Terms and Conditions for Mackinac Lakefront Cabin Rentals

  • $4.00 non-refundable processing fee is required for all reservations (not included in rates).
  • No personal checks will be accepted upon arrival.
  • The person registered will be responsible for the condition of the cabin/site.

Firewood Rules:

DO NOT bring firewood. No one is permitted to bring firewood of ANY TYPE (includes lumber, pallets, building materials) into the campground, due to the many tree killing insects and diseases that can live in wood. Read more about our Firewood Policy.

Billboards and newspapers have been warning not to move firewood for nearly 10 years - yet people still do. Any outside wood must be confiscated. Pest-free firewood is on sale at the Park Store.

There are two community fire pits on the beach that we supply the wood for and start in the evening.


Cabin/Site Locations:

Cabin/Site numbers are not given prior to arrival. If the cabin or site type you request is not available, we will assign the next best choice. We will try, but do not guarantee a specific cabin/site. We cannot guarantee adjacent cabins/sites if you request differing site types or hook-ups and if group reservations are not submitted together.

Can I Request a Specific Cabin or Site? We try to give you what you ask for. Cabins and campsites are assigned on a first come, first serve basis, with the exception of accommodating large groups. We try, but cannot always accommodate specific location or unit number requests. We cannot give you a specific cabin or site location if there is a maintenance issue or if it means displacing a large group.

Camping in a Group: On busy weekends and holidays, large groups sites may not all be able to be together if reservations aren't early enough, if the various cabin types needed aren't similar or if it is a super busy holiday weekend. In some cases we may be able to put several cabins together with a couple of separates as a best case scenario.

July 4th and Labor Day: We have campers who have been coming for many, many years for the July 4th and Labor Day holidays. Due to the extreme popularity of the July 4th and Labor Day holidays in Mackinaw and the enlarging of our sites (we lose sites and re-situate sites each year), accommodating traditionally requested cabins for individuals and groups is nearly impossible (believe us – we try!). So please be flexible and have patience. We go by a first come, first serve basis, but also try to situate groups. Most groups may have members not adjacent. Especially if they request differing cabin types. This is not an emergency. You are on vacation, relax, be flexible, improvise, you are here to have fun! If your group isn't all adjacent, pick a site to meet at or alternate where you congregate.


Two-Vehicle Limit:

  • Limit of two vehicles per cabin/site location, including motorhome tow vehicle and any overnight guests.
  • Rates include one vehicle, fee for 2nd vehicle is $5.00/night*.
    * Fee for 2nd vehicle waived for tow vehicle.

Visitor Policy:

  • Day Guests:
    Passes are $3.00/day, per vehicle. Visiting hours: 9 am - 9 pm. No visitors or Day Guests on July 4th & Sunday of Labor Day weekend.
  • Overnight Guests:
    Extra vehicles for overnight guests are $5.00/night, per vehicle. Cabin/Site occupancy may not exceed limits with the addition of overnight guests. Overnight guests at campsites are subject to an additional fee (see campsite terms).

General Restrictions:

• Reservations are not refundable due to weather conditions.
• No loud motorcycles, cars, trucks or loud vehicles of any type are permitted. We reserve the right to determine which vehicles are too loud.

Processing:

Reservations can take 3 days to process during the summer and up to 7 days to process during the off-season.
