The marina office will be able to provide current openings or put your name on a waiting list. If you are on the waiting list you will be called as soon as a seasonal campsite becomes open. You can also be put on the waiting list for the following season.

We begin calling on that list the first week of January. There is no obligation from being put on the list. Once you become a seasonal camper you will be required to have $100,000 liability insurance on your camper. The campground closes on October 31st at 2:00 PM. Your camper can be left on grounds for storage purposes only. The grounds are locked off and permission must be obtained from management for access to the grounds.

Each year the contract for your site will automatically renew unless seasonal site prices are changed or if there are any changes to the lease. If at any time you wish to change sites your name will be put on a waiting list.
