RATES & AVAILABILITY
Previous guest booking is complete. If you're a previous guest and you missed the window email us and we'll let you know what we have left. We had someone accidentally make 3 bookings so I'm thinking some dates are going to open up (they are all mid-week May and mid-week June)
Almost every weekend in May, June and July has already been booked by a large group or special event (this surprised us too...) so most summer dates available will be Monday to Thursday and they will begin to appear as the remaining weekend dates get booked. However, the calendar will not be functional for a 3 night stay until 9:30 a.m.
At this point our late summer/fall calendar is wide open and we do not expect large groups or special events to book up most of the weekends. So if you're wanting a summer weekend stay, please check back in early June. We'll send out an email with the "secret booking date" for previous guests in late May.
The 4 night/Thursday-Monday available dates will appear at 9 a.m. and as they fill up the 3 night/Monday-Thursday dates will appear but won't be able to be booked until 9:30 a.m. There are also a couple of odd dates, June 14-18 (4 nights) and June 20-24 (4 nights) that can be booked and will be available at 10:00 a.m. We will close the calendar at 10:30.
If you're a previous guest and you miss the booking date/time, you can still email us for a booking until we open the calendar on February 28th to new guests. After that time, there likely will be not other available dates.
If you would like to come in August/September/October, we will repeat this process in early June before we open to the general public on June 6th. We'll send you an email in late May to remind you. We will book November dates after fire season is over, probably early October, in case we have to move guests around due to fires or smoke.
For the first time since 2016 we will be changing our pricing. Week night stays will be $200 per night and weekend night stays will be $225 per night. However, we will no longer be charging a $50 cleaning fee so a 3 night stay will cost a total of $10 more and a 4 night stay will cost a total of $30 more.
The fee for the 3rd and 4th guest will remain at $20 per guest per night and $10 per guest per night for additional camping guests. If you're unsure of exactly how many additional guests you'll be having, just make the reservation for the minimum number that you know will be coming and we can settle up on the balance right before you arrive.
You can split your reservation if you'd like (2 nights for you and 2 nights for other friends, for example) and if you'd like additional linens (sheets and towels) we can arrange that for a $25 fee.
If you miss the booking date/time you can still email us before February 28th to get a booking. After February 28th, we will be completely booked for Spring/Early Summer 2021.
COVID-19 has made Summit Prairie a very sought after place because of its remote location. Many of the summer weekend dates are already booked by large groups and events but our late season booking (August-November) should have more available dates.
Summer Solstice Party
Not surprisingly, we canceled our Summer Solstice Party last year but we do plan on hosting that event this year. As a previous guest, we'd like to invite you June 18-20, 2021. This is a no cost event, just bring your tent, sleeping bag, etc. and join our neighbors and friends from all over the world for a weekend of fun, music, food and relaxation at the Summit Prairie. If you think you might be interested, just reply to this email and we'll make sure we add you to our invite list. Things could change a lot between now and then so we could end up canceling it again.
We will have once again our GUEST HOST PROGRAM in 2021. If you'd like to come stay at the Summit Prairie for a week or more and be the host for guests in the Lookout, let us know. You can stay in the Summer House and Bunkhouse at no cost to you! You will need to have a cell phone that works at the Summit Prairie (Verizon, AT&T, US Cellular, T-Mobile or Google Fi). You'll probably have to do at least one turnover (change the sheets on the beds of the lookout and make sure the place is clean and ready for the next guest - we have a training video that explains in detail how to do that) and you'll probably have to go to Canyonville once a week to do the laundry. But other than that, you'll have the rest of the time to relax and enjoy the Summit Prairie and Southern Oregon. Please let us know if you're interested and we'll start a dialogue to see if we can find dates that will work for you - particularly late September when we're hoping to take a trip ourselves.
Large Group Camping and Week Long stays
We are offering the Summit Prairie for Large Group Camping. Those can be booked now so if you're interested, you can find more information on the "Large Group Events" tab of our website, www.summitprairie.com. Also, we're holding dates for guests that want to book a week or longer stay - we realize that with our booking system it would be impossible to book a contiguous week so let us know and we'll hold an entire week for you.
Winter at Summit Prairie
We have never been open in the winter time but at the request of several of our previous guests, we had a test program this winter with guests staying in the lookout while we were not there. It has worked out fairly well so we'll be extending that for the 2021-2022 winter.
This will be for previous guests only, and not for the faint of heart! You might get lucky and have snow or you might get unlucky and have snow! The price will be $100 per night, no minimum nights, no maximum nights, no cleaning fee and no fee for additional guests. You will need to bring your own pillows, blankets, sheets, towels, dish towels and you need to clean up after yourself and take the trash with you.
We're not taking reservations yet but if you're interested, stay in touch with us during the year and we'll hold dates for you.
Please feel free to email us prior to the booking date if you have any questions about the procedure. Take care and we look forward to seeing you this season at the Summit Prairie!
