Disclaimer: The club and its members take no responsibility and will not be held responsible for any injuries or accidents that may occur during club events. Outdoor sports are inherently dangerous and accidents will happen. By joining the club or participating in any events posted on the GayOutdoors web page you are taking responsibility for your own safety and well-being. Anyone with an internet connection can post a trip on the GayOutdoors web site. It is your responsibility to determine if this person has the experience and competence to lead the trip.

Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.

Don’t have a tent?  Don’t worry, I have extras.


Join other GO members and me for a relaxing time camping (or rent a rustic cabin or train caboose) at the base of the Shenandoah National Park just 2 hours from DC and 2-1/2 from Richmond!  Forget the crowded campsites in Shenandoah NP and join us for some awesome campsites.

Bring your marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate for s'mores.  Wake up to the smell of bacon cooking in the crisp autumn air.

Reservations; for tent, trailer, cabins or train caboose.  I’ll be reserving a large camp site for Friday and Saturday.  Stay one night or both nights.

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

Use your favorite map/navigation method to 2010 Madison Road Stanardsville, VA 22973.

Reservations; for tent, trailer, cabins or train caboose.  I’ll be reserving a large camp site for Friday and Saturday.  Stay one night or both nights.

I haven't heard back from Heavenly Acres, so I think they are out of business/sold since no reply to my email, the online reservation isn't working and phone number is disconnected. So, we'll camp at Lewis Mountain Campground, in Shenandoah National Park. It is the same place we camp last year which was campsite #31
