Booking on this site today, May 30th, 2024 is for

Preious Guests - if you missed getting a booking, email us at
before June 2nd and we'll let you know what is still available.

Booking 2024

Our 2024 "regular" season will run from April 4th through mid-November. We'll keep our fingers crossed that we don't have to close due to wildfires!  This website tends to be a bit "buggy" so if you're trying to get a booking but the dates don't seem to work correctly, email us and we'll make the reservation for you.


Just like last year, we will be booking previous guests on this website,  If you still would like to book on Airbnb, please check the calendar on the site when we open it and then send an email to We'll hold the dates for you and let you book them on Airbnb (you will have to pay the Airbnb booking fee...)  


For August/September/October bookings, we will open the calendar at 9:00 am Pacific Time on Thursday, May 30th, 2024 and will only accept bookings from previous guests. We then will close the calendar until we reopen to the general public at 9:00 am on June 2nd. We will book all new guests on the Airbnb website, not the Summit Prairie website. 

2024 Minimum Stays and Pricing
We offer a 4 night stay from Thursday until Monday or a 3 night stay from Monday until Thursday. When we open the calendar at 9:00 am Pacific Time on Thursday, May 30th, 2024, we will be booking Thursday to Monday night stays only (4 nights). At 9:15 am we will book Monday to Thursday stays (3 nights). Be sure to refresh your browser frequently so the site reflects the current night minimums.  
The rate for Sunday through Thursday nights is $250 per night and the rate for Friday and Saturday night is $275 per night. 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.
If you are unable to get a booking on the previous guest booking date, you are welcome to try to get a booking on the new guest date of June 2nd, 2024 at 9 a.m. Pacific Time. We have almost 2,000 names on that list so it will be very competitive to get a booking. We will be booking New Guests on the Airbnb site, After June 2nd, we will be completely booked for Spring/Summer/Fall of 2024.  We will book November after fire season, probably late September or early October - let us know if you'd like us to notify you of when November dates open up on the calender.



We DO NOT charge a cleaning fee however we do pay someone to clean and prepare the space in between each guest.  As you can imagine, it is not easy nor inexpensive to find someone who will drive all the way to the middle of nowhere to clean and make the space ready for new guests.  We ask that you help by washing, drying and putting away all dishes, stripping the beds, putting dirty laundry in the laundry bag and taking the trash to the trash cans.


We will be at the Summit Prairie for a few days each month to make sure everything is in order but at this point we have yet to pin down exactly when we'll be there.  It will have a lot of do with who our guests are and what our personal schedule is like. More than likely we'll be there at the end of the month/beginning of the following month but again, those dates aren't set quite yet.

Forest Thinning

We have completed our forest thinning project but are having some prescribed burning being done so you may see some burned areas. 

Large Group Camping and Week Long stays
We are offering the Summit Prairie for Large Group Camping (20-30 campers) however we are almost completely booked for those events. Let us know if you'd like to be on a wait list and email us before the end of this year if you want us to hold dates for you in 2024. You can find more information on the "Large Group Events" tab of our website, 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. Entire week bookings have become very popular this year and we have very few contiguous weeks left.
Winter at Summit Prairie
We will be open again during the winter so if you miss getting a booking during our regular season, we do have a several dates available from mid-November, 2024 through mid-March, 2025 before we head back down there to get ready for our 2025 season.  Email us if you're interested and we'll see if we can figure out some dates that work for you.
Winter at Summit Prairie is 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! So far this year we have had very little snow but of course, that could always change. The price is $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.  And as usual, pets are not allowed.
And finally...
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!
