No prior camping experience is necessary. You must supply your own tent, bedding, Friday dinner and Sunday lunch. You may want to bring your bikes and helmets for under 16 too. We can provide you with a list of suggested camping pack list if you are a novice.
The camping fee covers camp entrance fees, the cost of the campsite, All Saturday and Sunday morning's meals. Each family will share a campsite with another family. $30 per person, max $80 per family. Or, plan to join us for the day -- $5 per person per meal.
We practice communal camping. Everyone is expected to pitch in and help with their camp assignments, such as grocery shopping, transporting trailers, cooking, serving, kitchen clean up, or camp set up or break down. This allows everyone the opportunity to have some down time and have a positive camping experience.
Check in time is 4:00 p.m. on Friday. Check out time is 3:00 p.m. on Sunday. Our sites have been reserved, but you can reserve a site through the park system if you want to extend your stay.
We can accommodate 17 camping families. Once we have reached maximum capacity, we will start a waiting list. Payment will hold your spot!
