Instead of hosting our full-scale music festival, The Fall Campout @ Duck Creek, this year, we will be focusing our time and energy on throwing a big ol’ Duck Creek party as we pursue a very important and personal goal – ending cancer!

Join us for Party in the Pine Grove for Pelotonia, a night of camping at Duck Creek and music in the Pine Grove from our boys, Hocking River String Band, and a couple of friends (TBA).

We'll see you at Duck Creek!

Like many of you, our family and friends have been impacted by this horrible disease. To do our part to help find a cure, several of us began riding in and fundraising for Pelotonia a few years ago. Riding Pelotonia and throwing this party is our way to remember those we have lost (including Aunt Sandy who was taken too soon by Multiple Myeloma just days before we hosted the 2014 Fall Campout), to celebrate those who have won or are winning the fight (including our dad/father-in- law, Bill, the co-owner of the Duck Creek property who is celebrating over a year in remission after KICKING CANCER’S ASS), and to do our part to give our little Duck Creekers an opportunity to know a cancer free world. This year, over 7000 riders will be hitting the road on August 6/7. Duck Creek's own Mackenzie, Kyle, and Mallory will once again be training for and raising the funds to ride in Pelotonia. We are also stoked that Morgan and Bill (yup, that same cancer-surviving farmer that hasn't ridden a bike in about 40 years) will be saddling up as first time riders this year.

Pelotonia is a three-day experience that includes a weekend of cycling, entertainment and volunteerism which focuses on raising money for cancer research at THE Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. More than $106 MILLION has been raised for cancer research in Pelotonia’s first seven years.

Can I bring my pet?

Unfortunately, no; pets are strictly prohibited. You will be turned away if you try to bring a pet on the festival grounds. As dog lovers ourselves, we know it makes things more difficult. However, there are several reputable kennels in the area.

Can I camp by my car?

For the safety of our guests there will be NO car camping (camping directly beside your car) permitted at the Duck Creek Log Jam. The camping option you choose, weather conditions, and when you arrive will all play a role in determining how far you will need to carry your camping gear, but typically the distance is not far at all. We recommend packing as light as possible, using multiple small coolers rather than one large cooler, and bringing a wagon or small cart to assist you with transporting your gear. Note: wagons are great for transporting supplies like chairs and coolers to and from the stage area.

Is there cell phone service?

It all depends on what carrier you have and where you are standing. Be prepared for cell service to be unpredictable.

Can I attend this event if I do not want to camp?

Yes, there are a variety of cabins and hotels in the area for those who do not want to rough it. All non-campers must leave the venue within a 1/2 hour of the conclusion of the nights final performance.

Are campfires allowed?

For the safety of our guests, individual campfires are not permitted. There will be community campfires in designated areas.

Are there showers?

Nope, but our two-acre pond and Duck Creek itself can be mighty refreshing.

Will there be ice for sale?

No... Please plan accordingly.
