General Advisory

08/24/2017 to 05/24/2018
We will be removing the courtesy docks from our boat ramp for the winter during the week of September 25th. We anticipate having the courtesy docks back in place in mid-May, 2018. Beginning October 1st, 2017, Loops D, E, and F will become available for first-come, first-served camping only during the winter months. Loops A, B & C and the horse camp will remain open to reservations year-round. Please note that this is a seasonal closure. Loops D, E and F will again be reservable from May 25th through September 30th, 2018. IMPORTANT: Winter rains bring flooding to the campground. Please understand that it may become necessary to completely close some sites or sections of the campground due to high water. Please also be prepared to accept another site if your preferred site is unusable.
