IF a freeze warning is predicted, we will be forced to blow out our water lines throughout the park which means that there will not be any water on at your site, our bathrooms will be closed, and no overnight stays or campfires will be permitted.

IF Fish Lake is Open through November 1st
The water will get turned off and washrooms will be closed Monday, November 2nd at 7am. Campfires, overnight stays, boating and fishing are all prohibited starting November 2, 2020

Opening Season 2021
Every spring seasonal campers wish to check on their trailers in March, prior to the official opening in April.  However, we do not allow it due to the potential risk of damage to our roads and property caused by driving in the campground when there is snow, ice, or wet grounds. 

We hope to be open for seasonals to check on their trailers and begin spring cleanup on the weekend of April 3rd and 4th. The water will be off, however, electric service will be available. The hours will be 8a-4p. Campfires and overnight camping are prohibited until water is on. 

If weather conditions allow, we'll turn the water on April 16th.
An official announcement will be made on CampersApp and Facebook.

Thank You.
