Drinking water

Potable water is not provided at this park. Visitors must bring their own water.

Boat launch

There is a gravel/brick boat launch with a moderate grade available at this park. There is limited parking available for boat trailers. It is not recommended to leave a trailer parked or boat moored overnight.


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.

Pit or flush toilets

This park only has pit toilets – no flush toilets.
