Campers can fill water containers/trailers at the Admin Building – blue water tap to the left of the building.  This water is potable municipal water source.

There will be firewood for sale at the Permit Office during our operating hours, 9am – 7pm Friday and 9am – 4pm on Saturday/Sunday. SSASO will pre-purchase a supply of wood to use on account of the limited permit office hours. 

There are 6 large sites suitable for RVs and larger groups to the right, with a fire pit/social area in the middle, and 6 smaller tent-sized sites across the road to the left with a fire pit/social area & large parking lot.

ATTENTION CAMPERS:  Please leave campsite in same condition you found them in.  The Rustic Group campsite is normally closed at this time of year and if the sites are left in poor condition, we will lose the use of them.

All campers agree to comply by park rules. 

It is absolutely forbidden to do any type of training while on MacGregor Park premises. Dogs should not even be hooked up. Anyone participating in any kind of training will be asked to leave and likely cost SSASO the opportunity to camp for future events. Any other repercussions are at the discretion of the park wardens.
