Family camping

Choose from 106 campsites for tents and RVs. Each site in the family campground is equipped with a picnic table and grill. Fires must be contained in the grill provided or you may use your own grill/stove. Drinking water and modern restrooms with showers are conveniently located. There are no hookups for RVs, but a dump station is provided. Camp Loop C has 22 sites with electrical hook-ups and offers six accessible campsites and a fully accessible shower house. A maximum of six people and two tents are allowed to stay on each campsite. An amphitheater, where interpretive programs are often held, is located near the campground.

Primitive camping

Backpack into the woods for camping in a wilderness setting. The primitive campground is a two-mile hike from the park office. A pit toilet is provided in the camping area, but drinking water and all other supplies must be carried to the site. A backpack camping permit is required and may be obtained from park staff. All trash must be packed out.

Group camping

The group tent camping area is located near the river and can be reached by a gravel loop road. Six sites, each with picnic tables and a grill, provide a wilderness camping experience for organized groups. Fires must be contained in the grill provided or you may use your own grill/stove. Drinking water and an accessible shower house are centrally located. Campsite #4 is fully accessible.

Vacation cabins

Six rustic family vacation cabins offer the opportunity to get away from it all. Located in a wooded section of the park, each cabin has a bathroom, living room, fireplace, kitchen with dining space and two bedrooms. The fully-equipped cabins accommodate up to six people each. One cabin is fully accessible. There is a two night minimum for cabin rental. Pets are not allowed in the cabins or cabin area.

IMPORTANT: Not all campsites have identical amenities. Read the campsite information on the reservations website to preview photos of campsites; check availability and fees; and find out whether a specific site is handicap accessible; has access to water, showers, or restrooms; has electric hookup; and other important information.
