What to Bring
Our objective is to eliminate the stress of packing and preparation. Our motto is all you need to bring are some weather-appropriate clothes your toothbrush, and an attitude of experiencing all that Mother Nature has to offer.
Food & Drink
- Bring your own food and drinks – you will have a mini fridge in your cabins but space is limited so you might need a cooler. Let us handle your meals, with our Heat and Serve Conestoga Meals, available for purchase when booking. View the menu here.
- Area restaurants and cafes are minutes away – view nearby dining options here
- Cooking and eating utensils – Some grilling utensils are provided but you must bring your own eating and serving utensils. Including bowls, silverware, napkins/paper towels, and anything else you need for eating and cooking.
- Ice – ice can be purchased in Hastings or in nearby Fairfield. No ice is available at the campground.
Even in warmer months, the temperature can drop in the evening so be sure to bring warmer clothes than you think you’ll need!
