Join us for a weekend of camping on California's Central Coast!

We'll camp and hike near Morro Bay

 

Campground:  The campground has running water, flush toilets, and showers (for a few dollars).   Campground location will be emailed to participants.  We have limited parking available at the campground averaging three people per parking spot.  Our spots will be allocated to carpools of 3 or more per vehicle, then, space permitting, 2 or more per vehicle. Overflow parking is available about 1000 feet from out campsites.

Food:  Bring your own food and beverages for this trip.  Hot water will be available at breakfast and at dinner.

What’s included in the trip fee?  Campsite, hot water at breakfast and dinner,  warm dish water with dish soap, hand soap and a few other hand & dish hygiene materials. 


Do I have to help out at camp? Yes.  Each person will help out in two ways at mealtime (breakfast or dinner).  Tasks involve either keeping the thermoses full of hot water for the duration of the meal, or taking trash from our campsite to the dumpster each time our trash cans fill, or setting up water to wash dishes after the meal.

Itinerary: 
Friday:  You may arrive at camp after 5:00 PM to set up camp.  Potluck (supplemented with warm soup) will be from 6 PM to 7:30 PM, then 15 minutes of warm water and dish soap for washing dishes. Materials for s’mores provided once the campfire gets going.


Saturday: Please join us at the hot water campsite for your breakfast.

We'll hike in Montana de Oro State Park and in the Los Osos area.  All hikes are optional.

We'll have another potluck dinner, this time supplemented with local pizza followed by 15 minutes of warm water and dish soap for you to wash your dishes. If s'mores materials are left over from Friday, we'll have s'more!


Sunday:  Please join us at the hot water campsite for your breakfast.  

We'll pack up camp by 11 AM and head home.
 

If you’re new to camping:  Trip leaders Kenadi and Rolf (and others to be named soon!), will be happy to help.  Let us know if you want pointers (a list of things to bring, advice setting up your tent) or if you have other concerns. Though it will be cold at night, good sleeping bags and sleeping pads can be rented here in the LA area so that you’ll be comfortably warm.

Alcohol:  If you want to drink alcohol on this trip, bring some. But if you like to drink to excess, please skip this trip.


Disclosures: 
1. This trip is a fund-raiser for the 20's and 30's section.  It's not raising a lot and if happens to turn a profit, partial refunds won't be issued.

2. Hikes will be selected once weather conditions are known.  There will be at least one easy hike. All hikes will be on trail, and led by 2 (or more) Sierra Club leaders. 

3. Children allowed on this trip.  I (Rolf) will bring my 4-year old and my 2-year old.  If you'd like advice about camping with a toddler, please ask.
