How to Make A Reservation for Any Activity at Top of the Pines
Step 1: Check the calendar and make sure the date(s) you want are available. (Attention tent campers: There are 9 walk-in campsites available on any given day. If you see that nine sites have been reserved, that means the campground is full.)
Step 2: Review the TOP Safety Rules and Regulations. (No signature required to set up reservation; wedding reservations will be required to sign upon arrival onsite for event.)
Step 3: Fill out the TOP Reservation Form. (Not needed for family picnics or individual hiking/biking/disc golf/skiing/day use)
Step 4: Print out, sign and scan the TOP Indemnification Form (or you can fill it out on your computer; it is an interactive PDF form). Email signed form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Only the person making the reservation needs to sign the form. Not needed for family picnics or individual day use.
Step 5: If you are planning a wedding of any size OR you have a group larger than 30 OR are an overnight student group using our facilities: Request a Certificate of Liability Insurance (for $1 million in coverage) from your insurance company (or school).
