Reservation/Cancellation/Refund Policy

To provide for better management and visitor satisfaction Beaver County has implemented a policy for Reservations, Cancellations and Refunds.

The policy provides restrictions on over-booking and last minute cancellations resulting in more sites being available for  other campers. The policy also ensures that the reservation holder is responsible for the actions of all-party members. Refunds will not be given for an eviction, vacating a campsite early, or for inclement weather. 

The policy is based on practices which have been used in the past, and is based mainly on the refund policy established for Alberta Provincial Parks campgrounds.
