Red River Ramble 2023

Sat, Nov 4, 2023
Location: Texas Elks Camp (formerly All Saints' Camp), Pottsboro (Map)

Texas Elks Camp -- previously known as All Saints' Camp and Texoma Lutheran Camp -- has become a favorite venue for North Texas orienteers over the decades! Situated on the picturesque south shore of Lake Texoma, this camp includes over 600 acres of wooded, often hilly terrain and an extensive trail network with lots of unique structures. It’s a beautiful venue and a wonderful time of year to be in the woods.
