My estimate is that is could host up to 80 people. Is amazingly beautiful. It has built in infrastructure of 4 bunkhouses, beautiful path spaces, a large kitchen structure, an outdoor firepit and a magical cave

Of the five sites I explored, this one called me the most. The trees are ancient & covered in moss. There's a couple of trails that lead out into the wilds with signs that say "beware, this forest was burned and there could be falling objects…"

The Question with Clark Creek is the site space. Besides the 4 bunkhouses, there aren't too many places to camp - altho if we cap the gathering at 80, it should work well.

The meadow is close to a road, which didn't look well traveled, altho there are several campgrounds in the area, so it could be busy during the summer. On the drive in - you get to see some really devastated land, and then gather in some really beautiful land.
