Since 2005, thousands of people from across the nation have come together the fourth Saturday of June to participate in the Great American Backyard Campout in support of Great Outdoors Month. The Campout not only raises awareness of the benefits of camping as a way to connect people with nature, but it also reinforces National Wildlife Federation's Be Out There campaign. This event is an easy way for friends, families and children to connect with nature, sleep under the stars and create memories of outdoor experiences. Jefferson Memorial Forest wants to host the biggest campout ever! We’ll provide the campfire, s’mores, night hikes, and activities, you provide your breakfast and a tent. If you wish to bring your dinner to cook over the open fire, please arrive at 5:30 PM. In the morning, you will have the day to explore the Forest, meet the animals in the Environmental Education Center, or go fishing at Tom Wallace with free fishing poles provided at the Welcome Center.
FEE: $25.00 per family up to 4; $5.00 per additional family member; $15.00 per platform tent rental. Pre-Registration required; call 502.368.5404.
