This year there will be PRE BOOKED camping available for tents and small units next to the Water Valley Community Hall – weather permitting. Spots will be assigned on a first come, first served basis in advance. 

In the event of seriously wet weather, no vehicles will be allowed onto the grounds. However, tent camping will be permitted, providing tents and equipment are carried onto the site. Nearer the day we will see what arrangements can be made for small RV’s. IF the weather is so bad that it is impractical to camp, We will contact you on Friday morning so I must have your contact number. Cheques will then be cancelled.

The cost for camping is $20.00 per unit per night payable by cheque or cash in advance and made out to :
