You are welcome to have visitors during your stay. We do charge for day visitors.The visitor fee is $10/person/day, which includes the use of our Pool Facilities. All vehicles need to acquire a vehicle pass ($5.00) and park in the car parking lot.

9. How many people are included with my campsite?

Your base campsite fee includes 2 people. For each additional person added to the site (ages 2+) it is $10/person/night.



10. Can we set up an extra tent on our site?

We charge per sleeping unit not per site. If you are bringing in more than one family setting up more than one camping unit, we do charge per camping unit.  (One family is considered two adults and children under the age of 18 still living at home.) If you are bringing in two families, you will be better off renting two sites. You will get twice the room for the same fee. The only exception to this rule is if there is only one family, as listed above, and the children would like to sleep in their own tent; we do not charge an additional fee for the extra camping unit.  Please inform our staff at check-in time if you are setting up an additional camping unit. You will need to acquire an additional tag for your extra camping unit.

We do not allow early check ins or late check outs. Kamp Dels is a very busy place with many families coming and going every day. We need time in between to mow, trim mow, clean up garbage, empty ash pits, and prepare your site for the next guests. Your wristbands will expire at 2pm on check out day and we do not issue wristbands until check in time.

Wi-Fi is accessible on 99% of the campground. Our internet is great for surfing the web, checking emails, and uploading pictures. Video streaming services use a lot of data and can be difficult to load during peak times. Though streaming services will work at times, we recommend bringing DVD players if you want to watch movies. We do have Cable TV (with over 50+ channels) available at ALL times at NO additional charge. Just bring your own coax cable to hook up!

The site must be returned back to original condition.

One vehicle is included in your stay. We only allow ONE vehicle to be parked at each site.

We suggest bringing the least number of vehicles possible.

We are a resort that caters to young families, and therefore our quiet hours are set to make most of these families happy.  Our quiet hours are strictly enforced from 11pm to 7am.  If you feel these quiet hours begin too early, or are too strict, we recommend not staying with us, and finding another resort to stay at.  There are no exceptions, and no refunds if evicted.

We do have a No Show Fee of $100.00 if you do not show up for your scheduled arrival day. A 24 hour notice is required


23. What are the Pool temps?

We have four pools. Three of the pools are set to 82 degrees. Tykes Typhoon has so much water squirting everywhere, the water tends to match the temperature of the air.  It's warm on warm days, cool on cool days.



24. Why do you have minimum length stay requirements that are different for each site?

There is always a 2-night minimum to reserve any site.  However, we do set longer weekend minimum stay requirement for our premium sites, and during our busiest times.
