***NO RVs ALLOWED IN THE GROUP SITES PER CAMPGROUND RULES***

*** Please be prepared to give your driver $15 - $25 for gas depending how many people are in the car. ***

*** Please bring campfire wood
One bundle of firewood for the campfire per participant (no gathering of firewood is allowed in National Parks). It is recommended that you buy the wood within 50 miles of the park. There will also be a truck selling firewood in the campground between 5:00 - 7:00p.m. I will bring a couple of bundles to get us started, fire starters and kindling.

*** Responsible drinking is allowed. ***

*** PLEASE NOTHING LARGER THAN A FOUR PERSON TENT DUE TO THE SIZE OF THE CAMPSITE. ***

*** Important to know
Please store food properly to protect wildlife. There are bears in the campground so we should really try to get all the food in the bear boxes. Last year we left out the alcohol so we could get all the food in.

*** Parking
There are only 5 parking spots at the campground. Carpooling is strongly encouraged. There is overflow parking at the ranger station. We will hold a lottery to see who gets the parking spaces at the campground. Carpools will be given preference for the limited spaces.

*** You must have a National Park pass displayed in your car at all times.

*** If you have a +1, please be sure to sign them up and pay for them. ***

*** PLEASE REMEMBER YOUR CAMP CHAIR ***

Hope you can join us!
