Tent Sites General Rules and Policies

Your safety is one of our biggest concerns. We want you to enjoy your stay, so please review these Tent Site General Rules and Policies to stay informed.

Check in: 1:00 PM – 7:00 PM (June – September);1:00 PM – 6:00 PM (October – May)

Please note that we cannot accommodate late arrivals after 7:00 pm (June – September); 6:00 PM (October – May). If you cannot arrive to the Park by our check in times, please consider changing your travel dates.

Check out: 11:00 am


If you would like an early check-in or a late checkout, please call ahead and make a request. However, this is subject to availability. Arrivals prior to 12 PM, can not be accommodated, therefore you should plan your travels accordingly. Early access to the Park does not guarantee that your site will be ready or available at the time of your arrival. Similarly, if you are granted extended access, after check out time, it does not guarantee that you can stay at your site. Early access/extended access only guarantees access to the campground and campground amenities, which may require that you park in our overflow parking area. In addition, please be aware that requested sites are not guaranteed.

Payment & Cancellation Policy


All of our tent sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. All reservations for the tenting area must be made by calling our office.


Our rate allows for one tent, one vehicle, 2 adults and up to 3 children under the age of 12. Car camping is not allowed. You are permitted one pet per tent site. And, because our tent areas are community parks, we enforce a no-nuance pet policy. Therefore, you will be asked to leave immediately if your pet is causing a nuance to other campers. Aggressive animals are not allowed in our Park. You will find more details in our Park’s Pet Rules and Policies.

  • Our Park’s quiet hours are from 10 PM until 8 AM. We ask you kindly to always consider your neighbor during your stay. TV and radio sound travel to your neighbor. Most families prefer a more natural setting. Therefore, if you must have your TV outside, please place it as discreetly as possible, so those who are not interested in your TV may enjoy their time as well.
Vehicles and Parking
  • The Speed Limit for all vehicles throughout the campground is 5 M.P.H. We realize that this is ridiculously slow. If you do not feel that you are driving ridiculously slow, then you are driving too fast. Motorcycles, ATV’s and all vehicles should be driven to and from campsites only. Please remember that you share the road with bicyclists and pedestrians. In summary, this rule and policy is for everyone’s safety and to also keep the park a pleasant environment for all of our guests

Our policy is to guide you into your site in order help you maximize the space. Parking a towed vehicle should not obstruct the main road in front of your site. If your trailer is too large to fit into your site, please ask us about available overflow trailer parking.

Your open fire is permitted in a fire ring and is required to be extinguished by 10 pm or prior to leaving your campsite.BUY IT WHERE YOU BURN IT.
