NO prearranged site spots !! First come to set up basis.

I don’t care how many sleep in a tent J I’m counting tents for space, not people. Buddy up!!!

Fires: open fires at fire circle only. Camping stoves are fine by tent, but not under trees.


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.
  • 10 pm to 9 am 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.



ALL are welcome to the potluck dinners. HOWEVER, only if you, per person, bring one item that will feed 5-6 people. Chips don’t count.



You are responsible for all your food !!! At only $50 per person we can’t provide any. Water is on tap at Kitchen shelter, for your site convince bring some for your site. Camping stove are per tent area are fine.

Albertson Store is right there for extra needs. Store does have a deli department.


POOL AND HOT TUB:  Clothing optional.

NO sex in any pool and shower areas; The Longhouse site rules. Again, no pictures here.

Heated Indoor Pool on scheduled times only. No smoking, glass or communicable diseases and must shower first.

Large Hot tub is a small above ground pool with a hot water heater.  Open 24 hours! Be clean or shower first. The heated indoor pool and hot tub are clothing-optional spaces (which does mean optional - clothes or no clothes, it's all good).



Two Out door showers heads are connected to a hot water tank. NO shower walls! Swim suit or naked showering is fine. [remember no sex under shower either – besides, it takes to much hot water!]



One covered bathroom with four separate stalls. ( ‘Peeing’ in the woods is encouraged to help the tank )
