General Camping Information for National Forests
Not all campsites can accommodate trailers or RVs of all lengths. Check carefully on the reservation site when you make your reservation to be sure your vehicle will fit your campsite.
Designated Accessible sites are usually reserved for people with disabilities who have a vehicle displaying an accessible parking placard or license plate.
Campgrounds without Potable Water
The lack of drinking water at a campground can be an inconvenience, especially for those without an RV or travel trailer. The obvious solution is to bring along a 5 or 7 gallon water canister to use for drinking water, dish washing, and even teeth brushing.
Another solution to consider is to use a quality water filter to filter water from a nearby stream or lake, a process backpackers use all the time. While hand pump filters work well, they can become tiresome. A gravity flow filter is really the best solution for campground use. Simply fill the reservoir with water, hang it from a tree limb, and enjoy clean water filling your water jug at a rate of almost ½ gallon a minute.
