Accommodations and Photo Gallery


Accommodations are rustic (outhouse facilities; no running water), but they're comfy. If you prefer to tent, there are places to set up camp. If rustic living isn't your thing, we can recommend local hotels and resorts.

Beds are available in our cabins (shown below) on a first-come/first-served basis, free of charge. You will need to bring your own bedding (sleeping bag and pillow).

One of our free blacksmith classes for high school students, cooking lunch with their new hand-forged hot dog forks.
The only requirements to get free classes if you're a teen (aged 14-18): show some enthusiasm for blacksmithing,
and be on time at the boat landing!
