Refund, Deposit, Payment

Sadly, we cannot refund any part of your unused stay
if you choose to shorten it even in cases of emergency, family crisis, illness, inclement weather, etc. We have turned other families away in order to hold the site for your family. We reserve the right to remove any guest or revoke privileges at any time with no refund to maintain the peace and relaxation of our family campers.

1. A deposit of one night's rate is required to hold a spot. (We do not hold sites longer than the end of the business day)
