Late Policy:
Check-in time for all sites is 3 pm on the day of your reservation however exceptions are easily made if you call us ahead of time to see if you can check in early as the staff requires time to prep the site for your arrival. If you will be arriving after 6 pm please give us a call and we will hold your site as long as we know your still planning on coming.

Site Assignment/locked site:
While few private campsites offer the ability for a customer to select their campsite we are pleased to support the customer decision of site choice.  From time to time site reassignments occur without notice before a customer arrives. In the event the automated system moves a customer their new system will be equal or upgraded in type. If a customer decided to lock their site when making the reservation their site cannot be reassigned and the customer will arrive to the site they chose at the time of reservation. The 1000 Islands Campground reserves the right to reassign sites unlocked sites but in cases where a maintenance issue exists customers who have chosen a lock site will be moved. 

If for unforeseen circumstances the campground closes due to an emergency or disaster, the campground will make every effort to notify you. In these cases, all fees will be refunded as soon as possible.

Inclement Weather:
In cases of inclement weather, the campground remains open, but you choose to leave after check-in, no refunds will be issued.

Recreational Fires must be contained in a fire pit, ring, or fireplace that is no more than 3 feet round and 2 feet high. Fire rings may not be moved without permission of Campground otherwise a $50 fee will be added to the reservation to repair the site. Fires cannot be directly next to a camper or under an awning or shelter. 1000 Island Campground staff will be periodically patrolling the camping areas and have the authority to make campers extinguish a fire if is too big or unsafe.
