How Fees are Used
The proposed changes in fees will fund projects that directly benefit our park, like campground improvement projects. Planned projects include camp site refurbishment, replacing worn out picnic tables and grills, visitor center upgrades and the addition of new campfire circles.
Fees collected are to be used to fund projects that address deferred maintenance needs, provide new visitor programs and services, protect resources, and improve and rehabilitate facilities for visitors. The majority of funds used for national park management come from Congressional appropriations. By using collected recreation fees, visitors help the National Park Service cover part of the cost of their visit.
The fees also help the National Park Service improve the condition of the picnic areas, and respond to increased demand for visitor facilities and services.
The campground offers 174 campground sites with hot showers and bathroom facilities. Park rangers and campground hosts are available.
- There are no electrical or water hookups available.
- There are hot showers, bathroom facilities and a dump station available to registered campers.
- We recommend that you bring in store bought firewood. Campers cannot bring non-store bought firewood into the park or campground because of the Emerald Ash borer threat.
- There is a three tent, six person and two vehicle maximum per site.
- If you need to occupy two sites because of the length of your RV and towed vehicle, you will need to pay for two sites.
