Terms of Service

I agree, and shall cause my children, invitees and guests, to abide by the Park Rules, including those rules and policies published at http://www.westwardshores.com/faq/, posted at the Premises or otherwise communicated in any manner by Westward Shores management. 

I further understand and agree that Westward Shores does not give credit or refunds due to the discomforts of nature. Westward Shores's refund policy varies, depending on the timing of the cancellation notice in advance of the reservation date, as follows:

Camping Cabins and Cottages: If a reservation is cancelled more than 3 weeks prior to the arrival date we issue a full refund, less a $25 transaction fee; or Camp Credit in the full amount can be elected. For a cancellation of a reservation more than 2 weeks, but less than 3 weeks, prior to the arrival date we issue Camp Credit for 50% of the payment and the balance is forfeited. For a reservation cancelled less than two weeks prior to the arrival date, the full amount of the reservation payment is forfeited to Westward Shores.

Shorepointe Cottage and Timber Lodge: If a reservation is cancelled more than 5 weeks prior to the arrival date we issue a full refund, less a $25 transaction fee; or Camp Credit in the full amount can be elected. For a cancellation of a reservation more than 4 weeks, but less than 5 weeks, prior to the arrival date we issue Camp Credit for 50% of the payment and the balance is forfeited. For a reservation cancelled less than 4 weeks prior to the arrival date, the full amount of the reservation payment is forfeited to Westward Shores.

Campsites: If a reservation is cancelled more than 2 weeks prior to the arrival date we issue a full refund, less a $25 transaction fee; or Camp Credit in the full amount can be elected. For a cancellation of a reservation more than 1 week, but less than 2 weeks, prior to the arrival date we issue Camp Credit for 50% of the payment and the balance is forfeited. For a reservation cancelled less than one week prior to the arrival date, the full amount of the reservation payment is forfeited.

Camp Credit can only be redeemed in the same calendar year as the cancelled reservation and can only be applied toward your site or cabin/lodge rental. For reservations paid with a credit card, cash refunds will be credited to the credit card on file with respect to reservation.

As a participant in a recreation activity, I am responsible for acting within the limits of my ability and heeding all warnings regarding participation in the activity.

As a courtesy, our employees, if so requested, may assist with directing you to your designated campsite.

The Premises are privately owned and THE MANAGEMENT RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE to anyone for any reason except for those prohibited by law. Westward Shores Management reserves the right to require any person or party it deems necessary, to leave the campground based on violations of Park Rules or behavior management deems inappropriate or disturbing to others. I have read this notice and agree to it as well as all Westward Shores Rules and regulations. In addition, I understand that I am responsible for the actions of all persons registered in my party, including any children, and any guests that visit during my stay. On behalf of each person in my party, I grant Westward Shores and its affiliated entities and promotional partners the right to include any photographic, video and other visual portrayals of each person in my party in any medium and for any purpose.
