Osceola County Parks Group Camping Procedure
The Osceola County Parks has an established Group Camping procedure

1.)  A group camping form will be filled out when requesting more than 2 additional sites in one person’s name at either park.  2.)  Secure this group camping with a deposit that can be refunded of $30.00 after sites are vacated. 
3.)  Group camping requires a minimum stay of 2 nights per site.
4.)  Holiday weekends and lakefront property requires a minimum 3 night stay.
5.)  Two sites can be reserved for group camping per person calling in.  All others in the party will either have to call in to reserve their site or fill out a form with the other party’s information prior to confirmation of the reservation.  These forms can be found under the parks home page. 
6.)  We will hold the sites for two weeks for others to call in or the form to be received.  Monies will have to be paid up front with the reservation.
7.)  If information is not received within two weeks, the sites will be released for others to rent.  If the form is received with incorrect information, a phone call will be placed to the individual filling out the form for updated information, otherwise the sites can be released for others to rent.

Pet Cleanup Deposit

The Osceola County Parks has put into place a pet cleanup deposit of $25.00 for individuals that do not clean up after their pets.  The deposit will be required for individuals who camp and neglect to clean up or take care of pets properly.  The $25.00 deposit can be refunded if you properly care for your pet while camping.
