NOTE: Based on the information we have received from you about your camping equipment and vehicle, we will put you in a site that will be a good fit for you. In the event your unit does not fit in your site when you arrive, we will always try to relocate you to an adequate site. However, if you move to a site for less money we will not refund the difference. If you move to a site that is more money we will charge you the difference.
