We will be camping in one of the 250 acre fields that we use for the bluegrass festival. It is flat (bottomland), has enough rocks under the turf to prevent RV's from sinking even if it has rained a lot and to make driving wimpy tent stakes "interesting". We have a bunch of strategically placed port-a-johns and garbage drums in the field to take care of refuse...

We have not yet put in RV hook ups in the field. They are planned, but are not there yet. If you need power, bring a genset. If you bring a genset, plan to turn it off at night so folks can sleep.

You can have campfires in the field, but you will have to remove any fire rings when you leave (they are he** on the bushhog...).

We have a shower facility in the middle of the field that we will be camping in with plenty of hot water.

Folks who would prefer to have a cabin, a motel room, or rooms in the old farmhouse will need to make individual reservations with the Lodge for them in addition to making Trailride/Rally reservations. We'll have them deduct Saturday's supper from your reservation so that you aren't paying twice for it (rooms at the Lodge come with three meals a day...).

You can bring your dog. The Lodge fee for pets only applies if you get a room at the Lodge, not if you are camping out.
