Property Reservation FAQ’s
Who can rent GSNorcal properties?
Girl Scout members in and out of GSNorCal council, and non-profit groups serving youth.
To qualify as a GSNorCal group and receive GSNorCal rental rates, the group must be comprised of at least 60% current or lifetime GSNorCal members.
All non-profit organizations serving youth must provide proof of liability insurance coverage of up to 1 million dollars and name Girl Scouts of Northern California as an additional insured.
Do I have to rent an entire site?
Smaller groups can plan their own special trips by renting unit areas within the larger site, and service units and large groups may rent entire campsites for their events. Non-Profits serving youth must rent the entire site. We are not able to do partial site rentals to Non-Girl Scout groups.
Do I have to pay a deposit?
Yes, all groups pay a 20% non-refundable reservation deposit at the time of check out. The remaining balance on your reservation is then due 30 days prior to your trip.
Can my group exceed the stated capacities for sites?
No. Day use and overnight capacities at each site are based on several factors, including American Camping Association safety standards, and may not be exceeded.
Where can I find out what the rental fee and availability is for each property?
Each property's webpage includes a link to DoubleKnot, our reservation system, where you can view available dates.
How will I know if my reservation has been accepted?
Online reservations are confirmed at the time of reservation and you will receive an email receipt confirmation after the reservation has been made.
