Please Note
The road from Highway 49 to our camp is privately owned and passes directly in front of the owner’s home. It is the only access to our camp and we are fortunate to have a right of way. We ask that you help us minimize our impact on our neighbor by driving slowly, watching for children and not exceeding 5 m.p.h.
If you are arriving in the evening before your trip, make arrangements to arrive before 11:00 pm as our gate is closed and locked at that time. If you are unable to arrive before 11:00 pm please arrange camping at one of the local campgrounds.
