Mark your calendar! The Fall 2018 Buffalo River Trail construction session is October 12-19. We'll be camping at Tyler Bend again in the main campground (sites #22-26 at no charge) so join us for a day, the weekend, or the whole week. If there is enough interest the work can continue on the 20th and maybe the 21st. If you can join us for the week, or most of it, there is an option where you can pay $50 into a fund to cover food and camp expenses and then participate in our group meals (Sunday dinner through Saturday breakfast). I've also started a 3-day option for $35. Contact me for more details. Otherwise you will need to supply your own food and cooking/eating/cleaning utensils. Regardless, everyone needs to supply their own sleeping accommodations, water containers and work gloves. Safety glasses are very beneficial for some tasks. A daypack for carrying your stuff on the trail is very useful. The Park Service supplies the tools, although you can bring your own if you'd like. The campground has potable water, flush toilets, and hot showers.Find out more
