We have campsites available for RVs and Tents on Memorial Day Weekend. Many of our regular sites are booked, but we have a few new areas.

Some of the specialty sites are currently booked, however the entire property is stunning and there is still room for more.

RVs and Tents: If you are coming only to camp and hike (not bringing any motorized off road vehicles) we have new sites available in the Boxley Valley.

RVs and Tents with Toys: If you are bringing a Side x Side, Jeep, Dirt Bike or ATV to recreate on the trails we have 2 open options for you.

One is to camp in our new campground in the Boxley Valley and ride Hwy. 21 up to our normal main gate. This entails 4.5 miles of pavement and 5.5 miles of dirt (the trail system is not connected yet). It IS LEGAL to ride from the campsite to the trails.

The second is to camp up top, near the main entrance at one of two additional sites.

These are both beautiful open areas that offer many camp sites. We will have room for you, but site selection will be on a first come, first pick basis.
