Looking ahead - 2013 WGA Campout Event
Spring is just around the corner, so it’s time to start planning for the WGA Spring Campout Event. This year, the WGA has joined forces with the Minnesota Geocaching Association in hosting an interstate campout!
You don’t need to camp to attend. Book a motel or just stop in for a day. The WGA has reserved both group campsites. You may also reserved your own campsite, but they are going fast.
The campout will be held at Interstate State Park, which is one of the most scenic parks in the entire state. You’ll see fascinating glacial potholes and the steep, narrow gorge called The Dalles of the St. Croix. With nine miles of trails, there is plenty to see.
Mark your calendar for May 17-19.
There will be plenty to keep you busy and entertained for the entire weekend. We’re hosting a campfire social at the group campsite on Friday and Saturday nights. Saturday you will be able to show off your rustic culinary skills in the Dutch Oven Cook-off, or join the Interstate Tug-O-War.
There will be a presentation by DNR Natural Resource Educator Julie Fox on Saturday Morning. Julie will be explaining the unique geology of the area as well as the history of Interstate Park.
Join us on Saturday night for night caches! They blink. They twinkle. They glow in the dark. There is no telling what you may find. Anyone is invited to place a night cache, so get going!
Several new caches will be placed in and around the park in addition to the dozens already within three miles. If you are really ambitious, there are over 20 caches along the Gandy Dancer trail starting less than a mile from the park entrance.
Other activities at Interstate Park include hiking, biking, swimming, canoeing and kayaking, rock climbing and fishing. You can also visit the Ice Age Interpretive Center or pick up a souvenir at the gift shop.
You’ll have the opportunity to purchase limited edition WGA/MnGCA Interstate Campout apparel as well as WGA Geocoins, pathtags and Groundspeak merchandise at the Interstate Shelter on Saturday.
