Damage Deposits
$75.00 per cabin for in council units, $125 for out of council units. 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
No refunds or changes of dates will be made if a unit fails to show up on approved dates. A refund or change of date may be made only if a unit notifies the Camping Dept. at least 60 days in advance of scheduled date. Units canceling less than sixty (60) days will not receive any refund. If we are able to rent the cabin, they will receive a full refund.

Service Projects
If your unit plans to work on a Ranger approved eight-hour camp improvement or conservation Service Project there will be no charge for use of a ground site. Or, if you are reserving another facility, deduct $25.00. 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.
