Tap / Click question to view answer:
you send a brochure?
If there is something that isn't answered in the web pages,
material will not answer it either. Our web site has more
information than our brochure and flyers since they can be kept more
current than printed material (which gets printed in quantities and
edited down to fit in the limited space available). The home page
offers basic information and has links to activities, rates, map, and
local points of interest. Any hard copy information that we
would send you would only be a subset of what is on this web site.
It is only helpful to someone that would not have access to the

How many people are
the campsite fee?
If you are a family, our practice is to consider that you
can use a site
at the site rate. "Family" includes 2 adults and all biological,
adopted or legal ward children under 18 years old living with the
adults. Additional people (adults or children) are charged
the overnight visitor rate identified on our Rate Page. Grandparents
adult children are "additional" people.
Each person on the grounds results in some expense to the operation and
maintenance of the
campground. Most campgrounds cover this expense by limiting
number included in the site fee. We are family oriented and
choose to offer affordable family camping. In return, we ask
that you be fair to us.
Can we put an
additional tent up
on our campsite?
If the tent is for your immediate family members (as described above),
there is no charge to put it on the same site. We consider the site fee
a family fee as long as it includes children that live with you. An
additional family (or adult children) in another camper or tent would
pay a separate campsite fee.

Our overnight sites are in open areas. Since
Mother Nature cannot
be counted on to keep the wooded areas and access to them dry we do not
reserve wooded spots for overnight sites. If you have
reservations for a primitive site and would like to be in a wooded
area, please ask when you arrive and we will try to accommodate you.
long enough so I don't have to unhook my car(s)?
We have sites for this, but you must let us know at the time

the proper site.
Can we have visitors
and is there a charge?
Visitors are allowed and can participate in our activities
and events and
utilize our facilities. The Rate Page identifies the
charge. There is an "overnight" rate for visitors and/or
extra campers that stay the night. There is a "Daily" rate for
those that don't stay the night. If you do not want your
to pay the fee to visit you, you may pay it for them in advance of

What if I arrive and
the store is closed?
If the store is closed when you arrive, pull around to the
left past the
store and go to the white house - the office entrance is marked. If no
one answers at the office and you have reservations, you should be able
to find your site using the map. If you don't have reservations, you
can set up on an empty site located across from the house.
We will meet with you when we get back to the house to settle your
and give you a hang tag.
What is the best way to
get in touch with you at the campground?
If you would like to make reservations or have still have
questions, please call.
When the campground is closed, October through April, you will get the
answering machine and we will return all calls within 48 hours.
From the Wednesday before Memorial Day through Labor Day (and the two
weekends following Labor Day) the store opens at 9 am and is open until
at least 8 pm Sunday through Thursday and 11 pm Friday and
Saturday. Someone will be available to take your reservation
and answer your questions. When the store is closed, you can leave a
message on the answering machine and we will return the call within 24
Because of the responsibilities of the campground we
are not near a phone very often. Please note that the 1-800
number rings on the same line as the 1-814 number. There is no reason
to call both to see if we will answer one or the other. Leaving a
message the first time is preferable to trying to "get through" several
times within a short period. If we are not there to answer,
we probably won't be there any time soon, either.
You can also e-mail your reservation request and questions.

Do you have any
Seasonal Sites currently available?
All of our Seasonal Sites are occupied or are committed to
paid in full campers. We do keep a waiting list, but understand
the nature of seasonal camping and that folks on our waiting list might
choose to commit to a seasonal site available at another campground to
make sure that they have a spot for the season. We do contact people on
the waiting list if a site becomes available and there is not a paid in
full camper waiting, but the site must be paid for immediately.
Our experience has been that there are times when someone who has paid
for the next season is no longer going to camp. Openings happen
suddenly and are filled suddenly. Rather than taking a chance, if you
to become part of our Seasonal Camping Family, we suggest that you
paying in full for the season even if we are "full". If a site has not
become available by the time you are ready to bring your camper we will
set you up on an overnight site with water / electric / weekly sewer
pickup. As soon as a site becomes available, we will move you
to that site. This has worked to accommodate many happy
