The heat has brought extreme fire danger, so there is no smoking allowed except for at designated smoking areas. No charcoal BBQs are allowed except for the ones provided around the lake. No wood fires are allowed at all. All cooking at the camp areas is with propane only and off the ground. Please be very aware of fire!!
Along with fire danger from the heat the heat has also slowed fishing way, way down, so be aware that the only time people are catching fish is early morning.
We will be closed starting August 21st through August 30th and reopen on the 31st. We are setting up and hosting the wonderful Faerieworlds Festival, a Celtic/Mystical music festival based on Faeries!!! For more information on Faerieworlds go to our calendar page. All fishing, camping and disc golf will be closed during this time.
here are some of the things we get asked a bunch
For safety, security, and legality, a special set of rules are observed at Horning's Hideout when we are hosting concert events. Concert-goers are encouraged to review these rules since some can result in ejection from the concert or arrest. Please click here for our Concert Rules
can i bring my dog or other pet to horning's hideout?
We do allow dogs, except when we are hosting a concert. During any concert, dogs are not allowed. At any other time, dogs are allowed though they must be leashed at all times and must be dogs that get along very, very well with other dogs. Aggressive dogs are not allowed at any time.
Unfortunately, as much as we understand the commitment between you and your pet, we do not allow anyone to bring a pet to Horning's Hideout during concerts and special events. For more information, see our Concert Rules
are campfires allowed?
Campfires are allowed except during concert events and during fire season. Fire season is usually July through September. During this time absolutely no campfires (in a container or not) or open flames such as tiki torches or open candles are allowed. Please bring a propane stove to cook with. Usually there are fires allowed from October through about the end of June, depending on weather. We have movable fire pits (we move them out during fire season), so when you can have a fire please use them so that there is no evidence of fire on the ground. That way during fire season campers will not mistake scorch marks on the ground as a fire area.
what should i bring with me for special events/concerts?
During concerts Horning’s Hideout offers camping but no power or water hook ups. Think of a canyon in the Pacific Northwest and make sure you bring warm clothes and a warm sleeping bag for our sometimes cool evenings and a water-tight tent.
Please remember NO OPEN FIRES – NO CANDLES!
This is a wooded canyon, so campfires and candles during events are strictly forbidden. Violators will have wrist bands cut and expelled. Smoke only in designated areas. In case of fire do not try to drive out, follow instructions of concert staff and proceed to safe areas. Safe camping stoves (propane, off the ground) are permitted, though in dry seasons there may be designated cooking areas. Plenty of food will be available for sale at very reasonable prices.
Drinking water is also available for no fee.
During concerts an ATM will be onsite. We encourage patrons to bring enough cash to last the three-day weekend.
Portable toilets and hand washing stations are located throughout the Hideout.
Telephones will be available to the public for local calls. Calling cards will be necessary for long distance calls.
is there food at concert events?
A variety of independent vendors sell food and crafts for the duration of most events, with the food prices being very reasonable. Ice and bottled water are also usually available for purchase too.
