A few reminders about Group Camping:
This is a camping weekend; There is no electricity. But there is tap water! However,
bring some h2o in because you may not walk to the Kitchen every time.
The only duties campers will be assigned throughout the weekend are to clean up after
yourself and others.We have three potlucks that everyone needs to help clean
up.Many hands make light work!
There are 25 camp sites of varying sizes.No
RVs or tent camper. To heavy for the wetlands.
NO pictures at either pool areas or of shower area so people feel comfortable with being clothing optional.
quiet time (loud,loud sounds travels to neighbor. Regular noise does not.Low music and Musical
instrument are fine. Be respectful, we will be to close together.
NO PETS (with the exception of service animals) are allowed on site Due to allergy and wildlife concerns.
