Seasonal Camping at Four Seasons at Raystown Lake Camping Resort
April 26, 2013 - December 8, 2013
Seasonal sites are discounted campsites that are available for a designated camping season. You provide the camping equipment, usually a travel trailer, fifth wheel, motor home or pop-up camper. Four Seasons at Raystown Lake provides a spacious campsite with clean filtered water, 30/50 amp electric, municipal sewer, Wi-Fi and digital TV hookups. All of our sites include a picnic table and fire ring. We provide first-class recreational facilities in a gated community. Our activities and theme weekends can be found on the Events Tab. Please call, text or email us if you are interested in a squeaky clean resort with a safe family atmosphere and peace of mind.
What is Seasonal Camping Like?
Seasonal camping at Four Seasons at Raystown Lake is like having a summer vacation home, without the hassles! Seasonal families form friendships with each other that go well beyond our camping resort. Often people get together and keep in touch during the off-season. Seasonal families appreciate that the management and staff at Four Seasons at Raystown Lake is looking out for them and the campground. The management and staff want to ensure a high quality vacation for all.
How much does Seasonal Camping Cost?
All of the approved seasonal sites are $2,600.00, which includes up to six family members. This rate includes all amenities of the resort and utilities, except for electricity usage. Electricity is billed each month. A separate fee of $300.00 is used as a one time security deposit. If we receive your non-refundable $250.00 deposit for the 2014 camping season before September 1, 2013, you are entitled to FREE winter storage. Otherwise, you will incur a storage fee of $250.00 if you do not return in the spring.
How do we pick a Seasonal Site?
We have a selected number of seasonal campsites. The number and selection available depends on how many sites are already reserved and who is returning for the 2013 camping season. If you are considering seasonal camping at Four Seasons at Raystown Lake, we suggest that you visit our camping resort to see all we have to offer and to choose one of the available sites. If all seasonal sites are full, we are happy to put your name on a waiting list. Once you are on a seasonal site, you get first choice for that same site for the following season.
How do we reserve a Seasonal Site?
To reserve a campsite, decide itís what you want to do and give us a call at 814.477.1005. You can also text us at 814.404.6397 or email us. We will help you fill out all of the paperwork. You are required to sign a contract called a Site Agreement for Camping. You must also read and sign the Rules and Regulations. Return the paperwork with a $300.00 security deposit. Once your application has been approved, $300.00 will be put into the security deposit account. The funds do not earn any interest. The deposit will be returned to you no later than 90 days, if you do not renew your year Site Agreement for Camping contract. Any outstanding bills will be deducted from your deposit.
Can We Change Seasonal Sites if we want to?
Yes, if there are other sites we offer as seasonal that are available, the site can moved, even in mid-season. If you want to move to a seasonal site that is already taken, your name will be put on a wait list. Contact the office. Everything has to be put into writing. Verbals do not count.
Can I use my site all year long?
We have another type of site agreement that can be used 365 days each year. This yearly agreement guarantees that you will have amenities* and that the snow will be plowed. We do have a Winter Advisory that asks for you to call 24 hours in advance so that it is safe to enter the campground. This agreement does cost approximately $850.00 extra each year.
*We guarantee that you will have water but you are responsible to keep it turned off if you are not at the campsite and that you will heat tape it to help with freezing.
Where do we get a camper? What kind should we get?
At Four Seasons at Raystown Lake, we offer several options for each individual camping experience. We are the exclusive dealer for park model homes. Park model homes have a different site agreement and yearly fee. Park model homes are built with different specifications than a travel trailer. It is easier to camp in the colder months because each park model home has great insulation.
Camping trailers come in many sizes. Slide-outs help to make the inside of your travel trailer have a lot more space. People can purchase brand new travel trailers or look for a used travel trailer. If you are looking to purchase a used travel trailer, be sure that it is less than ten years old. If your current camper is older than 10 years, please check with management for consideration. The age is determined from the vehicle identification number.
We also sell the only approved hard awnings and three or four-season rooms for your camper or park model home. We will be happy to answer any of your questions.
Do we need a big, expensive tow vehicle to be seasonal campers?
Absolutely not! In fact, many of our seasonal families do not own tow vehicles. They buy their trailers from dealers who deliver the units directly to the campsite. Then the seasonal families come to the park in their usual vehicles.
Should you change sites, as long as the unit has a regular hitch, we will tow the trailer to your new site for a small fee. We cannot tow fifth wheel trailers, which have special hitches that hook up in the bed of a pickup truck.
How and when do we make payments?
Seasonal payments may be made with check or cash. Credit card payments will incur a small administrative fee. Your initial deposit to guarantee your site for the next camping season is due on or before September 1st. You can choose to make one, four or 11 equal payments. A $15.00 administrative fee applies to each payment. The electric meters are read on the 1st of each month. The bills are sent to you via email. Each payment includes the charge for kilowatts used, plus an equal portion of the base fee and state sales tax. Electric payments are net 30. Late fees will be assessed. All payments are accepted as the post mark or the date on the electronic check.
BASIC SEASONAL INFORMATION

After the campground is officiall closed, the management does not guarantee any amenities including water, electrical, digital TV, Wi-Fi or sewer.

Extra seasonal people on the site agreement: $390.00 each
The electricity is metered on your site. You pay for what you use.
Guest fees apply to all people who you invite to use any part of the resort. Examples would be the pool, bath house, game room and outdoor games and parking. You are required to present your guest at the office and pay the appropriate guest fee. The guest will be required to wear a daily wrist band.
If you simply invite your guest to your campsite, there is no fee, but your guest may still pay a daily parking fee and walk to the campsite. Your guest must obey all campground rules and regulations and comply with curfew times. Your guest is your responsibility. If your guest does not comply with the campground rules and regulations, management will escort the guest out of the campground. Due to our insurance regulations, your guestís pets are not permitted in the campground.
Resort Pass prices are available in the camp store. The passes let your guests enjoy the pool, game room or outdoor activities. You should decide (in advance) if you are paying for your guest or if you guest is paying to use the resort.
If you have a guest visit your site while you are not there, they are required to pay full site fees as if they were renting a site with their own camping equipment. We also need your written permission to let them use your camper.
For current seasonal site holders who renew for the following year, we offer FREE on-site storage, as long as your 2014 site agreement and deposit check are in the office by September 1st of each year.

Adult children who are married, engaged or otherwise part of a couple, may not be included on the site, but instead pay an additional fee for themselves, spouses and children when visiting the parents site.
- There are specific policies regarding seasonal camping. These are described in the seasonal agreement that you sign. Site alterations are not permitted. Tents cannot be erected on your site. Sheds cannot be brought into the campground without the approval from management. There are guidelines for the construction of decks.
