Snow Canyon, Campout

OCT. 7-11

We have reached vehicle capacity for the Snow Canyon Campout in October!!  We cannot confirm any more reservations at this time for the Campground.  If your reservation and check reached me by today, Monday, April 9, you are confirmed.  You'll be officially notified in a few days.  

Any checks that reach me tomorrow, Tuesday, will be returned.  However, we are starting a waiting list.  You may still send in the reservation form (without payment) and be added to the waiting list. I still need to know whether you'd have an RV, tent and or car.

There is not problem with capacity of you are planning to stay in a motel.  Those reservations will still be accepted.

Also, beginning June 7, you will be able to make a reservation in the general camping area at Snow Canyon through Reserve America.  That rate is $20-$25 per night, and you would still be able to participate in all the PHC group activities.

Thank you for your interest and support.  This promises to be a beautiful and exciting campout.

Red Rock Canyon, NV Campout

Hosts: Karen Wechsung and Aubrey Neal
Location: Red Rock Canyon, NV


Arrive: November 4, 2018
Depart: November 8, 2018

We are considering hosting a PHC campout at Red Rock Canyon.

It looks like there are numerous places to hike and we’ve heard it’s a very scenic area.  The facilities include pit toilets and water; there are no hook-ups or electricity.  This will be taking the place of the Thanksgiving campout; consider it a pre-Thanksgiving campout.

We are thinking of reserving the Group Campsite which accommodates 20 people/8 vehicles in RVs and tents.  If there is enough interest, we can reserve 2 group campsites.   The group sites runs $60/night; $300/week.  The cost would be split among all the campers and would need to be paid in advance.
Please send an email to kawexbus@gmail.com ASAP if you would want to attend this campout.  The group sites are going fast and we would like to reserve them if there is sufficient interest.
