Have you been meaning to give camping a try? If so, the “First Time Camper” Program might be for you. This program, sponsored by Gander Mountain, aims to provide an opportunity for new campers to experience both campers and the outdoors. Equipment, instructions, gear and information are provided at an economic rate.
In order to help new campers prepare for their experience, each group receives a welcome kit that outlines what to expect, pack and wear. After check-in, DNR staff help participants through the process of setting up camp and settling in.
