Very grateful the lots are large. We'd 13 tents on 3 spaces and could've still had plenty more as the lots are ample. Considering the amount of ppl at this park, however, definite need for more restrooms on the weekends. It may not be fair...More

Headed up this Tuesday with my grand kids for a few days of camping during spring break. What is a good time of day to check in if you want a good selection of available spaces? Don't want to go too early or get there too late. Also do they sell firewood or have some for visitors?

Seems like we arrived at 8 or 9 am on a very busy weekend, and we easily got our top choice for campsite. They do have wood for sale at the park (reasonable pricing) and actually prefer you buy it there ca bring it in.
