Getting ready for Tall Tree:

Be prepared for all weather:

We can have sun and heat and also some rain. Prepare for it all.

Be prepared for camping:

Prepare your self to wake up to world class views.

Be smart – Bring a flashlight (or two) for the evening. Bring water to stay hydrated. Sunproofing and waterproofing is smart. Bring something to keep you cozy if it gets chilly.

Be ready to walk on uneven ground:
Some nice sturdy shoes are a great idea. Gum boots are fun for puddle jumping on the off chance it rains.

The parking area is separate from the camping area.
