Reservations
Lawson's Landing camping has been primarily first come, first served, but reservations are now recommended. 



Reservations are made online only and can be made at any time up to 60 days ahead. Please have your name, address, telephone number, and vehicle license numbers handy as well as your credit card. Reservations are nonrefundable but may be transferred to a future date if cancelled at least 72 hours prior to the scheduled arrival date. Notifications to transfer reservations may be made by calling (707) 878-2443 or emailing lawsonslanding@gmail.com . Transferred reservations must be used within 6 months of the original scheduled arrival date. 



The reservation system likes Internet Explorer best and needs to have pop-ups allowed. It does not yet work with touch-based operating systems like the iPhone or iPad. The new reservation system allows you to choose your own site, but choose wisely as switching isn't allowed. Group campers: The new system allows for reservations to be made one at a time only. One person will have to make multiple reservations or all the parties will need to make their own reservations. A way to book groups is forthcoming.



Hours
Overnight campers need to have a site assigned to them. Campers entering after the entry gate has closed for the night will need to take an unoccupied campsite for the night and check in at the gate the following morning. At that time the gate attendant will assign a site for the remainder of your stay. Site availability is dependent upon existing reservations. Campers with reservations may enter and take their chosen sites. Entry booth staffing hours are:

Monday     7:00 AM to 6:00 PM 
Tuesday 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM 
Wednesday                 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM 
Thursday  7:00 AM to 9:00 PM 
Friday  6:00 AM to 11:00 PM 
Saturday  6:00 AM to 10:00 PM 
Sunday  6:00 AM to 6:00 PM 

No entry after 11:00 PM for camping, 6:00 PM for Day Use.

Please be respectful of your neighbors when entering at night.

Day use may still enter at 6:00 AM by use of the envelopes on the gate.

Check-in time for campsites is between 1:00 PM and 11:00 PM and checkout is noon.
