There really isn't any website - Kent runs it by himself.
What you saw in the email is the extent of it.
Now, here is "the rest of the story..." =-)
Here is the CSC for the location - you can get the map info from there:
The main observing area is very 'Social" - and has restricted horizons.
That is where Robert and Allen usually set up.
I usually set up down a ways on the southern end of the cedars. I get
a nice southern horizon, but am more restricted to the north.
Make sure you are there before 500 PM on Friday - they always have a
big spaghetti dinner and the food is pretty good.
On Saturday, there is a couple of grills set up and they cook up a
bunch of burgers and dogs and everyone brings pot luck fixings to
Then it is followed by a raffle and they usually have top notch prizes.
The camp bathrooms are a little ways away and have hot showers. They
aren't the greatest facilities, but are an improvement over the old
building that was shut down 2 yrs ago. There is a port-a-john close
to the star party, and tons of trees and bushes to accommodate late
night visits =-)
You'll have a lot of fun, be full for 3 days afterwards, and if the
weather cooperates, you'll have some nice dark and steady skies.
