Did Someone Say Questions?

Is there electricity?

The Answer

There is no electricity in the accommodations. They are illuminated at night with propane lamps. You will be unable to use any small electrical appliances like hair dryers, curling irons, or razors. There are no fans or air conditioning in the rooms. If you want to read at night, you will need to bring a book light with you. There is limited outdoor lighting so you will need to carry a flashlight or use a headlamp at night. Candles and oil lamps are prohibited at camp, please do not bring them to the camp.

Should I worry about altitude sickness?

The Answer

Most cases of altitude sickness are caused by dehydration. Please pack a reusable water bottle and carry it with you

while visiting the park. Make a point of drinking frequently throughout your visit.

Are bears an issue?

The Answer

Black bears are a critical part of the park ecosystem. For the safety

of our guests and the wild bears, please respect

the park guidelines on bear encounters.

What should I pack?

The Answer

Please bring a flashlight. Plan on packing clothing for both warm and cold weather. Because of the center’s high altitude, the weather can be changeable, and the evenings are often cool. Other important items include a reusable water bottle, flashlight/headlamp, bug repellant, yoga mat, musical instruments, books, art supplies, a camp chair, rechargeable batteries, and a spirit of adventure.
