Are alcoholic beverages allowed?
They are, but the beverage must be held in an unmarked container or koozie. This is a family-friendly Camp-Resort, so please be considerate of others and refrain from loud and unseemly language.
How do I make changes/add on items to my current reservation?
If you are needing to make changes or add something to your reservation, such as a golf cart, please give us a call during office hours and we can help over the phone. Please be ready with your confirmation number.
Who can make changes to my reservation?
Only the person whose name the reservation is under may request changes to the reservation unless consent has been given and is documented in the reservation.
Are campfires allowed?
You bet, unless there is a burn ban. Please confine them to provided fire rings and do not leave them unattended. Firewood may not be brought into the Camp-Resort from an external location as it can spread bugs and pests to our beautiful trees. Firewood is available for purchase at the Ranger Station.
What is your cancellation policy?
We do not give credit or refunds due to the discomforts of nature. The fun continues rain or shine. Our cancellation policy varies depending on the timing of your cancellation notice in advance of the reservation date, please view all the details on our Rules and Policies page.
Can I change my reservation dates a week before I am supposed to arrive?
If your reservation is for a cabin, ANY and ALL changes must be made at least 3 weeks before your original arrival date. For RV site reservations, ANY and ALL changes to your reservation must be made at least 2 weeks before your original arrival date.
Can I bring pool toys to play within the pools?

No. Leaving early is considered as a cancellation and the cost of the remaining day(s) will be forfeited.
Do you have Wi-Fi?
Yes, we have free Wi-Fi throughout the Camp-Resort – speeds will vary. We do ask that you refrain from steaming videos, as it tends to slow down the speed for everyone.
What do I do with my linens if I'm checking out?
If you rented linens for your stay you can leave them in the cabin and our Housekeeping staff will collect them and clean them.
Can I arrive early and/or depart late?
We are not allowing early access/arrivals (before check-in time) until further notice. Extended access (after check-out time) does not guarantee guest will be able to stay on site/in cabin until departing from the Camp-Resort. Early access/extended access only guarantees access to the Camp-Resort and Camp-Resort amenities, which requires parking in overflow. Access is based on availability and involves a fee based on the time of check-in – please call for info. We absolutely cannot accommodate access prior to 11AM, so please plan your travel accordingly.
What is your smoking policy?
As a courtesy to all our guests, smoking of any substance (including vaping) is not allowed in any outdoor common areas (pools, pavilion, etc.) or indoor facilities (cabins, screened-in porches, restrooms, recreation buildings, etc.). All of our cabins are non-smoking.
Do you have quiet hours?
We do! Quiet hours are from 11PM – 8AM daily. All campers must observe quiet hours by regulating their activities so that others will not be disturbed.
Do you offer day passes?
We sure do! Day Camp Passes are available during peak season. You can learn all about them, including the cost, on our Park Passes page.
How many times am I able to change my reservation?
The first change is complimentary. Any changes made after that will cost $15.00 per occurrence.
Will my reservation guarantee a specific campsite or cabin assignment?
Specific campsites or cabins may be requested, but are not guaranteed. We do offer you the opportunity to guarantee your favorite campsite or cabin by paying our applicable locking fee. If you opt out of the locking fee, you are guaranteed your selected site or cabin type, but NOT the specific unit number.
What forms of payment are accepted for my reservation?
We gladly accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Full payment is due at the time of booking.
What is good camping etiquette?
If you’re a first time camper, you may have some questions on the best camping etiquette. Learn how you can be a good neighbor, stay safe during your trip, and more, with our etiquette guide.
Do you offer a military discount?
Yes! We want to show our appreciation for all active duty and retired military service men and women by offering 10% off during weekday stays in a cabin or at a campsite – all season long!

Pets are allowed free of charge at RV sites and with an applicable fee for select pet-friendly cabins – for 1 pet, there is a flat fee of $50. For 2 pets, there is a flat fee of $75. 2 pet max per cabin/RV site. Pets are NOT allowed at our playgrounds, restrooms, or other buildings. Pet owners are required to bring a crate(s) for their pet(s) and are responsible for pet clean-up and noise control. Please keep your pet on a leash and never unattended.

What is the speed limit?
The speed limit throughout the Camp-Resort is 5 MPH. We realize that this is ridiculous. If you do not feel that you are driving ridiculously slow, then you are driving too fast.

Personal golf carts are allowed with proof of insurance, a signed contract, and an annual fee of $45 + tax (no prorating). For your convenience, we do have golf carts available to rent. Motorized wheelchairs are allowed, but ATVs and motorized scooters are not allowed.
