Packing List

What to bring on your trip to Big Laurel

Depending on the needs of the individuals in your group, you will either be sleeping in the main guest house, the condo, or the bunkhouse. All sleeping sites are equipped with electricity and heaters. All of our water is collected, treated, and stored rainwater, which limits how much of it we can use. Laundry will only be available for emergencies or accidents and showers will be available after work days or more frequently if rain has been plentiful.
