Campers may not register for more than two (2) campsites, including cabins and RV/tent sites, during a single camping stay without approval from park management. An individual is only permitted to be the primary occupant for one site. The primary occupant is responsible for ensuring all rules and regulations are followed by the campers and guests in their site.

In the event that you change your dates (once confirmed) or cancel your reservation, the following cancellation policies apply:

  • 14 days or more outside of reservation date full refund minus a $10.00 cancellation/change fee.
  • 13 days or less from reservation date full refund minus 1 night stay, 2 night stay on holiday weekends.
  • 48 hours from reservation date no refund or changes accepted.

If you are attempting to add a date to your stay, change the site number, upgrade your site, adjust amount of guests, pets and any other modification not resulting in changes to the original reservation arrival date, you will be able to do so through the call center or online prior to your stay, for no additional change fee.
