If submitting by fax or email, the reservation is NOT guaranteed until full payment is received.  Full Payment means reservations fees AND deposits are collected at the time of reservation to finalize your booking.

Your documentation will be held until the end of the business day it was received awaiting payment information but your reservation is not confirmed until we have your payment information along with the completed forms.   (Meaning if another reservation form with payment comes in while we are awaiting your payment, the reservation with payment will receive the booking).


We accept cash, check or credit cards (Visa, Master Card, American Express or Discover).  Reservations sent in by email or fax must be completed by a credit card payment by the end of the business day (4:30pm).  As long as the facility is left 'clean & orderly', your deposit will be refunded  back to your credit card.  Once your refund is processed you will receive an email receipt for your records.  The card company has 3-5 business days to post to actually post the refund to your account.  If paid by cash or check, you will be refunded by a mailed check.  It can take up to 45 business days to receive your deposit refund in the form of a check by postal mail.  


Reservations are taken during the calendar year for that calendar year only.  The following calendar year reservations can not be taken until the first business day in January of that year.  


Facility Reservations are accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
