Ferry. Our sites are designed for both small and large groups using
our river rental services. Fees are $12 per
night per person. Group
rates available for 25 people or more and are $10 per person.
Site assignments are subject to change but generally
are reserved for each particular party. Campsite maps and assignments
are posted on a paddle outside our front office door when campers arrive
after hours. NO PETS ALLOWED
Check out time 10AM unless otherwise agreed.
ALL camping must be PREPAID by credit card and reserved in advance. Last minute sites are NOT available. Sites are NOT AVAILABLE to those that bring their own river equipment.....ie: you MUST rent river equipment from us in order to camp due to our seasonal basis and demand. We do NOT rent camping gear.
NOTICE: If you intend to be loud with voice and music please camp elsewhere. If you intend to get drunk please camp elsewhere. If you do not respect the outdoors and throw cigarette butts or other trash directly on the ground please camp elsewhere. We will evict anyone who is loud, littering, or intoxicated without refund.
You may drive your vehicle directly to your assigned site. Our sites are for primitive tent camping and due to popular demand are only available for our equipment rental guests. We cannot offer electric hookups or accommodate Recreational Vehicles other than "popup" camper trailers. There is potable water available at our cold water washoff station at the garden area near our offices. While we cannot absolutely guarantee campsite assignments per your request, you are certainly welcome to request a particular site. Requested sites are subject to change without prior notice. We will do our best to hold your requested site for you but there are certain times that require us to make adjustments.
site has a park service type picnic table and a fire pit for campfires.
These pits can accommodate grill tops that campers may want to bring.
Some campers bring their propane grills from home to provide for reliable
cooking. We keep all camp areas mowed and kept very neat. We are fortunate
that we rarely have problems with mosquitoes but you should come prepared
for the normal insects you would encounter in the woods or in field
areas. Campers are welcome to bring their own firewood (NO treated lumber
or nails) or we can provide firewood (limited) at $20 per load at
normal business operating hours only (8am to 6pm).
NOT put ANY nails in trees or CHOP on any trees in the campgrounds.
