For safety reasons, only communal fire pits are available, subject to appropriate weather conditions. There are four communal pits, one in the centre of each camping loop. A limited daily supply of firewood is supplied at no extra cost. NOTE: Portable propane fire pits are prohibited. 


The sewage disposal fee is $6 (one and two dollar coins, and quarters accepted).


Pending weather, normal water service is available by the May long weekend. To support water conservation and as a backup measure, campers and day users are encouraged to bring a supply of drinking water.
