Can I Request a Specific Cabin, Motel Room, or Campsite?
Reservations are assigned on a first come, first serve basis, with an exception for accommodating large groups. We try, but cannot always accommodate specific location or unit number requests. Unit numbers are assigned, but not provided prior to arrival.
Camping in a Group
On busy weekends and holidays, large groups may not be able to be together if reservations aren't made early enough or if the various camping unit types needed aren't similar. In some cases, we may be able to put several cabins together with a couple of separates as a best-case scenario. We cannot guarantee adjacent cabins/sites if you request differing site types or hook-ups and if group reservations are not submitted together. For more information and group reservation instructions, see: Group Camping.
