Only one vehicle and trailer and the latter may be an unmotorised RV.
Two vehicles may be permitted per site in the absence of an RV or trailer.
No boat trailers are permitted on any site.
One camping party per site (except for designated group sites).
There will be NO exceptions to Camping Party size and vehicle numbers.

Reservations must be made at least three days prior to your arrival date at the campground. Book early as the campground can fill up quickly.
If you are booking a campsite on a statutory long weekend, you will be required to reserve a minimum of three nights.
