Important Reservation Notes
Dogs – Well-behaved dogs are welcome in camp as long as they are under control at all times and on a leash. Please do not allow your dogs inside the main cabin, bunkhouse, upper cabin, or lean-to shelters. If you plan to stay the night at Barr Camp with your dog, please reserve a tent-site. Please clean up after your dog. While Barr Camp is dog-friendly, we remain respectful of those with allergens or a fear of dogs. In order to maintain the cleanliness of our facilities as well as protect the longevity of our hard-to-obtain mattresses, we allow overnight with dogs only in your own tent.
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 refrigerated storage for food. We do have a place for our guests to store their food overnight in our bear-proof locker.
Late arrivals / Early departures – For the comfort of everyone, if you are arriving after 9:00 pm 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 – Reservation requests should be made a minimum of 48-hours prior to your stay, and the earlier you request a reservation the better your chances of availability. Reservations made after that time frame may not be processed. If you arrive without a reservation, be prepared to hike back down the trail as we do not have overflow options.
