Important Reservation Notes

See below for Fully Booked Dates

Dogs - Well behaved dogs are welcome in camp as long as they are under control at all times. Please do not allow your dogs inside the main cabin or bunkhouse. Please leash your dog. If you plan to stay the night at Barr Camp with your dog, you need to rent a lean-to shelter, tent site, or upper cabin.  Please clean up after your dog.

Gear storage - For our on-site guests with a paid reservation we can store your gear for you while you hike. Your gear must be retrieved the same day. For longer storage or off-site visitors you need to make your own storage plans. FOOD STORAGE - We do not have bear proof or refrigerated storage for food. We do have a place for our guests to store their food overnight which is away from you. We recommend you bring rope to hang your food or bear proof canister.

Late arrivals / Early departures - For the comfort of everyone, if you are arriving after 9:00pm we ask that you reserve a lean-to or tent site and know where it is before you arrive. Please arrive quietly.
For those that want to leave before breakfast we ask that you also consider a lean-to or tent site. Please depart quietly.

Very young/restless children - Again, for the comfort of other guests, please reserve a lean-to or tent site.

Reservation lead time - Please make your reservation at least two days prior to your stay at a minimum. We require time to coordinate with you. The more time before your stay the better chance of getting your requested date/bunk. Reservations closer than two days may not get the meals/bunks requested.

You did not receive request reply/bill/email from us - Three common problems:
1 - You made a typo in your email on the original request form
2 - Your company, educational, or government server has us blocked
3 - Your junk email/spam filter dumps our emails to your junk email folder
Send us an email using a corrected/different address and we will resend your information

MAIN CABIN BUNK HOUSE
has fifteen mattresses with six of them in two lofts.  Bunks rent individually, hostel style.  Attached to the main cabin common area where meals are served and guests and hikers spend time relaxing. Some heat during day but not at night. You may be surprised at how warm you stay in your sleeping bag, but if cool nights are not for you then summer is your best option.

Main Bunk House

UPPER CABIN
This separate cabin rents as a unit and sleeps 12 people; ten bunk beds and a futon that can serve as a double. There is a wood stove for heat but we ask for your help in conserving the wood which we have available. If you are cooking your own meals you will need your own cookstove, untensils, pots, and carry out your own waste.

Upper Cabin

LEAN-TO SHELTER (aka; A-Frames, Adirondack shelters)
We have three lean-to shelters. Raised off the ground and enclosed on three sides; the lean-to shelters are open air yet wind-proof and dry.  Equipped with mattresses, they sleep three adults comfortably. Please do not put up your tent in our lean-to's.

Please do not confuse our shelters with the A-Frame shelter located at timberline. That structure is also available for camping but is NOT part of Barr Camp.
