To all of our camping patrons:
Anyone who experienced an interruption of their overnight stay at one of our parks due to the recent government shutdown will be receiving a refund. Credit card reservations will be refunded beginning week of July 10 and will take 2-3 weeks to complete. Those patrons will be notified when their refund has been processed. For cash and check reservations, please contact the park office where your reservation was placed for further details. We regret the interruption and disappointment that the temporary shutdown caused.
We value you, our visitors and look forward to seeing you soon.
