Long Term Stays

Long Term Stays are defined as a stay longer than 14 days, but less than 90.

During our peak season, which is defined below, stay limits are 14 days.  During low season you can camp up to 30-days without a long-term agreement.  Any stay longer than 30 days requires an approved long-term agreement.

Long-term stays are limited to 10 sites per campground and are available on a first-come first-serve basis until all available sites are rented.  Tent camping in ineligible for long term stays.
