Camping Reservations

  • All camping reservations require pre-payment for all of the sites reserved.  Please take care to check your dates.

  • All payments & fees made at time of reservation are 100% non-refundable. No exceptions. Some fees may qualify for a future credit. See our details below.

  • The State of Oregon charges a tourism tax on all private campgrounds, hotels, & motels. The tourism tax applied to Camp Dakota is 5% of the total usage fee. This amount will be added to your user fees.

  • Every time you wish to make a change to an existing reservation, you will be charged a Change Fee of $5 per site changed. This includes date changes, cancellations, and site changes.

Inclement Weather Cancellations


Camp Dakota is located at 2000' elevation. During the months of November thru mid April it is not unusual for us to receive snow. The county road is plowed and sanded on a regular basic when this happens. If you are not pre-pared to drive on snow or icy road conditions, you should plan to visit us during May through October. 

If the NOAA forecast for our specific area is for sustained winds in excess of 46 MPH Category 9 Beaufort Scale we will close the camp and issue a credit towards a future visit.  In the event of this rare occurrence, guests will be notified by phone and email immediately.  

If the the county maintained roadway is covered in deep un-plowed snow, guests will have the option to cancel their reservation and receive a credit towards a future visit.  (Hard packed snow or icy road conditions do not apply.)  Due to our elevation and remote location, guests can expect the possibility of driving on hard packed snow or ice during the months of November thru March.  


Temporary Closures

In the event that Camp Dakota is required to close down temporarily, guests with reservations during that period of closure must agree to accept an in-house credit towards a new reservation at a later date. Events that could occur that may require Camp Dakota to close include, but are not limited to the following: Fire, flood, earthquake, storms, outbreak of contagious illnesses and diseases, general evacuation order, road closure, smoke from fires elsewhere, terrorism, domestic terrorism, act of God, and orders by civil authorities.

This will serve to protect our ability to retain our employees and keep Camp Dakota maintained and ready for guests once we are allowed to reopen.
