Holidays: We reserve all our park amenities for our registered guest for Holiday weekends and do not allow Day Use Passes for holiday weekends. These include Memorial Day Weekend (May 24-27), Independence Day Weekend (June 30 – July 4) and Labor Day Weekend (Sept 1 – 4 ).  Please contact our Registration Office for exact dates.

Day Use vs Park Guest: Each park guest is required to pay for using the facilities at Yogi on the Lake. Guest renting a site in the park (Campsite or Cabin) are charged per person for each night of the reservation. Day Use guest pays the Day Use price (listed above) and must leave the park by 10 pm. If you have a guest who would like to visit and spend the night, it is less expensive for you to include them in your reservation versus paying the Day Use fee. NOTE: The maximum number of guest you can add to your reservation is based on the occupancy or the campsite or cabin.

Example, You have a campsite for Friday and Saturday nights. Your son has a friend wanting to spend Saturday and Saturday night. Since he is spending the night then you would have to get a Day Use pass for Sunday. You can pay the Day Use fee of $20/day which equals $40. If you put his friend on your reservation the per person charge is $7 per day (must be for each night of the reservation) or $14. You will be saving $16.

Parking: Day guests parking is located at the entrance to the park.

Armbands: Once you register you will receive an armband for each paid Day guests. These armbands allow you access to the park and it’s amenities and must be worn at all times while on the property.

Pets: Day guests are not allowed to bring pets (dogs, cats, etc) with them to the park.

Have a safe and happy day at Yogi on the Lake!!

Day-Use visitors are guests who do not have RV/Tent or Cabin Reservations but would like to come and enjoy our facilities for the day. The best days to do this are Sunday – Thursday when the least number of Registered Guests are present. Yogi loves to have all of his friends join him on days that are convenient to them but there are times when our numbers will meet our capacity for our facilities and no others will be allowed to join for safety reasons.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope that you’ll come to see us real soon.
