No refunds will be given for Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend reservations. Reservations for these dates may not be transferred to other dates.
Refunds will be given for reservations of less than a week that are cancelled 7 days or more before the first night. A fee equal to the amount of the last night of the reservation will be charged.
A fee of $25 will be charged for more than 3 changes to a reservation. (per site, if more than 1 site is reserved)
A Hermit Island reservation may only be booked, changed, or cancelled through the reservation desk by the camper who made the reservation. Changing the name/family registered to a site is not permitted during the camping season. For a site to be booked by another customer, it must first be cancelled by the person who made the original reservation. No site may be transferred from one camper directly to another.
