Directions to Camp

Gates Open promptly at 3:00 PM to begin check in.

For safety and scheduling reasons, there will be no one to assist you or care for campers before 3:00 PM. Upon your arrival we ask you to remain in your vehicles until our staff greets you and gives you directions for dropping off luggage and where to park.

We also ask that cars do not block the entrance to camp as there may be service vehicles and charter bus arrivals prior to 3:00 PM.

If you have a specific need to arrive at any time other than our normal check-in, please contact our office for assistance.
