Site amenities:

*There is ample space to place tents of all sizes on site. Electricity can be made available for those with medical needs in tents, but please contact the event steward ahead of time to arrange this.
*There is no additional fee for camping in cabins or with tents
*There is a modern bathroom with flushies and hot showers.
