  2. Lottie Matthews says:

    How long can you stay if you’re in a tent

    • Hi Lottie,
      During periods of high demand, the maximum length of a camping or cabin stay is 14 nights. After 14 nights, the camper must leave the park for at least three nights before returning for a new stay.
      Based on availability and once the camper is registered and on-site, the Park Manager or designee, at their discretion, may extend a camper’s current stay up to an additional 14 nights. Maximum continuous length of stay in any one park is 28 nights.
