Guests are allowed one dog per site (or two dogs per group site.) Guests bringing their dog(s) are required to select the $45 'additional pet fee' for each dog during online booking.
This is a safe, family friendly campground, so if you describe your dog as "not good with other dogs" or "not good with kids" please do not bring it along. Dogs are not to be left unattended inside the camping units at any time. Dogs are not allowed on the bedding. We suggest bringing a dog bed or another blanket to lay over the bedding to help keep dirt and pet hair to a minimum. Please also be sure to clean up any pet waste on the campsite and trails. An additional cleaning fee may be assessed for any violations.
Cancellations must be made by midnight (12:00am Central Time), at least 30 days (four weeks) prior to rental date, in order to receive a full refund (minus processing fees). No refunds will be given for no shows, late arrivals, or early departures.
Cancellations less than 30 days in advance will will be non-refundable.
The summary of it is- please be respectful to your fellow campers (no loud music from 10 pm - 7 am, and no littering) and please be respectful to our camping units and decorations (no smoking inside campers/ tents, and no damaging or removing of decorations or furnishings from the property). We've worked very hard to create just the right ambiance at our sites and we only ask that our guests can honor that. We simply want everyone to enjoy themselves while they're here! The policy outlined below is to ensure the longevity and integrity of the campground so guests can continue to enjoy it for many years to come. Thank you!

We want to assure our guests that we are taking every precaution to help keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The campground is set on 80 acres, making social distancing from other guests very easy to practice!
We carefully sanitize the inside of each bathroom, canvas tent, cabin, and trailer with EPA approved disinfectants after each group checks-out.
Golf carts are provided for transporting belongings (and guests) to the campsites from the parking lot and vice versa. Each golf cart has an alcohol-based hand sanitizer inside for guests to use while borrowing the carts. We also clean these carts between bookings.
Finally, while we do provide dishes and cooking equipment, we strongly encourage guests to bring and use their own single-use items, if they want to be extra cautious. This includes, but is not limited to paper plates, napkins, plastic utensils, and plastic cups.
