Description

Build your own fort for the weekend at Fort Richardson Campground! All sites are decked-out with water/electric hook-ups, a picnic table, fire ring, nearby restrooms and some even have sewage so you can spend your time fine-tuning your camping super-fort. Will there be an oriental carpet sitting by the doorway of your RV? Maybe Star Wars-themed string lights for ambiance? Even if all of the above sites are taken, you’ll just have to get crafty in the overflow area, located adjacent to the parking lot. How about a tent made out of sticks and rawhide? Now we’re talking!
