Length of stay is limited to 14 days within any 30-day period. If you wish to stay longer please contact the park manager and we will do our best to accommodate you if we are able.
How many vehicles can I have at my site?
Unless otherwise noted on your confirmation, one camping unit and a maximum of eight people are allowed per campsite. A camping unit is one tent, one trailer or one camper (not a combination or multiples). An automobile with attached in-tow equipment is considered one vehicle. An extra passenger vehicle (if allowed) will be charged half the camping fee per night (rounded to the next dollar). Sites that are $10 per night will charge an extra vehicle the full $10 fee.
