Important Reservation Notes


Dogs –
Well-behaved dogs are permitted in camp and must be on a leash at all times. We do not allow dogs in any of our structures. If you plan to camp with your dog, you must reserve a tent-site. Clean up after your dog. While Barr Camp is dog-friendly, we remain respectful of those with allergens or a fear of dogs. We reserve the right to refuse services to those with disruptive dogs. We highly encourage you to leave your dog at home, as this is a very strenuous hike for them. We have dozens of dogs rescued off the mountain every year. 

Gear storage – For our guests with a paid reservation, we can store your gear for you while you hike. Your gear MUST be retrieved the same day. 

Food Storage – We do not have any refrigerated storage for food. We do have a bear box for our guests to store their food overnight.

Late arrivals / Early departures – For the comfort of everyone, if you are arriving after 7:00 pm we ask that you reserve a lean-to or tent site and know where it is before you arrive. It is most common for first time guests to leave at 5am before breakfast to get ahead of bad weather. Please let us know if you do not plan to stay for breakfast.
