The SAWUURA property occupies a long rectangle traversing the floor of a pocket valley and extending part way up the slopes of the hills to the north and nearly to the crest of the steeper ridge to the south.  About half way down the length of the property is the outdoor kitchen and gathering area at the edge of the largest of a number of meadows.  The "summer cabins," small screened in, floored, and roofed wooden shelters, lie immediately across the creek from the kitchen area.  About two dozen campsites are strung out along the road from the kitchen area on to the West.

SAWUURA is a primitive retreat with its own water, but no electricity or telephone.  Water is available from a well and is gravity-fed to faucets at three of the four cabins, near campsites and at the kitchen area.  There are solar-heated showers and fiberglass pit toilets.  There is a central bulletin board on the main road near the kitchen with maps of the area and current news.  The open air kitchen consists of a propane stove, two double sinks and counter tops. There are picnic tables in two covered ramadas and one fire pit.

There are two fully enclosed  cabins on the property.  One is the Stone Cabin located on the hill across the road and to the north of the windmill.  This is a primitive facility with no water up a short but steep trail.  It is available for use only during non-event periods and that use is closely governed by the Stone Cabin Use Guidelines.  Another cabin, below the kitchen area, although enclosed is still under construction and is not available for occupancy at any time.  A primitive trail follows the inner perimeter of the property and other trails inside SAWUURA connect to various scenic points. 

Please be sure to make yourself familiar with all the relevant documents on our use guidelines page.
