The campground is open year round. We highly recommend using the reservation company.

There is a 50% discount ($10.00) for America the Beautiful Senior Pass and America the Beautiful Access card holders.

How Fees are Used
The proposed changes in fees will fund projects that directly benefit our park, like campground improvement projects starting this fall using fees collected in 2016. Planned projects include camp site refurbishment, replacing worn out picnic tables and grills, visitor center upgrades and the addition of new campfire circles.

Fees collected are to be used to fund projects that address deferred maintenance needs, provide new visitor programs and services, protect resources, and improve and rehabilitate facilities for visitors. The majority of funds used for national park management come from Congressional appropriations. By using collected recreation fees, visitors help the National Park Service cover part of the cost of their visit.
The fees also help the National Park Service improve the condition of the picnic areas, and respond to increased demand for visitor facilities and services.
