Good News & The Other Kind

The good news is the recent rains have eased our concerns about the drought.

The other kind of news is the Woods Valley campground manager called Pete Haak, our Wagon Master, and advised we NOT go forward with the weekend's campout. He sighted mud, ruts, puddles of water and more mud. Not much chance drying out due to the many shade trees and cold, cloudy weather. First time this has happened in corporate memory.

The Garden Grove Elk Lodge RV camping club, the Elk-Enders, is largest single organization (about 100 members). We have about 12 to 14 outings a year, most on the 4th weekend. Any RV from a tent trailer, to a fifth wheel, to a Class A, B, or C 45 foot long motorhome is welcome. Our annual dues are outrageous at $15.00 per year.

We camp at facilities all over So Cal within 200 miles, usually within 120 miles. We have a lot of fun playing some games and doing fun things (Ramona Play, Reagan Museum, Wine tasting tours, Casino night at Vista Lodge, Annual Elk CHEA Rally, Fillmore train).

Some of our outings are at AAA campgrounds and some are free when we go to the DESERT. Twice a year, usually in early March and November, we have our do-it-in-the-dirt. November is during Veterans Day weekend.

We meet in the Lodge room on the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30 PM. Join us at a meeting.

All of the Elk-Enders welcome new members for just $15 dues a year. All you need is a recreational vehicle and a desire to have fun. If you do not own one, consider renting one and join us for our next outing. Check the calendar on for events throughout 2014 and 2015.

If you are a member of the Garden Grove Lodge or an Associate Member and you love to camp, please consider checking out our wonderful camping group. We meet in the Lodge Room on the first Wednesday  month at 7:30pm.  Guests are always welcome.
The Elk Enders are our camping group. Members are members or associate members of B.P.O.E. Lodge 1952. Meetings are held at 7:30 P.M. on the first Wednesday of each month.  Come early for Family Night dinners.
