💩 Toilets

We provide all the poopey things. Toilet paper + flushing toilets. Yay!

We do not provide showers.

💦 Waters

There is potable water flowing on site, but we can't guarantee that it will be enough for everyone or that the quality will be the best. It’s a burn. Plan to bring your own water for drinking.

🌻 Weather

Expect sun and clouds with a chance of rain. Warm clothes for night. Sometimes when it rains here, it absolutely pours.

🏕️ Packing List

Toilet paper for the toilets is provided!

Apart from that, please practice self-reliance.

Please don’t bring alcohol, anything smokeable, camp fires, or glitter 🙏

Camping is in the forest and there is ample shade. Arrive early for the flattest and most shaded spots 🪨

🔍 Internet & Phone

There is cell network of varying speeds throughout the site. You should be able to get an SMS, basic call, or email out at the least.

🔥 Absolutely No Fire

No fires allowed. It's dry season in a verdant forest, fires are prohibited during this time and we don't want police knocking at the gate or to burn down the mountainside.

No candles or campfires, but gas cook stoves as are permitted!
