    Spreadsheet Link

    We are proud to be part of the Old Dominion Hangers.

    The Park is less than an hour south of DC and hour or so north of Richmond and less than 2 hours from Charlottesville.

    Directions
    Link to Park website

    We will be hanging in the Oak Ridge Campground. 'A' loop, Centered around sites A 25-35. 'B' loop is also available. No reservations are available this year

    Link to campground page

    The park is hammock friendly and can accomodate up to four hangers per site. The caviat is just two cars per site. There is overflow parking nearby. The park has a 1.5" strap requirement but double wrapping the tree counts. Trees must be 6" in diameter.

    Costs
    There is a $10 fee per car.
    Each site is $20 per night, all paid on the honor system at the campground. If we group up with around 4 hangers per site, that works out to $5 per person a night.

    The sites are on a first come / first serve basis. This time of year the park is fairly empty.

    There are several hiking trails through the park and other things to do.


    Food
    Saturday breakfast. - Yojimbo will be cooking French Toast for all. Additions will be welcome.

    Saturday's dinner - Potluck. In the past food was out of this world (sorta like a nova).

    Don't forget to add your contributions to the sign-up page.

    In years past the temps have ranged from the 20s to 50s. One year we were in shorts. Welcome to VA weather.

    Here is a map of the park. Please note the campground is at the other end of the park from the entrance. It takes about 25 minutes just to get through the park.

    Here is a map of where we will be Oak Ridge Campground. The target sites are indicated. Since there are no reservations, its first come first serve. This has not been a problem in the past. As you can see there is still plenty of room to spread out.

    Finally here is a link to a PDF of the park so you can see the various trails one can hike or bike during the day.
