Woods Flock returns for our third year (April 12-14, 2024) to explore ecosystems in the balance and learn how we all can contribute to a better world. Our event aims to offer a high-energy, well-structured experience that will get you immersed in nature and inspired to create or explore.
For an idea of what to expect, you can view the 2023 schedule here
Some activities we will have include hiking, campfire songs & tales, educational presentations including animal encounters, and various crafts. Due to the nature of our camp, most official panels & activities will have limited space available and you may need to sign up in advance. However, you can always take off on your own or with friends to check out the many trails and attractions the park has to offer. This includes a zipline/tree course, horseback riding, golf, rock climbing, canoe/kayaking, fishing, and more. Depending on interest, we may be able to get group rates on some activities.
Our Guest of Honor this year is Iggi of Alstro Arts, a family art endeavor by Iggi (artist & owner), Jack (co-owner & product coordinator), and Nanerbird (kid-bird, quality assurance, & occasional box packer).
They design magical nature themed enamel pins, plush, washi tape, and loads of other fun products. The animal designs often are made of primal elements of Earth, Water, Wind, & Fire and include landscapes of where they live across their bodies.
Founded in 2009 originally as Iggi Ink fresh out of college, originally Iggi took on commission work freelance in the anthro art community. Mostly creating pieces and selling them on auction sites until 2011. Until around 2012 Iggi Ink offered little merchandise but slowly expanded into bookmarks, buttons, and prints. And in 2015, Alstro Arts started to offer more unique items like stickers and large format prints.
In 2017 Iggi was married and had a kid (Nanerbird). With that, the family began to move away from more commission based income to merchandise, to spend more dedicated time together. In February of 2018 their first Kickstarter was launched with Stat Charm Enamel Pins, and that was the set that kicked off a more merch heavy Iggi Ink.
In 2019 they re-branded as Alstro Arts to reflect an all new family-friendly style and store front (check out all their links HERE!)
Don’t miss out on this year’s beautiful t-shirt! The black & white design will be printed on white (for tie-dye) or teal Gildan 100% cotton from a local shop. Pre-orders will be available via the new online store until Jan 12th and save $5; very limited quantities and sizes will be available at the event.

For locals who just want to hang out for the day, this pass will grant you access to “the Roost,” which includes the Artist Alley/Market & tabletop gaming / hangout area. Due to fire code, you may have to wait outside if the building is at capacity. Day passes can only be used for other camp activities (like the panels/crafts/etc) if there is enough space or supplies after full campers are admitted (determined at the panel’s start time).
You are welcome to fursuit, hike, or otherwise enjoy the park but are not admitted into the lodge dormitories and should not hang around camp sites unless you have been invited by the host. You are still subject to the Code of Conduct!
Friday $15 ($5 after 3pm)
Saturday $30 (half price after 3pm)
Sunday $15 ($5 after 2pm)
Subject to capacity limitations, cash only – please bring exact change.
**If we have the space, you may upgrade to a full pass and/or lodging on site but meals will not be included**
The Group Lodge Bunks & campsites are available through our group reservation and thus limited in number and handled by Woods Flock itself rather than the park. It covers all three nights – Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (plus Thursday for Super Sponsors; Monday is a check-out/clean-up day only, which is why it is not included in our dates). There is only one rate available if you want to be in our tent campground or group lodge, whether you stay all 3 nights or not. Everyone staying with us will be able to use the flush toilets and showers in the group lodge, but depending on attendance, a shower schedule/time limit may be enforced.
Check-in will start at 10 AM Friday the 12th of April, and check-out is 10am on Monday the 15th (this means packed and cleaned up and driving away). Other accommodations such as cabins can be made thru the park or other third-parties, but you will be further from most of the action (about 10-15min drive). Those wanting water/sewer hookups for an RV/camper, or a private tent site, can reserve a spot in the main park thru the state park website (subject to their rates).
All campers staying in the lodge will get the meal plan, though others may add it on for an additional cost. February 28th is the deadline to sign up, and we have a limit to the number of people we can feed so if that is reached prior to the deadline it will be closed sooner. The menu from 2023 can be seen here to get an idea of what to expect, but it will be different in 2024. If you are on the meal plan or wish to add one, make sure to fill out your preferences when the form is released. There is a general store & snack bar located within the park, about 10-15 minute drive from the reserved Woods Flock area. Just outside the park is a small convenience mart with a tiny diner that has hot breakfast & good food (The Way Inn). You are encouraged to bring your own food, drinks, and condiments (there is an ice machine in the lodge), especially if you don’t think our meal plan will be filling enough for you – it is meant to be a reasonably priced, convenient, and balanced but basic option. We also encourage you to bring your own reusable dishes, utensils, and water bottle in order to reduce waste and reduce the dishwashing load.
Lodge Dormitory Bunk
The group lodge has flush toilets & showers with individual stalls. Each pair of bunks makes up an open bay and shares a wardrobe (no lock). You are welcome to bring a curtain rod/hang your own curtain.
- Price includes tax & meal plan
- ~4 beds (2 bunks) per bay, dorms on 2 levels
- Individuals only, though groups of up to four can share a bay by purchasing as “Host/Hosted” during registration (this also saves $ for the 3rd/4th bunkmates)
- Single registrants will be assigned a bay-mate.
These are “primitive” and walk-in. Email email@example.com to arrange for groups to be next to each other or if you need more than one space. Private campsites/RV spots can be reserved at the park website.
- Includes tax
- roughly 10×10 space, plenty of aisle room between tents
- One large shared group fire ring/gathering area
- Parking limited but mostly nearby
- part of recreation field where other activities will happen
- Short walk to bathroom facilities in the dorm bldg
Optional add-on for anyone not staying in the lodge, for which it is included. The kitchen will mostly be closed to attendees, with the exception of providing refrigeration for medication.
We do have a limited capacity for meal plan service, so once reached it will closed. After Jan 23rd the price goes up to $60.
You are welcome to bring gear and food for campfire/grill cooking. We aim to provide moderately healthy and affordable meals for those who do not want to bring their own. Each day (3 total) includes:
- Breakfast (snack only Friday)
- Sack lunch
- Hot dinner
Beverages & S'mores
Water will be available at all times. Please bring your own water bottle or you may purchase one by donation at the con store. There is also an ice machine located in the lodge, outside the kitchen (bottom floor of the Roost).
Some other beverages & coffee are included in the meal plan, and we will have some electrolyte & energy drinks available in the camp store. You are welcome to bring your own drinks, however we have a zero-tolerance policy for underage drinking of alcoholic beverages.
And what camp would be complete without S’mores?? So we’ll have them every night!
