Camping

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT AMENITIES:

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, trailer and RV camping

Each of the 20 wooded campsites is equipped with a picnic table and fire ring/grill. Drinking water and a bathhouse are located nearby.

Six campsites have full RV hook-ups for electric, water and sewer.

Reservations are suggested, but campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis if not reserved.   

 

Group camping

A primitive group campsite, available for organized groups, is open year-round. It includes a fire ring/grill, picnic tables and benches. A bathhouse is located nearby. Available by reservation only and reservations must be made at least 48 hours in advance. No more than 35 people can occupy the site.

 

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. Please notify camp hosts for emergencies only.
