Park Rules


  1.  COVID-19 POLICY:  Reservations made for stays after January 1st, 2022, will be subject to our cancellation policy as written, except where the guest, spouse, and/or minor child(ren) is currently sick with Covid-19. After the declaration of Covid-19 as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization, Covid-19 and extenuating circumstances are no longer unforeseen or unexpected. Should you, the registered guest (or your spouse and/or minor children), become sick with Covid, you must notify Frandy immediately to cancel your reservation. We require confirmation of positive Covid-19 test to process a raincheck.  Please see our cancellation policy for further details.

CANCELLATION POLICY:  If you chose to cancel your reservation, we must receive an emailed request 15-days prior to your scheduled arrival date. A raincheck will be issued as your refund in the amount of your deposit minus a $10 cancellation/processing fee. Rainchecks are good for 12-months from the original reservation arrival date and are nontransferable and not valid over holiday weekends. Once a raincheck is applied, any cancellation or date modification of that raincheck will result in total forfeiture of the raincheck. Any cancellation within 15-days of your arrival date will result in a total forfeiture of your deposit. All reservations must be honored regardless of inclement weather or air quality index. Frandy Park Campground does not, under any circumstance, issue monetary refunds. You will have chosen to forfeit your payment under any OF THE FOLLOWING SITUATIONS:  choose not to fulfill your agreement (read/sign/return Park Policy); are asked to leave; do not give proper 15-day cancellation notification; and/or fail to show up. Your deposit will hold your site for one night’s stay only – if you have not arrived by noon of the following day from your scheduled arrival date or made arrangements with Frandy, your campsite(s) will be released and resold.  Once your reservation is finalized, you are financially responsible for the entire booking – any decrease in the number of days reserved and/or early departure will result in a forfeiture of prepaid nights.

  1. CABLE TV IS NOT OFFERED. WIFI service is only a hotspot and we do not guarantee availability or that all devices will connect to our WIFI.
  2. SITE RATES are based on 6 persons (children under 5 years of age are free) and an 8-person maximum occupancy.  Deluxe site rates are based on a 12-person occupancy (children under 5 years of age are free) with a 16-person maximum occupancy.
  3. CAMPSITES:  One fire ring, and one picnic table is allowed per site.  Please do NOT place personal BBQs and/or fire pits directly on Park picnic tables. If you chose to move your Park provided picnic table, we require you to return them to their original position prior to checkout.  All campsites are specifically marked.  Please do not encroach on your neighbor’s space, campground roads, and/or common areas.  The following are prohibited: outdoor refrigerators, outdoor air conditioning units, outdoor swamp coolers, electrical cords extending outside your assigned site perimeter, pop up toilets, pop up/outdoor showers, and kiddie pools. In order to keep the community safe, our local energy company (Southern California Edison) may need to turn off power during extreme weather or wildfire conditions.  This is called a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS). Power will remain out for as long as extreme and dangerous weather conditions pose a potential fire risk.  In the event a PSPS is enacted, Frandy will not be held financially responsible to refund customer either in part or in total for any los of utility and/or inconvenience.
  4. NAMES of all guests, adults, and children, camping on or visiting your site, must be provided to the campground. By entering into a reservation agreement and/or arrival at Frandy Park Campground, you acknowledge the responsibility to obtain, review and agree to the terms of the Park Policy (Frandy Campground Rules) and any addendum. Our Park Policy is available in print at Frandy’s office and online at Policy is subject to change depending on health and safety guidelines.
  5. CHECK-IN: Check-in time is between 2pm and 11pm for campsites unless other arrangements have been made with the Front Desk. *NO ARRIVALS AFTER 11:00P.M.* If you arrive prior to 2pm and your site is available, you will be subject to at least half-a-day fee (depending on arrival time and availability). If site is not available for early check-in, you will need to park off property until site becomes available. Reserved sites will be held until 12pm the day following your arrival date. If you have not checked in before this time, you are considered a “no show”.  Your site will then be released back to Frandy Campground- thereby forfeiting both your deposit and site. The campsite leader will be required to sign our Campground Site Agreement upon arrival.  As a courtesy, the Campground Site Agreement is emailed upon a reservation being confirmed.  
  6. CHECK-OUT:  Check-out time is 12pm for all campsites. Depending on reservations for incoming guests, you may be able to pre-arrange a late check-out with the Front Desk. If you have not made late check-out arrangements and do not vacate by the check-out time, you will be charged the equivalent of an additional night’s rate per campsite reserved. If our failure to vacate your site interferes with the check-in of another guest, you will be charged the additional night rate(s) in addition to a $100 penalty fee. Early check-out will result in the site(s) being released back to Frandy Campground thereby forfeiting both payment and site.
  7. PAYMENT:  A deposit equal to the first night’s stay on each site reserved is required at time of booking. The balance (remainder due) for your reservation is due at the time of check-in from the leader (the listed) main party of the reservation.
