Important Camping Information:
  • The campgrounds are fully reservable. Reservable sites may be available on a walk-up registration basis if the site is not reserved. Before occupying a site, check with the park staff or follow the directions on the posted card or signs.
  • During the on-season, firewood and ice can be purchased daily during check station hours.
  • During the off-season (Nov. 1 through April 14), firewood can be purchased through the campground host or at the park office. Ice is not available for purchase during the off-season.
  • Occupants of the Equestrian Campground must camp with a horse.
  • During the off-season, potable water is available from the frost-free spigot at Campsite 69. 
  • Campers planning to carry in firewood must comply with current firewood advisories.
  • Eight walk-in campsites are available for reservation. These 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.

Campground Gate Information

The campground gate closes at 10 p.m. in the on-season and at 8 p.m. during the off-season. Campers need to be sure to arrive prior to gate closure time.
