"Independent" Inland Venue Package:
"Independent" packages are a DAYTIME ONLY event where the event is wrapped up prior to dark. Picture arriving in the morning, setting up, guests arriving, enjoying food and refreshments under the pavilion, playing yard games, listening to music, and relaxing. As night falls, wave off your guests and spend the remainder of the evening enjoying your lodging or maybe even a campfire if you stay the night. We introduced this party because some guests just do not need us or need to spend the night. This can be had any day of the week, arrive anytime in the morning, and all guests not lodging depart at or before sundown.
PERKS: Use of a 25 X 36 foot pavilion with electricity on top of a boulder landscaped hill, fresh water spigots, picnic tables, charcoal BBQ grills, two outhouses, & garbage cans. You may bring in your own food/caterer/potluck/pig roast/music/bar/own liquor refreshments of your choosing. Use our grounds for adventuring during the day, photography, the playground, the kayaks/canoes at the dock. Every area used for your day must be cleaned completely and left free of debris and litter. Pets & ATVs are welcome, all ATVs need to be insured and waiver signed. All guests not lodging must park in the mowed field at the entrance. Parking on the grass will result in eviction. Trash can be placed in our dumpster across from the playground. Campground quiet time is at 10pm. The cost for the Inland Independent Party is: $10/guest, 100 guests MAX, $400 minimum.
