Cabin Cancellation Policy
Cancellations or changes to existing reservations must be made by contacting the park directly. Cancellations or changes cannot be made online or via voicemail.
Cancellations made more than 10 days prior to the scheduled arrival date will be refunded, less a $10 cancellation fee. Note that the $5.00 reservation fee is non-refundable. (Ex. If arrival date is the 21st and cancel on 10th, there will be a $10 cancellation fee charged.)
Cancellations made within 10 days of scheduled arrival date will forfeit the full deposit, including the $5.00 non-refundable reservation fee. (Ex. If arrival date is the 21st and cancel on the 11th, the full deposit will be forfeited.)
Customers may cancel their reservation and rebook a similar reservation without a cancellation fee by contacting the park and completing the cancel/rebook prior to 10 days before the scheduled arrival date.
If this reservation is part of a contracted group, then the contract's cancellation policies supersede the above individual cancellation policies.
If payment is made using a gift card, please retain this gift card in case you cancel your reservation. Any refunds must be made to the original gift card.
Any employee found to have made a reservation in advance of the 30 days eligibility dates to receive discounts, and then cancelling and rebooking that reservation in order to get the discount will not be able to rebook the reservation for any of the dates of the original reservation with the intent to receive the discounted rate. The employee will have to pay the regular rate for any dates of the original reservation, and the discount may only apply to any dates that were reserved in accordance to policy that were not within the original dates of the reservation.
Pet Cabin Policy
A limited number of cabins are available at each park for guests who travel with their pets. Guests must sign a Pet Policy Liability Form (CN-1181) upon check-in agreeing to abide by TN State Parks pet policy set forth and there is a $20 charge per night per pet that will be assessed at check-in.
Pets are strictly prohibited inside cabins unless they are specifically designated as a pet-friendly cabin and all additional pet charges are paid. Due to allergy issues, pets may not be kept on porches or decks of non-pet cabins.
If pets are kept at non-pet cabins, a minimum penalty of $100.00, plus all applicable nightly pet fees will be assessed. Additional charges for damages may also be assessed at the discretion of management.
Cabin No-Show Policy
If a party with a reserved cabin fails to check in by 10:00am the morning after the scheduled arrival date, the remainder of the reservation will be cancelled and the cabin will be made available to other guests.
Parties that do not intend to check in on the first day of their reservation must make arrangements to pay for the entire reservation on or before the scheduled arrival date. To do so, contact the park directly. This will ensure that your reservation will not be automatically cancelled.
Group Reservation & Cancellation Policies
Groups may reserve multiple cabins up to 5 years in advance. Group reservations must be made by contacting the park directly.
The rental of 4 or more cabins constitutes a group reservation. Groups that have 4 or more cabins reserved must cancel 45 days prior to the scheduled arrival date to receive a full refund (less the non-refundable reservation and cancellation fees per cabin). For more information on group cabin reservations or cancellations, please contact the park directly.
