- Friday night dinner
Lodging is not included in the ticket price. If you are up for camping, we encourage attendees to stay at Black Rock Mountain State Park, located just 10 minutes north of Downtown Clayton. It’s Georgia's highest state park, and it encompasses some of the most outstanding scenery in Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. We’ve booked a limited amount of walk-in campsites and a primitive group camp that you can reserve when you register. Details on those options are below! The park also has many incredible individual campsites that you can book on your own.
Local time: 11:00 AM
However, It is NOT mandatory to stay at Black Rock Mountain State Park. If you live locally or would rather stay in a local hotel or bed and breakfast, there are many great options for that as well! The event activities will take place in Downtown Clayton and at Black Rock Mountain State Park, so you’ll want to be within convenient driving distance to those two landmarks. See our event website for more details!
Lodging options at Black Rock Mountain State Park:
SOLD OUT 2 Bedroom Cottages: $380/cabin There are two cottages at Black Rock Mountain State Park available for rent. Each cottage has 2 bedrooms with two beds in each room (4 beds total, max 8 people). SOLD OUT
Primitive Pioneer Campsite: $10/per car - book through event registration
This is a beautiful group camp area nestled down a ¾ mile mountain road in the park. The road can sometimes become rutted out, so a high clearance vehicle or confident driving skills in a low clearance vehicle are helpful! There are adirondack style bunk buildings, an indoor gathering space with a small kitchen area. You can also set up tents in this area. There is water and electricity in the group gathering space, but no heating or air conditioning. There are nice pit toilets and an outdoor unheated shower. You may also use the heated showers in the main campground area, but they are not in walking distance from the group site.
Non-electric Walk-In Campsites: max 6 people/2 cars per site/2 tents - book through event registration
This a cluster of wonderful walk-in sites. They offer lots of privacy and are nestled in beautiful forest. Each site has a tent pad, fire ring, and picnic table. The campsites are very close to the parking area, so it’s a short walk to (75 ft to 600 ft). There is water and a bathhouse with electricity also conveniently located in the parking area. The tent pads can fit two small/medium sized tents.
Electric Tent/Car/RV Sites - We don’t have any of these sites set aside, but they are available to book through Black Rock Mountain State Park’s website. These sites are located near the walk-in campsites, and they are a great option if you’d like more space and privacy or are traveling with a coed group.
