BOOKING & PAYMENT
All reservations must be done through the Campspot online reservation system and all reservations require full payment at the time of booking.
Where possible, campers should reserve their site online prior to arriving. All campers must be registered to stay overnight in the campground.
Camping Rates are based on a per unit basis: if you would like to book multiple units onto 1 site, they will be charged the same nightly rate as the original unit. We encourage you to let our camp host know of any additional units on your site as we'd like to arrange for payment for these additional units prior to your arrival date. Please contact us at 403-931-341, Ext. 3 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to provide the additional unit information and to make payment.
