Thank you all for your patience and understanding as we have worked to determine a new opening date in light of new government directives and orders. We know you are as eager to come camping as we are to have you here!

Unfortunately, there has not been any further clarification on campgrounds being able to open and we will remain closed through June 4. On June 4th we will make a decision regarding if we will be able to open starting June 5th.

If at any point, you have a question about your reservation, please feel free to contact our office. We would love to talk you through your options and how we can best serve you and your family.

Thank you again for your support, and we hope to see you all soon!

While we are taking every action to manage risk to health and safety, we also continue to rely on God’s provision and peace. We eagerly look forward to what God will do as families build memories that will last for generations. If there is any way we can be praying for your family, please let us know.

- Vince Dixon, Campground Manager
