Book your accommodations directly with Lake Murray Lodge reservations (call them at 580-223-6600). You can reserve a room in the lodge (equivalent to a hotel room on the lake) OR you can book a cabin, which is more remote (recommended!). Rate is similar either way (around $130-150/night). The cabins have their own kitchen, the hotel rooms do not. Bring your own pots /pans/plates/etc. though if you're in a cabin and plan to cook.
Want a roommate to make it cheaper? Go ahead and book your room, then let Melissa know you want her to pair you up with another yogi. She'll do her best.
1) A folding chair (for dinner outside on Friday night & the campfire on Saturday night),
3) FOOD (Foggy Bottom Kitchen, the lakefront restaurant, will be open from 8am-9pm on Saturday for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you'd like to do your own thing, bring your own meals & kitchen equipment. Cabins have kitchens but not equipment or plates/dishes. For Sunday breakfast, you'll need your own food, as the restaurant is closed. We are bringing a meal for Friday night!)
