Important Camping Information:
  • The campground is fully reservable during the on-season. A small portion of sites are reservable year-round. Reservable sites may be available to first-come, first-served users on a day-by-day basis if the site is not reserved.
  • For weekend reservations, there is a required two-night minimum stay of Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday.
  • Parking pads vary in length from 38 feet to 80 feet, with the electric sites having the longer pads.
  • A woodlot is open in the evening during the on-season for campers to purchase wood. During the off-season, the fee collector will sell wood upon request.
  • Showers, the dump station, laundry and water are not available during the off-season (November through March). Campers should plan to bring their own water during that time.
  • Campers planning to carry in firewood must comply with current firewood advisories.
  • Parking of watercraft or all-terrain vehicle (ATV) trailers off of the campsite pad (usually in the grass) is permitted at this facility.
