Welcome to the Pioneer Playhouse Outdoor Theatre & Campground!

WATER AND ELECTRIC: All sites have water and electric hookups. All sites can handle 30amps, six have 50 amps. We have bathhouses and one dump station, on property.

RESERVATIONS: We never sell out, so we DO NOT take reservations, we will have plenty of sites available. We are a “first come, first serve” campground. When you arrive, stop by the office and sign in, then go find the site you like and make yourself at “home.”

TENT CAMPING: Pitch your tent wherever you like, provided it is in a grassy area. If you use the water and electric hookups, or use an RV site, then the RV rates apply. (You must pitch your tent in a grassy area and only use the bathhouse, to receive the tent camping rate.)

You may use our wireless service by bringing your computer close to our office. There are tables and chairs available near the office. Sorry, we do not provide satellite hookups.

FIREPITS/ TABLES: Picnic tables are provided. Firepits are located in the lower campground, only. Not every site has a firepit. (There is usually plenty of wood to burn, from fallen tree limbs, etc.)
