  • Residents of any other states (MA, RI, etc.) have the option to obtain a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours prior to their visit.

Updated Cancellation Policy for COVID-19

For all 2020 reservations, including already booked and anything that is booked moving forward, we will shorten our cancellation window to 15 days. This means that any reservation (site or building) may cancel up to 15 days prior to your check-in date for a full refund. We will continue to reassess as the season gets closer and we know more about the trajectory of this virus. We have always valued our customers and consider you all to be a part of our extended family so as always, we will continue to address individual issues one-on-one with our customers. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Love to all from the Pond and remember to keep washing your hands!

Quiet Hours

We pride ourselves in offering a safe, family camping experience and will not tolerate late night partying and rude or abusive behavior.
