There are 3 Family/Group Tent camp sites at the main camp. Each tent site may have up to two tents or 8 people. Every tent site has a large cook fire pit with a heavy grill and is either near a latrine or the compost bathroom. A Water spigot is also available within 250 feet of each site. All the campsites border the Hammond Hill State Forest and have a creek running nearby, which sometimes dries up in the late summer. Tent sites are 30 dollars per night for up to 2 people. Add 5 dollars/night for additional children and 10 dollars/night for additional adults. A weekly rate of 180 dollars for up to 2 people is also available. A non-refundable deposit equivalent to one night is required to reserve a site for a weekend. There is a two day minimum stay on weekends. Check in time is between 5 & 7pm; Check out time is noon.
Rabbit Hole – This site is located closest to the camp facilities (shower-house, compost toilets and pavilions). You are close enough to the main camp keep an eye on campground happenings but also have enough privacy to do your own thing.
Fox Den – Just a bit further into the forest you will find the Fox Den. It will give you the privacy to hear a bit more of the wilderness with less noise and light from the main camp activities. It is a short walk to a privy or the compost toilets and shower house.
Bear Cave – For folks who like the primitive feeling of being in the forest, and yet know that you are only a short ways to the main camp, you will enjoy this more secluded site which closely borders the state forest and gives you the opportunity to hear the forest animals (including coyotes) distinctly in the evening. It is a short walk to the latrine or compost toilets and shower house.
- Daily $30 (for 2 people)
- Weekly $180 (for 2 people)
