Parking

We recommend dropping off any gear you have at camp then parking. The main parking area is 1.2 miles with some parking along the way.

There is limited parking at the camp site and we would like to reserve that for folks who are not able to make the 1.2 mile walk.

There is a beautiful hiking trail and lake near by camp. We recommend driving because it is 5.8 miles away. The trail is called Cora lake trail.
