Q. Can we arrive earlier than check-in time and how late can we arrive?
A. If you plan to be early, please give us a call and check to see if your site will be available. We usually only allow the earliest check in around 12 Noon but just call and make sure. We can only park people up until 11 PM. We understand this may be an inconvenience for some campers. However, we cannot disturb the other campers trying to sleep. There are also large trees and rocks which is why we help everyone back to their site. Please respect the other campers and try to arrive before 11 PM. (Cabins are the exception, just call and we will unlock your cabin for you!)
A. First, we only charge for kids when we have activities available in our campround (regular season, holidays, and discount season weekends). During this time, we offer numerous activities for kids including crafts, mini golf, scavenger hunts, tournaments, candy bar bingo, games, Yogi Bear Hey-rides and appearances, movies, karaoke, concerts, and much more. Here at our park, we don't want to charge for individual activities or amenities for our guests. Although we charge for kids, you are receiving much more in our many complimentary services without the hassle of having to pay for each service we offer. To see what we do charge for and how much, see our rates and policies page.
A. The only difference is that our premium sites are wider sites to accommodate larger groups, tents with campers, or just a little extra room to spread out. They offer the same hookups as the regular site.
