For the seventh year, the border region between Northshield and Artemisia is the site of a raid.

Northshield heroically drove back the rampaging hordes of Artemisian invaders last year. But, their appetites whetted by the lush lands they saw, they pledged to return to settle the score.

Come to our event and camp along the beautiful North Cannonball River in ND.

Stone Butte Ranch is a beautiful site along the Cannonball River.

This is a camping event with limited cabins available for rent. The site has toilets, running water and showers.

There is a main hall for indoor activities, and for feast. If the weather is nice, we may feast out under the stars.

Some noteworthy additions to this site, is that it allows and has facilities for equestrian. If you choose to bring your horses, you are responsible for all of the rules required by North Dakota (weed free hay, etc..).

Also, if you want to bring your camper, the site has ample space for parking campers.

*Dogs are welcome, although they MUST be leashed at all times, and are not allowed in the buildings. We will follow the Master Niklos Rule of dogs on site: They are solely the owner’s responsibility. If you take care of them, and they cause no problems, then everything is good. If they cause problems, you will be asked to take them off site*

**The northern plains in August can see a wide range of weather. Please pack garb and camping gear appropriate to a wide range of temperatures and weather conditions.**
