  • If you do not pick up after your pet your card will be billed $10

  • Pets are not allowed in the shower house and we request you do not loiter with, or tie your pet in front of the shower house, as some people are afraid of dogs and this would limit their access to the facility

POLICIES

Reservation and Cancellation

By providing your credit card information you agree to the following fees and policies: 

Regular Season Reservation Policies

  • Reservations require a non-refundable fee, equal to the first night of your reservation, to hold the site. The fee will be billed to your card the same day the reservation is made. Balance of the reservation, plus tax, will be due in full at check-in.

  • At no time, or for any reason, are reservation fees refundable.

  • Cancellations for reservations made 14 days or more, from noon on date of check-in, forfeit the reservation fee but avoid cancellation fees.

  • Cancelling a reservation less than 14 days , but more than 1 day, from noon on date of check-in will forfeit the reservation fee as well as a $10 per night cancellation fee. For example, if you are scheduled to arrive July 29 for a three-night stay, and you cancel your reservation any time after noon on July 15, but before noon on July 28, there will be a $30 cancellation fee charged to your credit card. This includes changes to reservations that reduce the number of nights from the original reservation.

  • Cancellations for reservations within 24 hours of your check-in date, your credit card will be charged the full amount of your reservation. In other words, if you are scheduled to arrive July 29 for a three-night stay, and you need to cancel any time after noon on July 28 your credit card will be charged the full amount of your reservation.

  • No shows, without cancellation, will be charged the full amount of your reservation.

  • If you choose to extend your stay beyond initial booking, you may be required to move sites. (Prior reservations have first priority.)

  • Groups of 4 or more units traveling together will be charged the reservation fee and cancellation fee at time of reservation. This charge will be non-refundable regardless the reason.

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Reservation Policies

  • Please note we have made significant changes to our rally reservation policy effective Jan 01, 2021.

  • Reservation deposit will be based on site rate only. Fees for additional persons, or other charges, will be collected at check-in.

  • Reservations made for Rally dates require a non-refundable deposit equal to 50% of the reservation total to hold the site. The deposit will be billed to your card the same day reservation is made.

  • You can cancel your reservation anytime up until 21 days from the arrival date of your reservation without incurring a cancellation fee. Three weeks (21 days) from the arrival date of your reservation, your card will be billed the remaining 50% of the site rate. 

  • Site rate fees are non-refundable regardless of time or reason.

  • If your reservation includes an official rally date, the entire reservation will be considered a rally reservation.

  • Absolutely No Refunds will be given for early departure. 

Additional Guests
  • All regular season rates include 2 guests, additional guests 8 years of age and over $4 each

  • All Sturgis Rally rates include 2 guests, additional guests $15 each.

  • All persons must be declared at check-in. 

Early Departures

All camping and cabin charges are paid at check-in. If you choose to depart early, we do not issue refunds, so please plan your stay accordingly and review our cancellation policies.

Late Arrivals

Our office closes at 8:00 p.m. Mountain Time. We strongly encourage you to schedule your travel day so you arrive in plenty of time to get settled in before it gets dark. We do not allow late arrivals as it is disrupting to our other guests and it can be difficult finding your way around in the mountains after dark.

Pets

Quiet, well behaved pets are welcome. You are responsible for your pet and its behavior. If your pet becomes a nuisance, or displays aggressive behavior, you will be asked to take them to a kennel or leave. No refund will be issued.

Fire Rings

​If a fire ring is moved and a new spot burned, your card will be billed $200 for yard repair. If you need a fire ring moved for easier entry or exit from your site please contact park staff.

Please Note:

 

  • This property is privately owned and operated. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone up to and including removal from the property without refund.

  • Guests will be held responsible for their own actions resulting in damage or vandalism to the property or facilities

  • We are not responsible for accident or injury to guests or any loss of valuables, property or money
