 If you are part of a group of 5 or less, sleeping in one tent, you should purchase a family tent site. Please note, RV sites have no toilet or electric hookups. ***Camping is an option***. You can purchase day passes for Friday or Saturday and enjoy everything except sleeping onsite.  It is very important for us to keep track of the number of  people who will be attending, so please include the “total # in family” in the drop down menu.  If you only plan on camping for one night you must still purchase a full weekend pass.  For further questions please email
