Hi, Kristin! Nice to "see" you, and hope we see you at the event. I'm not sure if we'll be there or not. Family is at my parents' house in CA. They'll be back 2 or 3 days prior, but life has limited time for fun. We'll see...you and Ron, I hope!

RV Parks in Albany, Oregon

North Santiam Open
This is a list of the available RV parks near the North Santiam Open events site in Albany, Oregon..
No designated tent camping near Albany. But you could call ahead and talk to one of the parks to see if they will let you tent camp.

Happy hunting, Klem

How to find Timber-Linn Park

The North Santiam Open
is just around the corner.


To find the lake/pond where the event will be held, click or cut and paste the link below:

http://www.mapquest.com/mq/4-8_BXyMUqey*WH1cA

You can change the overhead view to street map view. Zoom in on the street view to Albany Municipal Airport and Price Road and you will see the blue lake/pond area. The pond (in blue) is just north of the Timber-Linn Memorial Park. The event will be on the south side of the lake/pond. You have to walk across a foot bridge and head east @ 300yards. I will have signs up for you to follow. The parking is a gravel parking area just off of Price Road.

Hint: Look for I-5 and the Albany Airport, the Price road is just east of the airport. . Price Road separates the airport and Timber-Linn Park.

My cell number is 503.302.9484 if you get lost or need farther help.

Klem

ps, here is the good news: the rivers are in great shape with fish available.
Fishing opportunities are on the North and South Santiam, North Umpqua, Clackamas and Sandy. All systems are just now became fly fishable. YEA!!!!!

I go in the morning to the North!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

other than the KOA campground in the link Klem provided, the closest tent camping that I'm aware of is at Waterloo County Park, 25-30 minutes drive away. The park is situated on the South Santiam river, and there's (moderate quality) spey water available within walking distance both above and below Waterloo Falls at the Park's lower boundary.

I've asked some friends, and everyone is drawing a blank on more convenient options.

Open Camping

Thanks Steve for finding the tent camping place at Waterloo.
The plus side to waterloo is the South Santiam has steelhead available. The best area is around Sweet Home which is another few miles East of Lebanon.

Everyone bring a folding chair for your comfort or a blanket to sit on for the event. A couple of rod builder are bring their wares for us to test drive- Anderson, Meiser and Godshall = FUN, FUN, FUN

Friday afternoon a few of us will be setting up the course. If your are around stop by and do some casting and help us fine tune the event.

See Ya'

Yes, thanks Steve, I guess we could make the call and suggest that the Campground at Waterloo will be the "Official" camping locale for the North Santiam Open! Klem I will be leaving Vancouver early Friday morning and will expect to be around the venue sometime in the early afternoon so will be able to give you a hand.

here are driving directions between Timber-Linn Lake in Albany, OR and the campground in Waterloo, OR. I recommend going the "back way" via Route 20 as indicated in the link below. This route simplifies driving through the town of Lebanon - just stay with the main flow of traffic and you'll get through.

http://www.mapquest.com/mq/5-Jsr_lDH8FHXKBKxI

in case the link above gets broken, enter destination search parameters in mapquest as follows: (1) Timber-Linn Lake ... Albany ... Oregon and (2) Waterloo ... Oregon

Waterloo is a very tiny town. It has a small convenience store right on the main road, less than 1 mile from the campground, hours 10 am - 9 pm, with drinks (soda, juice, beer), snacks, and a modicum of food. The drive through the larger town of Lebanon provides access to big grocery stores, big box stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc.

there is a teeny tiny flyshop in Lebanon (Stutzman's Stoves - the flyshop is a few shelves of stuff) and one in Albany (Two Rivers fly shop). Both shops are trout oriented. A very "steelhead" oriented shop with nice spey fly tying materials is Creekside Fishing in Salem, accessible to people driving down from the North.

folks heading to the Waterloo Campground and interested in actually fishing can get an Oregon licence at the Wal-Mart on the main drag in Lebanon, or in Albany at Joes sporting goods and Bi-Mart

Friday Afternoon at the Open

Kush and anyone else,

I will be at the venue Friday @ 2 to set the coruse. Steve Godshall is coming up from Sourthern Oregon area on Friday and is planning on helping with whatever needs doing. Looks like everything is in place. I will have the course equipment (floats, rope floats etc.) ready to go on Friday PM

Bob Meiser, Gary Anderson and Steve Godshall are bring their wares for the gang to cast. Sounds like this will be FUN

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB
