Trip Description 

Days will include hiking 5-7 miles per day. We will be primarily in a “backcountry” setting, away from toilets and running water. Campers are expected to carry all necessary items into a hike-in campsite. This includes all personal belongings as well as portions of group items to be divided up upon arrival at camp (tent parts, food, etc.). Campers will assist in setting up camp, cooking, and other tasks as part of this program. 

At Yellow River State Forest (July 15-19), campers will hike 2 miles into a campsite where they will set up camp for the week. Campers will spend their days trout fishing, studying stream ecology, and exploring miles of trails at YRSF and at Effigy Mounds National Monument.
