Please note: Families may book only one facility per family during our in-season; with a maximum of seven nights per stay, minimum two nights (holiday weekends minimum stay three nights).
All of the cottages, chalets and efficiencies are well-equipped facilities with all the amenities of a modern home. Every location has a water view. Each unit has a telephone, TV and microwave oven and are completely furnished with pots & pans, dishes, flatware, utensils, a coffee maker, toaster, etc. A crib and highchair are also provided (extra cribs are not available). Linens and bath towels for the standard number of four occupants are provided, as is toilet tissue. Additional towels are available at the Recreation Hall upon checking in. Toiletries, including hand soap, are not provided. Facilities are not air conditioned.
The air-conditioned Recreation Hall (where you check in) is the gathering place for all activities and our information center. It is the ideal place for an off-season meeting — we can accommodate groups of 25-30. We have a seasonal snack bar that offers a limited menu. There's also a beer & wine bar, video games, table tennis and a pool table.
Reservations are normally required for our RV sites. Improved campsites are on hard stands with full hook-ups adjacent to each site. The bath house is available for unimproved RV camping sites within easy walking distance of all sites. At the present time there is no dump station available, but arrangements can be made for dumping.You must check in upon arrival.
We have four designated areas for tent sites, which are available seasonally when the bathhouse facilities are open. Reservations are not required; space is rented on a first-come, first-served basis. Designated areas will be shown to you on a map. You must register and pay upon arrival. Tent sites must be cleared by 12:00 p.m. on the day of checkout.
There are three picnic areas available for group picnics. Reservations include exclusive use of the picnic area, a family size grill and up to 10 picnic tables (ask the reservation clerk for rates). Keg beer is available for group functions (a one-week notice is required). When picnic areas are not reserved for group functions they can be used on a first-come, first-served basis by authorized personnel at no charge.
As an added convenience, you can rent the following items from the Recreation Hall: lobster cooking pots, folding cots, DVD players, fishing rods/reels, canopies, outdoor propane cookers, super coolers and mobile gas grills.
A coin-operated laundromat facility, located in Building #6, is open to our guests.
