KENNELS - Top grade kennel facilities are available for use at Tar River. There are 150 public kennels that are roomy enough to hold 5 hounds each and there are other kennels at our disposal on site. In all, Tar River is equipped to house 1000 hounds comfortably.
CAMPERS FOR RENT AND CAMPER SPACES - We have camper spaces for rent at $15 per night each hunt. Permanent camper spaces are $200 for the entire year.
BUNK HOUSE - The bunk house has been completely renovated with new furniture downstairs including a big screen TV with DirecTV. The two bathrooms located downstairs have been tastefully decorated and the entire downstairs lounge area has a fresh coat of paint. Upstairs there are 12 new mattresses and beds and the floor has been carpeted. Use of the bunk house is $15 per night per person and a visiting association has the option of renting out the entire bunk house to house "judges only." Please contact James Ray for those prices.
LADIES RETREAT - We are now 'girl friendly' at Tar River with the ladies room undergoing a complete revamping. Fresh paint, new pictures and wall hanging decor, complete with fresh curtains and a 'stained glass window' add a feminine touch. In addition, there is now a lounge area for the ladies and small children. A place to get out of the cold where our kids can play with a few toys provided or perhaps color and read a book. We have added a "training potty" for our littlest hunters which is located in the ladies room and an infant changing table and play pen, also in the ladies retreat.
HIGH TECH - For sporting events, we are fully equipped with a computer, printer and we provide, for a fee, our very best data entry person, Richelle Baer. Association secretaries now have the option of having their complete hunting program results, whether National or Master's program, loaded onto a thumb drive for the convenience of sending the results into The Chase and The Hunter's Horn. For Master's affiliated hunts, daily score sheets can now be loaded onto the Master's website if so desired and National affiliated hunts can email their results to The Chase immediately upon the conclusion of the hunt at the secretary's discretion.
Pavilion - In addition to the bench shows, our new pavilion has also become a gathering place for fellowship and fun. Many of our visitors bring their corn hole boards and washer board games so that they can play under the lights after the sun goes down. Children are encouraged to bring sidewalk chalk to write and draw on the concrete. On Sunday mornings at 8:15, Pastor Jonathan Barbee leads us in our Sunday morning worship service.
