While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park for $8 per bundle or you may bring your own wood. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
The park has one campground situated near the Arrow Lake reservoir. The campground contains 105 vehicle accessible sites, 7 of these are doubles. There are no pull through sites or tent pads but tents can be placed on the campsite gravel pad. Many of the sites are considered large and can accommodate extra vehicles. The campground offers a selection of both open/sunny sites or wooded/shaded sites in a mixed smaller forest of white pine, cedar and hemlock.
In addition, the park has two group use camping areas located off of the Day Use parking lot adjacent to the Columbia River. They can be reservable through the Discover Camping reservation service. Group Site 1 is designated for RVs. It can accommodate up to 8 RVs. Group Use Site 2 is designated for tenting only. It can accommodate up to 10 tents. Both sites require a minimum of 15 occupants, and a maximum of 50 occupants. In addition, both sites have potable water, garbage receptacles, pit toilets, picnic tables, and one fire ring each.
