    1. Currently, reservations are available through December 31, 2020.
  2. When will I be able to make a reservation for 2021?
    1. The release date for 2021 Reservations has not been determined.   It will likely be late this year.   Please sign-up on our website at Notify Me for News Flash notifications.  We will use News Flash to send out notice of the 2021 reservations.
  3. Can I call in and make a reservation?
    1. Reservations must be made online.  Please use the link on our RV Camping page to make a reservation: https://www.portsanluis.com/2163/RV-Camping    
  4. I cannot find any available camp sites.  Are you able to assist me in finding availability? 
    1. We are unable to advise on availability.  Please use the link on our RV Camping page to make a reservation: https://www.portsanluis.com/2163/RV-Camping    We recommend narrowing your search dates if you're having trouble finding a site for longer stays.   You may also want to search for stays beginning on a Sunday or Monday and departing on Wednesday or Thursday as most weekends appear to be reserved.
  5. Can I search by viewing availability of sites rather than a date-range search?
    1. Our current reservation system does not show availability by site, only by entering dates.   We suggest narrowing your range of dates to increase chances of finding availability.
  6. How will I know if my RV will fit in the space?
    1. Please review the site details here: https://www.portsanluis.com/2257/RV-Campsite-Map
  7. Will you notify me of cancellations?
    1. Regarding cancellations, please use the reservation website to check availability as we do not maintain a waitlist or cancellation interest list. 
  8. Do I have to have a boat to camp at the Trailer Boat Camping sites?
    1. Yes, due to Grant Funding requirements, TB sites always require a registered boat and boat trailer be onsite for the duration of the stay.   Please see more information here: https://www.portsanluis.com/DocumentCenter/View/4221/Trailer-Boat-Camping-Requirements?bidId=
  9. Can I let my friend use my camping reservation since I am unable to go?
