Slocum is one of our larger sites and has a number of terrific features. The topography of the site is a shallow-rise hill, with the lower half on a relatively flat area near the COPE Road. The deeper you go into the site the higher the terrain rises, although not enough to make you huff and puff going from top to bottom. The platforms are arranged so that the site can easily be divided into upper and lower groupings, while the Adirondack-style shelter offers some additional protection from the elements. Platforms in the lower half of the site all face in towards the open center, while platforms in the wooded upper section form a ring and face downhill towards the center.
Site capacity: For larger sized units or two or three smaller units
