TWO STEP SIGNUP (by Sunday, November 27):

1) Pay for food and campsite below

2) Go to this SignUpGenius page for headcount

Family Campsite $30


Only $30 per family for a campsite. The person hauling the trailer will pick a central campsite to use as a basecamp for the group meals and campfire. We have 3 sites for Friday night and 11 sites for Saturday night. Note that priority for Friday night sites will be given to those who sign up and pay first. If you are interested in staying Friday night, please note it on the Signup Genius page.

Note that all tents must fit on the 16'x16' tent pads at each campsite. We do have the option of doubling up at campsites, depending on tent sizes. Please note that due to tent pad size and placement restrictions at the park, we are being cautious on how many sites we double up. We will start by limiting to 15 families (i.e. doubling up at 4 sites). If we reach this capacity we will review tent needs of those signed up to see if more spots can be made available.


$7 per person pays for meals and includes Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast.


There is usually a hike in the afternoon before we all get together to start cooking dinner around 5pm on Saturday evening. Everyone lends a hand to prepare, cook and clean up before we enjoy s'mores around the campfire. Sunday morning we'll have breakfast, pack up campsites, clean up the area and head out.


You can pay for your campsite fee and meals through Paypal on this page. If you prefer to pay via a different method, please contact one of the leaders to discuss other options.

Sites may be available earlier but cannot be guaranteed. You may arrive earlier and enjoy the park until you are able to check-in. If you are going to arrive later than 4:00, please notify the leaders so we can make sure the park headquarters is aware.

Campsites will not be assigned ahead of time. You may take any of our reserved campsites you like, but please let the park headquarters know which site you take (assuming they require you to register with them).

Basecamp: We'll pick when we get out there with the trailer.

Saturday Afternoon: Plan on meeting at the basecamp by 2:00pm. Hike will start shortly afterwards. More information will be provided as logistics get worked out.
