Notes

Site

Food storage regulations are strictly enforced. Horse feed is also covered by food storage regulations. There are individual campsites in the horse camp and two central horse stalls. The stalls are visible only from sites 3, 4 and 5. The site arranagement was redone in 2007. Site 1 now has two driveways (previously sites 1 & 2); sites 3 and 4 (previously sites 5 and 6) have double-wide driveways, and sites 5 and 6 (previously 7 and 8) have a single driveway. Some sites may not allow the use of an awning if you have two horse trailers. Campers are responsible for cleaning their stalls before departure and placing waste in a manure trailer. Fires are allowed in fire rings only. Pets must be on a leash at all times and not left unattended. Pets are not allowed on trails.

** Arrival dates earlier than the online-reservation-window may also be available at the facility.
