Reservations are held with a 50% deposit. Your reservation is not secure until reservation has been approved, deposit payment has been processed and received. Reservations made online are not confirmed until dates, site assignment, and camper unit is accepted by owners and payment is processed.

Reservations made before February 15 will be required to keep a 7 night minimum, and reservations made before May 15 will be required to keep a minimum 5 night stay. Refunds will not be given when shortening length of stay. Reservations are not transferable without management approval.
We are a very small park, with a very short season, and are located “at the end of the road”. For these reasons, our cancellation penalties are significant. Reservations made within 21 days of stay will be charged for full reservation at the time of booking, refunds will not be given regardless if the site is re-booked for any period of time.
Cancellation and Change penalties apply * PLEASE READ *:
Cancellations more than 45 days prior to reservation will be refunded the deposit, less the amount for one night stay.
Cancellations between 21 and 45 days prior to reservation will not be refunded the 50% deposit.
Cancellations of 21 days or less will be charged for the entire balance of the reservation, which is the remaining 50% due. Sites associated with cancellations will be made available to other guests. The ability to re-rent the site will not affect cancellation policies.
When the reservation is made for 5 days or more, before May 15, changes below 5 night stay will be charged for a 5 night minimum. Other changes to existing reservations, that reduce the number of nights, will be handled with the same policy timeline as cancellations.
When still meeting the 5 night minimum, other changes made between 21 and 45 days prior will be charged 50% for the number of nights the reservation is reduced by.
Changes with 21 days notice or less, will be charged the full amount. If payment is not made for cancellations, future reservations will not be accepted until previous amount is paid in full.
