What Credit Cards do you accept?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. We also accept cash.
How do I go about reserving a Motor home, Van or Trailer?
After you decide when you want to take your trip, give us a call. We require a $500.00 deposit on Motor Homes and Vans and a $250.00 deposit on Travel Trailers. Once the RV is booked and you come in to pick it up, the $500.00 or $250.00 deposit becomes a damage deposit.
How does insurance work?
If you are renting a Motor home or Van and you are a Minnesota resident and insured you are automatically covered by Minnesota Law. If you are renting a Travel Trailer, we would need to know from your Insurance Company if the vehicle towing the trailer is insured and that your Insurance will cover the physical damage to our trailer. Some of your bigger and well known insurance companies will. However we will need this in writing.
Is there any items we should plan to take with us when we go RVing?

Is there anything else we should know before we go RVing?
It’s a great idea to plan and shop for your meals before leaving home. Try not to purchase and pack more than you’ll need – eliminating bringing home unused ingredients. Be sure to pick up plenty of bottled water and juice boxes. To make things smooth and easy consider these useful ideas:
Measure dry goods for each meal, pack in zip-loc bags, and label.
Chop vegetables (onions, peppers, carrots, etc.) and pack in zip-locs.
Prepare snacks (veggie sticks, trail mix, energy bars, etc.) and pack in zip-locs.
Resealable boxes of broth (beef, chicken) store well and come in very handy.
Pre-cook noodles, rice, etc. for quick reheating at the campsite.
Block ice lasts longer in your cooler than cubes.
Here’s a handy checklist of Cooking supplies to make sure you don’t forget a thing.

zip-loc freezer bags in several sizes
disposable plates/bowls/hot-cold cups/flatware
