KSF CampingOvernight visitors enjoy the forest's 46-site, fully equipped camping area. The campground is served by two bathhouses and coin-operated laundry facilities.

All sites have fireplaces and picnic tables and 25 sites feature electric and water hookups. All electric pedestals are 20-amp service. Firewood and ice are available. A dump station is available for campground guests.

The campground is open from mid-April through the first Saturday in December or deer rifle season, whichever is the later date. Only one tent or trailer is allowed per site and check-out time is 12 noon. An attendant is on duty from 2:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. daily. Campers may select a site that is not taken or reserved and the attendant will stop by and register you.

Roads leading to the forest are a challenge to campers greater than 26 feet in length. It is recommended to contact the forest office prior to arrival if your unit exceeds a length of twenty-six feet or more to discuss road access.

Reservations are accepted from Memorial Day through Labor Day Weekends.
Sites are on first come, first served for the remaining camping season.
