Straight Shooting : Winter-time camping has plenty to offer in the Natural State
Thursday, November 6, 2003
The calendar says it’s November, but based on the recent weather, you have to wonder. With temperatures in the high 70s earlier this week, it’s hard to accept the fact that winter is here. It just seems like fall is refusing to release its grip on northwest Arkansas. But hey, who’s complaining?
While November to many means the end of the fishing season and the start of the traditional hunting year, there are a few who simply refuse to give up on fall activities. While many of our local campgrounds called it quits for the season on Oct.

Enjoy the slower pace of Tonto Basin
Located 35 miles south of Payson, the lake is popular among anglers who turn out in droves to try their luck at catching crappie, channel and flathead catfish and largemouth and smallmouth bass. Roosevelt also attracts outdoor enthusiasts eager for a turn at water skiing, boating, swimming, jet skiing and windsurfing.
At high water, the lake has more than 19,000 surface acres with 112 miles of shoreline measuring 25 miles long and two miles wide.
The lake is 349 feet deep at the dam and contains up to 543 billion gallons of water when full.
Due to the state's drought, the lake level had plunged to about 20 percent in recent years.
Pitch a tent and defy the cold
The fair-weather campers are at home by the fireplace, the flurry of camping that goes with the major hunting seasons is finished and a lot of Oregon's public-owned campgrounds are buttoning up for the winter.
"The formal ones, the big ones" all are closed, said Ray Crist, public information officer for the Detroit district of Willamette National Forest. "We normally wouldn't be getting much use by now in our campgrounds anyway, as cold as it is."
There still are plenty of places to pitch a tent and build a campfire, and in a lot of cases fees have been waived until next spring.

Southwest Colorado Springs residents lost their last bid Monday to ban open campfires at a new state park that they fear could get out of hand and spread to nearby homes.
The Cheyenne Mountain Neighborhood Association has tried for a year to get only propane cooking allowed at Cheyenne Mountain State Park, slated to open in 2004. Members said the fire pits on 66 camping sites would be too close to their homes and would pose a threat to the surrounding area.
After unsuccessful negotiations with Colorado State Parks, association president John Vasilakis asked the City Council last month to pass a resolution opposing open pits.

Fam in tight corner over team funds
Fam found itself at a tight spot on Monday following government's delay to release funding for Flames' camping at Capital City Motel in Lilongwe and foreign-based contingent's air travel for this Saturday's World Cup second leg preliminary against Ethiopia in Lilongwe.
The association was further thrown in a delicate situation when Lilongwe Hotel made it crystal clear that it will not open the doors for the visiting Ethiopia national team which is expected to arrive on Wednesday unless a down payment is made.
moose lake state park
The land was once sheltered by old growth red and white pine. The area was heavily logged at the turn of the last century and the great pine forests have been replaced by aspen, basswood, birch, maple and open fields.
Over the years, red and white pine and spruce have been planted by the DNR to give the park a flavor of what northeastern Minnesota looked like before the axes and saws came.
The trees are thriving and one of the trails, the Tall Pine Trail, takes visitors through a magnificent second growth pine forest. The dusty green branches of the red pine appear to be etched into the bright August sky.
