Our shuttle policy has changed due to COVID-19. We now offer private vehicle shuttles. This means that you will drive your personal vehicle to the put-in spot, from there you will pass the keys to one of our experienced drivers and we will move your vehicle for you. Your vehicle will be waiting on you upon your arrival at the end of your float. We do recommend that you bring a spare set of keys with you, however, it is no problem at all if you only have one set of keys. The details of where the keys will be left will be discussed at the office while you are signing in. 

*Please note- if you have an RV or a larger vehicle please contact us to guarantee that it will be moved
