The E, F and G-loops are closed for the winter season as of the end of October and open back up in the spring for Spring Break. The A, B, C and D-loops remain open year-round. Many of the sites are winterized with the water shut off in case of freezing temperatures, but all of those sites do still have power available. A limited number of sites are left open during the winter with the water still accessible at the site. These sites are C-2 thru C-9, D-6 and D-8. You can camp at any of the other sites in A, B, C or D loops by filling up your holding tank with potable water available near the dump station. Restrooms will remain open year round, but dump station tower will be winterized.
Thistle Creek And Whitcomb Creek boat ramps are currently inaccessible for launching due to low water levels in Green Peter Reservoir.
