If you would like to change your camping assignment, it is up to you to work out a swap with another camper.
NOTICE: These tent sites are small and all sites are walk-in and have a shared or private fire ring. Bring smaller tents if you have the option, it's rocky, mountainous terrain and therefore difficult to find spaces for the larger tents. Campfires are allowed only in designated fire pits.
Privies and shared bear boxes (see bear warning below) are located a minimal distance away. The visitor center offers gathering space and a public fireplace, as well as showers.
Black bears have been known to peruse this camp. It is important that you follow these simple guidelines:
If you are tenting, store all your food in the provided bear boxes.
Don't eat or snack in your tent.
If you are staying in a cabin or lodge, keep all your food indoors.
Do not leave any food or drinks outside, especially overnight.
Keep a clean camp and only eat in designated areas such as the Rec Hall and Boathouse.
Bring a flashlight. This is a rustic campground and there are few lights, if any. It gets very dark here at night. You should equip everyone in your family with a flashlight.
Pack light. These camp sites are walk-in so if you're tenting, you don't want a lot of schlepping.
Small tents preferred. The tent areas are much smaller than we've had in the past so bring small tents if you have the option. A couple smaller tents might fit better than one large tent.
Bring a bike for the kids. There is one main gravel road through camp and a couple smaller dirt paths between tent areas.

Dining Hall (Rec Hall)
In the northeast region of the map, this building is labeled as "Rec Hall." This is where we will host all meals. There are indoor tables and chairs as well as outdoor picnic tables. We will eat outside as much as possible, weather permitting.
Centrally located on the south shore of Catfish pond is the Boat House. Here you can pick up a canoe or kayak, hang out on the deck overlooking the pond, or hang out inside if the weather is bad.
If you're tenting, you can use the showers located on the east end at Rec Hall, or on the west end at the Visitor's Center. There are also showers located in the lodges and some cabins.
Campfires are only allowed in designated fire pits. There are four community fire areas at these locations (consult the site map): West Campsites, Indian Point, Chimney Park, and Place Beyond.
