Why I'm I Charged a Reservation Fee?
A reservation fee is a fee to recover staff time for booking a reservation and to cover merchant credit card charges. Instead of having many names for this fee we settled on Reservation Fee. You will see this fee applied for online bookings and mobile payment bookings and if you call in and book over the phone. Fees vary in price depending on the booking platform.
Does it cost to make a change to a reservation?
A non-refundable reservation fee of $21.50 shall be charged for group reservations, and $11.00 for individual reservations at time of reservation when calling. The first change to all reservations is complimentary (except for front end shortening, see below), so long as the change is made at least 15 days before the first day of the reservation for facilities and group use, and at least 7 days before the first day of the reservation for camping, before incurring a $15.00 fee for each additional change. A maximum of three changes per reservation allowed. Beach parks only: Changes to the front end of a reservation to shorten the stay will be imposed a $10 per day charge for each day shortened, plus a $15 change fee.
