[NOTE: We have obtained permission to pitch tents on the "Activity Field", but all vehicles must remain in designated parking areas at all times. (Yes, this includes motorcycles) You must carry your tent and sleeping gear to your tent site, not drive your bike over to drop it off. The lawns and grassy areas at this site are very fragile because of the extremely dry climate, and this year is shaping up to be even drier than usual. If the grass is damaged, it likely will not get enough water to recover. Thanks for understanding and cooperating.]
