For years, men have been grilling out in these woods. Feel free to do all your own cooking (BYO food, cooler, grill, etc), or if meal planning is too much and you’d rather just relax, you may purchase meal tickets when you register for the event and leave all the cooking to us.

Meal tickets are $15/meal, must be purchased in advance.

Will there be access to showers? Unfortunately, summer youth camps are already underway and the bathhouses will be closed off for our use.

Can we stay in the cabins? As summer youth camps are already in full swing, we will be unable to accommodate any lodging requests other than what you bring with you.

Can I bring my RV? You sure can. Please reach out ahead of time so we can plan accordingly. Just a heads up, no electricity, water or sewer is provided onsite.

Will I get to camp near my friends? Yes. When registering, please indicate who you’re coming with and we’ll do our best to keep you all together.

I have “a spot”… is it still there? Yes it is. Let us know about your spot, we’d love to connect.

Can I bring my own ATV? We are working with insurance on this currently. Reach out if you have a golf cart/ATV/UTV that you’d like to bring and we’ll keep you in the loop as we figure this out.

Do I need to bring my own firewood? We have a bunch of firewood already stacked throughout the woods. We also have a bunch of down trees, chainsaws and wood splitters… if you’re interested in coming up early and helping chop wood let us know.

Will the General Store be open? Yes! You’ll be able to buy things like: ice, bug spray, sun screen, rain pouchos, smore kits, coffee/cold brew, drinks, ice cream, chips, batteries, wipes, charcoal, and “FORGED” swag.

I have medical needs. Are there accommodations? If you have specific needs, let us know here.

Can I bring my son? Yes, if he is 14 years or older. We ask that sons under the age 16 remain with father/guardian at all times.

Can I bring my pet? Unfortunately no, we only allow service animals.

Is alcohol permitted? Please leave the drinks at home. This isn’t why we’re here.
