& A

Please make sure to read over all the frequently asked questions before contacting the Klahanie Office. 

 

  • Q. Where can I check availability for the dates I want?
Our new booking system allows campers to check what sites are available for the dates they want to stay.  This is updated and actualized when new reservations are made, so there's always certainty that you'll see everything that's open for booking.  If the site you would like does not show up when making a reservation, this means it has been previously reserved.

 

  • Q. Can I invite friends and family to visit us for the day?

Yes! We love to have the family or friends over for some fun! However, due to insurance and safety purposes, it’s required that everybody (and every vehicle) in the park is registered at the office.

Day passes are available for purchase and they can stay from 7:00am - 10:00pm. Unregistered trespassers will have to pay a fee of $35.00 (+tax) and may also be subject to eviction from the park.
