Available camping facilities
 

► Tent, trailer and RV camping

Goose Creek State Park offers two camping areas: a newly opened loop with RV campsites and cabins and a primitive tent campground located between Goose and Flatty creeks.

The RV camping area has 22 sites that all have full hook-ups (electric, water and sewer). One site is wheelchair accessible. Each campsite has a tent pad, a fire ring with grill, a picnic table and a lantern hook. A bathhouse is located near the loop entrance.

Further down at the end of Campground Road, 14 well-spaced campsites can each accommodate two tents and each provide a fire ring, grill, picnic table and lantern hook. Parking for two vehicles is located at each site. One site is wheelchair accessible. Water spigots and composting toilets are located nearby.

All tent, trailer and RV campsites allow up to six people per site.

 

► Camper cabins

Six camper cabins are also available at the RV camping area. Each cabin can accommodate up to six people; one bedroom has a queen bed and the other has two sets of bunk beds. Campers must bring their own pillows and sleeping bags or linens, as these are not provided. The cabins have electric outlets and a heating and air-conditioning unit. There are no restrooms inside the cabin, and campers must use the nearby bathhouse and water spigots. A picnic table, fire ring, charcoal grill and a lantern hook are provided at each cabin.

One cabin, campsite #24, is wheelchair accessible.

Smoking is not permitted in any of the cabins. Pets, except for service animals, are not allowed. Each cabin has parking space for two vehicles only.

On weekends and holidays, a two-night minimum stay for cabins is required.

 

► Group tent camping

Two primitive group tent sites are located near the end of the main park road and are open from mid-March through late November.

Each group site has two fire pits and two grills. Up to 26 people can occupy each site.

Flush toilets and water spigots are located nearby. Reservations are required.
