Note: All facilities are completely closed to visitors during the first and second weekend of hunting season. Typically, this season spans the end of November through the beginning of December. If you are interested in visiting Tuscarora at this time period, please call the Camping Secretary to ensure that the weekend when you would like to come is not during hunting season.
The Picnic Pavilion is a 1,280 square foot enclosed, well lit, picnic area. There are sliding doors on all four sides to open it up on nice days, or you can close it down, fire up the wood furnace and make it a lil more cozy on those not-so-nice days. To the rear is an outdoor (covered) fire pit area which is great for cooking tin-foil meals, conducting a campfire ceremony in the pouring rain (the doors open to show the fire), or just to relax by. There is a water spigot outside that has seasonal water (15 Apr - 15 Oct). Nearby is a latrine (divided for male/female), complete with running water. There is space abound to set-up tents, play games, or conduct other types of program. We reccently added a propane fueled range for indoor cooking and for arts & crafts too! You must supply your own propane. A connection outside easily allows you to hook up a 20 lb BBQ propane tank.
A service road exists to bring up your gear and supplies needed. Main access and parking for the facility is the Main Parking Lot. A short trail (uphill) provides for a nice walk.
This program area makes for a great classroom area too, or a nice addition to a campout at WU3 as there is a footpath leading directly to the site. Hiking Trail System access is also available from the Pavilion.
