Great American Campout 

The Great American Campout will return in 2021.  We missed camping with everyone last year and look forward to another fun night under the stars on June 5.  This year due to social distancing guidelines the campout will have a little different look.  The event will coincide with JCPRD's "A Day in the Park."  Beach and Boat rental are free Saturday, June 5 only!  Availability at the marina is limited so we strongly encourage you to make online reservations.  You may make reservations 7 days in advance.  Unfortunately, admission to Theatre in the Park will not be offered to campout participants this year.  If you would like you may purchase tickets to Theatre in the Parks Production of "Mamma Mia" on their website
