8 campsites and 2 original Mongolian Gers.
The season for the camp sites is from June 1st to October 15 and the Gers are all 12 months.
Pets allowed, toilets on site, campfires permitted when burn ban is not in place.
This being the 4th year, things have gotten a little out of hand. So let's regergitate some things and make sure everyone understands how it is.
If you aren't capable of practicing the 5 P's, then you need to book somewhere else. Proper Preperation Prevents Poor Performance.
If you can't get here and have your camp set up by 8:00PM, showing respect to the other Hipcampers that are already set up and enjoying the PEACE AND QUIET, then you need to book somewhere else or don't come until the following morning.
No driving down to the campsites/the lake after 8::00PM. Period. Communicate with me. If you leave Portland at 5:00 PM with the intention of spending the night in Heaven then you need to alter your plans.
No more than 4 adults at each campsite.
I am almost to the point of saying no BIG DOGS. If you got big dogs, my suggestion is you go book someplace else. Talk to me. It is a given they willl need to be on a tethered throughout your time in Heaven. Take them for walks along the lake, not having them run thru everyone elses camp sites. No Yappers, no barking dogs, no yippers, no pain in the butts.
Why would you drive by 46 grocery stores and forget to bring ice?
No music. I have changed quiet time to 9:00 PM. You need to listen to music I suggest you start a band or become a DJ.
What I want folks to get out of being here, whether they are camping or staying in the Gers is just to “take a break”.
Relax, appreciate, assess and just listen.
I hope what you hear is the sound of life and of course all the Angels that make up this special piece of Heaven.
The chipmunks, the squirrels, all the different birds, the eagles, the osprey, the fish jumping, the deer roaming, the timber martins running thru the trees, the snowshoe rabbits and the occasional black bear.
Then there is the silence.
The best part of “Heaven”.
So, while you are here, take a deep breath, close your eyes at the appropriate moment and ask yourself, am I on the right path?
Is what I am doing fulfilling me?
Am I showing my family and friends how much I love them?
Do I really need all that crap I got?
Where do I go from here?
My intention was for each one you to not just go camping, or to stay in a Mongolian Ger but to have an “Experience” that just might lead you to a more fulfilling and happier life.
