Hope you can join us!
Twin Peaks Campground has running water in the restrooms,
solar showers, no hookups and no reservations required. There is a $12 per vehicle park entrance fee, good for 7 days, $12 per night camping, $6 with geezer pass. There are 204 sites and the campground is not heavily used, so chances are excellent for a nice shady site.
More information can be found at: http://www.nps.gov/orpi
Please call or email Lynda Jerome, (928) 772- firstname.lastname@example.org, and let her know what you'd like to bring to the Thanksgiving feast.
