| Located just inland from Spooner Cove, the park’s 40 primitive campsites beside Islay Creek have tables and woodstoves. Pit toilets are nearby. Trailers and motor homes are limited to 27 feet long and there are no hookups. Water for the campground is trucked in to fill the two large water tanks.
Family campsites accommodate up to 8 people. They are developed campsites with amenities that vary from park to park, and may include fire pits or fire rings, picnic tables, showers, a water supply, and a cleared area for your tent.
Each campground has a maximum limit of 10 consecutive nights that a camper may stay. Once this consecutive night limit has been reached, the campground must be vacated, and no one in the party may return to camp in the same park for 48 hours. After that, the party may return for up to 10 more days, for a total 20-day stay limit per calendar year.
A parent or guardian must accompany youths under 18 years of age. The Supervising Ranger may approve the stay of a youth that presents written consent from the parent or guardian that states the dates of the authorized stay and the park name.
Fees include entry for 1 vehicle and 1 legally towed vehicle or trailer.
A maximum of 2 licensed vehicles/autos, travel, boat, and utility trailers-may be parked at most campsites.
