Upper Campground Washhouse Closed   

Due to the onset of below freezing nightly temperatures, we have had to close the upper campground washhouse (central to sites 1-40) in the family campground.  The lower washhouse (central to sites 43-73) will remain open until Monday, December 2, when it too will close for the season.  A frost-free water faucet will remain turned on near the lower washhouse throughout the winter months.
