Lottery for Seasonal Camping
The Seasonal Campers Lottery will be held on the 3rd Saturday in March, which is March 19th, for all park and marina locations. As a reminder, full payments will need to be made no later than March 13th for customers who have not made the early payment and who are not taking advantage of the 4 payment plan. This will allow our staff the opportunity to update the lots available lists and put them out for customer review several days ahead of the actual lottery.
What to expect the day of the lottery:
The 1st lottery will start at 10am* and the 2nd and 3rd lotteries will begin at 1pm running consecutively until completed. The break between the 1st and 2nd lotteries will allow customers an opportunity to update their list of available lots and visually inspect the lots that have become available as a result of the 1st lottery. This lottery schedule has been successful in a number of our facilities over the last few years. It greatly reduces the stress on the customers in addition to providing an opportunity to make more informed decisions when choosing a lot. Following the lottery, we ask that all customers who are required to relocate be on their newly assigned lot no later than April 1st.
*NOTE: Piedmont Marina/Campground, Clendening Marina/Campground, Leesville, and Kokosing campgrounds lottery will begin at 4pm and will run consecutively until complete.
What is a Seasonal Camper?
A â€œSEASONALâ€ camper is one who maintains a seven (7) month camping permit. A seasonal permit begins April 1st and will end on October 31st.
What is the difference between each lottery?
First Lottery-Existing Seasonal Camper
The first lottery is for the previous yearâ€™s seasonal campers who did not need to complete a lot transfer to be considered a seasonal camper. They will have first option at any available campsites.
Second Lottery-Transfer Lottery
This Lottery is held for anyone who became a seasonal camper the previous year and completed transfer paperwork. Any guest who completed the permit season will be guaranteed the option of a seasonal campsite, but will not be guaranteed the specific site on which the camper may be currently located on.
Third Lottery-New Seasonal Campers
This lottery is for guests wishing to become a new seasonal camper. Tokens will be drawn at random until the seasonal camper limit has been reached.
