All of our 2020 Calendars are open and ready for your reservations.


Hello Campers!!! We just wanted to give a quick little update regarding our Campground. With the USFS closing all their camping areas and day use areas we are getting swamped with calls! They great thing about these calls is we can help stream line them by answering some questions on here. We are able to be open because we are a Privately owned Campground. However we do enforce a no campfire policy when necessary. You can fish in our campground and walk around our 54 acres. Unfortunately we don't allow day use, especially right now during COVID. We currently have the SQF Complex Fire happening up past Ponderosa. So if you have asthma or breathing issues please keep an eye on the AQI. We will do our best to update the smoke in our area on social media.

Just a quick reminder:  if you show up to a 30 amp site with a 50 amp rig we will not be able to accommodate you. This causes huge power issues on our grid. Please let staff know the amps of your rig when making the reservations so we can 

accommodate you accordingly. 

Thank You all, we appreciate your loyalty and business.  


please do not change the amount of people from 2 when booking online


First we want to thank you all for your patience during this time that we are all going through. Unfortunately COVID didn't come with an instruction manual for businesses and we are learning as we go, and just appreciate all our customers. With that being said we are experiencing a higher than normal call volume, email volume and text volume. We are all working hard to get to everyone within 48 hours, however some days this is harder than other days. 


*Our Showers are open daily from 7am - 7pm (we do not know when this will change) 

*Our toilet buildings are open daily 24/7 (limit 2 persons per restroom at a time, and No children unsupervised) Please do not flush anything but toilet paper. 

*Please practice social distancing at all times. This does not mean you have to practice social distancing with your group, but when you wonder outside of your site or outside of the park. 

*Our Front office and General Store is now open to the public. However we are limiting the amount of people in the store, please maintain 6 feet apart from other guests not in your party, and please wear a face mask if possible when coming into the office. 

*Keep in mind our community is small with many elderly people, wash your hands frequently. 

*If you are sick, please stay home. 

*As you all know things are changing regularly and we are working hard to keep all our customers updated. We know that you all are itching to get out. 

*We are starting to process refunds, refunds are taking 60-90 days to process. We know this is not our normal process, however due to laying off staff, and all the unknown this was the only way we were able to keep track of COVID cancellations. Again, thank you for your patience we appreciate it during these confusing and unknowing times. 

Our Office Hours are:

Monday - Wednesday 8am - 8pm

Thursday, Friday and Saturday 8am - 8pm

Sunday- 8am - 8pm. 

Please make sure you get all your General Store needs during these times.
