    Fees and Cancellation

    CANCELLATION POLICY:

    CAMPSITES, CABINS:
    Cancellations made prior to the minimum booking window for the facility will be provided a full refund minus the non-refundable $5.00 reservation fee. Cancellations made inside the minimum reservation window, but prior to arrival, will be charged the first nights campsite or cabin use fee as well as the $5.00 reservation fee. All remaining funds will be refunded.

    Cancellations (or early departures) made after the scheduled arrival date will be charged for the nights that have passed (or the minimum stay requirement, whichever is greater), plus one additional nights campground or cabin use fee and the $5.00 reservation fee. Any remaining funds will be refunded.

    No-shows will be charged the full amount of the campsite/cabin reservation fee and the $5.00 reservation fee, without refund.

    SHELTERS: The reservation fee for Shelters is $25 for each day the shelter is reserved. All Shelter fees are non-refundable unless the area is closed by the Department. Upon vacating the site, shelter users are required to remove all personal belongings and place all trash in the appropriate receptacles located at the site. Failure to clean up the area after you leave will result in a disposal fee of $50. Failure to pay the disposal fee will result in denial of future reservations until the fee is paid in full.
