There are still some sites available. If you like to camp with us, please do not wait, and reserve it today.
It’s time to make your reservations for Labor Day Weekend 2018 Czech-Slovak Community Camp. Yvonne Masopust asked me to organize camping this year, since she is extremely busy now, and I agreed to help her. She told me, that Czech and Slovak community camping tradition started over 50 years ago and most of the time they camped at Hume Lake.
For last 2 years, we were camping at Green Valley (Big Bear). Nature is really beautiful there, but camp is small (we had families who could not join us since camp sites filled out quickly). Also there were no showers available, and nights were very cold in September.
This year, for all of those reasons let's try out different, bigger capacity "Hurkey Creek campground" with showers, and little warmer night climate. Some campers have been there already (including me), and all have positive feed back. We are hoping that more people will be able to participate since campground has bigger site capacity and it is close to both Los Angeles and San Diego, where most of our campers live. Unfortunately this means that the camp will be much further for Bay Area campers, however, we’ve had none or very minimal participation from Bay Area in the past several years even when the camp was held at Hume Lake.
Where: Hurkey Creek Campground:
Hurkey Creek Campground has 130 single-family campsites. The campground is located in the San Jacinto Mountains about 8 miles from the town of Idyllwild and a mile from Lake Hemet. The campground sits among a forest of large pine trees with some sites along Hurkey Creek.
The restrooms have flush toilets. Showers operate on quarters. Tents and also RVs up to 40 ft. Pet friendly campground.
Friday, August 31 – Monday, Sept 3, 2018 (Labor Day weekend)
Some of our regular campers who are either self-employed, retired or others will possibly arrive already on Wednesday or Thursday before the long weekend.
Recreational opportunities include fishing at nearby Lake Hemet, hiking, biking and wildlife viewing, set among tall pines, sweet smelling cedars and Legendary rocks, bird watching. The meadow offers a large area for outdoor games (softball, volleyball, etc. – provide your own equipment) or group gatherings. There is one very nice playground for children near the day-use and camping areas. Hurkey Creek is a beautiful natural seasonal feature of the park. When water is present, campers and guests (including dogs) are welcome to splash and play. The City of Idyllwild has lots to do: shopping, dining, music, art galleries, etc. Horse rental is available at McCall (May 1 to October 30).
How to make reservations:
Each party/family must reserve own individual campsite at Hurkey Creek campground. If you like to come, please, do not wait. We really encourage you to make reservations as soon as possible, due to camp site space limits. Every year, we have LAST minute campers who would like to join us, but unfortunately some of them cannot since camp was full. If you are not sure if you will attend, we recommend you to reserve your campsite now and decide later. It is much easier to cancel your reservation than to try to find a campsite after all of them have already been booked. Cost to cancel is $14 if canceled 14 days or more prior to the arrival. If cancelled 13 days or less prior arrival date, fee is $14+ first night camping fee. Or if you need to cancel later, please, let me know, we may have some people on list waiting for some camp site to open.
Reserve your campsite on this website: choose "Hurkey Creek" (Sites 1-130) My family is site# 86.
