Premium Weekend EXPRESS Check-In

Advance reservations are suggested.  A reservation guarantees a site but not a specific site.  However we will attempt to accommodate site requests when possible.  All reservations are for two adults (ages 18+) and two children (ages 17 & under). Up to eight persons and two cars including guests and visitors may occupy one campsite.  Extra adults and/or children require extra daily fees.  Utility and cargo trailers must be parked on the guest’s campsite.  Boats and boat trailers must be parked at the marina, or you may visit the front desk to rent a private dry storage space.

For regular operating season dates a deposit equal to one nights camping is required to reserve a site (except for premium weekends).  No reservations will be held without a deposit.

To qualify for a weekly or monthly rate you must stay a minimum of 7 or 30 consecutive non-premium nights. Premium nights will not qualify for any discounted rate.

A three-night minimum stay is required on premium weekends and must be paid in full at the time of reservation.  Oyster Festival requires a two-night minimum stay for Friday arrivals, a three-night minimum stay for Thursday arrivals and payment in full at the time of reservation.
