Wishon Village Policies
Site Assignment Policy:
Due to an updated reservation system and ongoing COVID-19 Requirements, site requests will no longer be an option, nor should they be expected.
Please let us know in the Comments Box of the Reservation if you are with another party so we can attempt to get your party as close to each other as possible.
Three days prior to your arrival date, a final site specific confirmation will be sent to the email address on file. Please know that we reserve the right to move any reservation as we deem necessary, prior to your arrival. As always, per Forest Service, all arriving guests must stop by the store to check-in and confirm the site number, BEFORE occupying any site.
Arrivals and Departures
Check-in time is at 2:00 pm. All early arrivals must have PRIOR approval before entering a site. All guests must check-in at the store before occupying a site.
A list of guests, their sites, and a map will be posted each night at the store. Please stop and verify your site as we cannot absolutely guarantee specific site requests.
Upon arriving at your site, it is expected that all guests arriving late, especially once Quiet Hours are in effect, set up in a quiet manner so as not to disturb their neighboring guests. Please keep all voices and activity to a minimum. All guests arriving late are expected to check-in at the store the following morning by 9:00 am.
Check out time is 12:00 pm, noon, no exceptions. We appreciate your help so we can prepare the site for the next guest.
Please leave the site as you found it. Excess trash, firewood, dog mess, etc. will not be tolerated.
Seasonal reservations – one month deposit is required. All other reservations – payment in full at the time of booking. Please note that all weekends require a 2-night minimum payment and all holiday weekends require a 3-night minimum payment, even if you are only staying for part of the weekend.
Standard rates include 4 people and 2 vehicles per night. Additional people, vehicles, and pets will be charged accordingly. Please check the Rates Page for more details. Vehicles are all autos and boats not including the RV. Boats will not be charged as additional vehicles if docking space has been purchased.
Each RV and Tent Site has a maximum occupancy of 6 people. The purchase of an additional site is required when site occupancy exceeds 6 people. All overnight visitors are to be reported to the office.
Site Assignments Wishon Village has always endeavored to locate each guest in their preferred site, but this convenience cannot be guaranteed and should not be expected in every circumstance. Ultimately, we reserve the right to assign all sites as we deem appropriate and, therefore, no site will be guaranteed until guest arrival.
SUBLETTING (Illegal) and Exchanging Sites:
Current site and rental occupants shall not sublease or exchange their site, RV, or reservation with any other party for ANY reason. The existing occupant must cancel their current reservation and vacate the site or rental to allow for a new guest to make a reservation of their own. Once a site or rental has opened up, it may be booked at any time by anyone, in person, over the phone or online. There is no guarantee that any interested party of the current occupant will receive the vacated site.
Children and Guests:
The individual who signed the form at check-in will be responsible for the actions and safety of their children and guests. We expect all parents and guardians to understand and inform their children of all policies that pertain to them.
