Can I check in to my room or cottage early?
Although we try to accommodate your requests for an early check-in, it’s not always possible, depending on how full the lodge or cottages were the night before and how quickly our guests check out in the morning. Our reservation center will be happy to note a request for early check-in on your reservation; however, we cannot guarantee such requests. It’s a good idea to call the lodge the evening before or the morning of your arrival to see if they can give you an idea of how early you can check in.

We’re glad you want to linger at our parks! As long as the lodge is not sold out and we do not need your room, an extra hour for check-out is allowed.

Since you don’t have a waitlist, should I check back every day for a cancellation?
Cancellations do occur; however, they can occur at random and you may have limited success in obtaining the dates and accommodations desired.
