Camping/lodging Camping/lodging Open camping permitted throughout the park for up to 30 days per calendar year. Vault toilets, shade ramadas, tables, and fire rings at the following named camping areas: Quarry Road, the Cove, Main Street, Holmes Camp, and Hidden Valley. Shower buildings located at Holmes Camp and on Ranger Station Road. There are no specific campsites paved or designated as handicapped. However, many sites are located in flat, well-worn areas that might be suitable for handicapped visitors.

Drinking Water Drinking Water NO DRINKING WATER IS AVAILABLE IN THE PARK. Water can be purchased at several stores that service the off-roaders who frequent the park. Be sure to have plenty of water, either brought from home or purchased, because temperatures can easily exceed 100 from March through October. Even in cooler weather, dehydration is a severe problem.
