It will also make it easy to be a part of all the fun and social activities throughout the weekend. ASC has plenty of space to set up a tent; no reservation needed. Great locations include the East Point Beach area, the grassy spots in front of the cabins along the water front, the grassy areas near the east point pavilion, and the grassy lot above the clubhouse parking lot. For those of you with campers, we will have limited availability; $25/night with hookups. Reservations will open on January 1, 2024. Email Slegg9876@bellsouth.net if you would like a  camper spot.
