Tenting is included in the YNA registration. We will be camping in a large field together. For other options, Goodland does have individual wood platform campsites with water (and electric nearby) and rental cabins. Cabins are $75/night, and there is a 2-night minimum. To book a cabin or platform campsite, please contact Goodland directly at 908-850-1300.
There is no restaurant or snack bar on-site at Goodland, so YNA will be providing meals for purchase Saturday – Monday, ending with lunch on Monday. You can also bring your own food or eat at one of the many restaurants close by. There is a Shop Rite grocery store 5-10 minutes away. Goodland sells ice for coolers. For YNA meals, you will need to purchase meals in advance with your tickets. Meal ticket prices will start at $8/meal, and prices will go up as the event gets closer. You’ll collect your meal tickets when you register at the Goodland office. The deadline to buy meal tickets is Saturday, August 23rd.

By car: Goodland is located 55 miles from NYC – about a 1 – 1.5 hour drive. It’s mostly inaccessible by public transportation, so we will rely on carpooling to get people there. If you can offer a ride, especially from NYC, please contact us or post on our Facebook event wall (coming soon) for offering and asking for rides.
Directions: 51 Drakestown Road is actually the number of the residence across from the Goodland entrance. Goodland’s actual address is 50 Drakestown Road, but we find 51 works better on Google maps. The GL entrance is generally unmarked and without a gate, so look for the stone pillars and signs that say “Private.” We’re working on getting a YNA banner to hang at the entrance. As you drive in you’ll see a green lawn on the right and the Goodland sign. Continue up to the main house. There’s a parking lot on the right and the YNA camping area is in the field in front.
Checking In: Office hours are from 9am to 6pm, but you can arrive at any time. You’ll park and then register at the office at the back side of the house if it’s open. GL will give you a wristband to show you paid for your stay (along with your meal tickets if you purchased any). For Friday night arrivals: the office will be closed, but you can park, set up your tent in the big field and enjoy the facilities. (So everyone who arrives Friday night will need to register in the morning.) If the office is closed whenever you arrive, you’ll just go and register when it reopens. Jordan and Felicity will likely arrive around 8 or 9pm Friday.
By train: There are NJ transit trains that go from Penn Station to Hackettstown station, but this would only be an option on Friday. There are no trains to or from Hackettstown on holidays / weekends. You would need to find a taxi service to take you the rest of the way – about 2 miles to Goodland.
YNA will have deeply discounted rates for this weekend at Goodland that you won’t get at any other time! You are not required to be a YNA member to attend. However, becoming a member is a great way to support our organization and helps keep us going. YNA members also get a discount for this event. Click here to get a YNA membership through our website or you can purchase one with your tickets. As always we appreciate your support!
COST / FEES
Here’s how it works: you will pay TWO fees — the YNA fee in advance online and a Goodland grounds fee upon arrival.
Once you pay for the YNA fee, you will get a confirmation email with a PDF ticket(s) attached. Be prepared to show the confirmation email or ticket at the office (either is fine). You can print the email or ticket, or save paper & show it on your phone at the Goodland office to enter as a YNA attendee. If you prefer, there’s also an Eventbrite app for displaying tickets on mobile (see link in your confirmation email). You must pay the YNA fee in advance online and show proof of registration in order to pay the special rates at Goodland (cash and credit card accepted). Otherwise, regular Goodland rates will apply.
Goodland Grounds Fees:
Friday night after 6pm) through Monday — $50 per single / couple

1. The gathering officially starts on Friday at 6pm, but if you’d like to come for the day Friday and stay through Monday, it’d be $65. You can also come just for the day on Friday for $20.
