Micro Cabin Campsite

This campsite includes our new Micro Cabin, one large 14'x14' tent pad and one small 5'x8' tent pad. The Micro Cabin can sleep 2 people and may be arranged as a queen bed or two twin beds - it includes mattresses as well, just bring your own sleeping bags or rent some from us! We designed the cabin with four solid walls and a roof so that it is 100% waterproof but still has great ventilation, privacy and comfort for those looking to enjoy the outdoors without a tent. The campsite can fit a total of 6 people - 2 people in the cabin and 4 in the campsite. This site also includes drive-up parking for 2 vehicles, unlimited firewood (check our website for fire ban information) and access to all campground amenities. No RVs or travel trailers allowed. Vans, roof top tents and truck shell sleep setups are permitted in your 2 drive-up parking spaces.
