CAMPSITES: I have 5/camp sites reserved that should be good for 30 at least (6/site) but only if people have small tents (tents rated for 3 persons or less). We can possible fit more than 4 tents per site if people have 2 person or less type of tents (= or < than ~ 5X7ft footprints). IF YOU HAVE A LARGE TENT THEN CONSIDER MAKING RESERVATIONS FOR YOUR OWN CAMPSITE if any available or confirm people are sharing the tent with you. If we end up having a long wait-list we will inquire with people about their tent's footprint size so that we can see if we can let in more people.
COSTS: Its ~$200 for 5 sites/ 2nights. The cost will be divided evenly among attendees regardless if you stay One or Two nights.
EXCESS VEHICLES: An excess vehicle fee of 10.00 will be charged by the park for all vehicles over the limit of 2 per site. The park office will let you know on the vehicle count per site at check-in. After that each vehicle will be responsible for there fee. I will post the site numbers after I check-in friday/3pm.
