I believe they have a contract with a clause that says the CG can raise rates if necessary. The camper can accept the increase or ask for a refund.

Without knowing the cancellation policy in the contract, we don't know if he can get a refund.

He can certainly ask for a refund...he can also ask for a pet unicorn but both have nothing to do with what is enforceable per the contract.

Just my opinion here and I am not a lawyer. If OP had paid a deposit for site I would say it was open to a price increase for the other nights not paid for. If OP paid in full I would think all nights were paid for before price increase and should be honored.


So what if the campground requires a 100% deposit?

What percentage you paid doesn't matter...it's what the contract terms set out that counts.

Example: Airlines can kick you off the plane after...you've paid in full, received your boarding card, passed thru security and are buckled into your seat. All very much legal, because the contract terms you agreed to allow for it (and no the airline doesn't walk you thru all the terms and conditions, that's your burden)

This has happened to me a few times, however it was always spelled out during the reservation process. The more popular franchise campgrounds routinely raise rates year to year, and when they take reservations a year out I've come to expect to pay a differential.

the O/P should contact the Better Business bureau in the state of the campground, they should be able to provide honest answers. its not the money so much its the principal. some people just don't care and will lay down and let people walk on them. others do care, they are the ones that make it better for all of us. its all about right and wrong.

If I was putting money down on this situation. I would also agree, reservation placed in prior year subject to the rates for the arrival year. But like the Tootsie Roll Pop debate, we may never know.

Not one in a million people check the Better Business Bureau ratings of a park when making reservations. I have had exactly one interaction with them in all the years I have been in business. They wanted me to contact someone who complained and answer as to why we were closed and wouldn't accommodate someone in January. I didn't bother to respond and never have checked my BBB rating. With the internet sites rating businesses the BBB is now a relic from the past. Totally a waste of time complaining to them.

Wire fraud is a crime in which a person concocts a scheme to defraud or obtain money based on false representation or promises. This criminal act is done using electronic communications or an interstate communications facility.
