Friday. Set up camp as early as 3 p.m. Dinner on own.
Saturday. Communal breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Sunday. Communal breakfast, pack lunch for floating. Check out is 2 p.m. but flexible.
Floating is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Sunday.
Here is a link to Floating Information: http://www.meramecpark.com/
From our experience the 5 mile float takes 2.5 hours for canoes and 4.5 hours for rafts.
Camping costs will be $25 for ages 7 and up and $20 for ages 6 and under.
Floating costs will be dependent upon preferences for floating mode but will average around $22.
Note: because watercraft requires a non-refundable reservation, we will require payment from those who RSVP, even if they cannot come (barring major extenuating circumstances).
