Tents, Inflatables, Generators and Other


Single, free standing tents, up to 16’x16’, are permitted in the open space between the parking lot and the tree line to the left of the trail entrance. Tents must be anchored per manufacturer’s recommendations, with tie downs marked in a noticeable manner and may not be combined with other tents. Use of tents larger than 16’x16’, inflatables, generators, petting zoos or any amusement attraction, towable smoker/grill or fryers, or other large equipment will require a Special Park Use Permit and additional fees, and approval will be based on date, size, scope of the event and any conflicts the event may have on public usage of the park/trail.
