Cancellation: Any cancellation by the tenant must be reported to the provider by registered letter:

- By Campsite l’Orée du Lac: when a stay is cancelled upon reasons of the campsite, except in case of force majeure which leads us to cancel for the safety of the customers or in case of non-compliance with internal regulations , the customer gets back all amounts already paid.

If the stay is cancelled less than 30 days before the scheduled date of arrival, the full amount will be charged.
