Vacation cabin reservation policy updated at 4 MWCD parks

June 3, 2011

Guests now will be able to make reservations up to one year in advance for the popular family vacation cabins at four lake parks operated by the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD).

As part of the updated reservation policy approved recently by the MWCD Board of Directors, guests of the family vacation cabins located at Atwood, Pleasant Hill, Seneca and Tappan lake parks can reserve the same cabin and reservation period up to one year in advance prior to checking out.

Previously, cabin guests were not able to make reservations until the first Monday in November for the following year. The change was prompted by guest concerns and comments in recent years, said Scott Barnhart, MWCD’s chief of recreation.

“In comments from guests and in a formal guest survey that was conducted, we learned that guests considered this to be inconvenient and antiquated,” Barnhart said. “We agree that we should accommodate our loyal guests who plan to return by offering them a convenient reservation service.”

Barnhart said the new policy also will prevent some guests from having to arrange time off work and other scheduling hassles to permit them to call or visit a park office to make their reservation.

The family vacation cabins at the four lake parks sleep up to six guests, feature two bedrooms and have their own kitchens and bathrooms. They offer guests an alternative to camping for an overnight stay at an MWCD lake park.

“We already have been contacted by guests who support this change and told us they are very happy to see this updated reservation service,” Barnhart said.

Reservations for the cabins are handled by the individual park offices.
