Gathering firewood
We sell firewood, and the kids often help pick it out and haul it to the campsite, often in their camping finery!

More pictures of the campsites are in the Campsites Photo Gallery.

There are seven tent camping sites in the East Meadow Campgrounds. Picnic tables and fire rings are provided. Restroom facilities are nearby, and nonpotable drinking water is available from the Wheaton House outdoor spigot.

The East Meadow Campgrounds location is indicated on the  Campgrounds Site Map.

We have seven additional camping sites to the west of the Wheaton House and parking lots, in the West Meadow. They were created to accommodate cars and campers; a few can accommodate RVs. The sites, however, do not have hookups. Site 8 is along Silver Creek, between the back parking lot and the Williams Pavilion. Site 9 is in the West Meadow, behind the dairy barn. Sites 11 and 12 are further back, tucked at the base of the hill, Site 13 is at the far edge of the meadow, on Silver Creek, and Site 14 is in the stand of pine trees. The sites have picnic tables and fire rings.

 

Reservations

To make a reservation, you can either email us or call the Park Office at 570-967-7275 to tentatively schedule a reservation date. Leave your name, phone number, and the reason for your call. Someone will get back to you shortly.

Once your date has been cleared with office personnel, you will need to pay for the reservation for it to be held. You can pay by credit card over the phone, or you can send the camping fee, along with a completed Campsite Reservation Form, to the park.

Reservations are not confirmed until payment is received. Upon receipt of your check, you will be contacted and your reservation confirmed.

Refund Policy: Cancellations received one week in advance of the reservation date: refund provided minus a $10 cancellation fee per site for administrative costs. Cancellations received less than one week before the reservation date: no refund. Campers removed from the campgrounds due to noncompliance with the park's rules and regulations: no refund.

Camping with No Reservation - The Honor System

If you do not make a reservation, you can camp in any site that is not posted as reserved. Regarding payment, please note the following:

The Friends operate Salt Springs because the State cannot provide park services. To raise money to operate the park, the Friends depend on the HONOR system to collect your fees. Please support the park and the Friends by paying your camping fee in the following way:

Upon arriving at the park, go to the Wheaton House to get a Campsite Rental Envelope. If the Office is closed, get the Envelope and a Camping Information brochure from the literature rack outside, to the left of the Office door.

Then, go to the camping area and choose your camp site. Fill out the Campsite Rental Envelope, enclose the appropriate rental fee (from the Camping Information brochure), and insert the envelope into the green metal box in the kiosk off the Main Parking Lot (next to the Wheaton House).

You MUST pay for your site BEFORE you set up your campsite. You cannot defer payment until you leave.
