This is pretty much dry camping as there is no water hook-ups and although there are a few sites that offer electrical, they are hard to come by. Summers (as we can attest) can be downright hot so if you can't secure an electrical site, you may want to look elsewhere.
Remember, possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages is prohibited.
The park also has four (4) camper cabins located in the family campground (one is ADA). These camping cabins sleep six (6) in two rooms with a double bed and two sets of bunk beds.
