Each member that books a site will be responsible for their own reservation. Those reservations will be subject to our standard individual reservation cancellation policy. After 15 days, any un-reserved sites will be released.
- Group reservations made 3 months or closer to arrival must be paid in full at time of booking. These reservations will be subject to our standard 10% cancellation fee until 30 days before arrival, at which point the reservations become non-refundable and non-changeable.
- Communal spaces cannot be reserved for exclusive use and are first-come, first-served.
- Please observe max occupancy in communal spaces and camp sites, especially the kitchen and dining area.
- Due to our use permit, group events can only be for campers, outside guests are not allowed at group functions.
