Camping, Lodging, RV & Hotel
- Your SCARR registration fee does include four nights of primitive camping. However, please note that electric sites or bunkhouse accommodations will NOT be included. Should you need a site or bunkhouse, you will need to pay for this directly through Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area prior to the event or at the office when you sign in. It is HIGHLY recommended to reserve a spot before you attend the event. Often times, the electric sites and bunkhouses have already been booked in advance. You may contact their office on Friday - Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to reserve a spot. See below for more details.
- In addition to electric sites and bunkhouses, there are several primitive camping areas scattered around the park. This year we will have two designated campsites: Camp Mabey and Old Camp. Camp Mabey will be quiet and suitable for families and Old Camp will host the Fun Zone. While most people like to camp near one of these designated campsites, attendees are more than welcome to utilize the parks other camp sites. *** We ask that if you use another location to please be respectful of other clubs’ camp sites and leave the area cleaner than you found it. Please be respectful and help us keep the park clean!
- RV's are welcome at Barnwell Mountain at any designated campsite. The park has 8 premium sites, full hook up spots with electricity and water located at the front part of the park. An additional 19 RV spots located across from the premium sites with electricity only are available and 11 of them are now 50 amp. A dump station is available that anyone is welcome to use at no charge.
RV Premium and Electric sites only will NOT be included in the registration fee. You may contact the Barnwell office from Friday – Sunday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to reserve and pay for your RV site through Barnwell.
- Five bunkhouses will be available and will also need to be rented directly from Christy at the office. Each bunkhouse is equipped with a single and bunk bed, heat and air conditioning, a picnic table, swing, and grill. There is no water or plumbing; however, they are only a short walk from the bathroom facility. These bunkhouses are always in HIGH demand. If you are thinking about booking on of these, it is highly recommended you do it as soon as possible.
