There are no established group sites available at any of the wilderness campgrounds. In order to accommodate groups and individual campers where limited space is available, the following rules will apply with regard to backcountry use permits for organized groups such as scouts, church groups, and etc. Please pay your entrance fee and obtain a backcountry permit prior to entering the backcountry.

  • Maximum group size is limited 10 persons (three sites) at any wilderness campground. For organized groups larger than this, will be required to develop a different itinerary using another wilderness campground.

  • Only one organized group per campground - remaining free sites will be left available for individual campers.
