  • How do I make an Individual Reservation?
    Select your arrival date Select your departure date Select the number of adults, children and pets Select Unit Type - There are 2 to choose from; Campsites and Deluxe Sites. Campsites are what we have provided for almost 40 years - a space for you to set up your own gear for your visit. Starting in 2023, we are providing an alternative for those visitors that either don't have space in their vehicle (i.e. UTV's) or anyone who would rather leave the gear at home and stay in a site already set up for them. Each of the 6 Soda Springs sites include a large 167 sq ft, 3 season tent, 2 comfy beds that can be pushed together, a sofa/bunkbed and two side tables with lamps. These Soda Springs sites will allow a second vehicle to accomodate the UTV visitor. Number of Vehicles =1 (FYI, our system is designed for each Camp Site reservation to accomodate 1 vehicle ONLY. If you request more than one vehicle, the system will return zero results) Click the green Search Availability button The available categories of sites for those days will show up on the next screen based on your unit type requested. Campsites include: Unimproved - Dirty Dozen, Slabs, Rocky Point, Pine Camp, Mog/Waterfall and Bridge Camp Improved - East and Upper Main Premium - Riverside and VIP Deluxe includes: Soda Springs​ Click on the category bar of choice and a map of those sites pop's up.
