Disclaimer: This map is updated as soon as possible when campground status changes, but it is not updated in real time. Be aware that campgrounds may fill between the time you check the status and the time you arrive at the campground.
Overnight camping or parking is only allowed in designated campgrounds or campsites.
Campsite occupancy is limited to 6 people per site.
Camping is limited to 14 days from July 1 through Labor Day (first Monday in September) and to 30 days the rest of the year; no limit at Fishing Bridge.
Drinking water is normally available in all campgrounds with occasional exceptions.
Campfires, including those in portable wood or propane fire pits, are prohibited in the Fishing Bridge RV Park. Wood and charcoal fires are permitted in all other campground locations, though special fire restrictions are occasionally put in place when the danger of wildland fires is great. If you plan to light a fire in the park, please check the information board at the campground or email our Visitor Services Office prior to your visit. Propane grills and stoves are normally not restricted.
Food storage boxes are available at all of the campsites at Indian Creek, Pebble Creek, Slough Creek, Tower Fall, Norris, and Lewis Lake campgrounds. Many campsites in other campgrounds are also equipped with bear-proof storage boxes.
Fishing Bridge RV Park is the only campground offering water, sewer, and electrical hookups-50 amp service; it is for hard-sided vehicles only (no tents or tent-trailers are allowed).
