New Chill and Quiet Zones
We’re quite excited to share some big news! The Lakes of Fire Board and Leads have worked with our excellent hosts at Lucky Lake to add space to the event.
Two more camping areas will be available this year in a new space north of Pines Road: the Chill Zone and the Quiet Zone.
Survival Guide and Vehicle Policy Updates
Here are a few highlights:
- Parking and Unloading times will be enforced. DPW is asking everyone to honor the 2 hour time limit for unloading your vehicles when coming to camp.
- Car Camping this year is completely restricted to campers with a medical need. To car camp, you will need a Car Camping Permit from the Parking Department.
- There will be a tow truck this year. DPW will enforce their vehicle policy with it. They aren’t kidding. Vehicle owners will be billed for the tow.
Check out the updated Survival Guide for all the details.
