This will be a Wednesday evening of short presentations, refreshments, and socializing.

Reserve your spot NOW!! Each summer, families gather for an informal campout in late August. This year those dates are Friday, August 21 – Sunday, August 23. Families make their own reservations (and can come earlier or stay later, depending on their desires, but the core dates are Friday–Sunday).
We are reserving sites in Loop C. To make reservations, go to www.recreation.gov and choose “Ohanapecosh Campground” from the drop down menu. Reservations are open now. Ohanapecosh historically reserves quickly, so don’t delay!
