The newly launched Walker Rocks Outdoor Series blends camping, hiking, fishing and watersports with music, movies and food mixed in to make some of Walker County’s leading outdoor attractions more accessible to the general public.
The series kicks off with the Family Campout at Mountain Cove Farms (994 Dougherty Gap Road, Chickamauga) on Saturday, May 25. There will be an afternoon of campground music and field day style games, like three-legged races, sack races and kickball. Campers can also relax by the campfire while making s’mores and catch a special showing of the 80’s adventure movie The Goonies.
“This is a family friendly event that offers a unique opportunity for parents with young children to try out camping and see what it’s like to sleep outdoors,” said Lacey Wilson, Chamber president. “We also see this as a staycation of sorts for folks looking for something unique to do with their family over the holiday weekend.”
Set up for tent camping begins at 2 p.m. A vehicle parking pass gets guests inside for all activities. The cost is $5 per vehicle in advance online at walkerrocks.com or $10 cash the day of the event. Food, drinks and popcorn will also be available on site to purchase.
