Check-in & Check-out

We know you’re excited to get here, and we’ll be ready to welcome you promptly starting at 2pm each day (for daily, weekly, and extended-stay guests). If you prefer to check-in in person, we’re awaiting your arrival between 2pm-6pm each day. Contactless, after hours check-in, is available all night, although we prefer that all guests arrive before quiet hours begin at 10pm. We know you’ll be sad to leave, but check-out is 12pm the day after the final night of your paid reservation. Come back soon!

If possible, please plan to arrive prior to 6pm and stop by the Front Desk to check-in. Just pass through the open gate and drive toward the Clubhouse building straight ahead and on the left. Park in the pull through check-in parking across from the big sun mural, and visit us inside the Camp Store. We’ll welcome you and get you set up for a wonderful stay. Please remember to bring your driver license or official ID in with you, as we’ll need this to complete your check-in.

If you are a short term (nightly or weekly) guest arriving after 6pm, please give us a call (254) 236-2866 to exchange additional information in preparation for your after hours arrival.

You’ll receive your temporary gate code to enter the property in your pre-arrival email the day before you check-in. Pro tip: be sure to press # after keying in your 4 digit code.

If you are an extended stay (monthly) guest, you will need to arrive 10am-6pm so that we get you fully squared away with your stay. After hours arrivals are not permitted for extended stay guests.

You’re a key to making Gather Campground an awesome place to stay, so please make sure to leave your site clean and free of trash. We’ll be happy to come by and dispose of your bagged trash – so feel free to leave you last bag(s) of trash at the curb of your site and one of our team members will dispose of it. Otherwise you’re all set to leave!

Doesn’t everyone love a late check-out?! We’d love to accommodate this request, and space permitting, you might just get lucky. A late check-out may be available if another guest is not checking-in to your current site that same day. Please visit a team member in our Camp Store or text 254-236-2866 to learn if a late check-out is possible. Depending upon the time of your departure, late check-out fees may apply.

Bookings & Rates

Yes! We’d love to host you for a tour to check out our campground any time 10am-6pm, so please schedule a visit in advance by sending our manager an email at bellcounty@gather.camp. Our goal is to give you our full attention during your tour, so please plan for a weekday visit if possible.

We will do our best to accommodate your preferred area within the campground. However, in order to have the flexibility to best serve all guests, guaranteed sites or “site lock” is not something offered at Gather Campground.

Gather Campground has a wide variety of sites available. All sites are concrete paved and include full hook ups. However, depending on the size and specific site characteristics, site fees vary.

Furthermore, just like a hotel, rates at Gather Campground change as demand and availability change. No rates are guaranteed until your reservation is processed and payment is received. You will receive an email confirmation when your reservation is confirmed, typically within one hour of booking.

Regardless of how you make your booking, the full cost of the reservation is due up front. This true when booking online, over the phone, or via a 3rd party.

Creep up to the gate as if you’re trying to win a game of ‘how slow can you drive’.

If you’re having any issues entering/exiting the front gate during your stay, please call (254) 236-2866 immediately.

Please either turn around and visit us in the Camp Store, or call us between 10am and 6pm at 254-236-2866.
