This group is for those that tent camp, hammock camp or boondock with a trailer. Predominately we don't require utilities so it gives much flexibility in choosing campsites. We are not limited to choosing sites that can support campers and RVs. Basic camping goes to any campsite we can drive or walk into. That gives us many camping options. While its nice to have a water tap in a campground we may camp in a place that does not have water. We can carry our own jugs of water. Call us the water packing, propane powered, battery lit, campfire cooking, tent sleeping go any where our cars and feet can take us crowd. Why is there a need for this with another camping club in the area? Flexibility is the reason for this club. We can go to the less trodden more remote places. We can pull up to a group site or field if need be set up camp and be happy campers. So Pack up your cars and packs with gear and supplies for a couple of days and lets go camping!
With camping being the primary activity, secondary activities often include hiking, kayaking, washers, cooking, camaraderie, fire building, and fun times.
