  • If you are a qualified First Responder, Essential Worker, or Evacuee, you may be asked to move your campsite if your site is already reserved by a paying customer. Our camp staff will notify you and identify a new campsite.

Reservations for the 2021 Season – OPEN

Campground by the Lake is open for reservations for the remainder of the 2021 season.

Reservations for 2022 Season - CLOSED

Campground by the Lake is not currently accepting reservations for the 2022 season due to the construction of a new recreation and aquatics complex on the north side of the campground. The construction project will impact a portion of the campground (A, B, & C loops). We may open reservations on January 1, 2022, for a limited number of campsites in the D, E, and F loop once we determine those loops will be unimpacted by the construction project. Thank you for your understanding.
