We welcome campers with tents, pop-up trailers (18', 21', 25') and small pick-up (slide-on) campers. RVs, teardrops, travel trailers, hybrid trailers, and dual-wheeled pick-up campers cannot be accommodated. There are no electrical hook-ups or pumping stations.

Each site is unique.  Some are suitable only for tents, others are suitable for pop-ups or pick-up campers.  Please be sure the site you choose matches the equipment you bring!

Each site can accommodate 2 adults or 2 adults and accompanying minor children.  The person making the reservation must be 21 or older, and must stay at the site.

One vehicle per campsite. Limited overflow parking for a second vehicle is available off-island.

We regret that we cannot allow pets.

Hermit Island Campground is for registered campers only - visitors are not allowed within the campground.
