      1. Thx so much.
        How many tents are allowed?
        Do I have to book it?
        For sure… we are not up in the walk in sites,right?
        Thx for your help!

        1. Hi Laureen,

          I would call the park to find out more details, although in the past I’ve camped there in fairly large groups. The sites are below the bluffs.
