The 257-site campground includes 200 sites available by reservation only; 5 for youth group reservations; and 52 sites for first-come/first-served campers. Although hook-ups are not available, RVs are welcome in sites where they fit. Reserved camping will be available from late May to mid-October. Reservations for campsites may be made by calling the Reservation Office, Monday through Friday, from January through the end of the season. Campers interested in possible first-come/first-served camping prior to the opening of the reservation period should call the park directly in late April for further information.
