Coming from out of town? Live local but want to make it a weekend?
Primitive camping is available at Germantown MetroPark on Friday and Saturday nights. Three shelter areas are reserved for TVT Challenge participants use; all within a short walk to the starting point of the challenge.
An additional primitive campsite (Shimps Hollow) is available in Germantown if you prefer to be away from the action and want some quiet time, just a short drive from the start.
Bring your own gear, food, water, beverages and chairs. The campsites have plenty of flat areas for tents. Picnic tables, a fire ring and firewood will be supplied. Privy style toilets are nearby. There is no running water or electricity at the campsites. Due to the threat of invasive species, do not bring any firewood.
There is no charge for camping!
Note: There is no running water or electricity at Shimps Hollow campsite. A water spigot is available at the shelter areas. There are no showers available on site.
