    We will be somewhere in the shore vicinity of the East Boat Ramp. Just look for everyone that is set up. The area is kept up well, lit at night, and great parking. I personally won't arrive this time until early Saturday morning, but others will be there on Friday evening. I will have my black/silver dodge dakota with me with an OSU sticker in the back window on Saturday.

    Listing of Motels in Area:

    Red Roof Inn
    2939 S Arlington Rd
    Akron, OH 44312

    Inn Phone: (330) 644-7748
    Inn Fax: (330) 644-6554

    Price: Right at $50/Room for 2 persons.

    28 Miles from West Branch State Park, located on I-77. Easy driving. I-77N to I-76E to Venue. Have stayed here before, and it's an ok place. A little far from West Branch, so if you know of any closer in this price range, please let me know asap!

    A good place to book a room online is at http://www.worldweb.com Just do a search for Akron, Ohio. You want to be on the East Side of Akron near I-76. You will get pretty good prices there (the quotes I gave you are from there). You might try http://www.priceline.com for Port Clinton Ohio. Sometimes Priceline gives GREAT rates (like 20 bucks/night...you name your price, and if the accept, you are booked). Only problem with that is if you book, you are stuck with it. No cancelling. At least with WorldWeb you can cancel.

    The West Branch Campground is CLOSED until Summer of 2004 for renovations.
