Camping Trip FAQs:

The campsite is located approximately 3 hours south of Pittsburgh at the Brooklyn Heights Campground just outside the entrance to the Fernow Experimental Forest. We ask that all registrants read the rules of campground prior to signing up:

Some General FAQs (last updated 8/29/2023):

What kind of camping is it? The campsites are primitive suited for tents and hammocks. There are cabins available for rent on the premises however, you will need to reserve these on your own if you wish to have a cabin. Please let us know if you do this so we can keep you in the loop!

Are friends and family welcome? Yes, but we ask that you limit to just one guest due to limited space.

Are pets welcome? Yes, but the campground requires all pets to be on leash at all times. Please read rules pertaining to pets.

What about food and beverages? Bring your own food and drinks. Alcohol is permitted. Each campsite has a small fire pit which can be used for cooking.

What time should I arrive? Check in at the campground is at noon on Friday but you may arrive whenever you wish. Keep in mind sunset is at 6:54 this weekend. Give yourself enough time to setup your tent. Check-in is self-serve. A camp map of our reserved campsites will be provided prior to the trip.

What about parking and carpooling? Each campsite is limited to one car, but there is additional parking on the edge of the campground. We will be distributing a carpooling list prior to the camping trip to encourage folks to ride share. If you would like to attend the camping trip but do not have a car contact Tom. We will work it out!

What sort of equipment should I bring? Stuff to camp for two days! Here’s a list to start: a tent or hammock, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, pillow, layers of clothes, multiple pairs socks, rain gear, hiking boots, flashlight, toilet paper, a roll of paper towel, mess kit, wet wipes, hand sanitizer, water bottle, cooler, external cellphone battery charger, etc. Will we have a bag of tools and a first aid kit for everyone to use.

What about bathrooms? Only port-a-johns are available on the campsite. No showers. So, prepare to rough it for a day. Or feel free to cool off in the river! Running water is available near the office cabin.
