Reservations & Cancellations

100_0643.JPGMake a reservation

  • Reservations may be made in person, by phone or email, up to one year in advance.
  • If you wish to reserve the same cabin for the same time the following year, you may usually do so at check-out (unless you are filling a slot from which someone took a one-year pass).
  • You may take a one-year pass on your usual reservation once after every five years at the resort without losing your ability to re-up for the following year. Cancellation fees still apply.


  • Your reservation is confirmed once we have your deposit made by credit card (Visa or MasterCard), check or cash. You may cancel within 24 hours without penalty.
  • The deposit will equal half the rental amount for the cabin for your stay; $400 per week maximum.


  • If you cancel your reservation 60 days or longer before your scheduled arrival date, we will return your deposit less a $50 cancellation fee.
  • If you cancel less than 60 days before your arrival date, and we are able to rebook your cabin, we will return your deposit, less a $100 cancellation fee. If we are unable to rebook the accommodation, we will keep the entire deposit.
  • If you arrange for someone to fill your reservation and they fulfill your commitment, you will not be charged a cancellation fee. You will also retain the ability to rebook the cabin for the same week the following year.
  • If you leave Camp before the end of your scheduled stay, you will be charged for the entire rental period.

Check-in and check-out

  • Check-in time is from 2 pm to 9 pm. We will likely call to learn your estimated time of arrival.
  • Check-out is by 10 am.
  • Please come in to settle the rest of your bill by 5 pm the day before your departure.
