HPF Camping Trip
April 13-15, Cedar Breaks Park at Lake Georgetown, a Corps of Engineers park
Click here for Park info
The cost is $6.50 a person, regardless of age. So, if you have 4 people in your family, and you're coming for both nights, that's $26. If you can only stay one night, then it's $3.50 a person. If you're coming for the day only, it's $3.50 a person. BUT, if you have 6 or more in your family, the rate drops a $1, to $6 a person.
Here's your options to pay:
- check (to Wendy Campbell, in person or mail to 1503 Colby Lane, Cedar Park, TX 78613)
- Paypal ([email protected])
- CashApp ($wendyrcampbell)
- Facebook Payments (Wendy R Campbell)
- Please don't leave an envelope of money in the church office and assume I'll get it. Contact me (512-775-7467) and we'll connect!
We have sites 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. Depending on the number of campers, I might cancel sites. We can have 8 people (regardless of age) per site, or roughly 2 families. These sites are all standard electric and water hookup sites with pads for RVs, tents, hammocks, whatever you want to camp in!
On the signup below, I'm assuming we'll have enough folks for 2 families per meal...but that could change, depending on our numbers. Please keep an open mind if I contact you about needing to swap a meal, thanks!!
If you're new to camping, we'd love to have you! If you are low on supplies, we have some loaners and lots of basics to share. Possibly even tents and sleeping bags, and definitely cooking gear! In fact, most people don't have it all--we do group meals, so we share cooking stoves, cooking gear, marshmallow sticks, etc. Just ask on the Highpoint Fellowship Camping and Outdoors page for what you need!
Our Facebook page and usual way of communicating is through:
Activities and Amenities
- Accessible Flush Toilets
- Boat Ramp
- Drinking Water
- Dump Station
- Electric Hookups
- Fishing Dock
- Parking Area
- Picnic Shelters
Note about swimming: there isn't a swimming beach, but in the past, kiddos had fun swimming around the cliff area. If you're trying to remember, we camped as a church group here in the spring of 2014.
This is our 32nd Highpoint Fellowship camping trip!!
Here's the list of where we've been: https://bit.ly/2uNLp3B
- Here's the scoop: We do group meals--you'll get with two (or more) other families and divvy up the food responsibilities. You're in charge of your one meal and trash bags to clean up after.
- Each family on their own is in charge of providing their own plates, cutlery, and drinks for all meals.
- Exception (you have to have those): If you're doing breakfast, it would be nice to provide hot/cold drinks. 2nd exception: If you're serving a non-plate item (like soup), please provide bowls or cups.
- Please try to say what you're planning, so we don't have three meals of hot dogs. :)
- Also, breakfast drinks often carryover to Sunday--check with the other breakfast people to possibly share drinks.
- You can always add your menu comment later...Contact other families via FB or on the church member site.
Please sign up also for s'mores stuff, communion (we usually have it Saturday evening, but if anyone wants a change, please share on FB!) stuff, firewood, etc.
Please also post on FB if you want to share/borrow something! Many families have camp stoves and other paraphernalia that you could use--just ask!
Other things you may wish to bring include fishing gear, canoes, life jackets, swimsuits (hoping it'll be warm enough to swim!), guitars, etc.
One more link to always check before camping: the Burn Ban Map! http://tfsfrp.tamu.edu/wildfires/DecBan.png (we're good right now, Williamson County)
I'll be sharing the head count on FB as people sign up, to help you figure quantities with your meal-planning family (or on your own, depending on our numbers).
Boating is the most popular way to enjoy the lake, and a boat ramp is provided for guests.
Fishing is excellent in the area, and the lake contains Black bass, White bass, Hybrid stripers, White crappie, Channel catfish and Flathead catfish, but its most known for its abundance of Smallmouth bass.
The San Gabriel River Trail is a 26 mile rugged trail winding through dense juniper forest, hardwood bottomlands and prairie grasslands. The trail extends completely around Georgetown Lake via the dam and is open to hiking and biking.
Check in is at 3pm. The entrance station is open from 6am to 10 pm daily.
Check out Sunday is 2pm, but most people pack up and head home after breakfast.
- Summer gate house hours of operation (April 1 through September 30): Sunday through Thursday, 9:00 AM-8:00 PM; Friday through Saturday, 9:00 AM-10:00 PM
Please be considerate when picking out your campsite. We have folks sleeping in hammocks (who'll need nice trees), and possibly RVs. Will update as we have signups.
Directions: From I-35, take Farm to Market Road 2338 west for 3.5 miles to D.B. Wood Road. Turn left and continue for 2.5 miles. Turn right onto Cedar Breaks Road and follow signs to the park.
