How late can I arrive?
This is a great question, and the answer is extremely important. Due to county ordinances, we cannot, under any circumstances allow anyone IN or OUT of the gates after 10 PM EST. It's very, very important to plan your trip carefully, as this is non-negotiable. (I know, we all love our negotiating, but we simply cannot in this instance.) The gates can be opened at first light, but between 10 PM EST and first light, they absolutely must remain closed. Parking outside the gate is prohibited, we want to be good neighbors.
Will I be roughing it?
That really depends on you. Some bring RV's, others, elaborate tent set ups, and still others pop up trailers. We also offer the 'Leave it to us' option, where we will set up a tent for you with two sleeping bags, and two camp chairs. There are rental options for campers if you wish. Contact Registration (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Is there cell phone reception?
Most providers have decent signal strength throughout the grounds. T-Mobile is the spottiest.
4 days in the woods with no showers? Say Whut?
No. The shower areas are equipped with hot water.
I'm single. Am I still welcome?
Yes! Singles of all gender identities are welcome. There are meet and greets in which you can mingle and meet people.
There's a bonfire each night; what better way to bond than clothing-optional S'mores?
Is it hard to meet others at camp?
We provide several themed parties with ice breaker fun to assist attendees in getting to know each other. Another excellent way to meet people is to volunteer! We have lots of fun 'chores' (ie: gate keeping, party setup and clean up, working the registration booth) for attendees to volunteer for. It's a very easy way to meet others.
I'm a swinger, not kinky. Is this a good event for me?
Yes. One of the most fundamental goals of this event is to encourage acceptance, tolerance, and even knowledge within the broad realm of sexuality. Class/Seminars/Demos are geared along three tracks. Kink, Sexuality, and Spirituality. We are BDSM sex positive, and swinging kink positive. Hell, we are really just a positive group. It's all about an atmosphere that crackles with the multitude of possibilities.
I'm solely into BDSM. My partner and I are monogamous, will we be out of place?
Nope. See the above answer. And know that registering at the event is ALL the participation required. You and your S.O. will not be pressured to have sex with others, or play with others. It's possible it will be offered but a polite decline is NOT seen as rude in this realm.
I'm Gender Queer, Trans, CD, Non-Binary. Will I be out of place? I only see het folx on the website.
No-You won't. And no, you don't. Many of the photos on our website show folx with those same sexual identities. If you don't see it, it's because photos don't show people somehow "being" their sexual identity. You see them just being campers, being themselves, and having fun. Hell, we are a staff full of the entire spectrum of sexual identities. :)
What's the dress code?
The dress code is as varied as the attendees. Get all dolled up in your best fetish wear, or just throw on some suntan lotion.You must be vanilla appropriate when leaving the property. The local community is very good about leaving us to our wonderland on the grounds, please be kind when you enter their space.
If you are running around nude (YUM!) please be sure to carry a small towel. It is unhygienic to sit on anything without first protecting it from your sexy ass.
Where can I park my car? Can I keep it at my campsite?
No. We have several 'parking areas' throughout the grounds, but parking at your tent is not an option. We do this for the safety of ALL our campers.
Am I eating out of a cooler all weekend?
Only if you choose to. We usually have a kink/sexuality friendly food vendor on premises, and there are many restaurant choices offsite within 20 minutes if you’d like to go offsite to eat. The campground also has ice available for purchase.
Can I bring in my own firewood?
No-it's illegal to transport firewood onto the site, due to some nasty little bug that hitches rides on it and affects the tree population. The campground offers firewood for sale at a very reasonable price.
What if it rains?
It's time for the slip and slide? Obviously, while we dutifully do a 'Perfect Weather Dance' on the stroke of midnight the night before camp opens we can never truly promise perfect weather. We've had camps without a drop of rain, and we've had camps with showers. Each and every time, kinksters either find fun out in the warm rain, or slip into one of the play spaces and play inside. We ARE camping, and nature CAN happen.
I'm really new to kink. Is this the event for me?
Yes! Aside from the fun we hope people have, we are dedicated to education and exploration. From the newest kinkster to the long term veteran folx, all are welcome. We've compiled a group of the most outgoing, friendly folx ever to hit the kink scene!
How do I 'reserve' a piece of play equipment in the play space?
You don't! Play equipment is for ALL to use. If it's not in use at the moment, consider it available for your use. We ask that all attendees be considerate of each other with regards to time spent on equipment. While there is no 'time limit', we do ask that folx don't drop their toys at a station and wander off to socialize for an hour. I know you want to make sure you get THAT piece, but an unused station provides SO much less eye candy. And we do do love our eye candy.
I really don't want to stay in a tent. Can I bring my camper?
Absolutely. Be sure to register EARLY, as there are limited sites that will support an RV. We also have a VERY limited number of indoor lodgings.
I really don't want to camp at all. Is there a hotel nearby?
Yes. However, we strongly encourage camping at the campground, simply because the ability to do as you please when you please is something everyone should experience. We are blessed to be hosted on grounds that provide quite a few options for those who simply can't abide by the thought of a tent. Please see above.
Can I bring my camera?
Absolutely not. One of the most important factors in events such as these is privacy. We want everyone to feel, once inside the gates, that they are free to roam at will. Cameras would greatly hinder that. We do have staff photographers who take approved photos, of only those who opt in to photos. :)
