We understand that it is important that where you decide to spend your vacation time meets your expectations. We want all campers to have a pleasant, relaxing and safe experience, and we make every attempt to ensure that will happen. The vast majority of people who visit us have a great experience, but on rare occasions, campers are unhappy. Please review this information, to help you make your decision.

The enforcement of our rules and policies:
Most of our guests appreciate that we enforce our rules and policies. We feel that our rules and policies are just common sense, and are necessary for the safety and enjoyment of all. Sometimes people are not happy that we enforce the rules and policies that we publish on our website. We hope that all campers read and accept our rules and policies prior to making a reservation. A copy of the rules and policies is given to all campers on arrival.

Cancelations and refunds:
Please read our policies before you call for a reservation. We adhere to our policies to be consistent and fair to all customers, so please do not ask us to make exceptions. We do not give refunds for early departures if a reservation is made. If you want to be able to get a refund for early departure, or if you do not agree with our reservation policies, you can always camp without a reservation, if a site is available.

Late check-in:
Checking in after dark can be dangerous, and is disturbing to other campers. If you think that you may arrive after dark, it would be best to come the next morning, please do not ask us to make an exception. Late night check-ins are not allowed, although, if you call ahead we may let you park outside the gate and register in the morning. If you are expecting members of your party to arrive late, you will have to meet them at the gate and let them in.

Our Beach and boat ramp:
We have a complete description of our beach on this website, most people have a great time at the beach, but sometimes people do not read the description and are disappointed. Our pictures show the beach as it is most of the time during the summer, but it may be rocky when you get here. Our launch ramp is suitable for most boats up to 18ft, a 4 wheel drive vehicle is recommended for launching. The lake level fluctuates; if the level is low launching may be more difficult.

Our Bath house:
The bath house is intended for use by tent campers, and those who do not have bath rooms in their RV’s. It is cleaned and maintained regularly, but the condition depends on how many people are using it, and how considerate they are. We are very responsive if notified that there is a problem, or if cleaning is necessary between normal maintenance. If you are planning to use the bath house please consider that it is a public facility, if you would prefer more privacy or would like to have more control over conditions, we rent cabins and cottages, or you could bring an RV.

Camp sites:
We make every effort to give an accurate description of our campsites including sizes, pictures, and location in relation to the bathhouse. We encourage all prospective campers to view all of our information and inspect our facilities prior to camping.

Changing sites upon arrival:
As a courtesy, we may ask at check-in if you would like to change your site if we notice that an upgrade is available. We do this especially when it is your first visit. You can also ask for this, if available we are happy to do it.

Our electric service:
All of our overnight RV camping sites have updated 30 or 50 amp electric services. Although we rarely have a problem, sometimes breakers will cut out under heavy loads, and it is necessary for us to reset them. Our electric service is monitored to ensure adequate voltage. At times, power company voltage has been below standards, when this happens it is usually corrected quickly.

Our water pressure:
We have a gravity fed water system, and while our pressure is normally adequate, sometimes during busy times it can be low on some sites. Campers that prefer higher water pressure will sometimes use their on board tank and water system. Inline water filters in RV’s can reduce pressure. Our water is clean, filtering is normally not necessary. Larger trailers and motor homes can sometimes have problems with pressure that is adequate for other units. Our bath house and nearby sites are not affected by pressure fluctuations.

Behavior issues with other campers:
Besides our safety policies, the most important rules we have are the ones that are in place to provide an enjoyable and relaxing experience for all. Management rarely enters the camping areas, except when necessary for regular maintenance and nightly security tours. Unless we hear excessive noise we assume everyone is being conscientious of their neighbors. We encourage campers to let us know if something is making them unhappy, so that we can correct the situation.
