Tent Camping


Twenty-four tent sites are scattered throughout the trees and terrain offering a variety of camping options. Tent sites are accessed on foot. If you can drive to it, it is not a tent site. Make your selection of a first come - first served tent site based on whether or not you want to be: secluded, closer to parking, closer to bathrooms, or closer to pools. Most enjoy shade, have been nicely leveled, and include a picnic table. Vehicle sites are designated and individually reserved.

Tent sites are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Reservations are strongly recommended. Reserve a tent site designation (not a specific site) in advance. During warmer seasons, we routinely reach our capacity limit for the number of people permitted and all tent sites are occupied.
