We open for the 2017 season on May 25! When making online reservations, if the system declares "0 sites available" don't give up! Either consider re-working your dates slightly to capture available campsites OR please call or e-mail our office! We check e-mail daily and we can work with you to find sites by looking on our grid.
We are primarily a tenting campground. With a few exceptions, if you have a trailer or RV over 20' we cannot accommodate you. Please call if you have a trailer or RV longer than 20' but no longer than 23'.
Our online reservations system is new for 2017. Please contact us if you encounter difficulties. We are usually in the office two or three days a week to answer questions or assist you with reservations.
For the week of May 22 (our final week of off-season hours) our days/hours are:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 12 pm - 4 pm
We will be open daily for reservations and information starting Friday, May 26. Hours TBA.
