We rent shelters for the months of April* - October. If a shelter is not reserved/rented the park shelter is first come first serve.  We cannot guarantee the cleanliness of the shelter if not rented.  We strive to keep our shelters clean, but only if rented do we ensure a crew comes in and cleans the shelter before rental. 

*Weather permitting in April. Heavy snow years may delay shelters being open. 

  • We start taking reservations for the next season in November.
  • Reservations are on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Payment is required at time of reservation.
