Check-in is at any time after noon. Guests must check out and be out of their site by 11AM. We need this hour between to make sure the site is ready for those checking in. Those who do not vacate their site by 11AM on their check out day, may be charged for a second night.
Office hours may vary depending on the time of year. Our shoulder season hours (May & September) are 11AM to 7PM and may vary. Our regular summer months schedule (June, July, August) is 7 AM to 10 PM. We adjust our hours to how busy we are as the season picks up or winds down, so we do not have set dates when the hours change.

Early Check-out Policy

We are excited to have you stay with us! Due to the shortness of the season and the high volume of activity, once you check-in we are not able to offer refunds for early check-out.


10PM to 7AM. We want all of our guest to be well rested for their upcoming adventures! For that to happen they will need to get a good nights sleep. We ask that all guests take all noise into their RVs during our quiet hours. If we can hear you inside your RV, you are still too loud. Excessive noise at any time is not allowed.


Here at Baycrest KOA we love our guests traveling with pets.  Our K-9 park is located near the top of the park and provides a fenced-in area for your pet to run around. We have a few pet rules in place for the general comfort and safety of all our guests:
  • Pets must be kept contained or on a leash at all times. 
  • When in the K-9 park, please be with your pet the entire time
  • Pets must be kept quiet. We love having a quiet, peaceful atmosphere here at Baycrest KOA for our guests. If you are planning on leaving your dog in your RV all day, they must stay quiet. If they can't stay quiet, we will ask you to take your dog with you on your adventures or to a puppy daycare in town.
  • Pet waste must be picked up. We ask that you immediately pick up after your pet. We provide animal waste bags in the park office if you do not have any of your own.
