This year we are at a BRAND NEW SITE!  It's the beautiful Pali Mountain Retreat and Conference Center, (see site map) located between the Southern California communities of Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear, just outside the scenic town of Running Springs California. The address is 30778 Highway 18, Running Springs, California 92382.  Nestled in the heart of the San Bernardino Mountains, this 250-area site is ideally suited for the Ale.  It's less than a two hour drive from Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties.  For those flying in, the closet airport is Ontario



Use Google maps (to the right) for custom directions, or view/print out the suggested directions put together by the site (they warn that GPS systems get "confused" in the mountains).

In addition here are some other sample directions:


The mountain retreat cabins, surrounded by oak and pine trees, combine the best of rustic group living with modern facilities. Comfortable bunks, private bathrooms and no distractions to interrupt conversations (or sleep!) from lights out to breakfast. Each retreat cabin features solid wood built-in bunk beds, radiant floor heating, and one to three full bathroom and shower facilities. Guests bring their own twin bedding or sleeping bags.  Some bedding is available to rent for an additional fee.  Wi-fi is provided in the main lodge and most meeting room areas. The cabins are considered "distraction-free zones" so no in-room access.

What to Bring:

Here's the suggested packing list from the camp site.
