Campground Layout

North Campground features four loops—A, B, C, and D—with over 100 total sites available, though not all loops may be open year-round. Loop A is reserved for RV campers, while the other loops are available for both tents and RVs. There is a mix of first-come, first-serve sites and reservable sites.

  • Utility Sinks: These are provided near the restrooms for dish washing.


  • Reservable Sites: Some sites can be reserved in advance through the National Recreation Reservation Service.
  • First-Come, First-Serve: Other sites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and it is advisable to arrive early, particularly during the peak season (spring through fall).
