Buggin Out to a Campground

Postby rshaw72 » Fri Mar 09, 2012 4:40 pm

I Would think a place like the link below would be a great bug out location if you were a member (or maybe not a member if we are in SHTF scenario)
these people that use this location are alot like family. This is way to far away from me but alot of Missouri people could look into it.

the site is http://cloud9ranch.com/


I think a place like this on asmall scale of say 10-15 prepper families with their camp sites and security could be a great BOL...

what are your thoughts?

Theres a small county camp ground within a half an hour from my place that in a pinch would work (I have an older fifth wheel). It has an adequate water supply with only one road into the campground. The primitive campground is even more isolated with only a dirt road meandering through the woods to get back to it with a small river nearby.

This place is actually about 30 miles from me. Its a very popular camp ground and home to a lot of people during summer months, to find a place to camp might be hard. Its also members only, in a bug out situation I don't think many would think to go to here because its more vacation type. This is however several miles back into the woods, and has on site things, and several hundreds of acres.

i agree but that might be what makes it perfect... plus the way they talk it has deer and fish all throughout it and 6500 acres gives u lots of area to hide if need be... thanks for your comments

It sounds like these folks have a pretty good set up here. Set up with helo pads, 24/7 ranger stations and even their own fire department. And it's members only you say?

It sounds to me like it could already be someone's BOL, and they are using it to make money on the side. In that regards, I'd be very very careful of approaching this place, or any other place like it.

Yeah I'm not sure I would count on that. Like Hiker says it sounds like it may be someone else's BOL that they are making a little cash on in the meantime. Even if that is not the case, any kind of state park, campground, or similar location near hunting/fishing/resources will be crowded in the event of many SHTF scenarios. I have a state forest near my home that my wife and I visit to use their archery range, target shoot, etc. and as the economy gets worse, it becomes more crowded. Part of that is people looking for cheap recreation, but part of it is folks getting into target shooting, archery, and fishing because they are looking to supplement their food supply in a bad economy. The same people (some preppers, most not) will look to the state forest (or your campground) if the SHTF as well.

There's actually been a LOT of discussion regarding using any type of a campground -

Sounds like adding a problem to a already bad thing, Who knows who else is there looking for what? And depending on location weather, no permanent shelter. Women and kids don't do well in cold wet places.
Preping is what you make it. Use the time left wisely
There are those than can
There are those that could but don’t
There are those that think they can but can’t
There are those that just wait and see
Where do you fall into the mix?
