CAMP GROUND FACILITIES:   Kitchen  (with stove and fridge) , pavilion/dining area. Numerous fire rings and picnic tables all available in the group camp area. Campground also includes lake stocked with fish, swimming pool, very clean restrooms with showers and a campground market.  Ice and firewood are available.  Wood prices are $5 a bundle.  (Yes we can bring our own wood as long as we don’t get crazy about it)  For more detailed information, please visit the Deep River Campground web posting.

GROUP CAMP GROUND:  The group campground has already been reserved for tent camping.  We already have the entire area so there is no need to call and reserve a particular spot.  The group camp site comprises the area from the entrance parking lot, around the group pavilion and around the southeast side of the lake.  Appear to be some trees for hammock dwellers in the far southeastern corner.

RESTRICTIONS:  There are very few restrictions but as usual we need to employ common sense and normal courtesy.   There are some long-term residents living in the RV park so we will need to be cognizant of our late night carousing.  In addition, the camp owner does not want vehicles on the grassy field.  For those people trailering their rigs, please unload your rig in the parking lot at the top of the hill and we will marshal vehicles and trailers around the maintenance shed located at the entrance to the campground.
