Is potable water available on site?
No, we currently do not have potable water on site. There is a fresh water
spring available within 5 miles (directions will be available in your
registration packets). Many folks use collapsible water containers; general rule
of thumb is 1 gallon per person per day.
electrical power available?
Currently electrical power is not available on site. Most folks bring a small
generator with them.
Is there any place to
Most folks bring a small generator and recharge during the day. Honda has a
small, quiet one that is commonly seen.
What toilet facilities will there be?
Yes, we will have multiple porta-potties around the entire area.
there be portable showers available?
No, most folks bring a camping shower or utilize the local hotels.
Where can we set up our camp?
Anywhere. We have no restrictions on camping as long as it is not obscuring
the skies. We are encouraging RV’s to assemble along the perimeter of the
property. Details will be available at the registration tent.
is cell phone and/or Wi-fi coverage?
No Wi-Fi at this time. AT&T and Verizon both have service in the area.
Verizon's signal is quite good and AT&T was better last year. We have found that
due to the terrain the signal quality and strength varies around the property.
We encourage you to do a walk around checking for the best area and then
determine where you want to camp. Once we reach the spring thaw we will reassess
the signal quality on the property.
Will there be bathroom/shower facilities?
No, most folks bring a camping shower or utilize the local hotels. More
information will be available in your registration packets.
Is it permitted to arrive a day early and/or stay a day later?
Unless you are a member of the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society, our insurance only covers the scheduled event days. We cannot permit non-members to stay outside the RMSS event days.
