Vehicle Accessible Camping
This park offers 16 vehicle-accessible campsites, including one double site, all of which are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The park is gated just off the highway and the campground is located 500m beyond the gate.
The campground, though small, has a variety of terrain. Sites 1-7 are in the open with a few shrubs and small trees in between while sites 7-16 are shaded by mature Douglas fir, larch and spruce trees, with more shrubs and space separating the sites to offer greater privacy. The gravel sites are small and have a picnic table and a fire ring.
A self-registration vault and two pit toilets are located by the information shelter upon entering the campground. Campers can deposit their fee if no staff are present. Rock Creek, 5 km east of the park, has the nearest services.
