This will be an interesting and educational weekend camp for all levels. I have reserved a 20 acre pristine wilderness campsite on Lake Hultman. Map here:http://holidayhillscamping.com/areaattractions.html
Reaching the campsite requires paddling across the lake from Holiday Hills campground. Row boats/canoes/kayaks can either be brought by members of our group, or rented from the campground. We will have to limit the number of boats/canoes as the campsite can only accommodate a limited number at the boat landing. Priority for the landing space will be given to canoes and boats used for group gear and people transport over those for individual use.
Plan to arrive any time on Friday the 12th. I would anticipate spending the majority of Saturday at the Standish Price Interpretive Trail.
The only wild food interpretive trail in the country!
The Standish Price Nature Trail is a unique educational resource designed for those interested in edible wild plants as well as more general plant identification, ecology, and field botany. With 118 stops featuring 110 species, this is one of the largest interpretive trails in the United States (in terms of the number of species covered and the amount of interpretive text accompanying the trail). It is also, as far as we know, the only such trail that focuses on edible wild plants (featuring 71 species).
Cost for the camp site is $50 per night up to 6 people, then $10 per night per person for additional campers. I will initially ask for a $10 sign up fee, which will be adjusted accordingly as we get a firm number of participants. I would anticipate some additional costs for firewood purchased at the campground. As a primary focus of this trip is food, and we don't have to carry it on our backs, I'd look at this as an opportunity to show off some of our best campfire cuisine!
