Re: Hello All

Aquaclick, Welcome to eplaya. Changes? Yes there are plenty. It's still a wonderful place to spend your vacation time. You'll need a vehicle pass as well as a ticket. The price has gone up considerably and it's harder to lay your hands on one. There are tons of placed camps so individuals are given ...

Re: The Bar 2017 Edition

Good morning campers. Well, now that the holidays are behind us it's time for serious planning. Don't worry. You don't have to actually do anything. Just think about stuff. 1. Sew a new cover for the shade structure. 2. Drill holes through the manikins so they fit over the uprights. 3.Wash the cushi...

Re: Looking forward to join any group of people on the way to 2018's event

Welcome to ePlaya Dennis. Your best bet is to search out Russian travelers/burners to hook up with. There are plenty. When the board here gets more active in the spring you'll find camps to join. You should do some research and contact them. Don't expect individuals or camps to read this and contact...
