BEARS ACTIVE IN AREA: Keep food away from all animals. Never leave food or coolers unattended. Keep a clean campsite.

Juniper Family Campground is located near the entrance to the park, just off Highway 4. After passing through the park entrance station take the first right turn. There are 3 loops in Juniper Campground. As Juniper Campground rarely fills to capacity, only one or two of the loops may be open at any given time and are first come first served, no reservations are taken, and rarely needed.

Cost for family camping is $12/night with a fifty percent discount for holders of Inter-Agency Senior or Access passes. Fees are paid by credit card only at a self-registration kiosk located near the entrance to the campground. Campers wanting to pay cash for camping fees will need to do so at the park visitor center during business hours.

Reservations are taken for two sites in the Abert's squirrel loop which are reserved for small groups (10 - 20 people). The cost for these group sites is $35/night. Reservations for these group sites are available at or you can call 1-877-444-6777.
