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.

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.
