Not all campsites have identical amenities. Read the campsite information on the reservations website to see photos of campsites; check availability and fees; find out whether a specific site is wheelchair accessible, has access to water, bathouses or pit toilets, or has electric hookup; and learn other important information.


Tent camping

A primitive family campground is located between Goose and Flatty creeks. Fourteen well-spaced tent sites amid towering pines include vehicle parking, tables and fire pits. Toilet facilities and water spigots are available along the campground road. Occupancy is limited to no more than six people per site.


Group camping

Two primitive group tent sites that includes tables, grills and vehicle parking are located near the end of the main park road. Flush toilets and water are located nearby. The sites, each capable of accommodating up to 30 people, are open from mid-March through late November. Reservations (with a fee) are required.


NOTE – Gate access for campers:

Park gates are closed and locked at posted closing times for your protection. There will be no exiting or entering the gates after the closing time. All visitors who are not spending the night need to be out by closing time. If you leave the park and do not return before closing time, you will not be able to re-enter. Check with the park office during office hours for the after-hours emergency phone number.
