Check-in starts at 2:00 pm for tents, RVs, and cabins. If you arrive during our office hours, someone will be happy to greet you and get you all set up for your stay. If your arrival time is later than we are open (times vary), please see our night registration box at the front of our office and to the left of our main door. In the box, you will find a site map with your name and site number on it! Don't have a reservation? No problem! Please fill out a night registration slip and put it in the drop box. Choose one of the empty sites listed in the registration box to fit your camper size! 
Please Note: We are often full during the summer, so a reservation is highly encouraged to ensure a spot to accommodate your needs. Please check the list in the night registration before proceeding to any spot if you do not have an after-hours reservation to ensure you don't accidentally take another late arrival's already registered site. Please note any early arrivals will be assessed a $10.00 early check-in fee if site is available.

Site Requests and Group Sites

Use the "Select My Site" feature if you want a specific site or to be next to someone you are traveling with. A $10 fee is applied per site per stay and is limited by availability. We cannot guarantee sites next to one another, so please use this option if you would like to be side by side. Our staff will do their best to put you next to your traveling companions, but we cannot guarantee side-by-side sites that do not use the Select My Site option. 
*Please note that this $10 fee will be added to any online reservations or phone reservations that are requesting to be next to someone.

We understand things happen, and you might not be able to vacate your site before 11:00 AM; late check-outs are $10.00 and can be arranged in the office on or before 10:00 AM.

Quiet Hours

Quiet hours are from 10pm-7am. Enjoy your bonfire late into the evening and enjoy our beautiful starry skies, but we just ask that you be a courteous neighbor. If you're an early riser and like to catch those beautiful morning sunrises over a cup of coffee, we just ask that you be a courteous neighbor.

Firewood Policy

No outside firewood permitted.  We strive to protect our trees in Minnesota and outside wood can be detrimental to our local trees. Remember, infested firewood may not show visible symptoms. It is illegal to transport hardwood firewood out of Minnesota quarantined counties, unless it is MDA or USDA certified. Moving uncertified hardwood firewood out of quarantined counties is illegal and is punishable up to a $7,500.00 fine per violation, per day.  Due to the strict laws in MN we offer our own local  firewood for a small fee and will even deliver it to your site. 
If you are checking in after hours and would like firewood, please call us ahead of time and we will deliver firewood to your site before you arrive.

RV Sites

All RV sites are for RV's only. We do not allow tents on RV sites. If you have anyone wanting to sleep in a tent traveling with you, please contact the campground and we will do our very best to put your tenters close to your RV site.

Pet Policy

Well-behaved pets are welcome! Please be sure they are leashed at all times and cleaned up after. Pets are not allowed in any of the buildings or Pool area (except service animals). We have a KampK9 for our furry friends to run around and play without a leash! Pet-Friendly Camping Cabins are available with an additional $20.00 fee.

Speed Limit

Please maintain a 5mph speed limit in the park and remember that pedestrians have the right away. We don't want any accidents!

Visitor Policy

We love that you want to share our park with your friends and family! We just ask that your visitors make a quick stop at our office to register their vehicle and get a parking pass. Our office staff will let them know where they can park, as each site is only allowed one vehicle. The cost per day is $5.00 per person. Thank you for following this guideline, as it helps us from having to interrupt your visit!

Garbage and Recycling

We appreciate you helping us keep our park clean! Our garbage and recycling containers are conveniently located as you are exiting the park.

Bathrooms and Showers

Step into one of the cleanest campground showers and enjoy the fantastic water pressure and hot water! We are known for having the cleanest bathrooms! Please do not hesitate to let our staff know if something needs our attention so we can correct it immediately. We have a lot of guests and we try to keep everything clean and sanitized for all to enjoy! Restrooms are open all evening and may be closed from 11am-1:30pm to allow for proper cleaning and prepping.
