The small, quaint village in the valley of Friendship is home to the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association. Each fall and spring the Association hosts national competitions when people come from all over the country and world to compete. Primitive lifestyles of pre-1840s can be seen on the hillside across from the shooting range. Education has become a passion for the organization and special events are held throughout the year to teach people of all ages about history and firearms.
Each fall and spring, during the shoots, flea markets are held in and around town. Treasures can be bought and sold throughout the week-long events.
Campsites: 300, hook-ups and primitive
Open all year, during NMLRA and other events, including Whispering Beard Folk Festival (whisperingbeard.com) and the Friendship Music Festival (www.friendshipmusicfestival.com)
