Are the campsites full?
Our campsites have many walk-in sites available, and our many camp hosts collect fees for each site. As a result, our knowledge of campsite occupancy at the Lodge tends to be a day behind. We will not be able to provide accurate information on current vacancy over the phone. The best way to guarantee a site is to reserve online. If there are no sites available online, that is the best indicator that all walk-in sites will fill up, and an early arrival is advised.
Are there camp hosts?
We have many camp hosts, present 24/7 in each campsite. They are happy to answer questions you may have, help find the most enjoyable campsite for your group, and ensure that all campers can enjoy their time at Lake Alpine.
How do I pay for a walk-in site?
Once you arrive, look for a site that does not have an occupant or a reservation notice on the post. If you find one, Congratulations! The site is yours. Park at the site, take note of your license plate number, grab a pen, and walk to the camp entrance. There you will find envelopes. Place the cash inside the envelope, fill out the form. Place the envelope in the paypost, and attach the stub to the post at your campsite. Camp hosts are available to assist.
Can I pay for a campsite with a check?
Cash is the only accepted payment for walk-ins. An ATM is located in the store. Payment by card is necessary for online reservations.

Note: All fire must be contained within the fire ring. Logs which extend out of the fire ring are dangerous.

Leashed dogs are weldcoime in every area of Lake Alpine with exception to the restaurant dining room. Dogs must also be attended, i.e. not left tethered alone in a campsite.
