Q: When are you open?

A: We are open for reservations year-round. Our hours do change with the seasons, but we are open for business! Certain tent loops may occasionally be closed due to winter conditions.

A: If you call the office during business hours and your call gets directed to voicemail, please leave us a message! We are often on the phone with another customer and will return your call as soon as we are able. In the summer, we are accepting or returning phone calls for a majority of our day. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause you.


Q: What is the configuration of your RV sites?

Q: Do you have pull- through RV sites?

A: Sorry, no.


Q: Can we bring our pets?

A: Pets are allowed at all RV sites, tents sites, and most cabins (*Klaer Lodge has a no pet policy due to recent upgrades.) Dogs must be leashed and cleaned up after at ALL times. Excessive barking is not tolerated. We politely ask that anyone with an RV or trailer, bringing an indoor cat, please have a collar and ID on the animal on the chance that it happens to get out. We reserve the right to add damage fees to your account as necessary. Anyone with additional pet related questions is encouraged to call the park office.

A: Quiet hours extend from 9pm to 9am. If you have a noise complaint, please call the park superintendent. The number is posted on the office door, on the bottom of the reservation receipt you receive upon check in, and on the reservation tag clipped to the post of your RV or tent site.


Q: Can we bring our own firewood?

A: No. We sell firewood at a rate of 10 pieces for $6.00.  Our wood is sourced from within the park, generally from trees deemed to be a fall hazard to park buildings or reservation sites.
