Camping

The FAR site provides an excellent place to camp.  This site is cleared of brush and is relatively flat, which allows you to pitch tents and have campfires.  The site also has potable water for dishwashing.  Since the site is located in a valley shielded by two mountains blocking nearby city lights, the night is unusually clear with little light polution promoting stargazing.

FAR Camping Rules

 

  1. Drive slowly on the dirt portion of the East-end of Munsey Rd. to prevent dust.

  2. Park and camp on the East side of the viewing bunkers and North of the cargo containers.

  3. Bring camping gear and clothing appropriate for the weather.

  4. Bring plenty of drinking water.

  5. It is advisable to not sleep directly on the ground. Sleep in a tent or on a cot. (There are snakes, spiders, rats, and scorpions about.)

  6. Control wrappers, bags, and paper so they don't fly away.

  7. Pick up trash and take it home with you.

  11. Bring your own wood for a camp fire.

  12. Do not burn any wood found on the site unless it is marked as fire wood.
