Devil's Hopyard SATURDAY NIGHT Camping Fun!

Bucket List Bunch has heard your prayers for your Saturday Only overnight request!! AMEN! FOR OUR FOURTH YEAR IN A ROW COME JOIN US FOR SOME GOOD 'OL FASHION CAMPING! You know, tents, giant camp fires, cooking on embers, creepy ghost stories. There are even waterfalls to play in. It's quite nice. There are bike and hike trails and rumors of nearby bouldering paths and it's cheap!! So dig out that old camping gear you bought on a whim and put some use to it. Bring volleyball nets, badminton rackets, frisbees, whatever equipment tickles your fancy or JUST RELAX!! We've found the best spot on the campground! We'll share the responsibility of food to feast on our famous potluck picnics and we ask everyone to bring one bundle of firewood and one bag of ice. You may include what food and/or drink you're going to bring in your RSVP.

For the past three year's we've had an absolute BLAST!!! We checked off our lists:

  • SITTING UNDER THE BACKSIDE OF A WATERFALL
  • Going on a night walk in pitch black
  • Watching shooting stars
  • Indulging in banana s'mores
  • and eating some fabulous camp food!!

Click the year to see the fun we've had in the past! 2010 2011 2012

Just like last year, it's one stop shopping for Bucket Listers!! Just click yes and $10 will cover your campsite for the whole weekend. We'll handle all the reservations so you don't need to!! Just click YES and let the good times roll!!

Children are welcome!!!! (Alcohol is allowed for campers 21 and over)

***NOTE: Each campsite holds 2 tents, 2 cars, and 6 people. If you RSVP yes to this event you must be willing to carpool, share camp space, and even tents with up to 3 other bucket listers. We will reserve camp sites depending on the number of people that RSVP. THIS IS A RAIN OR SHINE EVENT.

What? CAMPING!!!!!
Where? Devil's Hopyard State Park 366 Hopyard Road, East Haddam, CT
When?
Saturday July 6, 2013 to Sunday July 7, 2013.
Check in as early as 1:00PM (you may arrive later) and check out is 12:00PM
How? Just click YES!! It's that easy. $10 to camp for the night!
Why? Why the heck not? If Kathy comes you're going to eat like Kings and Queens!!

FUN FACTS!

  • Each site is allowed 6 people, 2 cars, and 2 tents which means about 3 people per car and per tent so we'll have to share
  • There is one picnic table and one firepit with a grated grill cover at each site
  • EACH PERSON SHOULD BRING ONE BUNDLE OF WOOD and one bag of ice
  • THIS IS A RAIN OR SHINE EVENT
  • Anyone with out of state plates should park in the overflow lot which we will direct you to
  • There is a water pump and an outhouse which isn't all that bad but an extra roll of tp or two wouldn't hurt
  • Bring food like you would for a potluck weekend. Feel free to list what you are bringing

Fees will only be refunded if we cancel or reschedule the event. RSVP'ing YES releases Bucket List Bunch LLC from any liability and you cannot sell, transfer, or give your space to another person. RSVP'ing NO relinquishes your space and any fees paid.

    Hi Mindy. Just curious if R.V.'s are allowed? We have a small camper, but not sure yet what our plans are, but wanted to know if this was a possibility? Thanks.

      Colleen it was great meeting you Sunday! Your family is lovely! Hope you join us on an adventure soon!

      It was great meeting you too! What a beautiful place for a picnic and swim in the waterfall. We are avid campers and will definitely plan in advance for next year.

    I am chickening out. I won't get there until 8 or so. It is too hot and sleeping on a air mattress will kill my back. Too far to drive.

    July 6, 2013

      Aw Deb. I'm sorry you didn't make it but I totally understand. Hopefully you'll join us on our next adventure!

    Is there any supplies that you need before I head out?

  • Melinda ".

    If youre coming in on 156 Pass the sign that says picnic area on your right and pass the small sign that says devils hopyard. That's for the picnic area. When you see a sign for camping area Chapmin falls take a right. Go over the bridge and camping area is on left

    Hello! Where so we meet exactly? In the camping area up by the waterfall? Looking forward to meeting everyone!

  • Melinda ".

    We're probably going to make sites 16-18 for the kids and a quieter zone if the parents are ok with that. Sites 5-7 will be the party zone. They are real close to each other practically across the street. So if you know you're going to want to sleep away from all the riff raff try to give us the heads up so we can try to plan accordingly.

    July 2, 2013

    • Melinda ".

      We'll figure it out as we go along

    I really would love to go but having roughed it without toilets/showers for years not having flushers is kinda a turn off. Otherwise I really would have loved this one. Maybe another time if the facilities are better.

    June 30, 2013

    • Melinda ".

      Seriously I'm a total bathroomphobe and these bathrooms are better than many flushing public bathrooms I've been in.

    Hi - I don't really feel like digging out/pitching the tent (or pumping up the air mattress - been there/done that LOTS!). I live relatively close. Might I just be able to join in the evening's festivities and any associated hike(s)? If so, happy to bring food/goodies and/or s'mores makings and still pay my $10. Let me know.

    As quick as I was in, as quick as I regretfully am out. Sorry, change of plans, maybe next chance.
