Just a few weeks till we meet in Area 33!
May 23 - 26
Please sign up
on the rally calendar: Airstream Forums - Area 33 Rally
This rural spot has a group camp area with fire ring - wood included, great views, a babbling brook, 2 lovely porto-lets and a potable water spigot. If you want to shower you can drive a couple of miles down the road to the county park or swim in the creek (elk will be watching...) Camping is in a grassy but not
level field with some sparse trees - no sand, gravel or asphalt slabs anywhere! Plan to boondock and arrive with full water tanks and empty dump tanks.
Parking takes some planning and may be somewhat challenging. Almost all sites require backing but there is always help if you need it and an audience if you don't
Almost everyone will need to unhitch and park tow vehicles away from trailers. Camping fees are yet to be determined but will be approximately $17 per night (cash and check only). This fee extends to each tent pitched as well.
Area 33 - more farm-less park
Hollenbeck Park located near Trout Lake WA
33 Mt Adams Rd.
Owner: Zoe Wood
From Hwy 141 North bound - Mt Adams Hwy
- Bear right at Chevron Station (road splits) in town and go about 1/8 mile across creek. fair warning - town is hard to recognize - a small market or two - that's all. This intersection is near the County campground
- Left at 3-way intersection - look for sign to park. Go about 300 feet down driveway
- Right at sign to Hollenbeck park.
- Drive down old runway 1900 ft (see hanger on left) to end of the runway. Cross irrigation ditch.
- Camping to the left - we get the area with the fire pit and picnic table.. Please be careful about water spigots.
Just go ahead and park. One of the owners will come by on a small motorbike to collect. They do not take plastic! Checks OK.
there is no dump station here - but the County park - seen on map quest link does have a dump station. You may dump "not too gray" water out of the way. Donít ask - donít tell.
This place is not in any phone book and the directions are kinda like a treasure hunt. The owner works at a day job and does not advertise. Some portion of this land is a working farm.
Must be packed out or taken to county collection station several miles away.
last year we had decent ATT cell service
Be prepared - bring a book.
