What to Expect: MLK BBQ Cook-Off & 5k Color Run

Kick off the new year at Splashway Campground for our first big event of the year! Come for the weekend for a family getaway or, if you live locally, join us for a day of family fun! Read below on what to expect from your day trip or weekend getaway to Splashway Campground for MLK weekend.

Open To All – January 13th

Whether you live in the area or just want to join us for a day of fun, all are welcome on Saturday, January 13th. Here’s what your family can expect on your day trip!

5k Color Run

Run, jog, or walk our family-friendly 5k Color Run through the campground! Wear something you don’t mind getting covered in vibrant color and don’t forget to take your post-run family photo. Our 5k will kick off at 8:30am and we’ll be giving Top 3 prizes to the male and female in each age group. Registration is available online now (at a discount, too!) and required to participate in the race. Learn more about age groups and registration here!

Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner

The Hideaway Express will be open in the Camp Store early in the morning serving up artisan coffee and scratch-made breakfast favorites like cinnamon rolls, breakfast tacos, and more! After the race, grab a bite at The Hideaway for lunch or come back later for dinner and live music featuring a local musical artist!

Washer Tournament

Hang around after the race to enter our Washer Tournament! Fans of cornhole will love this game and, if you’re not familiar, don’t worry! It’s easy to learn and you’ll even have a chance to win a prize.

Your family can also enjoy a round of putt putt or laser tag! Sign up in the Camp Store during your visit.
