Area 33 Rally Planning | 2013

Just a few weeks till we meet in Area 33!

Reserved dates: May 24 - 27
Please sign up on the rally calendar

The basics: 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


Directions: 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.

Dumping: 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 owners work at day jobs and do not advertise. Some portion of this land is a working farm.

Garbage: Must be packed out or taken to county collection station several miles away.

Connectivity: last year we had decent ATT cell service
Rain: Be prepared - bring a book.
Waiting list: Please let me know if you are interested in attending and unable to get a spot. This rally location has limited parking space but once the list is full we may have cancellations - anything is possible.
Cancellations: If you cannot make it please let me know - there will a waiting list to attend.

here's a mapquest map

Meals and activities:
Meal planning will commence on the next post.
Planned activities - none.
Suggested diversions:
There are great hiking trails, good biking, an ice cave and white water kayaking nearby if you are so inclined.
Kite flying - excellent conditions
Long walks
Bring Your Hula Hoop or make one there

Plans change

Once again plans change. We will not make area 33. We will be going to Texas. My sister has brain cancer. We are going to visit her.

We will be thinking of all our friends in the area 33

Sooo sorry, Claudia and Don, that you won't be coming! What a disappointment! We were looking forward to seeing you.....it's been too long. Family comes first, though, esp. under these circumstances, . You'll be missed.....again!!
Janet, haven't decided on foods yet but I'll have it together before rally.

See you all soon,
Carolyn and Loren

That's OK - looks like most folks haven't. I'm not worried - we never go hungry
