Will you bring your own firewood?

Or, will you need firewood provided at $10.00 per 1/10 cord? How many cords requested?

Please return the Tent Camping Reservation Form/Indemnification Agreement with your deposit, along with a copy of your Certificate of Insurance and a copy of the group's charter and bylaws.

I have read the form titled "Tent Camping at Hashawha Procedure and Regulations" and will abide by the rules stated.


Groups using this area of Hashawha/Bear Branch do so at their own risk. The center does not provide security. A group using the center does so on the condition that it assumes full responsibility and liability for any injury or damage to members of the group or their property. It is understood that the group and its leaders indemnify and hold harmless the County government and its officers, employees, and volunteers from all liability except that incurred through the County's negligence.
