Important Camping Information:
  • 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 (April through October), camp fee collection is handled with the campground hosts on site #1. During the off-season (November through March), camp fee collection is handled at the self-pay drop box in the breezeway of the showerhouse. Camp fee collection is also handled at the park office during office hours year-round. 
  • During the off-season (November through March), potable water, modern restrooms and showers are not available in the campground. Campers should plan to bring their own water during that time. A frost-free hydrant is located adjacent to Highway 104 just west of the Interpretive Center/Park Office near the north entrance of the park. 

  • Campers planning to carry in firewood must comply with current firewood advisories.

  • Camping is limited to any 15 days within a 30-consecutive-day period at any one park or historic site.
