Camp Boggy Creek is a children's camp with a large barn, and we are responsible for leaving the grounds in excellent condition for the next group of campers.   No arrivals before 10:00 AM on Friday.  Primitive camping is available for no additional fee, and you must provide your own horse containment.  Dogs okay must be on a leash at all times, and you must pick up after your pet.  There are no electrical hookups available. 

Friday Dinner & Saturday Meals

Each attendee should bring a covered dish to share for dinner on Friday.  A microwave is available to heat up food.  Ride management will provide the meat.  Continental breakfast will be provided on Saturday morning, and grilled cheese sandwiches will be available from for lunch.  Anyone that stays over on Saturday night is on their own for dinner.

Amenities

The Ride

Seminole State Forest

Camp Boggy Creek is adjacent to Seminole State Forest, and riders will enjoy the lovely forest trails.  We'll also cross over into the Wekiva trails.

Trail Marking

Once again, Jackie and Stephen Baker and Fran Wohnsigl and friends will do an awesome job marking the trails.  

Trail Conditions

The ride largely consists of one- and two-track trails through the lovely forest.  You will go along gravel roads in a few areas, and there is generally a grassy space on the sides sufficient for barefooters.  Trail conditions will be updated as the ride date nears.
