First-Come First-Served

First-come first-served is available at all parks for non-reserved sites. First-come first-served is used for all camping sites within 3 days of your arrival. Physical presence is required to register a campsite. By physical presence, we mean the person who is to occupy the site must be present with their camping unit, ready to occupy the site.

Many times a camper will be checking in and wish to pay for another site for another family member or friend who is expected to arrive shortly. This is not acceptable. Registration will not happen until the person actually arrives.

Also, we do not allow “holding.” It is not permitted to come the day before and place a lawn chair in a site to hold it with the intention of returning the next day with a camping rig to occupy it, this applies even if you have paid for the site.
