Site Access

Site is on the left as you head towards the COPE course and can be easily accessed by 4WD SUVs and light trucks. There is room enough for one or two vehicles to be left at the site in the off-season. The entrance to the site is on a slight grade and turning room in the area is at a premium, so a trailer can be towed to the site but putting the trailer in the site will only work if your tow-vehicle is stout enough to pull it up and out when you want to leave. Site is a 5-minute walk from the Dining Hall.
