Visitor Policy

Guests are welcome to have visitors at their site. Guests need to pre-register their visitors at the office. Visitors must stop at the office upon their arrival to register their vehicle and obtain a vehicle pass. A daily visitor fee of $6.00 per person is charged. Visitors are able to participate in the activities, including the swimming pool. We realize that your guests may be just stopping in to say hi or pick you up, so we will refund their visitor fee if they depart the campground within 1 hour.

Guests are responsible for their visitors, and all visitors must abide by the campground guidelines. Visitors are asked to leave when the office closes.

Quiet Hours are from 11 pm to 8 am.

Pet Policy

Pets are Welcome at the campground!  We do ask that pets be kept on leash and under control at all times.  If walking your pet, you must have visible means for picking up after them.  Dogs that show aggressive behavior are not permitted on the campground.  If staying in one of our sleeping cabins, a $10 per pet, per night fee is required.  Sorry, our Deluxe Cabins are not pet friendly.
