Can I reserve a shelter or tent on a weekday?
Weekday shelter and tent reservations can be made from May through October when summer groups/camps are not using the facilities or after 4 pm at Spencer Park and after 6 pm at Bloomer Park when day camps end. Weekday shelter reservations must be approved by the Park Ranger to ensure adequate staffing. There is no discounted fee for partial-day rentals.Shelter Reservations
