  • 4th Annual Hunger Halloween Hang at Merchants Mill Pond State Park> 26-29 Oct 2017

    The 2017 4th Annual Hunger Hang / Halloween Hang / OBXH20 Hang at Merchants Mill Pond State Park NC

    Fall ( and hopefully cooler weather ) is coming and so is the 2017 4th Annual Hunger Hang.

    In remembrance of OBXH20; I will be setting up a chair for him around the cave man tv. If you have any pictures of OBX, please share them. For those of you who did not know him, OBXH2O was a long time hanger who passed away recently. He attended most of the hangs at Merchants MP SP.

    Meal planning sheet can be found at the bottom of the Sign Up sheet.

    When: 26, 27 28 and 29 ( 12 noon Thursday thru 12 noon Sunday ) October 2017. The Terminator and I usually get there about 12 Noon on Thursday.

    Where: Drive in Group Sites 1. We have Site 1 for all 3 nights. Hosted by The Terminator, Gunner76 and Sam the puppy. Due to the rising costs of the sites, I have not reserved Group Site 2.


    One of the nice things about Group Site 1 is that you can park next to the site to unload you gear and then drive just a few hundred feet to the parking area.

    Food...we usually do group meals so if you can fix and or share something for any of the meals then please do so. If you prefer to bring and cook you own food then that is ok too.

    Firewood...we can always use firewood for the caveman TV.

    Water...there is water available at the site.

    Restrooms...there is a ladies and men's restroom along with a large shower close to Group Site 1.

    Tents... tent users are welcome to join us.If you have never slept in a hammock and want to try it; then let us know and we can usually come up with extra gear ( first come first serve )

    This is also a great place for kids.

    Don't forget to bring a camp chair.

    There are not any grocery stores closeby ( the nearest ones are a 30+ minute drive ). There is a stop and rob close to the park that sells ice and drinks and gas.

    As usual I will have a large yellow sign across from the turn off to the group site. I as many times as I have been here, I still miss the turn off as it sneaks up on you.

    The group sites are about 1 mile south of the park office. If you are not sure where to go then stop at the park office and ask the folks at the counter. They know about us crazy hammock hangers and can point you in the right direction.
