Our policy is group booking.  Individual billing is not available, arrange payments within your group and have your group leader make your reservation using our online reservation system.  Please make every effort to book your initial reservation as a complete group.  There is a $5 fee per guest to add guests to an existing booking.  

You may NOT book multiple cabins for groups of 8 or less.  Please use 1 cabin for groups of 8 or less to leave availability for other guests.  This policy allows us to offer Private Accommodations (Not Shared).  Charit Creek Lodge is a communal experience, with private accommodations for your group.  We are not set up nor able to operate by splitting your group across multiple cabins.
