Bunkhouses and Other Services

At Tuscarora, we have 9 private bunkhouses perfect for the night before or after a canoe trip.  These basic bunkhouses with twin beds and electricity are located close to our shower house facility.  Plan on using your sleeping bag for your night’s stay.  Bunkhouses are private for your group, so no worries – you won’t be bunking with strangers!
