Yes, we provide a buddy heater to each tent. You are welcome to bring your own Coleman 1lb propane tank to use as we do not provide them.

Outdoors only, but please be mindful of other guests and dispose of your butts properly. Absolutely no smoking is allowed in the tents, tipi, saloon, oasis, and speakeasy. 

 

Is there wildlife that can hurt me? 

While we are not in bear country, there are smaller critters such as snakes, spiders, and even some plants which can hurt you.  We encourage wearing enclosed shoes at all times and being aware of your surroundings when you are exploring.  For the most part, they are more afraid of you than you are of them and will steer well clear.

We have quiet hours between 10PM - 7AM.

No. We recommend keeping valuables in your car.

Does my tent have power? 

No. We have a battery or solar-powered lanterns for lighting the tents. It is a good idea to bring a battery pack if you need to charge your phone.
