CONSTRUCTION UPDATE {October 28, 2014}:

Construction of park improvements to the Ranger Julie Schweikert Nature Center and Park Store are almost 100% complete. Please enjoy the new improvements including a “New Fishing Cleaning Station” located in the Boat Launch Area and a renovated Trailer Storage Lot! Check with the Park Manager for Rates and Contracts. The Park Store will remain open through the first weekend in November, closing for the season on Monday, November 3, 2015.

Campers may experience construction site activity and noise in the area Monday through Saturday. B Loop Campers may use either the Bathhouse in “C” or “A” loops. Please plan your site selection reservation accordingly.

The Full Service Cabins that have been closed beginning December 1, 2014 are NOW OPEN! The Construction Project has been moved to the coming Fall/Winter Season to best meet needs of our visiting public and park scheduling.
