Campfires are permitted but firewood is not provided. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil. You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented and some parks may use communal fire rings. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.
Cold water taps are located throughout the park. The water taps do not have hose hookups for campers/trailers. Taps are shut off during the off-season.
