Imagine a summer filled with camping, hiking, fishing and watersports with some music, movies and good eats mixed in. The newly launched Walker Rocks Outdoor Series blends these experiences 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 25th. Load up your vehicle and head to the Cove for 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 2:00 p.m. A vehicle parking pass gets you inside for all activities. The cost is just $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.
The Walker Rocks Outdoor Series continues later this summer with the following events:
- Kayak & Canoe Day at Lee & Gordon’s Mill – June 22
- Trivia Scavenger Hunt at Lula Lake – July 13
- Dive-in Movie and Such at Queen City Lake on August 17
- Fright Night Camp Out at Magnolia Pines on September 13
