Details

This Bold Betties event is half private cave tour (4 hours) and half camping trip. I have reserved camping site # 1126 at Ozark Outdoors Riverfront Resort. This resort is only 5 minutes drive from the cave tour. Onondaga State Park Camping is fully booked for the entire summer so I had to book at the other closet place, and this is privately owned and costs to camp per person, per night. The site that has been reserved is a family site and fits up to 20 people. This site is between the bathrooms and near the water. The cost to camp is $26.24 PER PERSON for both Friday and Saturday night. If you only want to camp for one night (Friday or Saturday) then the cost is $13.12 PER PERSON for the one night. I have paid a deposit and will need to collect all the money via PayPal or Venmo by AUGUST 1st.

The date for this event is August 10! We will carpool down on Friday night, camp and then do the 5 hour cave tour on Saturday. This is about about a 2 hour drive, 15 minute drive, and we would carpool together unless you just wanted to come down on your own Saturday. Those who are doing the cave tour, will need to be at the cave entrance ready to go at 9:30am. If anyone wants to just come and just camp, there are tons of activities offered at Ozark Outdoors Riverfront Resort including tubing, floating, in the tree's ropes course, hiking trails. This resort is a 5 minute drive from Onondaga State Park and 37 minutes from Meremec State Park.
