Reservations must be made in advance, and pets must be declared at check-in. Pet owners will be required to sign an acknowledgement and release form.
What a beautiful park, with so much to see and do. We had to buy firewood from the Penny Saver as the park itself didn't sell any by the time we needed it (not sure if this is the case during business hours or not) but we discovered a great grocery store (the food co-op!) and made plans to visit the historic downtown the next day. Plenty of wildlife, does and twin fawns all over the place. The fort was a fun discovery for our kids, they were fascinated with all the secret passageways (small ladders etc). Collecting shells on the beach and searching for crabs! Make sure you check out the orca exhibit as well as the marine science center where you get to touch sea life. We will be back, this was our kids favorite stop on our cross-country road trip. (Ages 11 and 8) One night was about $45 for our popup.
