Facilities Available at this Park
Firewood is provided and included in your overnight camping fee. There is also a fire ring in the day-use area for campfires.
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.
There is a lakeside day-use picnic area with tables, public dock and play area adjacent to the park.
