Can't you see you & your friends at this  years event.

Our new site of 120 acres at approximately 5000 feet elevation is located at the base of the pristine Pine Valley Mountains in Southern Utah. Our site’s name is Stone Cliff Canyon and is nestled among the piñon pines and juniper/cedar trees; it has a panoramic view of the mountains and easy access to the site from a main highway.

With the weather in Southern Utah perfect for a fantastic spring Rendezvous, we invite everyone to join us. We have warm days and cool to cold nights. Buckskins are worn during the day, with capotes, campfires and lodge stoves a must at night. The backdrop for our Rendezvous includes the beauty of snow on the mountain with the majestic red and purple mountains that surround the site. The Shoot ranges will test even the seasoned shooter, our Primitive Archery and Knife & Hawk events are unsurpassed anywhere in the West. Make our Rendezvous your spring getaway!

THIS IS NOW A THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, AND SUNDAY RENDEZVOUS with the following events: Rifle Walk Thru, Pistol Walk Thru, Smoothbore, Shotgun, Primitive Archery, Knife & Hawk, Atlatl, Flint & Steel, Trail-Walk, Cannon Shoot (added for 2009), Kids Games, Children’s “just for fun” Archery, Children’s “competition” Archery, Children’s long bows only, Candy Cannon, Utah History Day for the School Age Children (volunteers are always needed on that Thursday afternoon).

Period of Dress is Pre-1840 (encouraged but not required). Site access: located about 1/2 mile off main highway - Utah State Hwy 18 - accessible over a good dirt road. There is a choice of Primitive or Tin-Tee-Pee camp areas; a Horse Camp is also available. It is a dry camp with firewood available; burn barrels or above-ground fires only. Primitive campers: please park and walk through to find your camp area; this will eliminate vehicle congestion in the primitive areas. There is a 1 hour camp unloading time from Thursday on. If you come early please do not leave your vehicles in the primitive areas after set up. We want to keep a Rendezvous atmosphere at all times.

TRADERS – PRE-REGISTRATION FOR SPOT IS REQUIRED. PLEASE SEE THE “TRADER PAGE”

Your wares must be authentic to the pre-1840 era and our Trade Commissioner will enforce that requirement. Blanket traders are welcome - with no tailgating allowed. All food vendors are required to have a food handler’s permit. Traders and campers are always welcome early. Please make arrangements ahead of time.

THE PUBLIC IS INVITED AND WELCOME.

Just a mile back down the highway to the south lies Baker Reservoir, which gives our Trapping Party and friends another great outdoor option: FISH! Bring your tackle and eat fish for dinner for a change! The Reservoir has native German Browns as well as Rainbow Trout. There’s a small number of Forest Service “tin-tee-pee” sites there as well; these are first come first served.
