Dear Friends, 
We hope you've been enjoying this beautiful Fall season. This year we closed the Resort on Monday, September 3rd, just after Labor Day Weekend. This earliest closure in the 17 seasons that we've been here was prompted by the Forest Service's improvement project at the Moon Lake Campground and the uncertain disruptions this might have had on our guests. 
At this moment, we are happy to report that the very capable contractors are projecting completion by the end of this month. 
(Keep fingers crossed and knock on wood!!!) 
If all goes well, we are all anticipating no significant disruptions to the 2013 camping season! 

We have to admit that 2012 was a tricky season. Rumors of closures, the actual campground closure, fire restrictions, wildfires and severe drought in the state made it a real day-to-day challenge for us. 
We again want to thank everyone that came up this year and invite all those of you that missed 2012
to come back in 2013. 
Although we closed early, we have remained on site, making improvements and repairs that we have no time for in the operating season. 
This Fall, we have improved roads and trails, painted, patched and paneled many cabins and at last, spent some time working on the Lodge living and work spaces, most notably-old, defunct cabin 6 that is now a clean and organized work space for the maintenance team. 
With these improvements, along with new floors and many new mattresses installed in Spring, 2012 
PLUS the major Campground renovation improvements--
We think it is safe to say that you'll find Moon Lake-Better Than Ever in 2013! 

PS: Just for Fun--Check out the photo of an old sign we found when re-roofing Cabin 6 (it was used as a patch for a Hole in the Roof!) 
This reminds us that folks have been enjoying Moon Lake for a long time!

Here's to another 85 or so years... See you in the Spring! 
Bill, Julie and the Moon Lake Gang
