Campsite amenities include chemical toilets and drinking water. You must make a reservation to use the campsites. During the summer, kids 7 to 12 years of age may participate in a summer camp that allows them to enjoy activities in the park and spend the night in a tent. The weekend camps are sponsored by the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park ( Reservations for the backcountry campsites are also handled by the conservancy.”
