Campground Info

While Eagle's Roost Campground was built over 40 years ago, it is kept up-to-date by caretakers who live on the premises year-round.

All overnight RV sites are shaded and have 30A service and water. Some tent sites have electricity. Full hook ups are available only on leased seasonal sites and seasonal sites may not be sublet. There are three dumping stations and two full service bath houses on the property as well as rest rooms in the office. The campground does not offer Internet service, but those with mifi devices or smartphones will find good coverage by most carriers.

With 95% seasonal campsites and 5% overnight or short term sites for RVers and tenters, reservations are required for short term stays. Call for rates and reservations. The cancellation policy requires a 24 hour notice for a refund. Major credit cards are accepted.

All dogs must be kept on leashes. Occasionally, a squirrel or two may visit your campsite but the property is relatively "critter free" with many opportunities for seeing the wonders of nature--or catching them!
