Ozark Highlands Trail Association 2023 Rendezvous

April 21, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - April 23, 2023 @ 3:00 pm

Ozark Highlands Trail Association 2023 Rendezvous
All Sports Productions Ad
The OHTA 2023 Rendezvous is on for April 21, 22, and 23 at Quarry Park (located near the dam of Norfork Lake).
Group Area 1 has been reserved by OHTA for those who want to camp there on Friday night and/or Saturday night, April 21 and 22. Group Area 1 will support up to 120 people with tent and RV (limited) camping allowed. Also, there is a restroom in the group area.
Pavilion Area 1 has been reserved by OHTA for the catered meal scheduled for the evening of Saturday, April 22. The OHTA annual meeting will follow the meal, and we’re hoping to have a speaker or two for the meeting.
There will be a get-together for all who want to attend at Norfork Brewing Company in the town of Norfork on Friday evening, April 21, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
A hike is scheduled for Saturday morning, April 22 (start time to be determined). The hike will start at Matney Trailhead, and we’ll travel to Matney Camp on the bank of the White River. We’ll have lunch at the camp and then return to Matney Trailhead.
A hike is scheduled for Sunday morning, April 23 (start time to be determined). The hike will be along two sections of the Norfork Trail that run from Sycamore Highlands to Norfork Dam for a total distance of about 5.2 miles (if the group prefers, we can cut the distance in half).


If you are planning to attend this year’s Rendezvous, please contact us at ohta@ozarkhighlandstrail.com no later than April 1 so we can make arrangements for catering Saturday evening’s meal. Please let us know the number of folks who will be in your group. PLEASE NOTE, THE SATURDAY EVENING MEAL IS FOR CURRENT OHTA MEMBERS ONLY
If you’re planning on camping in a travel trailer or motor-home at Dam-Quarry Campground (the campground that is adjacent to Norfork River), you may want to reserve a spot as soon as possible. A quick check today of site availability on April 21 and 22 revealed there are only 3 sites left that provide both water and electricity. There are still several sites that provide electricity (you’d have to fill your tank at the water station).
If you’d prefer not to attend the Rendezvous but would like to join either or both of the hikes, you are very welcome to do so!
