VACmidwest Schedule Changes

Out of concern for the health of you, our friends and the community at large, we have cancelled the VACmidwest Region 8 Spring Rally 2020.

Reports are that the campground currently is still open, but that could change.  Hosts Tom & Shirley Herron worked with the camp ranger and park board for approval of a refund of your camping fees (minus the $4 on-line registration charge).
Here’s the direct quote from the ranger “Because of the virus concerns, the Marion County Conservation Board has allowed for full refunds of all camping fees, this does not include the $4.00 reservation fee that the website charges when making the reservation.
So the options to cancel a reservation this spring would be to reschedule for a later date or request a refund, the refund will come in the form of a check mailed from the Marion County Auditors office.”
Contact Ranger Mike –   RobertsCreek@iowatelecom.net to cancel for campsite.
Please provide arrival date and an address to mail your refund.

Dates: May 7-10, 2020
Location: Robert’s Creek EAST Campground,1631 Fillmore, Otley, IA
