Go on hikes each day to waterfalls, scenic places, & mountains tall or small.

We'll have a nice cozy campfire each evening to warm your soul. This is a huge, level, grassy site that is an ideal location for a large group of campers. Of course you may bring the entire family!
If each participant would bring just one bundle of firewood for each night of stay, we can have a very cozy campfire. A WMNF Parking Pass is required and costs a mere $5 for a week or $20 for an entire year. This is primitive camping, water and showers are nearby, as well as motels and many restaurants.
There will also be a 'bow and drill fire' workshop on Saturday night courtesy of Nikwanderer. This is the technique used by native Americans for lighting a fire before steel was introduced. A method which is used in survival situations today. Do not expect instant results; this technique takes practice. Using a bow and drill will not always result in a fire, but it will create a deep affection for matches and lighters!
First come, first served. RSVP soon to avoid disappointment. You must register with me in advance to attend this event. There are just 4 openings left as of this post!
