NEW CAMPING AREAS AND SPACES! Because of the need we have GREATLY INCREASED the available camping area by adding new trails and a LOT of new campsites. There are tent spaces as well as places large enough for large self-contained campers. We were also able to expand the RV area East of the cabin and it will now accommodate up to 6 RVs or 5th wheels of any length. There is one space with sewer hookup and water available. We will provide a shuttle for anyone with walking difficulties who wishes to camp there but wants a ride to the big tent and back.
Speakers for 2018;

A special invitation to come and hear George Faull-
