Rate This Event


Join us at the 31st Annual Ranger Springs Skinners Spring Rendezous on April 6-8, 2018 northeast of Decatur, Texas. We will be raffling off a 50 cal. Percussion, beginning with this Spring Rendezvous, and holding the drawing for it at our Fall Rendezvous in November. Enjoy competition events: Rifle, pistol, primitive archery, fire starting, knife and tomahawk throwing. Other events will include: Cooking contest and novelty shoot.

The Ranger Springs Skinners Spring Rendezous closed to the general public – you must be in period dress to attend.

The Ranger Springs Skinners Spring Rendezvous is a pre-1840s event; period clothing is required at all times. If you will contact us, we will do our best to help you! Sunday mornings are open to the public, but we generally start packing up early. So while you can talk to us and see some things on Sunday, don’t expect to come into a historically accurate camp on Sunday. Most of us have long drives to get back to ‘the real world’, so plan to visit before 10:00. We meet near Decatur, Texas.

Please be respectful of your fellow rendezvous-goers. Make every effort to keep all modern items out of sight at all times. This includes plastic bags, non-period food containers and bags. Remember to leave your camp site cleaner than you found it. Following these few guidelines will improve your Ranger Springs Skinners Spring Rendezous experience as well as those who camp around you. No vehicles allowed in camp on Saturday or Sunday until after the closing ceremony on Sunday morning.

Camp Fees:
$10.00 per camp
$5.00 per extra adult or walk-in
Bring your own firewood and water.
