Important Notice:

NID is no longer taking reservations for the 2021 camping season at Scotts Flat and Rollins Peninsula campgrounds. Unfortunately, at this time the District is experiencing a severe staffing shortage that is associated with a general labor shortage. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Drought and Fire Safety: We are in a drought! The forests are dry and the reservoirs are at lower levels. To protect our forests and community, we have fire controls in place and ask for your adherence to them.

*Fire restrictions have been imposed due to weather conditions. Wood, charcoal and other open flame fires are not be permitted.  Camp stove use is permitted at this time.*
