Three restrooms with showers, playground equipment and horseshoe pits are scattered throughout the campground. Campers must have a camping permit and a valid parks pass.
Only two sleeping units per site (one hard side unit and one tent, or two tents)
Only six people per camping site
All vehicles and trailers must stay on the site’s asphalt.
Overflow parking is at the top of the campground.

Please camp only in designated sites and display the campground permit in the marker at each campsite. A holding tank dump station is located in the campground. It is illegal to dump any wastewater, including dishwater, anywhere except the dump station. Please also note NO inflatable bouncing/jumping devices for kids are allowed and NO public address systems may be used.
During Spring/Summer Season
If you do not have a reservation during the summer peak season, you may camp at Boyd Lake if space is available. When space is available for camping you need to be sure the site you choose to camp in does not have a reservation card in the numbered post marker at each site. Additionally, you may only purchase two nights at a time without a reservation
We recommend you reserve camp sites for any weekend day/nights (including Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Holidays) and stays longer than 2 nights. If you do not reserve a campsite and you stay longer than 2 nights, you risk having to move to another site if a reservation comes in behind you. As with all our camping permits (reserved or not) you have the site until 12:00 (noon) the next day.
