Reservation System Operation
All reservations are made on a first come first serve basis.  Reservations are not complete (i.e. sites are not officially reserved) until the transaction has been fully processed.  There are four steps in the transaction process:

  1. Enter Contact Information
  2. Select Date(s)

  4. Submit Payment

The Trustees are committed to making the reservation process as fair as possible for all members of the public. Please be mindful that, due to increasing demand and limited camp sites, reservations are made very quickly.

What are cyanobacteria blooms?
Over the last few years we have experienced cyanobacteria blooms at Tully. Cyanobacteria, also called blue-green algae, is a naturally occurring organism that, Generally, it loves and grows well in the same warm and relatively dry weather that we like to camp in!

The blooms are a concern to both The Trustees and the Army Corps of Engineers. We continue to work with our Consultant and water quality experts from the Corps to closely monitor the cyanobacteria population in Tully Lake. We do regular testing and when cyanobacteria  concentrations become elevated, we recommend (and post) that people and pets should avoid swimming. Once the high population of cells and toxins are flushed from the lake ( two ‘clear’ tests, 5 days apart), the water is safe for swimming again and the public is notified.
