Total Use Policy

We do have a policy that permits the renting of all facilities in the Main Camp. (Not including the wilderness area where tent camping is permitted.)

Mon - Thur .......... $650 per day
Fri - Sun .............. $850 per day

Daily use fee reduced by $100 if pool not available. Total use requires a $200 (two hundred dollars) security deposit. This fee is held as a clean up / damage guarantee that is forfeited in the event the facilities are not left cleaned, in good repair, or the group fails to check out with the Camp Ranger.

Campers in the wilderness area will be informed that the Main Camp area has been rented to another group. Campers in the wilderness area are then required to obtain permission prior to entry into the Main Camp area locates south of the parking lot(s). Water for wilderness campers is available on the rear of the Harrison Building located right next to the parking lot.

All campers staying over night must check out by 11am unless other arrangements have been made with Camp Ranger prior to use of facility. Check In time for over night campers may start at 3pm unless prior arrangements have been made to allow an earlier check in.
