Seasonal Campsite Lottery

So that everyone has equal access to our parks, seasonal campsite availability is decided by a lottery which is held every year.  The lottery registration packets are available on or about the 2nd Saturday of July and the drawing is usually held the 2nd Saturday in August.


To participate in the lottery for either park, you'll need:


1.  A completed registration packet.  Give us a call mid-July for specific dates for the year.

2.  A $400 deposit for a campsite and/or $100 for a dock, if wanted.

3.  Proof of registration for any campers, boats and boat trailers.  The registration must be in the same name as the person applying for the campsite.

4. And return the registration packet by the deadline.
