We make every effort to accommodate requests and site preferences, however we do reserve the right to move guests in order to maximize the use of the park. Final site assignments are released on the day of arrival. Park management takes many factors into consideration when assigning sites. We consider group reservations that request to be together, length of stay, handicap accessibility, and length of RV unit. We will only guarantee a specific site if a guest is able to commit to a 3+ month stay with us. Special consideration will be given to guests staying January 1 through April 1.
