Campgrounds of Gleann Abhann

This page, I hope, will be a living and growing page. It is a resource for Gleann Abhann's groups and auctocrats. I admit my reasons for making it are selfish -- I want to see more close events that my family can attend. But I have a feeling that I am not the only one with this selfish wish. I want this information to be easily available in hopes that groups in the Kingdom will host more events, both big and small.

The campsites listed are mainly ones with cabins or dorms -- face it, the weather in Gleann Abhann often makes camping miserable.

Please send information to me at EsperanzaDeNavarra@yahoo.com
- if your group has a tenting only site they often use
- AND ESPECIALLY, if you have recently autocrated an event, I would appreciate it if you would send me all the details on the site from # of bathrooms to whether or not we need to buy hand papertowels to the condition of everything, and I will create a page for that site to help other autocrats

Any site you are interested in, call for more information. The information here may change.
