What time can I check in? What time is check out?
Our check-in and check-out times are designed to assure that all of our guests’ expectations are met upon arrival. Therefore, it is very important that all of our guests abide by these times.
Check-in time for all RV campsites is 1 p.m. Should you arrive prior to 1 p.m. your site may not be ready.
Check-out time on the day of your departure is 12 p.m. (noon). Any guests who do not check out and depart from their site will be charged an additional night’s stay. If another guest is due into that site the RV may have to be towed at the owner’s expense. In some instances an early check-in or late check-out may be available. Please check with the office to see if these are available, as there may be other guests arriving to or departing from your site. An early check-in or late departure MUST have management approval.
How late can I check in?
Our office closes at 10pm. After the office is closed, we will leave a packet in the Late Arrival bin located by the office door. This will include your paperwork site assignments. Simply pick up the packet with your last name, park on your site, and come register in the morning! We are completely gated so it is important you let us know you are arriving past office hours so that we can provide you a gate code. We also ask that you not arrive in the middle of the night as a courtesy to your site neighbors trying to sleep.
How do I schedule a late check out?
Late check outs are allowed based upon availability. If a late check out is wanted, you must come to the front office on the day of your departure to check for availability and schedule the late check out, if available.
Do I get a refund for leaving early?
We do not give refunds for unused portions of your stay.
Will my reservation request guarantee a specific RV campsite?
A confirmed reservation guarantees an RV campsite for the dates specified at the time your reservation is made, but DOES NOT guarantee a specific campsite.
Can I request a specific site number?
You are making a reservation for a specific site type (Standard, Deluxe, Premium, & Premium River). We will be glad to accept any site requests, but we cannot guarantee you will receive your desired site. We work very hard to please you based upon availability. However, we reserve the right to change your site number at any time, for any reason and sometimes things happen where we have to shuffle things around.
Why don’t you confirm specific campsites?
We cannot guarantee site numbers simply because we need to retain the ability to move reservations around in order to fill to capacity, while still trying to meet EVERYONE'S requests. Due to the volume of reservations and different lengths of stays, this policy enables us to meet a higher rate of satisfaction with the majority guests than if specific RV campsites were guaranteed in advance.
When will I know my site number?
You will receive your site number upon arrival.
How are sites chosen my management?
So that sites are assigned as fairly as possible - by a first reserve- first serve basis.
Can multiple RVs/ group be placed by each other?
Please inform the office at time of reservation if you are camping with a group and we will make every effort to keep your group together. Please keep in mind, Eastpointe RV Resort does not hold sites for anyone or other group members. Please inform all friends or family members to book at the same time! If two members book one day and another family member waits a few days later to book—the one who waited later is not going to be by the other two who booked within the same time period. We cannot hold a site for them even if we knowing they are in your group.
Do you allow tent camping?
As we are an RV Park, we do not allow tent camping.
What do you consider an RV?
Our definition of an RV (Recreational Vehicle) is a camping unit designed for road travel that is equipped with factory installed beds and at least two land-to-vehicle service connections (electric, water, or sewer) with electric being one of the two. For example, a travel trailer, fifth wheel, RV motor home, motor coach, custom private bus, folding camper/pop-up, truck (pickup) camper and camper van are considered to be an RV.
A mini-van is not considered a camper van unless it meets the above criteria. In addition, we do not allow boats with cabins and hookups, to be used as RVs.
My RV Is older. Can I still bring it?

CANCELLATION POLICY/ CHANGING A RESERVATION
What is your cancellation policy?
You may cancel your campsite reservation up to 14 days prior to arrival to receive a refund of your deposit less a $25 fee/5% (whichever is greater). Cancellations made within the 14 day policy will forfeit their full deposit and no rain-checks. This policy is openly disclosed and MUST be agreed to before you make a reservation. If you do not arrive and have not cancelled your reservation or informed us of a next day arrival by phone, you will be charged the full amount of your reservation and your reservation will then be cancelled. No exceptions will be made to this cancellation policy. No refunds or credits for early departure. We understand this is a financial commitment, so we encourage campers to make reservations only if they intend to arrive regardless of weather conditions.
What is policy on reservation changes?
Reservations may be altered if done 14 days prior to arrival date. Keep in mind-- Businesses in every industry are charged varying percentages per credit card “swipe”. We take care of your first swipe fees when you make a reservation. However, all further change; reduction, changing site types, or cancellation of a reservation you make the swipe fees will be passed on to you. If your current reservation qualifies you for special rates due to length of stay, your reservation change might move you to a different rate schedule. Please be aware that date changes may result in price changes. Example: if you arranged a 7 day stay on our water front row at the weekly rate and changed your stay to a 3 day stay you will lose the weekly rate and be required to pay a daily rate.
Why do you have a 14 day cancellation policy?
A seasonal business such as ours is significantly affected by cancellations; therefore, we adhere to a strict cancellation policy that we believe helps ensure our ability to operate the resort at our high standards. As with any business, cancellations are unfortunate for the guest as well as the campground, so we have designed our policies to be as fair as possible to both. Your cancellation affects not only the campground but also affects people who have been turned away do to the unavailability of your site you reserved.
What if the weather is bad or an emergency happens and I want/have to cancel?
We cannot be held responsible for weather, illness, work schedules or other matters affecting our guests and therefore must enforce the cancellation policy regardless of circumstances. Camping is an outdoor experience. We are not responsible for the inconveniences of nature and the cancellation policy still applies.
What is your pet policy?
We’re happy to host your furry family members! In fact, we think they’ll love our resort (especially the Bark Park next door). Pets must be leashed at all times while at our RV resort, cleaned up after and never be left alone at your site, in your RV or any other area of the park. Proof of rabies vaccination should be provided upon request. Pets should be kept quiet and not disturb other guests. A $35 clean-up fee will be applied to your account if you fail to clean up after your pet. Please see our Pet Policy under our Rules and Regulations for complete details.
