Activities

Camping

Camping

Camping is open throughout the area. Park your vehicle or set up camp in previously disturbed sites.

Dogs

Dogs

Pet are allowed and must be under your control at all times. Dogs off leash are frequently lost as a result of being frightened by the loud motor vehicles and/or illegal fireworks. I recommend putting a glow stick or LED headlight on your dog at night so that they can be easily spotted.

Map Detail

Most maps in the Trail Finder are from a high level to provide an overview of each area.
Maps labeled as "High Res" are intended to show the high level of detail for the area but they're often unusable because of the overwhelming amount of information.
The GPS map progressively increases detail as you zoom in to prevent information overload.
