Am I guaranteed the cabin number that I reserved?                                                                                                 

We try to keep you in the cabin that you reserved, however sometimes you may be moved to a different cabin number. In the case you are moved to a different unit you will be moved to a unit exactly like the one you reserved or given an upgrade.

Am I guaranteed the RV site that I reserved?
We try to assign you the RV site you reserved, however, sometimes we have to “shuffle” RV sites.
We are traveling with a trailer, do you have parking available for us?
Yes, Holy Smoke Resort does in fact have limited parking available for trailers, whether you are moving or hauling motorcycles. However, please be aware that this parking is located down by the RV Park. Upon check-in you will be directed as to where to park your trailer. You may leave your vehicle attached to the trailer, or you may “drop” the trailer if you wish. If you wish to drop the trailer, please be sure to bring any necessary locks and wheel chocks to secure your trailer. Please be aware that if you are dropping a trailer and traveling with a motorcycle as well, parking next to cabins/rooms is limited and you may be required to leave your primary vehicle attached to the trailer or across the highway as well. Due to the terrain and our layout, we do not offer trailer parking next to the cabins due to access issues. All trailers will be required to utilize this parking arrangement. If you have any questions in regards to trailer parking or need additional information, please call us at 605-666-4616.
