This here is a rundown of how things work out there in the woods at Pendarvis Farm. Lots of details…but I am certain you can handle it, and the info enclosed could do you good.
First we will talk about Tent Camping.
This is where the bulk of all weekend attendees at Pickathon call home. There are more than 40 acres of primitive camping and trails, which are lit at night with over 2 miles of led strands, for both safety and pure enjoyment. Because we are not a campground this is a community style set up where you basically walk into the woods and find a nice spot or two for you and your crew. The golden rule here is to be mindful and aware of your surroundings and the plants that you will be sharing the ground with, many of our forest friends are sensitive…so please just be careful. There are all types of camping sites…sites for groups large and small, quite or loud, with or without families, some with blackberries, bumps, stumps and slopes…and some without. It is our goal to accommodate everyone. This type of camping comes with the purchase of a weekend ticket, and is not available for single day tickets. We work each year through the spring and summer on campsite and trail improvements, keeping up with mother nature is no easy task, and we certainly appreciate all the help we can get. I talked in great length about our next Pendarvis Farm Work Party here.
We are now limited to Weekend Parking only as both Car Camping and RV Parking have sold out. A weekend parking ticket will be needed for any vehicle that parks for the weekend at the 2009 Pickathon. Day Tickets, and Day Parking will likely be available in May.
Between your parking and camping choice you are looking at the two of the big ways in which you are able to control your impact out at the farm.
It’s super easy to limit waste, here are a few Pickathon approved suggestions….
Take the EcoShuttle, Carpool, or ride your bike.
Reuse, then Recycle.
Pack out what you pack in.
until then..enjoy this walk in the woods, a decent look at a small portion of what Pendarvis Farm has to offer
