Wow, Spring is here and we are off and running. We’ve had our “Cabin Fever DOG” in February at Andrew Jackson State Park, SC. This is where we get together with long-lost friends that we have not seen since last fall. Many of us have new toys to show off and recipes from new cookbooks that we got for Christmas.
The weather was perfect at the “Cabin Fever DOG”. It started off a little nippy and overcast, but lo and behold, the sun came out and life was good. As usual, we ate too much, but that didn’t matter as we were camping nearby, so it was not far to go back to our campsite, build a fire and spend more time with friends and family.
We meet up with the Capital City Dutch Oven Group (Raleigh, NC) and the Old Dominion Iron Chefs (Richmond, VA) at Jordan Lake State Park for The NC-VA 2 State DOG which is becoming one of our more popular Dutch oven gatherings. The weather was great, which was real nice as this Dutch Oven Gathering seems to have more rain than usual.
We’ve been a little slow on writing up a new article for the Southeast Camper website. We have since had the Southeast Camper Dutch Oven Gathering Spring DOG, traveled to Georgia for the Peach State Dutch Oven Group Spring Gathering and planning what is next. It seems as though we never stop.
Our Dutch Oven Gatherings average about 35 – 50 cooks ’n’ guest with about 25+ black pots on the table, ranging from Meatloaf to Green Beans. Our cooks have gotten good at desserts, putting out specials like Banana Pudding Cake, Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies and many more.
We do not have memberships, just show up , put a black pot on the table and enjoy the company. We are a laid back easy-going group. The only pressure is what you put on yourself.

Spring has come and we are on the edge of summer. It is time to get fired up and get out of the house and go camping. For most of us at Southeast Camper, we have been on 4 or 5 camping trips or a DOG or two this year. This year will be jam packed with events. Visit the Event Calendar for more information.
So far this year we have had 3 DOG’s or Dutch Oven Gatherings, The Southeast Camper “Cabin Fever” DOG, The NC-VA 2 State DOG and The Southeast Camper “Spring” DOG. We have many more planned.
Some of our club members will be going to The National Dutch Oven Gatheing at The Kansas State Fairground in Hutchinson, KS. The NDOG 2018 is going to be BIG, and if you’ve never been to one, it is well worth it to go.
If Cook Offs are your thing, sign up for the Mast General Store Mountain State Fair Dutch Oven Cook Off in Fletcher, North Carolina. It will be held in September. (see event calendar)
Keep your ovens clean and ready for cooking. Join a DOG near you.
