We have lots of really fancy tent pads and I am hoping that we get pics of a lot of them up in the next couple of days.

For now, here are some of the tent pics we have:








We have enough flat space for about 500 tents. And some people have made some really nice tent pads while they were here - they have been filled with sand, which is comfy and insulative.

I took a quick spin at basecamp and got pics of a few of the tent pads that have been built.

I like that all of the tenting areas are set up to blend with the surroundings, but still be quite clear where your area is. I also love that the tenting pads have space enough for more than just your tent. That should really limit the damaging impact campers have on the area I think.

I really like those log-edged tent pads. So neat, clean, obvious, and safe.

Good points, Tyler! Also loving the reduced human-impact on the area. We have more!
