Question: Do I have to camp in a group or can I camp alone?

Ans: Both are fun and rewarding ways to spend time outdoors.  If you’d like to camp with your friends or by yourself, book a campsite based on your preferred dates. If you’d like to meet other people while camping attend the many events, we regularly post on our events page.

Ans: If you ask us, that’s how nature intended it for us ;) However, all of the campsites we have listed on our website have clean and hygienic restrooms.
