Campground Construction Impacts 2022 

Please be advised the City is excited to be breaking ground on a new recreation and aquatics center located on the north side of the campground beginning in spring 2022. Campground loops A, B, and C will not be available for advanced reservations due to construction. Campground loops D, E, and F on the southwest end of the campground, furthest from the construction site, will be open for reservation. Before making your reservation, please be aware that ALL campsites will be impacted by daytime construction noise, no matter what site is selected. Before making your reservation for 2022, all campers are hereby notified of construction noise and other construction-related impacts you may experience during your stay.  

This notice will be provided to all campers at the time of reservation and again prior to their arrival. Due to advance notification of the impacts to the camping experience, no refunds will be issued due to noise.
