Pets are welcome and should be under the owners control or leashed. Make sure you keep your pet with you or attended at your site. We have doggie den sites available for your pets to have off leash time. Please pick up after your pet.
Cabins or Lodges
Let us know that you’re bringing a pet and we’ll book you into a pet-friendly cabin or lodge, 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 cabin or lodge, you will be liable for $300 in cleaning charges.
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.
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.
Speed Limit is 9 ½ MPH. Please observe our speed limit to ensure the safety of all our guests. Remember…Children are playing!
