We hope to provide a place for people to meet one another, to enjoy the outdoors and to relax on vacation. In order to ensure everyone has a a great experience, we ask that each camper follow a few basic guidelines.
Each day, a camp host will be on duty, however there may be times when we have to step out. Please follow these guidelines, even when hosts are not present.
If you have any questions or concerns, call the camp phone at 360-777-3949.
ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES
Your campsite number is assigned when you make your reservation. Please do not change sites unless specifically approved by a camp host. This will prevent confusion for other campers – especially if we have late arrivals.
We are now offering “remote” check-in’s for our guests who wish to have a contactless visit with us. You will receive more information regarding how to check-in remotely prior to your trip.
- 1pm check-in
- 11am check-out
Please leave a clean site for the next campers. Leaving trash behind will result in a cleaning fee. Please take out what you bring in.
There are no refunds within 7 days of a reservation, weather restrictions included. Should you wish to cancel your reservation more than 7 days prior to your reservation start day, there will be a $15 cancellation fee, deducted from the refund.
(As of March 2020) Our team is happy to assist you in rescheduling your trip to a future date that best suits your needs. We will continue to monitor this developing situation, consult with medical experts and follow official recommendations from public health officials and will communicate additional updates as they occur. The safety and health of our guests, team members and community is our top priority. Should you wish to cancel your reservation more than 7 days prior to your reservation, please contact us and we will assist in the cancelation or rescheduling!

MUSIC AND NOISE
As this is a campground designed for meeting each other (at a safe social distance), we encourage our campers to enjoy and play music. We do ask that you consider those around you and play music at reasonable levels.
After 9pm, we ask that music be turned down to levels only audible within your individual campsite, or played at the campfire.
Similarly, we ask that no generators be used after 9pm as it impedes other campers ability to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean.
Swimming in the ocean is not advised on the Long Beach Peninsula, even on the calmest days
- Lifeguards do not patrol the beach.
- The ocean currents are strong and dangerous no matter the time of tide. You cannot swim against these currents.
- Wear a life jacket when playing near the water’s edge.
- Stay away from logs in the surf or wet sand.
- Our average water temperatures range from the mid-40s to the mid-60s. These temperatures can cause hypothermia.
- Do not attempt to rescue someone in the ocean. You will likely become a victim yourself. Call 911 and stay there!
- Never turn your back on the waves. Sneaker waves are powerful waves that come high up on the beach without warning.
- Keep a close eye on your children
Our community fire pit is (currently closed due to safe distance regulations) for any campers. Firewood is available for purchase at the campground.
