Camping Reservations

Campers wishing to reserve a campsite can call 1-877-444-6777 or reserve online.

Camping reservations for campsites can be made through the National Recreation Reservation Service (NRRS). The NRRS was created with the goal of simplifying trip planning for the general public by consolidating all federal recreation information and reservations under one provider.

Reservations are available via a rolling window and advance on a daily basis at 10:00 a.m. EST:

  • Reservations for individual campsites may be made up to six months in advance.
  • Reservations for group campsites may be made up to one year in advance.

Reservations can also be made by calling the Reservation Center at 1-877-444-6777. The center is open daily:

  • March 1 - October 31, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. EST
  • November 1 - February 28, 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. EST

If you have questions, please call the park at 231-326-4700, ext. 5010.
