What's the difference between a park and a recreation area?
The difference between a park and a recreation area deals with the activities that can be enjoyed in that area. A park allows visitors the opportunity for camping, hiking, picnicking, and fishing using modern developments such as established campsites with electricity and water, rest rooms, and shelter houses. Hunting is not permitted in our parks and these areas may be closed to visitors at times. Recreation areas may not permit overnight camping, may not have rest rooms, and may not have access to water. Hunting and fishing are permitted during the appropriate seasons and recreation areas are open year-round.

How much are the camping fees and can I reserve a campsite?
Camping fees are set at $10.00 per night for sites without electricity and $15.00 per night for sites with electricity. Our campground host will register campers in any of our campgrounds and will provide information regarding our areas.

Reservations can be made at MyCountyParks.com.

Are showers or a dump station available?
