Summer Vacation Time – Always bring beach towels or recreational towels. We provide bath towels, some places charge extra for them.  Caution not to stain with bleach products. Knowing this beforehand is important. To keep towels fresh during your stay. Let them dry in the sun. Ask about linens. We provide linens and bedding.

Plan Ahead – Bring bug spray, a hat, bandanas, a light long sleeve, and light pants. Lemon balm lotion seems to deter bugs. Unscented sun screen is always better. Note: Stand downwind. Use bug spray in open area away from vehicles, buildings and decks. Sprays leave stains on surfaces and vehicles. It is best to shower at night before bed with un-scented soaps. No perfumes – Bug’s love it. Bedding stays fresh. It deters bugs the next day.

Shoes – Have good sturdy pair of walking or hiking shoes with hard rubber on the toe. A pull strap on the back with good tread is important. Great outdoor shoes at stores in town.  Bring river shoes to protect your feet.

Clothing –  Plan to bring a warm fleece and have a layer with waterproof shell. Be prepared for all weather. When vacation packing, you should dress in layers. Indian Hill Trading Post offers Clothing and Hiking Footwear

Pack Equipment – Don’t forget binoculars and camera. Bring a GPS. There a many geocaches along area hikes. Let your rental agent know what recreational equipment such as boats, bikes, canoes, kayaks and or a trailer you may bring. We reserve space for you ahead of time.
