General Campground Information

Golf Carts

We do not have golf cart rentals at our park. Guests may bring their own cart with the following criteria: must be "ELECTRIC ONLY," must carry an insurance policy on the cart and the cart is to be driven by a licensed driver only.

Visitor Policy

Guests visiting campers must register at the office, park in the parking lot and exit the park by 10:00pm. There is a limit of number of visitors per site/cabin. Visitor fees may apply.

Check-in and Check-out times

Check-in time is 2:00 pm daily. If you would like to check in early, please call the office ahead of arrival. You MAY be subject to an early arrival fee. We often have guests who will be arriving late, and sometimes after the office is closed. Travel plans can change in the blink of an eye, but we ask that you try to plan your trip so you will arrive during daylight hours. This will help you during set-up and also provide the least amount of distraction for your neighbors. 

Check-out is 11:00 am. If you are not able to make that timeline, please call the office to let us know. We will be as flexible as we can.

Additional camping units

We only permit ONE camping unit per site. No combinations of RV+tent, cabin+tent, etc.

After Hours check-in

Late arrivals can use our night registration center to secure a campsite, depending on availability. Our office closes at 8:00pm from March through the end of October and at 6:00pm November through the end of February. We understand travel plans can change unexpectedly and you may arrive after hours but we ask that you make every effort to arrive before 10pm on any given night, which is when our quiet time begins. Arrivals after 10pm can cause disruptions to our other guests. We appreciate your understanding.

On site storage

We now offer On Site storage - inquire at the office for information.
