Meet at 11:30 AM Saturday at the campground entrance near Ocean City.  Driving directions and fees will be announced when available.

This car camp is located in Grays Harbor, which is now open to Phase 2, which limits group hiking and camping to five people.  Carpooling will likely be either prohibited or discouraged.  Saturday evening we'll have smores around a campfire.  We'll have the option to watch the sunset from the nearby beach.  On the way back to camp after Saturday's hike, we will pass by the Ocean Shores grocery store, where food can be bought for Saturday's camp dinner and Sunday's camp breakfast.  Near there is a Subway and a McDonald's, for those preferring fast food.
