Cost per campsite for the event (Thursday thru Sunday) is $30.00 for non-Compton members and $25.00 for Compton members. Camping fees are simply per campsite for the duration of the event regardless of your date of arrival. There are no sites available with power and water hook ups for trailers and motor homes. Trailers and motor homes too large for designated camping sites will need to purchase two sites. 

The Club provides portable toilet accommodations, hand washing stations plus men’s and women’s showers. On-site ice, bottled water and other drinks are available to purchase throughout the event at the campground concessions area. Well water is also available. See below for breakfast, lunch and dinner options.

Early arrivals may camp on club grounds the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before the event at a cost of $10.00 per campsite per night.

Camp sites are approximately 25’ X 25’. Please keep your possessions within your site. Only one vehicle should be parked in or adjacent to your campsite. If your party has additional vehicles, they can be parked in the upper parking lot behind registration. The intent is to reduce congestion and make sure driveways have sufficient room to allow fellow campers access and egress.

If you wish to reserve a campsite for a friend, just pay for it when you check in. Place the campsite marker on an object within the campsite so others know it is reserved for someone else. Coordinate with your friend, upon arrival they can tell registration personnel their campsite has already been paid for.

When campers register, each site will receive a coupon for one free bundle of firewood. Additional firewood may be purchased at the cost of $3.00/bundle. Please make sure fire pits are filled in before you leave and that trash and litter has been properly disposed of.

Pets are allowed on club grounds but must be kept on a leash at all times. Excluding special permit animals, pets are not allowed in the Clubhouse, vendor areas, pavilion or archery ranges.
