The meeting will be held at Lake Creek Camp, in Logan Valley, on the south side of the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness area. (Purple dot.) Elevation is 5200 feet. Nights will be cold!
Driving distances: 35 miles from John Day, 40 miles from Prairie City, 65 miles from Burns.
All roads to the Camp are paved, 2-lane; except the last 2 miles to the Camp are high quality gravel,
suitable for any car. Nearest reliable gas stations are John Day, Prairie City, and Burns;
gas availability and hours in Seneca are unreliable.
The main lodge is furnished with tables and chairs
for meetings and meals.
Five straight-sided cabins (with propane heat) sleep up to 8 each, and five A-frame cabins (unheated) sleep up to 6 each. (The straight-sided cabins have been allocated for women, and the A-frame cabins have been allocated for men; there are no co-ed cabins.) The Camp furnishes mattresses; guests furnish their own warm bedding and towels. Tent and RV space is available, but there are no RV hookups. The two bath houses -- showers with lots of hot water and flush toilets -- have recently been renovated. Pit toilets are available for use during the night when electric power and running water are not available.
Electric power is provided by a local generator.
Use of hairdryers should be minimized.
Only a limited number of outlets are available; if you need to charge camera batteries,
please bring a plug-strip to help share the available outlets with others.
The generator will be off between 10pm and 6 am daily. Bring a flashlight!
