Reasons To Plan Your Camping Trip Early
Secure Your Ideal Camping Spot
Is your ideal camping spot close to our fun-filled activities or tucked away from crowded areas? Check out our park map and find the perfect spot to set up camp.
When you plan your camping trip early, you have a better chance of securing your favorite campsite or cabin. In fact, you can lock in your favorite campsite or cabin by paying our applicable $25 lock-in fee when booking. Keep in mind if you opt-out of the lock-in fee, you are guaranteed your selected campsite or cabin type, but not the specific unit/site number.
