Camp Northern Lights Policies
Check-in: Weekly reservations are from Sunday to Sunday. Check-in is 4pm. Check-out is 10am. At check-in you will receive a key to your private cabin as well as tickets for any vacation package that you have reserved (International Wolf Center, North American Bear Center, etc.)
Deposits & Payments: A $250 deposit is required for each reservation. Deposits are due at the time of your reservation. We accept Visa, Master card and Discover. Personal checks can be mailed to Camp Northern Lights, 9130 Escape Road, Babbitt, MN, 55706, but must arrive 30 days prior to your arrival. Payment in full will be received upon check-in and a credit card or cash are accepted. Payment for vacation packages take place at or before check-in.
Hint: A lot of our guests mail checks to use weekly or monthly as sort of a “vacation savings account”. Many families find that this is an effective way to set aside their vacation money bit-by-bit. We’ve all felt the pinch of a tough economy and the need to tighten our belts. Use this tool if it helps your family budget.
Cancellations & Refunds: Refund of your security deposit is provided to you less a $50 service fee so long as you cancel your reservation more than 30 days from your arrival date. If you cancel your reservation within 8-30 days before your scheduled arrival then we will retain your deposit unless we are able to fill your reservation with another party. If your cancellation takes place the week of your arrival then we will charge you the cost of your stay unless we are able to fill your reservation. Please appreciate that it is nearly impossible to fill a week-long reservation at the last moment, as families typically plan their Ely vacations 6 to 12 months in advance.
If you have a reservation that is fewer than 5 nights then we reserve the right to reassign you to a cabin of equal or greater capacity at our sole discretion. RV and camping reservations are subject to a change of site at any time.
