For your fishing, swimming, and water sports pleasures the venue has a beautiful five-acre natural spring fed lake with sandy beaches, plus the lake has a paddle boat available for your enjoyment with a fixed swimming platform. Many near by hotels/motels to choose from in Black River Falls if outdoor camping isn't your desire!
This is going to be a very deeply humble, and special time for camping and gathering with friends of old and new! The 3G's will be a mix of wonderful music by some of the best Jambands in the midwest playing their original music, along with their selections of two or three Grateful Dead cover songs. Our friends at Mystix Toyz will be on board at the 3G's for tons of family fun with juggling demonstrations, including juggling workshops, face painting, kids parades, plus drum circles and fire dance jams every night!
