Join us camping Friday and Saturday night. Friday night will be a relaxing time sitting around the fire telling trail stories, swapping camp recipes, or whatever comes to mind! Wood for the evening fires is always gratefully accepted!
Recreational activities nearby include: boating / paddling / water sports, wildlife viewing, bicycling, hiking, and fishing. Group activities for Saturday will be posted on Meetup as separate events. FTA Activity Leaders, please feel free to organize and post group activities for Saturday.
