Rental fees and prepaid rental deposits: A $250.00 security deposit, made by check or money order, is required to guarantee a reservation. The security deposit is not included in the rental fees, and must be added to the in camping rental cost.  The security deposit,  along with the final page of this agreement signed by the Event Coordinator (person taking responsibility for the rental group), must be received before a reservation is secured.  The full rental fee is due at least two (2) weeks in advance of arrival unless other arrangements are made.  If a reservation is made within 30 days of arrival date, the rental fees must be paid in full at time of booking.

Cancellation policy and refunds: The reservation will be cancelled by Camp Management if payment in full is not received or other arrangements made at least two (2) weeks in advance of arrival.  All rental fees paid as well as the security deposit will be refunded if the reservation is canceled at least 60 days prior to the arrival date. If reservation is cancelled less than 60 days prior to reserved date, all rental fees collected as well as the security deposit will be forfeited. If the canceled reservation is re-booked, we will refund your forfeited rental fee, after the end of that rental. No shows will be charged in full unless the cabin is re-rented.  It is recommend that private insurance is purchased to cover any potential personal liability or financial loss while at the camp.

Security Deposit: Facilities are to be left as they are found. Should the Camp Agent find the facilities used in unacceptable condition during the joint walk through, renters will be asked to make correction of the condition. Violations such as  trash left in cabin, dirty dishes left unwashed, furniture moved, etc. will be discussed and corrected. Extra cleaning, damage repairs, or replacement of missing contents not corrected before leaving will be noted by the Camp Agent and cost of restitution subtracted from the Security Deposit by Camp Management.  Security deposit will be returned via mail.

No refunds due to weather change of plans, or early departures. All guests are financially responsible for the entire booking once your reservation has been made.
