3 Day rally for SNU and WBCCI members. Visitors welcome. SNU Board meeting on Saturday open to all.

The pavement ends just past the turn off to Unionville. Turn right on road to Unionville, go 2.1 miles. The section to Unionville is also unpaved. It is good gravel, wide enough for Airstreams and no steep grades. The rally will be held in an open field near the park in Unionville.

Don't give up - The park is near the end of the road.

** New March 2010 - The SNU now provides the means for you to put its rally sites on your electronic map. If you don't have a GPS or a PND or a computer with a mapping program, you can still take the file and use it to find coordinates on your paper maps.

Boondocking SNU Style

SNU rallies are a great way to experience camping “off grid” Our usual rally sites have no electricity or other hookups. Water is frequently not available. For the SNU, this type of camping enhances the experience and we are never without all the comforts of home
