Camping Reservation System
Campground Reservation System
The National Recreation Reservation Center (1-877-444-6777) allows you to reserve a specific site at your favorite campground. Simply tell the Recreation Specialist the type of adventure you want - hiking, boating, fishing, etc. - and he/she will help locate the National Forest that's right for you.
Family Campsites on the National Reservation System can be reserved from five (5) to 240 days before arrival. Group sites can be reserved 360 days ahead. Visitors should make their campsite reservations as early in the year as possible to avoid busy signals at the Reservation System office, and to assure reservations for the desired sites.
Call the Reservation Center to make phone-in reservations at least 5 days in advance of the first night of our trip. Mail in reservations must be made at least 10 days in advance. Call:
Reservations are advised for all selected National Forest campgrounds during "peak seasons". The peak season for most campgrounds is Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Applications received earlier will be returned without processing. Be sure to include alternate dates and campgrounds on your applications.
