During the booking process you will be asked about dietary restrictions, preferred cabin mates and transportation times etc. Please have any specific booking information you were given from your event coordinator available at that time!
Mainland Dock Arrival
A few weeks before your stay with us, you will be given an information package including your arrival time and directions to the mainland dock. We are a boat access only private venue, because of this, it is important to arrive as close to your given arrival time as possible. We transport 2-4 cottages at a time and space is limited at our loading zone so we ask that you plan your driving time from your home to Waupoos Mainland dock accordingly. That being said, if you miss your arrival time, we can re-schedule you for the next available boat! (No transport times are scheduled after 8pm for the safety of you as a guest and our transportation staff.)
Once you have arrived at the Waupoos Mainland Dock, you will be greeted by one of our Camp staff, who will show you where to park temporarily while you unload your vehicle. They will also help you load your luggage onto the boat. Once your items are loaded, Camp staff will direct you to permanent mainland parking (a short walk from the Mainland Dock).
After you have parked and are back at the boat, our Camp staff will get you fitted for life jackets. Life jackets are mandatory for children under 16 and weak swimmers. You will then take the short 3-5 minute boat ride over to the island.
After the short 5 minute boat trip, you will arrive at the island. Camp staff will meet you at the island dock and help you transport your luggage and personal items to your cottage. Your friendly Camp staff member will let you know a bit about the property and the cottages as you walk to your "island home".
Information books are located in each cottage for any questions that may come up during your stay, there will also be a Camp staff member on the property during your stay if any questions come up.
