Camp Name

This seems so bizarre starting a thread in the hunting camp forum. Mainly because I thought our family would never buy one. Anyhow I think we decided to name ours Fortunate Sons Camp. My father has always been a CCR fan and it rubbed off on my brother and I . Whenever we are up in the mountains we always have them on so we figured it needed to be CCR related. Curious what some of you named your camps and how you decided on the name ?

My Dad more of a country man, bought a van in the late 70's. Shag carpet throughout. Had a bed in the back and the previous oowner left his collection of 8 track tapes in the van too. One being a CCR tape that my Dad would play. At the time I thought it sure beat Conway Twitty...Lol. kind of got my liking for CCR from that time. Like the name👍

It took awhile to settle on a name. Went back and forth with a couple. Settled on “Old Oak Camp”. There are several huge oak trees near the camp. Got a sign and some shirts made too.

We have had our camp now for 27 years along French Creek in Crawford Co, never thought much about a name although we were thinking at one time about making a sign and calling it "Camp Firewood" but we saw so many camp firewood signs along the way, we thought it would be too confusing.

Although I have a friend who has a camp in Ray Milton, Venango Co. pretty much run down and way back in the woods, We have found snake skins in and around the beds and claw marks on the doors from bears and lots of little critter droppings. So with that said...We put a sign on the side that says" Ray Milton Hilton, Bed and Breakfast " Wish I had a picture....

Ours is "Camp Whyte Tales". It actually took a while for us to come up with it. Had some other names, but nothing stuck until we came up with it. Whyte is our last name so the play on words works well.

Speaking of names, I wonder if Buckethead ever came up with a name for his camp. LOL.

Camp Maxwellhouse named not for love of coffee but for my first hunting dog Choc Lab Maxwell.

Stayed at a camp a few times that was called ---- Rock Lodge and I thought the name was cool. I was informed they got that name after the members just pissed on a rock in front of the camp.

Im sure we will never hear from Buckethead on this subject as much as it has been discussed over the years.


We thought of different names for our camp but always call it after the road it's on. Irish Hill. It will probably always be the informal name
