CAMP FIRES & GRILLS
You may bring a fire pit to burn firewood. You may NOT bring outside firewood. You may also NOT burn wood outside of a pit. Using a pit helps us to preserve the land. NO FIRE OR ASH MAY TOUCH THE GROUND AT ANY POINT. Grills of any kind are allowed, provided no fire or ash touches the ground.
FIREWOOD AVAILABLE ON-SITE
Firewood is available for purchase on site, located in the vendor area. Firewood is $20 and covers enough to fill a wagon. If you properly plan when to start your fires this amount will last you all weekend.
DO NOT bring firewood from outside the campgrounds. This is a hazard to the plants, insects & animals indigenous to the land as it could introduce other organisms into the land that were not previously there.

SERVICE ANIMAL POLICY
Our Service Animal/Dog policy is taken directly from Federal Statute and regulatory law. Our plain English policy is stated below.
* Only DOGS qualify as Service Animals under Federal Law. Emotional Support Animals are not Service Animals
* Service Animals in training are not Service Animals under Federal Law.
* Service Animals MUST be wearing a “Service Animal” marked vest at ALL times.
* The Service Animal must always be in “Full Stay” command position when not performing the service for which they have been trained.
* The Service Animal must be fully trained to urinate or defecate only on the command of their human team member.
* In order to be considered a “Service Dog” under U.S. federal law, a dog must be partnered with an individual with a disability AND perform specific, trained task work to mitigate that disability. Task work is not optional. If a dog doesn’t perform task work, it is not a Service Dog. In closing, if your Service Animal is registered, wearing a marked Service Animal Vest and fully trained; you will find our staff and attendees very supportive of your teams presence.
