FORAY WEEKEND: Sweat 'n Chanterelles

Registration for Sweat 'n Chanterelles Weekend Camping has reopened due to several cancellations. 
But don't register for this event if you intend to make your own camping arrangements or come for the Saturday foray only. Instead register for the  Sweat 'n Chanterelles Foray only

Sweat 'n Chanterelles
July 14th-16th
Weekend Camping Foray and Saturday Foray
Meramec State Park - Campgrounds, sites 83,84,85,87 & 88
All potluck & tents only
Join us for another year of awesome July mushroom hunting at Sweat 'n Chanterelles! We'll find more than just chanterelles but only if we get some rain. Normally we don't charge a registration fee but this year I am asking everyone to do at least five rain dances before attending. Just jokes, but seriously we need rain.
Regardless of mushrooms we always have fun. The hikes are beautiful, and the float trip is perfect in the afternoon to cool off. There's no other way to spend a weekend in July. 
Please note that we are not at group camp site A this year but on sites #83, 84, 85, 87 & 88. There are electric camper site right nearby and cabins in the park if you want to reserve other accommodations. 
This is a free event but please make sure to register below since it's first come first serve and limited to 10 cars/families for camping. There is no limit on the Saturday foray so if the campout is full you can still register for the Saturday foray only.
For meals and group activities at the campgrounds there is parking at our sites and extra parking by the bathhouse when you first pull in on the right.
