For the summer holiday weekends (Memorial, Fourth and Labor Day) do you require a minimum amount of nights to reserve?

Do you increase your rates for these weekends?

If you require a minimum amount of nights, do guests have an issue with this?


We've always required a 3-night stay and a deposit for all three nights in advance from our guests. Most do not have an issue since they want to camp for the three nights but lately we've been getting some people that can't understand why they have to stay three nights.

We require a min of 3 nights on holidays, however we are somewhat flexible. Often we have people that just need the friday or the Sunday, this leave an opportunity for a two day stay for someone else. I will not take a reservation for a saturday night stay on a holiday weekend.

Tell them they don't have to stay 3 nights, but they do have to pay for all 3 nights because they're keeping you from renting it to someone who wants to stay all 3 days. :)

We do give them the option of just staying for the two nights they want and still charge for the third but some still have issues with that charge.

We sometimes tell people that we have to charge them for three days, but if we are able to book the night(s) they aren't using we will refund those days. We are on a major highway, so can often fill up a sitenight here and there.
