All bookings require a deposit to hold your reservation. A deposit equal to the first night for all rooms reserved will be charged to your credit card upon reserving.

Kelly Place is a popular destination and we are happy to provide great vacations for all of our guests. For this reason, we must strictly adhere to our cancellation policies. If you must cancel, please do so at least ten days prior to arrival to get a refund. There is a $15 processing fee to cancel a reservation ten or more days before arrival. Your reservation is our mutual agreement to hold your lodging for you and make it unavailable to others.
If you cancel less than 10 days before arrival date, you are
financially responsible for one night or 50% of your entire reserved
stay, whichever is larger. On the date of your reserved arrival, you
are fully responsible for your entire booked stay even if you arrive
late, depart early or do not show up. If you must cancel please do so
via telephone or written notice. Email is not sufficient. You must
obtain a confirmation of cancellation by telephone or email from
Kelly Place management to be valid.
We believe that your vacation investment should be covered by travel insurance. The following links take you to a site which will inform you about travel insurance and has provider company reviews and links to purchase on line.
If you decline travel insurance coverage you are accepting financial responsibility for your reservation if you cancel your reservation within the 10-day period or must leave early during your stay. [Top]

You may not make excessive noise (play music, loud talking, etc.) in your campsite or after 10PM. RV style generators can not be run in our campground due to noise amplifying effects of the cliff face and out of respect to others that are camping. If you need power reserve a powered site. Your stay includes breakfast and use of the shower and toilet facilities on site. You are not allowed to collect fire wood on the property and may only burn wood in designated areas.
