Can my friends come and visit?
Absolutely! Guests must pay a visitor fee and the number of people per site cannot exceed 8. Please call for pricing.
What is the speed limit?
Because the Camp-Resort is full of active families with children, the speed limit throughout the Camp-Resort is 5MPH and is strongly enforced for your safety. We realize that this is ridiculous. If you do not feel that you are driving ridiculously slow, then you are driving too fast.
What do I need to do to prepare for my arrival?
Check out our handy countdown calendar for all important dates leading up to your stay.
Can we bring pool toys?
Yes, you can! We allow pool toys at our Ranger Smith™ Pool.
Do you offer linen rentals?
Yes! For your convenience, we offer linen rentals. Our linen sets are $20 and include: pillow, sheets, blanket, towels, and wash cloths. For more information or to reserve your linens, check out our Add-Ons page.
What is the extra car policy and how many can be at one site?
We allow 2 cars per site (both cabin and campsite). If you have any additional vehicles, you must purchase a $5 car pass and park in our overflow parking lot near the Camp-Resort entrance.
Will my reservation guarantee a specific campsite or cabin assignment?
We do offer you the opportunity to guarantee your favorite campsite or cabin by paying our applicable lock-in fee. If you opt out of the lock-in fee, you are guaranteed your selected campsite or cabin type, but not the specific unit number.

We have firewood available for purchase and delivery at our Ranger Station and Registration Station! A bundle of firewood (7 or 8 pieces) is $8 and a bulk of firewood (2 red recycling bins) is $25. Campers are not allowed to bring their own firewood due to state regulations. This is to prevent the spread of invasive species causing deforestation. To preserve the beauty of our wooded Camp-Resort, please do not cut down or damage trees in any way.
Do you offer any discounts?

They are, but the beverage must be held in an unmarked container or koozie. This is a family-friendly Camp-Resort, so please be considerate of others and refrain from loud and unseemly language.

For 1 pet, there is a flat fee of $50. For 2 pets, there is a flat fee of $75. Pet owners are required to bring a crate(s) 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. View our Pet Waiver here.
