When does the TRC season open and close?
Typically, TRC aims to open on the second Saturday of April and close on the second Saturday of October. The decision is largely based on the weather and snow condition.

Can I stay at TRC during the week?
While more members enjoy TRC on the weekends, many enjoy the tranquility of fewer people. Some of our semi-permanent site members even telecommute to work. Some of our regular limited members just pitch a tent at sites next to the river and enjoy the sun during the day and a small fire at night.
How Long Can I Camp?
Camping is limited to 14 consecutive days at which time a 5 day break is required.
Do I need a reservation or can I reserve a space for tent camping?
Tent sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis (we do not take reservations for tent camping). That said, tent sites fill quickly on event weekends; however, while we have never turned anyone away, they did not get the site they really wanted.
Do I need a reservation if I bring a RV, Truck Camper or Sleeper Van?
You are required to make a reservation if you plan on using a RV, Truck Camper or Sleeper Van (see our RV Info section) for both weekday and weekend camping. RV sites do book up fast on party weekends so reserve your space way in advance.
Can I Camp On The Beach?
While TRC has sites that are next to the river, most of the beach area is on National Forest Land. Furthermore, it is better that everyone have access to the beach and river. Therefore, we ask that you camp at least 50 feet from the beach.
Can I Bring My Dog?
TRC loves seeing dogs, but on a leash, or in an enclosure. TRC may be intimidating for your dog; so, please give them the love and attention if they are distressed.
Don’t forget your doggie bags (but, you already knew that).
Can I Make A Campfire In My Limited Campsite?
There are several communal fire pits located in the Limited Camping area. We cannot permit any other open fires. This is due to the extreme fire danger rating that occurs during the summer.
There are several wheelbarrows for moving your belongings. Just return it as soon as you’re finished. The next visitor will appreciate it!
TRC prohibits nudity only to those places where the outside public can see. Typically, this includes the driveways and trails that access Mountain Loop Highway. Each semi-permanent site may have its own traditions. Historically, many TRC members exercise their clothing options while at the beach.
