  • Vehicles: Vehicles may be parked in the available parking spaces next to the camp sites or in the Main parking area about 150 yards from the camping area. Driving within the camp area is allowed only from 7:00 am-12:00pm and 5:00pm-7:00pm unless accompanied by a troll for camp set up or emergency. There is absolutely NO driving through the camping area after dark without permission from troll. If you need to go into town plan ahead and/or park in the main parking area. The camp area is directly across the road from the fighting area and we do not want to dodge vehicles going to and from battles.

Typical selection of gas station food in a small station.

  • Rules: The standard Belegarth Book of War rules will be used for this event.
  • No Pets: There are no pets allowed on the site or around it, so leave them home please.
  • Keeping the site clean: All persons must tell troll where they are camping so that the area can be inspected for trash prior to leaving.
  • Noise: Though there are no set noise restrictions, we would appreciate it if the noise level was lowered to a dull roar after 1:00 am.
