A Path to Happy Camping

All fires are required to be above ground (same protocol as the 24 Hour event).

Maintain an above ground fire by utilizing a chiminea. For other suggestions, we recommend visiting the “Leave No Trace” website. A convenient option is to rely on the communal campfire.

Bring lots of water. Epic Rides will provide some, however, please consider our stash as a backup. You should pack as if you were going camping in a primitive environment (because you are). Bring a few gallons/person for the weekend and you’ll be set.

Venue Details Observed. Restrooms and trash receptacles will be provided. All other creature comforts are up to you, amigos.
