Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are Park Model trailers allowed at Grand Lake Park?
A: Park Model trailers are welcome at Grand Lake Park. All equipment, including RV’s, Park Models or otherwise, brought into the Park, is done so completely at the Owner’s Risk. We accept no responsibility for vandalism or damage of any kind whatsoever, which may occur to your property/vehicle(s) while on our site, and just like every other park, patrons are required to sign a waiver upon entering the Park. Some areas of the Park are prone to spring-time flooding, and this should be kept in mind if you are planning to over-winter your RV at our site. We will be happy to indicate where past flooding has been known to occur, and you may choose your site accordingly, recognizing that some risk always exists. In areas known to flood frequently, you have to be on '4 wheels' and mobile to remove your RV from that area at summer’s end. Don’t worry, if you want the same site next year, we will be happy to reserve it just for you, with your deposit at season’s end. All seasonal RV site reservations are required to be paid in full by April 1st of each year. Ask about our convenient monthly payment plan.
