Pets on Leash

Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.
Facilities Available at this Park
While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park or you may bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
Two cold water taps are located in the campground. Taps are shut off during the off-season
Pit or Flush Toilets
1 pit and 2 flush toilets are located in the camground.

A variety of tree species is present including Ponderosa pine, cottonwood, Lodgepole pine, Douglas fir and spruce which give the sites some shade. The closest store is in Greenwood, 4km east of the park.
