Overview

Juniper Flats Group Campground is one of only a few places to stay on beautiful Grand Island. The island's scenic natural beauty and interesting history make it a popular place for camping and other outdoor activities.
The Grand Island National Recreation Area boasts massive 300-foot wave-cut sandstone cliffs, 13,500 acres of lush forest, beaches of fine sand, winter ice caves and historic buildings and artifacts dating back as far as 2000 B.C.

Recreation

The island offers more than 30 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, complete with spectacular scenery. Visitors also enjoy fishing on the island. Anglers will find plentiful salmon, trout, perch, pike, walleye and bass. A variety of wildlife also make its home on the island.
Kayaking, canoeing and boating are also popular pastimes. Boats, however, must be anchored offshore because of the rocky lake bottom and heavy surf.

Facilities

The campground provides one large group tent campsite, equipped with tables and a campfire circle. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Bear poles and bear boxes are available for food storage.

Natural Features

Juniper Flats Group Campground is located on the west side of Grand Island near the Waterfall and Mather beaches.
The area is heavily forested and primarily shady throughout the day. The campground is situated away from the beach, but the lake is visible from the site.
