Which Gate Do I Go To?

- Familiarize yourself with the Gate Hours here.
Know Where To Go
- A quality tent or RV that can withstand the elements including heat, wind and rain
- Rebar to stake down the corner of any tent or shade structure. It gets very windy here and tents fly away all the time. Make sure you cover the end of the rebar with a tennis ball or empty water bottle to protect people from tripping on it.
- A carpet or mat for outside your tent to keep the dust down
- Rope and tarps for extra sun and rain protection
- A high-quality flashlight for finding your way around at night
- Garbage & Recycling bags for keeping your site clean and tidy
- A water bottle to refill at the water stations
- Cooler for Ice
- Remember no glass is allowed on site (no glass mirrors!)
- Light up your campsite with solar-powered lights
- Gifts to share with your friends and neighbours (Preferably not plastic items that will end up in the landfill)
- Bring pre-filled water jugs to cut down on the number of trips to the refill stations.
Ready To Go Shopping For The Weekend
- Warm pants & a jacket for evenings
- Swimwear for daytime
- Oversized sweater or layers for staying cozy at camp
- A hat
- Bandana / Mask to protect from dust
- River shoes (foot injuries are the most common reason for a visit to first aid!)
