Our staff works hard to get campers checked in and to their camps as quickly as possible.
Here are four tips to speed up your check-in time:
1. Pre-register your data
Getting ready to hit the road? Before you leave, log into your account and add all your details before arriving at the park.
Be sure to include:
- the name of the permit holder
- names of all party members
- your license plate number
2. Have the permit holder arrive first.
If other members of the group arrive before the permit holder, they will have to wait. These additional vehicles can cause congestion at park access points.
Let’s go to the parks to avoid traffic jams!
Remember to make sure the permit holder’s name is correct. If someone helped you make a reservation, make sure your name appears, not theirs.
3. Double-check your campsite number
Five months in advance is a long time to remember a number, especially if you have several camping trips in a year.
Please double check the number for that site to avoid confusion when you arrive.
4. Have your reservation email handy
Having your email on hand helps reduce check-in times and gets you to your site faster than a mosquito can find an open store.
If you know you will be checking in during a busy time (Friday or any long weekend), consider arriving at a slower time.
Our standard check-in time is 2:00 pm To avoid the line, arrive a little later in the day, or consider booking a day earlier or later the next time you book.
*BONUS* Check your park’s social media accounts or alerts page for updates
Some parks may have modified registration processes. Others may communicate important updates, such as fire bans.
Stay informed on park news by checking social media accounts and alert pages before you hit the road.
We are very excited to see you!
We will do our best to make the process as simple as possible, but remember: will be busy.
We have many campers eager to access our parks, so put patience and kindness on your packing list.
There can be considerable wait times (especially on busy days) as everyone wants to get out, recharge and connect with nature.
Be patient and, with a little prep work at home, your arrival time will be faster than you think!
