At a Glance
The campground is closed only by snow. It is maintained seasonally from Memorial Day until mid-November. Since it is one of the lowest elevation campgrounds, it is earliest (and latest) to be free of snow.
An overnight camping fee of $8.00 will be charged. An additional $5 per "extra vehicle" fee will be charged for each vehicle exceeding the maximum two vehicle per site allowance.
Late May - Oct.-Nov.
