The Camping Master Plan (2013) outlines a variety of offerings to serve youth, families, groups and individuals of all ages, interests and backgrounds.

Important Note

Not all locations and amenities outlined in the Camping Master Plan (2013) were constructed. Please see our Camping Page for current camping locations and amenities.

The plan emphasizes primitive camping and envisions a series of related yet diverse camping experiences built by reinvesting in and revitalizing existing camps, creating new camping destinations, and developing special event campsites near nature centers.
