Silver Springs RV/Tent Sites

There are a limited number of non-electric RV parking spots still available for 2019. Electric RV spots are sold out. The exact number of these sites is still to be determined. Prices for the weekend are as follows:

  • Electric site - Sold out (join waiting list)
  • Non-Electric site - $200 total
  • Tent site - $50 total

Campers can arrive to the site 1:00 pm Monday, July 1 and need to vacate by 1:00 pm Monday, July 8. Water and showers will be available onsite, although not at individual campsites. Dump sites are not available onsite. RV sites are approximately 50' by 30'. All guests under 18 years of age that wish to stay onsite must stay with their parents. Additional information for event camping will be emailed to campers closer to the date.

If you’d like to stay next to someone, please arrive together with that person and request to be parked side-by-side. Those that do not arrive together are not guaranteed spots next to each other.

10-year Reserved Sites

The infrastructure for the RV sites is to be installed early this spring and will include electrical hookups and common-use water spigots. To offset these costs, the LLC is offering 100 of these sites for a ten-year contract at $1,000 per site. These RV sites can also be used for any LLC or local congregation event held on the Silver Springs property, beginning with these services. To reserve such a site, contact Jessica Nikula or complete the reservation form.

If you purchased a 10-year campsite, those sites will be reserved for you automatically and you will not need to make any additional reservations. These sites will have electric hookups. 10-year sites are sold out.

If you would still like a site, please call or text Jessica Nikula at (763) 267-8285.
