Medicine Bow Peak 119

66th Annual Antelope National Rally.

September 23-27, 2020

Heward Ranch, Near Medicine Bow, Wyoming

Chrissy Bunn, Chairperson

Come and join us and explore the country as it was in the past.  Antelope season opens 9/25/2020 and closes 10/31/2020.  For the fishermen nearby Lake Allen has some excellent trout fishing.  Those that just want to experience nature and/or hike come and enjoy. 

This is an opportunity to really enjoy Wyoming and experience old time camping in your airstream.  Other campsite activities that may be included are:  a quilting bee, other group crafting in nature and a contest for making a table center pieces from the open range materials.  These will depend on the interest of those that come.  Nearby in Saratoga are hot springs.     For the hunters, a gun range will be set up.  

You will be dry camping with limited electricity (first come/ first serve basis).   There will be a porta-potty on site.  Water will be available at the cook shack. The Wyoming unit will provide a dinner and a morning coffee.  A Crockpot shared meal is planned and other group shared meals will be arranged.
