The permit holder is responsible for ensuring that the campsite and associated facilities are maintained in a clean and sanitary condition at all times. Litter can quickly overrun a campsite and will lead to the degradation of the site. Bagged garbage should be regularly removed to the park’s designated waste disposal areas.
In the event of a cancellation, the party is charged a cancellation fee or penalty based on how long the site has been reserved.
Reservations are available online or by phone.
