Ruby Horsethief sites

We launch Friday for an overnight with some kids, aged 5 and 2 and a 14 year old.
I have a non free standing tipi that I can put a wood burning stove in for creating warmth.
Are the campsites there all sand or rock or ground.
I am wondering as I have different stakes for sand that are great, but not necessary to bring if there's ground there.
We have campsite # 6
Thanks for information if you can provide it, we plan on carrying our own wood along.

If your talking about Black Rocks 6, there is a fair amount of sand if I'm not mistaken.
In general I would say there is a large amount of sand at most of the RHT camp sites.
Which tipi do you have? Got an 8 man seek out side.

yeah man, blackrocks 6 is sandy.
not as much tree cover as 5 tho. i think 5's the best camp at blackrocks.

lots of different types of ground at different camps down there tho.
you only doing the 1 night?

All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine.

Appreciate the info, I figured there would be mostly sand and I bring different stakes for sand or snow than good old fashioned earth. My Kifaru tipis are my favorite shelter for quite a bit of reasons, the SO's look nice, but no need to replace what has been working for a long time. I've camped and hunted with the designer and love the r and d he puts into his products. I trust them completely in harsh conditions, not that RHT is harsh, but sure will be nice to have a fire in a tent if the kids get cold.

Yeah, one night is the plan with the kids just to get their feet wet.
