We are a pet-friendly resort! While there’s no charge for bringing your pet with your RV please don’t leave your pet unattended outside or erect any type of fence or pen around your site. We do offer pet-friendly lodging accommodations. Let us know that you’re bringing a pet and we’ll book you into a pet-friendly cabin, subject to availability. We charge a $25 non-refundable cleaning deposit per pet, per stay (2 pet limit). Unfortunately, if your pet persuades you to sneak him or her into a non-pet accommodation, you will be charged a $300 cleaning fee. Pet owners are required to bring a leash for their pets and are responsible for pet clean-up and noise control. For the safety of our guests, pets must be up to date on vaccinations. We reserve the right to remove hostile and disruptive pets from the park. If your dog shows behavior that is protective and unfriendly to strangers, please leave it home. If you decide to bring your dog and it exhibits this type of behavior the owner or management of the park will ask you to please find other camping accommodations.

We gladly accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.
HOW DO I GET MY REWARD POINTS?
Your points are added after your stay at our park. If you do not see your points added within a month of leaving our park, please contact us and we will gladly help you.
How will rain or other inclement weather affect my visit to the waterpark?
To ensure the safety of all our guests, the weather is constantly being monitored, if severe weather enters the area, we may be forced to temporarily close aquatic attractions until the threat has passed. If the weather is sustained through the remainder of the day management may make the decision to close for the rest of the day, at this point the determination of whether rain checks will be provided will occur based on the time of day of closure. If the temperature for the day is not forecast to reach at least 70 degrees, management may deem it necessary to forego the operation of the Waterpark for the day. Keep an eye on social media for updates to operation regarding inclement weather.
