Tent & RV sites


In our terminology, tent sites and RV sites are the same thing.

Like all campsites, each of these has a fire ring or fireplace with grill for cooking and a picnic table.

Most parks sell wood and ice and many have nature programs, performances and other events.

Besides the fireplace or fire ring and picnic bench these sites are usually roomy and level with places to park your rig or set up a couple of tents. Some sites are wooded and some open.

Using the interactive campground maps: You can get more information on the offerings of a particular park by visiting the individual park pages and viewing the interactive campground maps. For example, by selecting a park from the Fast Park Finder drop down menu located at the top of the screen, you will go to that park's page. Once there, you will find a description of the park, downloadable pdfs of any trails or nature guides pertinent to the park as well as a link to view our interactive campground maps. You will see the overview of the park layout. Then, click on a specific site. You will see a photo of the site plus information about the site from our reservations database.
