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.
Post trip picnic area is also available at $6 per person......reservations required.
Total amount of trip fee required as deposit for guaranteed reservations. Payment by cash, credit card, travelers checks, money orders, or personal checks. Last minute cancellations or "no shows" will forfeit any deposits submitted. Cancellations must be made 10 more more days in advance to receive refunds. Without deposit of trip fee NOTHING is guaranteed.
Also, make sure to review our alcohol policy.
We are unable to accommodate RV's and large trailers due to an elevated railroad crossing going to our campgrounds.

We have a new campground agreement that must be signed by each group leader stating that their group will follow all policies.

ALL camping must be reserved by credit card 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. PLEASE NO FIREWORKS!!

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.

Each 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).

We have several areas designed for sports here at our base camp. There is a volleyball court area, a paved basketball court and field areas suitable for throwing frisbees, football, or playing croquet or soccer. You may fish by wading or from the bank. You may also swim as long as you realize that you are doing so AT YOUR OWN RISK and that there are NO LIFEGUARDS on duty.

For your pet's safety and in consideration of other campers, PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED..

DO NOT put ANY nails in trees or CHOP on any trees in the campgrounds.

These sites are available ONLY to our river equipment rental guests. Alcoholic beverages must be confined to each individual campsite (moderation a MUST!). Loudness (both vocal and musical) or intoxication will be grounds for dismissal from camping area with NO refunds. Check in times are during normal business office hours and if you arrive after hours (with reservations) a campsite map will be posted at the main office entrance.
