Reserve Campground


Reservations are available 180-days out for the campground at 801 Youth Center Drive. If you are camping on the main grounds inside the perimeter fencing near our buildings, we do not currently take reservations for those spaces. They are in the mapping phase, and are currently first-come first-served. You may contact Public Safety at 919-612-6767 for payment upon arrival.


DO NOT pull into a campsite prior to having a reservation secured.


PLEASE NOTE: Cash is no longer accepted for your camping stay. Payment must be made by credit card for the safety of our team.
