The solitude of Tipi
Tipi in winter
Tipi Setting: Tipi sits in a large forested space on a hill-top very close to the stream and stream-side trail below.
Tipi Features: Tipi does include 4 elevated platforms best for sitting and congregating, an indoor stone lined firepit,
a picnic table outside, an outside firepit complete with steel fire ring and two benches. See Tipi Details below for what is included and what you should bring.
Intended Use: Tipi is intended to be a congregation area only. It does not have an ozane to catch rain from the open top or a floor or wall liner. It is sitting
on the earth with a small stone surrounded fire pit in the middle. It's intended use is for congregation while sitting around a small interior fire. Ample space outside of the
tipi exists to put up a tent for sleeping arrangements. It is not recommended that you sleep in the tipi, esp. with the fire pit in the center or potential for rain, however,
air mattresses are available (and a high capacity pump) if you wish to sleep in the tipi or bring your own.
Cautions:Large fires are not allowed in the tipi as the risk of catching the tipi on fire exists. Small, contained fires only. It is also not recommended that you sleep
in the tipi due to rain / water issues and smoke / fire issues. Our advice is that you bring a tent and place it outside for sleeping.
Other: Tipi does not have electricity or lighting -- bring your own lanterns, either propane or battery based, as well as flash lights.
The campground Shower House is located just outside of the Lodge House in the red cargo building.
