This is a support event for my backpacking trip the same weekend. You may only attend this event if you're signed up for another HVH event the same weekend.

There is a fee of $15 for this campsite payable in cash on arrival.

Group size limit is 6.

What to Bring:

It'scold at night in the mountains. You need a good sleeping bag rated to 30 degrees F or lower. In addition to a sleeping bag, you need a very good sleeping pad. It is important to have insulation between you and the ground. The filling in your sleeping bag that is underneath you will be compressed and provide no insulation. I highly recommend a sleeping pad with an R value of at least45. (Hint: most closed cell foam pads have a 2.5 R value. If you double them up you will have a combined R value of 5.)

You will also need something to keep the weather off of you while you sleep. Since we're below the tree line, any small 3 season tent should do. You want something with good ventilation so that you don't get soaked in condensation over night.
