What’s that? You don’t know how to camp? No worries. This will be doable.
This event is perfect for first time camping.
This is not roughing it.
Full covid measures in place relating to food, restrooms, hiking, campfire and more.
Speaking of restrooms: Flush toilets and showers (not at the same time)
Tents: If you do not have a tent send me a note. I have tents I used to loan out (pre covid). They have not been touched since Oct of 2019 (precovid). I will not loan out (post covid). But I will sell them off for $20 each. I have 8 or so.
If you do want to pick one up: Target or Big 5 have inexpensive options.
They are as low at $15 on sale for small ones $25 or $30 for the 3 or 4 person larger ones.
Bedding: Several good blankets from home will also be fine if you don’t have a sleeping bag. Personally . . . I just use a feather duvet from Ikea. Bring your yoga mats for under you. No need to invest in a bunch of equipment.
Food: Due to covid there is no potluck or food sharing. AND with so many dietary variations and specialized needs/wants .. . it’s just not feasible to make a menu that works for all.
This way you bring what you like. It’s more simple that way.
Really there is no need to go overboard. Simple is better. If you have question of what to get . . . drop me a note and I will give you ideas.
The less prep and cooking needed the better. Avoid (just add hot water) foods. There are restaurants for take-out or eat-in (outdoors) waking distance.
The site has grills.
Really though . . . aim for simple food, not a foodie weekend spending all our time cooking. We will be providing all the firewood and keeping that stoked and going.
Booze: Sure. Bring wine (lots if you wish), or beer or whatever you wish to unwind with. With a little wine . . . you really will not worry too much about the food.
Now let’s talk carpool. Personally not a carpool fan in time of covid. But some still wish it. A carpool matrix will go out the week before the event to all those signed on.
PARKING: We are allowed ONE care for FREE per site. (we have 21 sites)
The FIRST car to the site gets the free spot. EACH additional car will be $13.00
Parking in the site allowed on designated parking spaces. You don’t park on the campsite (people and tents on sites. Not cars.
THERE IS STREET PARKING OUTSIDE THE SITE ON THE SIDE STREETS to save the $13.00
$75 Per Person
Payment link removed once filled.
Kids under 18 free.
Dogs free also. But you have to be responsible.
Event is rain or shine. Rain does not cancel.
