Alerts and Important Information
Please note that during your stay the campground may look different this season. As a direct result of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) and its negative impacts to the growth and health of Ash trees within the park, staff have had to cut down a large quantity of trees leaving a more open canopy. We have done this in an effort to keep all of our campers safe while reducing potential future damage to camper property and campsites themselves.  We have also taken this opportunity to do site work, drainage work on sites, site pad maintenance and more. We understand that trees are a major component of the parks experience and are working diligently on restoration plans for new trees for future generations.

Park Rules:

  • Quiet hours are from 10PM to 7AM.
