Important Camping Information:
  • Campsites are available only on a walk-up registration basis and cannot be reserved. Before occupying a site, check with the park staff or follow the directions on the posted card or signs.
  • There is no showerhouse or dump station. Water and a vault toilet are available in the camping area. Water is available only during the on-season (April 1-Oct. 31).
  • Campers planning to carry in firewood must comply with current firewood advisories.
  • Twelve walk-in campsites are available for walk-in users. These sites are suitable only for tent camping.
  • Camping is limited to any 15 days within a 30-consecutive-day period at any one park or historic site.
  • We recommend no more than two dogs per campsite. Pets must be supervised and kept on leashes no longer than 10 feet at all times. Portable fences, shock collars and other electronic devices do not meet these requirements. Pet waste bags are available in most locations. Other than service animals, pets are not allowed inside any building that is not part of the Cabins for Canines program, or in public swimming areas or waters reserved for fishing.
