Moonshine Park rules changed

According to a news release form Lincoln County,–

“To address issues with overcrowding, guest and staff safety, and access to county recreation facilities, Lincoln County Parks will require overnight camping reservations during the 2024 season.”

Parks Supervisor Kelly Perry said, “First, we have introduced a maximum limit of six individuals per campsite at Moonshine, down from the previous allowance of 10, This adjustment is necessary to alleviate strain on our septic system, which is currently over capacity.”

Perry continued, “Additionally, Lincoln County Parks has implemented restrictions on the number of vehicles permitted per campsite. Each campsite is now limited to one RV/vehicle and one additional vehicle.

It’s important to note that reservations are now required for all campsites. This change
aims to prevent the disappointment, inconvenience and even open conflict experienced
by many visitors under the previous first-come, first-served system, which often led to
overcrowding and frustration due to lack of available space.”

Following a review period, reservations for the B-loop will be open for the upcoming summer season starting May 1. This decision was made to provide equitable access to all visitors while assuring local residents have access to a beloved gathering spot. So far, 80% of reservations through the new system have been Lincoln County residents.

For day use visitors, Moonshine Park continues to have a total of 27 spaces available.
Day use fees are $5 per day or $35 for an annual pass – this has not changed. To
ensure the safety and enjoyment of all park users, overflow parking within the park will
not be permitted to ensure clear fire lanes and access for emergency vehicles.
