After an impressive winter, it has finally warmed up. Summer is here, and we all know what that means...YES... Kampout is coming! It's just a month away, and if you are like me, you can't wait to get up the hill, sit by the creek and enjoy the beautiful weather.
The Kampout Committee has been busy since last year’s Kampout, working on bringing you another fantastic weekend, and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
This year’s theme is Kampout Goes to the Circus. Yes, there will be bearded “ladies” and strong “men”. The carnival, the midway...we just ask that no clowns due to legitimate fears that some have. As always, we will be having a contest for decorating your site, and we can’t wait to see what you clever kampers come up with. Compete by yourself...or with a group...have a lot of fun and win some great prizes
Kampout will once again be held at our alternative site, which is just across the road on the left of Texas Flat Campground. Texas Flat is closed for the 2019 season, but we are fortunate to have a beautiful site for Kampout.
Kampout is, as always, the weekend after Labor Day...this year Sept. 6-8. The cost of the weekend is $40 per kamper. This covers your kampsite, 2 beer busts, the Progressive Koctail Party, Saturday dinner, 2 breakfasts, and much, much more.
You can relax, or join in all the fun and games that are planned throughout the weekend...and win prizes!! We have the Needle in the Haystack contest, the Yacht Regatta, and the always popular Kamptown Races. Don’t forget the fabulous Kampstravaganza Show on Saturday night. We encourage everyone to participate in this fun show...and compete for Kampout King and Kampout Kween.
Camping in the Sierras can cost over $20 a night, just for a campsite. Kampout costs just $40 for the whole weekend...it is definitely the best bargain for your entertainment buck.
We want to advise you, that because we are on private property, there is no garbage service. Be prepared to “pack it in, pack it out”. Private campfires will be allowed only if they are in an above ground (backyard type) pit. You must also have a fire extinguisher, water bucket and shovel. All dogs must be on a leash at all times. This is for everyone’s safety.
So, mark your calendars. We hope to see you all at Kampout!
