While Cob Hill boasts some great programs for all ages, not all workshops are suitable for children. Please read the workshop description carefully to see if children are allowed for a particular offering. During family-friendly events or camping reservations all children must be accompanied by a parent, guardian, or responsible teacher/chaperone at least 18 years of age. No minor children can wander the property with out a parent or guardian by their side nor can they be visible from the build site during adult workshops. Refusal to comply with this policy will result in being asked to leave the property without a refund.
We are unable to accommodate pets on the property during workshops; however, there is a boarding facility next to the veterinary clinic within 30 minutes of Cob Hill if you are unable to leave your pets at home with a trusted caretaker.
We are unable to accommodate guests during workshops. We recommend they camp at Daingerfield State Park or a nearby ABnB if they would like to see the build site at drop off/pick up.
Unauthorized fires are not permitted. While workshops sometimes include supervised bonfires for groups, individual campers may not burn unapproved fires of any size. Campfire requests MUST be pre-approved by the Campground Manager in designated locations.
