For an RV, the best way to save a site is to post your ticket on site with a personal belonging, such as a lawn chair. A registered license plate or ticket must be displayed at all times. You may also utilize our ‘occupied’ notices available through our campground hosts.
Tent sites must have a tent on-site upon registration. To save a site, a tent and a valid ticket must be displayed on-site.
Taking a picture of your properly saved site with your phone can help eliminate disputes should they arise.
Improperly saved sites will be cleared and made available to other campers.
