Shingleroof Campground

Facilities

 

 Tabernacle

Open-air Tabernacle reminiscent of the traditional brush arbor.  Plenty of seating with an up-to-date sound system, electric lights, ceiling fans, and concrete floor.  There is a raised chancel with altar and choir pews.  There is also lots of old oak trees around the Tabernacle to spread out a blanket or set up a lawn chair under.  Services are broadcast on FM radio with coverage throughout the campground.

Dining Hall

Fully equipped and air conditioned dining hall.  There are two banquet rooms, commercial kitchen, and public restroom facilities.  The wrap-around front porch is complete with many rocking chairs and ceiling fans.  From the rocking chairs you have a wonderful view of camp life at Shingleroof.

RV and Tent Camping

There are currently ten campsites with complete hook-up, including sewerage.  Located directly across from the dining hall, the RV campers have convenient access to all of the campground.  In addition to the RV sites, there are sixteen campsites for future expansion.  These sites can be used by campers that like a pioneer setting.

Camp Store

During the week of campmeeting.  A Camp Store is operated in the basement of the dining hall.  The camp store carries drinks and snacks for kids of any age.  Many ice cream snacks are always available, and many nights, after the evening service, fresh churned ice cream is available.

Public Restrooms

Public Restroom facilities are located in the parking lot next to the dining hall.  For the 2004 campmeeting we have just completed a beautiful renovation of the public restrooms.  Everything is new and the restrooms are air conditioned to keep down humidity.  There are also restrooms in the dining hall.

Parking

Parking for the dining hall is adjacent to the building.  For services, park anywhere.  Free parking all around the campground.

Future "Tent" Sites

Shingleroof Campground has been here for many generations and it is the purpose of the trustees to make sure that it is here for generations to come.  Looking at that purpose, the trustees have established an area for family "tents" to be built.  This expansion will allow the construction of approximately seventeen new "tents."  Information about building your family tent is available from the trustees.

Nature Trail System

In 2001 there was an expansion of our nature trails.  The new trail is about one mile long, and encircles the campground.  This wooded walk is well kept, and not difficult.  It is a very pleasant walk in the woods for fun or exercise.  The Nature trails include the spring area where you can find a picnic area and a gazebo for relaxing in the shade.

The Ten Commandments Trail

Our latest addition to the Nature trail system connects and expands the original nature trail.  The Ten Commandments Trail is about 1-1/2 miles and has locations throughout the trail for prayer and rest.  There are a total of eleven kiosks with a short Bible lesson on each from the late Dr. Charles Allen.  At each kiosk there is also a bench with one of the ten commandments.  Walkers can rest, pray, and meditate on the verses as they exercise.
