Camping Info    

Both the Chokecherry Campground and Great Horned Owl Campgrounds are CLOSED for the season.

Due to the construction of our new campground that will open next season and the cold and wet weather we have closed our campgrounds for the 2022 season. The construction of the new campground has required us to shut the water off to the existing campgrounds and to close the dump station and culinary water at the dump station.

You can book a maximum of 13 days beyond the last date of the reservation window.
