- We have several different types of lodging to suit your family’s needs from tents to heated/AC cabins that sleep 2-8 adults. We even have two ADA-accessible cabins with internal restrooms and showers!
Are pets allowed?
- Unfortunately no. As much as we would love to see your furry friends at camp, they are too disruptive to the natural environment and should stay at home when you visit.
Is alcohol allowed?
- No. As this is a campground primarily geared for families involved in Scouting, we do not allow alcohol.
Is smoking allowed?
- No. As this is a campground primarily geared for families involved in Scouting, we do not allow smoking.
Can I drive into the campsites?
- Not at this time, but there are several parking lots within walking distance. If you are renting a cabin, you may be able to drive up and park next to your rental. Please see cabin details in tentaroo for your specific rental.
Is there a map available?
- Yes! You can view it HERE. Due to COVID-19, we will not have any available at camp, and you are encouraged to print out the one liked on this page for your reference.
What is there to do?
- Due to COVID-19, we have closed our activity areas and are only operating as a campground until conditions improve. There are several hiking trails built around camp, and if you are feeling adventurous, you can even hike all the way to the Clavey River!
Are fires allowed in camp?
- It depends on the current conditions and allowances made by Cal Fire. You can check on conditions and see if you are allowed to have a fire HERE (Search for Long Barn, CA on the map)
- Please remember that if fires are allowed during your visit, to only have flames no higher than 2 feet and only in the concrete/metal rings we have provided.
- Also, HERE are some tips on leaving no trace when setting up a campfire.
Can we use the shooting ranges or climbing wall on-site?
- Not at this time. Due to COVID-19, we have had to close all of our program areas and ask that you stay away from them. Under normal circumstances, these could be open and available for rent.
Are there wild animals around?
- Yes! The Sierra Nevada Mountains are full of life from fish to birds, and even some mountain lions and bears. For this reason, we ask that you store your food in an animal-proof container away from where you sleep. Your car is also another good option. We also ask that you throw away your trash each night before bed, otherwise, you will have some unwanted visitors!
What should we do with our trash?
- Please throw your trash into the provided dumpsters by the dining hall. Please do not overfill the dumpsters. If they are too full, let the ranger know and they will assist you in getting rid of your trash.
We reserved a campsite, what time should we arrive/leave?
- Please arrive no earlier than 3pm, and please be packed out of your site by 11am. You are still welcome to enjoy the rest of camp once you are packed and out of your site!
Can we help with a service project?
- Definitely! You are welcome and encouraged to help with a service project that you feel comfortable with. We also host regular work weekends, where we work on camp improvements. Please contact Camping Director, Anthony Burson-Thomas for more details.
Are masks required on-site and when?
- Yes, masks are required by everyone while they are outside of their own tent/cabin. Please follow the current social distancing protocols when interacting with others outside of your cohort.
Can we use restrooms other than the one assigned to us?
- Unfortunately not during the pandemic. To ensure we have good contact tracing, and to limit as much contact as possible between cohorts, we have had to restrict each campsite to their own restroom. If you have a disability that requires the use of specific restrooms on-site, please let us know and we will make sure you are accommodated appropriately.
