Hook Ups

Each campsite comes with full hook-ups for one RV or trailer. We’ve prepaid for up to four campsites that cover the entrance fees for 4 people each. If you are bringing a RV or trailer, it’s important that you sign up early. Hook-ups will be assigned on a first signed up first served basis. Priority will be given to boat drivers and the trip leader. Solo drivers requiring hook ups may be required to pay the the site ($75).

If we get sign-ups early enough we can try to add more campsites.
