Novice campers are invited to join the Rangers at Elk Knob State Park for an enjoyable night of camping on Saturday, July 1st beginning no earlier than 1:30 pm. This is the twelfth year that Elk Knob has participated in the campout which introduces families to the joy of camping without the expense of buying equipment. It is a great event for two main reasons: it allows participants a night of supervised camping at Elk Knob State Park, and we provide the tents, dinner, s'mores, interesting programs to fill the night with entertainment, and breakfast. Participants should bring their own snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, and their own sleeping bags or blankets. 

The campout is free, but REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED by June 26.  

Adults must accompany children. Children must be 6 years and older. Pets are not allowed. Programs start at 3:00 p.m. Call the park at 828 297-7261 for more information.
