Check Availability

To check on the availability of a shelter, lodge or youth group camping site click on the Facility Calendar link on the left or top of this page. You do not need to have an account to view the calendar. Use the Calendar Filters at the upper right hand corner of the Facility Calendar page, pick the facility, then pick the room (leave the other categories on all.) Please keep in mind we only allow one group/reservation per site, per day...for example, if you see a group has already reserved a site for 4pm-8pm, you cannot reserve it for 10am-2pm on the same day. (Arrowhead Lodge customers: If you are requesting a date less than 30 days ahead, all reservations are subject to superintendent approval.)
