You can check in and pay for the night any time after midnight.
For example, checking in the early morning, you would buy a camp permit for that night on arrival.
You can purchase up to 14 nights. Maximum stay is 14 nights.
Fees are $5 per person per night.
It includes the parking permit for the next day and use of the showers. The fee station takes credit cards and exact cash only, including coins.
Showers are available for $2 to people not registered in the campground.
A recharging station is available by the communal sink area, thanks to an anonymous donor.
In addition to a new bench, it has 12 plug-ins and double the shelf space from last year, complete with a galvanized top for protection.

Pets have to be on a leash no longer than six feet long, and yes–their owners are required to clean up after them. Also they can’t be left unattended and tied to any trees, fences, rocks or any other object.
Lastly–be nice to other pets and humans. Yours needs to be under control at all times when not in your car.
