Policies and Procedures
Check-In Time 2:00 P.M.
Check-Out Time 11:00 A.M.
Reservations, Deposits, Cancellations and Changes
These policies are designed to be fair to our customers and take care of our business and staff. Since we are located off major roadways and have little traffic past the resort, we rely on reservations made in advance. Once you make a reservation, your accommodation and/or guide is removed from the market and we decline all other requests. We aim to have a policy that completely protects you, our business & staff.
A deposit of $75 is required to reserve Cabins 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. The Penthouse, Riverhouse and Small Lodge require $150.00 deposit, and Large Lodge requires $250. All deposits are to be paid by credit card, check or cash and are required to guarantee all reservations. The deposit will be credited back on your bill at departure. If using a credit card, the appropriate deposit will be charged immediately. With any cancellation/changes, the deposit may be forfeited. The deposit will cover the cancellation fee unless the reservation falls within the same period specified below. Our policy applies to all reservations even in the event of inclement weather and/or early departure.
Pets are allowed on the resort property and campgrounds subject to our pet policy.

Gift certificates for the average cost of a meal are provided for restaurant meals (guests must pay for any amounts over the gift certificates). No refunds on unused portions of your vacation package. Fishing licenses, trout permits, rods & reels not included except where noted.
Catch & Release
We strongly support the Catch & Release Program and are passionate about preserving the fishing industry for everyone to enjoy, now and in the future. We ask that all trophy trout (24″ or larger) caught by our guests are treated with care and released after weighing in and obtaining photographs. Trophy release pins and printed certificates will be provided complimentary to verify your catch.
Guests Bringing Boats and Motors
Guests may bring their own motors if they wish. For safety reasons we recommend a 15-hp maximum. Boats must be parked in designated areas. This section of the White River is rocky and can be hazardous to boats and motors. Jon boats specially designed for this area are supplied with your accommodations. Guests using our launch ramp must pay the required fees. A free public launch ramp is available one mile upriver at Wildcat Shoals.
Roll-away beds, baby cribs and high chairs will gladly be placed in your cabin prior to your arrival (subject to availability). There is a one-time use fee of $15 for the roll-away beds and $5 each for baby cribs and high chairs.
We have rod/reel rentals for $10.00 a day for spin cast fishing and $25.00 a day for Fly rods. We recommend that you bring your own if you have a medium weight rod. Although we have a shop on the premises for all your bait & tackle needs, we do not have waders available for rental. You will need to bring your own if you plan to wade fish.
There is a $10 charge for day visitors. Each visitor must register at the office.
Sorry, no pets over 40 pounds are allowed on the Resort Grounds. However, bigger pets are allowed at the campground.
There is a$75 non-refundable pet deposit for lodging at the Resort. The campground does not have the pet deposit, however, there is a $5.00/per pet/per day charge (pets are treated as an extra guest and charged accordingly).

Our check-in time is 2 p.m. If you intend to arrive before 2 p.m., please notify our office, as we will make every effort to have your cabin available for you but cannot guarantee its availability until 2 p.m. If you plan on arriving after 7 p.m., please notify us for late night check-in procedures.
Check-out time is 11 a.m. Due to staffing and the large demand for cabins, extending check-out times has become increasingly difficult. If possible, we will gladly accommodate late check-outs with pre-authorization, availability and an additional charge. Otherwise, we respectfully request that guests honor our check-out time to minimize hardship on the staff and the next guest arriving.
You are responsible for leaving your accommodation in the same condition (with normal usage) as it was found when you arrived. The registered guest will be held responsible for any and all damages found during and after your departure. Should we find any unusual damage after your departure, an itemized invoice will be sent and your credit card will be charged appropriately.
Quiet Hours / Noise Ordinance
Due to our intimate setting, especially at the campground area, we ask that all volume levels for stereos, TVs etc. be at a non-offensive level. Quiet hours are from 10 PM to 8 AM. We strive to keep nature and seclusion a top priority.
