CANCELLED – 2020 Lumberjack Rally at Mitchell State Park

June 11, 2020 June 14, 2020

The 2020 Lumberjack Rally is cancelled. With the continuing health concerns, we can’t take the risk of holding the event. No rally fees were collected so you just need to cancel your reservations with the State.

As of right now the parks are still planning to be open by then so you could keep your reservation and just camp at you own risk, that is your personal choice.

We hope to hold the rally in 2021. Stay home, stay safe and we will see you all around the campfire soon!

    Too early to tell. Much of it will depend on the status of the state park system. Most rallies in April have been cancelled and we expect most of May will be cancelled as well but beyond that is unclear.
