I have contacted the Sawmill Campground in North Mankato, Phone Number: 507-947-3735 Address: 41392 520th Street, North Mankato, MN 56003 They have graciously offered to let us stay and have electric services and tent sites. he said tents could set up near the folks who have campers so if you have a lamp for your tent you can probobly tap into one of our outlets. Also, a new shower facility.
It is a small but, nice family campground. You folks who want to tent should find this nice. Not sure if it is waterfront but some of the county parks with lakes and beaches are nearby. Golfing enthusists are near some public golf courses. The owner was really nice. many of the others werecounty and state parks which had full reservations set for along time. So this may not have all the fanciest of extrasbut it sounds well cared for and very close to training camp.
Please call and make your reservations on your own. Tell them you are with Vance and the Daily Norseman group. I was appreciative of the fact this man was so welcoming. If anyone need to borrow a tent I have one that is large enough for 4 if needed. two easily. It is 6 by 9. Please call ASAP. He hasenough for 4 campers and will accomodate the tenters near us. It is 17.00 a night for full hookups and 10.00 for tenters. We are shooting for Friday Aug 3 and the following day. For those who cannot make it Friday and can only come for camp Sat. Plan on pitching in on a Sat afternoon picnic before the evening scimmage. We will meet for the Sat morning practice in the parking lot near the training facility. I will have further instructions on where we can meet. Afterward you can follow the weekenders over to the grounds where we can party and eat and then head to the evening scrimmage. Please write for my phone number. Campers! Get your reservations in quick. I have been slow on getting to my e-mails but pleae message here once you have your spot reserved and those who plan to meet on Sat only, I will send my cell number in a return e-mail so we can coordinate that day.
