sort through and get them up soon.
