Damage Deposits

A check for $100.00 per cabin is required. Your reservation will not be accepted without the appropriate deposit. We ask that you make out two (2) separate checks, one for the application and one for the damage deposit. The latter will be returned to you if there is no damage, vandalism, loss or theft of equipment and/or facilities at check-out time, unless unit fails to check-out with the Campmaster or Ranger.

Refund Policy

A refund or change of date may be made only if a unit notifies the Camping Dept. at least 30 days in advance of scheduled date. Units canceling less than thirty (30) days will not receive any refund.  For cabin rentals, if we are able to rent the cabin, a full refund will be granted.

Service Projects

If your unit plans to work on a Ranger approved eight-hour camp improvement or conservation Service Project, a free campsite can be earned. Or, if you are reserving another facility, you may earn a $25.00 credit on your next reservation.  Help us nibble away at the scores of projects needed to maintain and improve our camps. Projects to be mutually agreed upon by unit and Ranger.
