Alerts and Important Information
DID YOU KNOW you save 15-20% by reserving a weeknight* campsite? (*Sunday-Thursday, excluding holidays)

Each year the campground makes every effort to provide safe swimming opportunities by testing the water and by keeping the swimming areas staffed with lifeguards. Please be aware that if the safety of our swimmers is compromised, due to lack of lifeguard coverage or water quality issues, swimming will be prohibited and therefore cannot be a guaranteed activity. We apologize for this inconvenience as it may occur with little advance notice.

  • Only 2 pets per site are permitted. Current rabies certificate required. Pets must be on a leash no longer than 6ft at all times. Pets are prohibited on the beach or in the picnic area.
  • Quiet hours are in effect from 10 p.m. through 7 a.m.
  • Swimming is allowed in guarded areas when lifeguards are on duty.
  • Recycling is mandatory.
  • Looking to reserve for just 1-night? If you make your reservation within 3 days of your arrival you can book a 1-night stay online or through the Call Center. This applies only to campsites.
  • Peak season: A person may be the primary site occupant for 14 total days of camping within a 16 day period. S/he must leave the park for 48 hours once they have stayed the maximum number of days allowed before beginning a new reservation.
