Group Campsite Reservations

The group campsites at Pine Springs and Dog Canyon Campground can be reserved for groups up to 60 days in advance of the visit. There are two group campsites available at Pine Springs and one group campsite available at Dog Canyon.

These sites are the only ones designed to accommodate larger numbers of people. Their use minimizes erosion, impacts on the resources adjacent to the campsite and conflict with family and individual campers.

Group campsites in Pine Springs and Dog Canyon are limited to a minimum of 10 people per site and a maximum of 20 persons per site. The group sites generally will accommodate no more than five tents.

Group site fees are $3.00 per person per night, with a minimum cost of $30.00 per night. Individuals with Senior/Golden Age or Access/Golden Access passes pay half the regular fee, or $1.50 per night. Please note: the group site fee has a per person fee rate, only the Senior Pass - Access Pass owner receives a discount; others using the site pay the full fee.

There is an additional entrance fee of $10.00 per person. This fee is separate from the daily camping fee and is valid for up to seven days.
