Campfires are permitted in this park. Visitors must supply their own wood. 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 adds organic matter to the soil. You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small or using a portable stove. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented.
Picnic areas
There is an area for picnicking but limited facilities.
Pit or flush toilets
This park has pit toilets; no flush toilets.
