Camping at Pickathon: A Pendarvis Farm primer.
With the first big Work Party of 2011 under our belts, we'd like to take this opportunity to realign ourselves with life out at the farm. A beautiful 80 acres of Oregon woods, Pendarvis plays host to some of the most amazing tent camping and trail hiking (day or night) that the Northwest has to offer.
Currently both Car Camping (camping near your car) and RV Parking are sold-out. This should not deter in any way, as there still are ample Weekend Parking and tent camping spaces available throughout Pendarvis Farm. Since many of the sites are a haul from your car, we've worked hard the past few years in order to help make things easier. Gear shuttles are a big part of this solution - their job is to help folks cart gear into the woods, once they have located a site where they intend on setting up camp. Beyond that we have several seasoned pro's and Pickathon volunteers to help find specific sites that could be needed (for families, disabilities, groups, etc..)
The camping is great, the trails are great... and you have no reason not to want to make this experience your own.
Check out the 2010 Pendarvis Farm Site Map for and easy reference of what to expect for first timers at Pickathon.
