There are no established group sites available at any of the wilderness campgrounds. In order to accommodate groups and individual campers where limited space is available, the following rules will apply with regard to backcountry use permits for organized groups (scouts, church groups, and etc.).

  • Maximum group size per permit is 4 persons. For organized groups larger than this, the group will be required to split into smaller groups of up to four persons per permit.

Please pay relevant entrance fees for all group members and obtain a wilderness use permit prior to entering the Wilderness.
