Weekend tent camping and the Saturday Cajun Feast is included in your registration.
There will be meals available for purchase from multiple food vendors for those who do not wish to cook for themselves. We will post menus and pricing as we receive them.
The menu and pricing for Mikel's Tavern:
You choose your tent camping site when you arrive. There are no water or electric hookups in the main camping areas. If you have a medical need for electric to camp, let us know so we can accommodate you as best as we can.
There are indoor and outdoor showers on site. There are flush toilets in the main building as well as outhouses throughout the property.
There is firewood available for purchase on site ... the camp owner pays for someone to prepare it and bring it to the camp and charges a fee to recover his costs. There are no fire rings at this time. You may bring your own or make your own fire pit in your campsite provided you fill the hole before you leave.
There is plenty of camping space at this site. The main field is approx a quarter of a mile long and more than half as wide ... and beautifully maintained. We do have a "taxi" service on site to shuttle you to and from classes, showers, pool, fire circle or wherever you need to go.
Suggestions for things to bring camping if you aren't an experienced camper can be found here: Camping Gear!
There will be limited space for parking RVs onsite, please let us know so we can allot space for your RV. There are no RV hookups available at this site, however there is a nearby campground with dumping available for a $5 fee.
