Ok - time to put some feelers out. Yes it's early, but to make this happen around here reservations definitely need to be made early!

We are looking at Labor Day Weekend 2014 as the possible NW Moomba/Supra Jam. That would be Aug 29 - Sept 1. Here are the details so far:

Location: Prineville Reservoir (Central Oregon)

Camping: Prineville Reservoir State Park - http://www.reserveamerica.com/camping/Prineville_Reservoir_State_Park/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=OR&parkId=402461
Prineville Reservoir Resort (private) -http://www.prinevillereservoirresort.com/

The state park has a nice amphitheater and some kids programs to keep them occupied and having fun. There's also the opportunity for some bass, crappie, catfish and trout fishing if you're up for it.

Both have RV/Tent spots, a few cabins and the resort has a few small motel-ish rooms for rent. Both offer ramps, moorage, nice beach and day use areas, etc. and they are roughly 15 minutes apart by water or land. The private resort also has gas at the marina, a small store, restaurant, etc.

There are also a few other smaller campgrounds around but I do not have details handy at the moment. The town of Prineville is about 30 min away and also has lodging options for those non campers.

Off the top, between Newty's connections and myself we have around 5-6 families/boats who are ready to commit. There are several of you out there in WA, OR even Canada or NorCal who should really consider making the trip - especially if you've never been. This is a beautiful, big reservoir with amazing water and weather all summer.

Mike I know you have standing plans for LBC that weekend, but really you're maybe a couple hours away. Easy tow for the day so you could hit the main events / highlights.

Please respond and indicate your interest and any questions you have. We'll post this over on the Supra site as well but would prefer to direct them here so we can keep all in the info in one spot.

PS - this is the sort of thing that awaits every day...

Can't wait. Such a beautiful place. Lots of lake and plenty of activities to keep all the ages busy. It doesn't get as busy as you would think on a holiday weekend either. You can always find butter. Hit either of us up with any questions.
Here's some pics from the parking lot on Saturday around noon on labor day weekend this summer.http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/11/23/y4yde6e3.jpg

Prineville is hands down the best boating in the Pac NW. Warm glass-like conditions almosts certain, great campground, awesome place for the kids, close drive, can be a blast fishing if the crappie/bluegill are hitting it, plenty of beaches and coves to pull out and enjoy 5 o clock. We will be there if we can get a spot!!!

Great pics Pat!
Pat and his family have been vacationing with us for some time now. Always a good time. We hit Prineville as much as possible.
His all black 07 LSV and my 08 get lots of looks where ever we go.

Hmmm... Was thinking of "stay-cation" boating most of the summer, but you guys might just tempt me to join.

So looking at the Reserve America, we'd have to jump on the reservations on Friday the 29th in a few days?

That said, if we can make it, we wouldn't be able to head out until after work on the Friday and would only be able to stay though Monday (the traditional 3-day weekend with no extra time off work). For that duration, do you guys recommend getting a slip?

Def get a slip. You only need it Sat and Sun. So nice to just walk down to the boat and go. Its fairly inexpensive. There is not always room to park the trailer in your site. Plenty of trailer parking around but it may be a ways from your site.

That's what I was thinking. I am pretty much down to get a camp site that's near the pathway to the boat slips...

Is it okay to have an extra vehicle in your campsite as long as you pay an extra vehicle fee? We'd have to come with friends so we'd have a tow rig for both the Supra and for my camping trailer. I sure ain't sleepin' on the ground when I have a decent trailer!! (although whatever friends we recruit for Tow-duty will be tenting it! LOL)

Whatever you can fit is usually how it works.

Cabin: $87
Tent Site: $21
Site w/elec: $28
Site w/ full: $31
Slips: $10/day
Ex Car: $7/day

http://www.oregonstateparks.org/index.cfm?do=parkPage.dsp_parkRates&parkId=26

If you end up staying at the private park, you can also get a slip, but if you have a good anchor you can just leave your boat off the beach. I've done that for a week at a time - anchored up right out from our camp site. Lots of people do that actually. Never a problem, with exception of a freak windstorm and a worn out anchor buddy.

Private park rates are about the same.

bergermaister
11-27-2013, 03:12 PM
If you are planning to attend or even thinking "maybe" - NOW is the time to start booking spots at the State Park. If you book Wed - Mon you can do it today, then cancel the extra days later. The park is already beginning to fill up.

Cabins are now gone.
Trailer / hookup spots are still available
Tent spots will probably be the last to fill in.

Don't wait!


Remember - if the state park fills up, the private park is also an option.

Cool I will leave my boat home and come with you. That way I can get ess faced all day, I love being a passenger.

But seriously I did not book a spot for Friday night so I will have to figure that one out. I'm good Saturday and Sunday night though.

OK we are in A01 and have boat slip #11. I was able to get that reserved this morning. There were tons available earlier but as of right now only #3 is left.

We have 2 friends and the daughter and her BF coming along. We are looking forward to it. We have one of those 10' blow up islands we will bring along as well.

A heads up to anyone that is not from Oregon. I went to one of the state parks (Lake Billy Chinook) over the weekend and met up with "Junior Woodchuck Ranger Bob" who just as I dunked my boat into the water at the launch informed me that I needed an "Invasive Species Permit" to go into the water.

Um, okay. News to me.

So, I ask him how much it is and where I can pay. He mumbles something about it being $5 and I needed to drive a few miles back into town and buy it at the Culver Market. Turns out that the permit for OR state registered boats is only a $5 add-on and happens automatically with boat registration. However, for those of us from out of State, it's $20 + a $2 agent fee.

So, be warned, if you're coming from out of Oregon, get your $20 permit. What frustrated me the most was that I couldn't just pay the money and get my permit at the launch. I had to drive back to town and get it.

They also sell them online:
http://apps.oregon.gov/ECommerce/OSMB/AISPermit/PermitForm

They sell them at 4 locations in Prineville:

R&R GROCERY & SPORTING GOODS
940 SE COMBS FLAT RD

Those are the ones I know are confirmed.

As for Sponsors, I spoke to Wake Makers and they plan to bring Surf Boards, Wake Boards, Ballast Bags, and that type of gear for us to demo. I assume they will have some decent discounts if you buy at the Event.

Also I haven't confirmed but I'm pretty sure I can Get Exile to toss in something also.
My other goal I'm working on is to see if AWS will pitch in a Boat Service, either a winterization, or a oil change, something like that.

"Invasive Species Permit"

PRINEVILLE RESERVOIR RESORT
19600 JUNIPER CANYON RD



If you forget the permit, this is by far the closest place to the State Park - just a little further down the road. For anyone still thinking about trying to go and can't get into the state park, this place may have availability. Worth a check. Also just a short boat ride away (full marina with gas).


Hoping we can post up some details, hell maybe even a little schedule soon, but it will be pretty lax. :cool:

Just a heads up to the tent campers, plan accordingly for some cool mornings. Ok COLD mornings - like in the low to mid 40's at sunrise. It's that time of year when I wish I had a heater in the boat for the morning run...

Once the sun climbs it warms up very quickly though. Not as hot during the day as it could be but should still be a good time!

Way to be positive guys! The forecast I've been looking at looks great.
It always gets breezy in the afternoon, and even when its windy there is always glass close by.
No matter what, its going to be a good time. For those who have never been, prepare to fall in love.
Couple things I wanted point out as far as what to expect.
-If you don't have a slip try to grab one when you check in. Not necessary but it is quite convenient and the docks are nice.
-Ice and firewood are sold at the campground and are reasonably priced.
-There is a marina on the lake for gas fill ups and a small store.
-Lots of great kids activities are put on by the park rangers both during the day and after dinner they have fun presentations at the amphitheater followed by smores or snacks. In the past years they have done a kids parade on Sunday of Labor Day.
-If your are bringing kids, bring bikes or scooters, etc. there are lots of places to ride around and explore.

Should be an awesome time. We have 7 families with 6 boats in my group not counting the folks here.
Post up your site # so I can come down and drink your beer. I'll be in cabin 3 so you can come drink my beer. lol
(Sorry Trayson, I won't have any wine coolers or Zima for you)
Ill be in cabin 3. Mandleys dream truck (my black Dodge) will be parked in front.
I'd tell you what slip I'm in but I'm guessing you'll figure that out.
Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
I should be on the water in less than 48hrs.

Spot B9 - Look for the condo on wheels with the coffin sized cooler out front - with friends like Newty you need to plan accordingly with libations... :p

Wind - yes it can come up in the afternoon but can also die right down. Last year after our freak 'Stormin Margarita party' wind event (very rare) maybe 30 min afterwards we were out riding on glass again. Night surfs are always a strong possibility too with at least a few willing victims. I even picked up a zillion candlepower spotlight so no more "Marco Polo" when we forget the glow sticks!

Speaking of that - who's up for a surfbowl?

So this may not have come up yet, but the way the slips are situated with the camp overlooking the dock, this is a safe place. Several of us who have stayed around here regularly leave boards in the racks, towels, misc gear laying out overnight and have never had any problems.

Plus since Mike's camp site has the perfect vantage point he's automatically nominated to run security and surveillance from dusk til dawn. I thought someone had already mentioned that but....

Looks like my slip #16 will be a good test of my low speed maneuvering skillz.... it's the one in the lower right corner of the pic that's occupied by the aluminum outboard next to the cable reel. At least I'm protected on both sides from other boats. I mean, I'd probably be nervous if Mike was next to me and went staggering down to the slip!

Be careful out there. There is a floating out house on the way to the dam. Marked rocks on one side and UNMARKED on the shore side. My wife found them while I was surfing. Bottom of the boat looks like shark week. It stopped the boat dead in its tracks. Took a about 6 of us to lift the boat off the rocks. That was a week ago Sunday. Great lake, water is very deep and safe most places. We have been going there for years. Have fun, sorry we are missing out.

Sorry to hear that! I've seen the sheriff out there inspecting before. The boat pulled away and there were still 2 guys "walking on water". We typically don't venture down that way as much.

There is another floating outhouse headed the other direction (across from the private park) - you will see it on the way to the marina if head down that way. Safe on all sides. Well, depending on how long you can hold your breath...

This morning was glass for hours.

When we were just about done, Mike found us and offered me up Steven's Doomswell. How could I NOT surf the red rocket??? That board is fantastic.

on the very last run of the weekend, my throttle cable snapped. My boat had enough and decided we needed to go home, and not even one more short run was gonna happen. We disconnected a bracket and were able to control the throttle by pulling the lever on the carb. It got us back to the slip, and we were a little late getting out of camp, but made it happen okay.

Grabbed a late lunch in Prineville and avoided the Govt Camp traffic (thanks Berg) and then had to take Bridge of the Gods to avoid an 18 mile parking lot on I-84! (thanks Google maps). So we took the long way home, but were moving at freeway speeds the whole time, so that worked well for us.

The spare tire made it pretty much the entire round trip. *whew*


Thanks to Exile Audio for the pair of Buoy Balls that I won! Love those things.

The camper's unpacked, the boat's unloaded and parked, and it's time for bed.

Thanks for the great weekend all!

Great to meet you all and put screen names with real names and faces! Good thing (for Jake!) the park rangers don't have the authority to arrest... ;) They do like their quiet hours.

I'm a bit bummed that we were not better organized for some more group hangouts on the water along with a group photo but glad to hear that a few were able to jump aboard with one another to spend some time and try different gear.

Pretty sure little Olive was the hit of the weekend for us (except for my old lab)! Now I need to hide these pictures so I don't have to say "NO" 500 more times to my kids.

Berg! There's no reason to apologize! I didn't come out there expecting free stuff. The give always were very nice. Newty giving $300 in free service, a ZLD, winterization from Active just to name a few! I thought you guys did a great job. Everyone's boats were gorgeous, I think that was my favorite part. I got to see everyone's hard work and love they put into them. Honestly that was the most customization I've ever seen done on wakeboats at one dock at one time.
My only regret is I didn't hop on CJ's Mondo. But big thanks to Mandley for schooling me behind his Mojo and Josh for giving me a turn behind the wheel in his Mojo and Greg tossing me his Inland Surfer!
But it was the people who made it a success. When we hit the road yesterday all we could talk about was what a great group! We will be back!

You should have seen the "custom" perfect pass I was running on Monday to get back to the boat slip! it was my boat with my engine cover up, and my friend pulling on the throttle lever on my carburetor with his fingers to make my boat do more than just idle in gear.

I'll tell ya, if you thought my boat was loud normally, try it with the engine cover open!

Now I have to tear into it tonight to figure out if it is the throttle cable that snapped (like I think it is) or if by chance something in the throttle lever failed (which I hope it's NOT).

Hopefully I can have my boat back on the water by the weekend.

Berg, I've had a couple people on the Supra forum say that they would have come to the Jam if they'd known it was happening. I coulda swore that it was posted on both forums, but maybe not??? Next time we all do a PNW event, we should make sure it gets up for the local Supra people to see too...

I can't wait for the next one. Maybe we should have two events? A season opener type event and this one for Labor day as well. I know that we can't be TOO premature about starting our boating season in the PNW because of weather, so maybe an early summer thing isn't realistic, but it's something to think about I guess...

As far as venue, I really like Prineville Res. It's a smidge farther than LBC, but it still boasts the good weather and with the smaller campground it's probably easier for us all to find each other and interact. And that also meant shorter distances for you and Newty to limp around.

09-02-2014, 06:17 PM
Yeah, my bad on that one. Don't cruise the Supra site much if ever. Should have had one of you Supra guys here post up details over there. >>> Next time.

Earlier in the year would be nice for potentially hotter weather and higher water. Wind is always a crap shoot but usually as good or better than what we had. Nice thing about the holiday weekend is that most have that free extra day...

However next year Labor Day is Monday Sept 7 - most likely AFTER school starts so that may be tricky for us with youngins.

Yep, continuous improvement!!

And I totally agree about the 3-day weekend biz. It's fiercely competitive for my wife to get summer time off. I would imagine there's others that don't have the summer flexibility to take the extra days off here and there.

I certainly like things that are RV or camping friendly. Keeps the costs down so we can put more into the gas tanks!

It's probably too damn cold and unpredictable to do Memorial Day, huh?

There are a few possible locations besides Prineville but pretty much all of them require early reservations. I've stayed at both the Prineville Res Resort (with the marina) and now the State Park. Both have their pros and cons but in the end I think the State Park wins out. Better and more spots, nicer bathroom/shower facilities, docks are closer, WAY less dusty, a little protected from the wind. Both locations are pretty serious about their quiet hours.

July would be cool. My family would appreciate avoiding the last minute chaos leading right up to school too.

Memorial weekend down there is highs in 70s, lows in 30-40s and not so warm water.

I am a fan of the 3 day weekend when it's a 3.5 hour drive (sans traffic) one way. We were just getting into our mojo (no pun intended) after the 2nd or 3rd day).

I think that most of the people around the campfire were fans of leveraging the holiday weekend. That's the sentiment I heard.

My first and foremost vote is Labor Day weekend.
