Blayney Meadows
5 nights
Blayney Meadows
The base camp in Blayney is a wilderness camp. If your previous camping experience includes wilderness backpacking, the accommodations will seem deluxe to you. If however, all of your past experiences have taken place in resorts or guest ranches our facility may seem very primitive to you. There is no electricity or running water other than in the streams (purified local water is provided for drinking). There is no phone service other than a satellite phone and solar powered internet system, which can be used to contact the outside world in emergencies. Participants will camp in tents located in an aspen grove near Sallie Keyes Creek. Restrooms (outhouses) are conveniently located nearby. Tents and foam mattresses are provided. The main buildings, kitchen, gathering room and shower house are situated several hundred yards across the meadow along Sanger Creek. All are built of native materials with most of the lumber milled on the site. Cooking is done on both propane and wood stoves. Propane fuels our refrigerators and freezers. Delicious home cooked meals with fresh ingredients are served “family style” in the camp outdoor dining area. Showers and baths are provided by a wood fueled hot water system in our rustic bathhouse. Participants bring their own towels and toiletries but a few basics such as soap and shampoo will be provided.
