JOIN us at Lake Patagonia 
Friday-Sunday, Oct. 4-6, 2024
We hope you will join in the fun this year.
Our last campout was a great success! 

Last year, we had enough campers that we broke into multiple groups, giving us choices of people to pick with. This many pickers made for an especially great weekend.   Patagonia Lake is the perfect oasis in southern Arizona for hiking, swimming, fishing, kayaking, and boating.  All these activities, and bluegrass jamming in between!  There will be several scheduled jams throughout the weekend. And like last year, we will have a select DBA band performing for the park Saturday around 5:30 or 6:00 pm under the ramada at the beach.

We camp in an area in the WEST campground where campsites (78 -> 102) surround a large circle of grass and shade trees where we put up canopies for our get-togethers. The sites around the area go fast, so make your reservations right away if you would like to attend.  If you make a reservation now and need to cancel, as long as you cancel 2 days before, all but $3.20 (reservation fee) will be returned to you. If you need to cancel, please let us know because we always have a last minute waitlist and would prefer to pass your spot on to pickers and grinners. 

See our last December newsletter for pictures and articles about the last campout.

If you plan to go, please let us know so that we can send you information the week before on schedule and plans.  Email your name and the site # you have reserved to
If you have any questions, call

If you are not a camper, we hope you will consider coming down for the day on Saturday.  The park says “Day visitors” may not be allowed on busy Saturdays; however, a vehicle joining someone on a reserved site IS allowed for a $15 or $20 fee. If you would like to join us for the day, call Dale for information on what to say so you can get in or email us and we’ll also send you the info sent to campers.

Because the lake is such a great getaway and just an hour from Tucson, most spots down there fill up a year in advance. Don’t delay, reserve right away.
