  • My reservation says it starts at 5pm, does that mean everything will be setup at this time?"
    Our reservation system requires us to put the same start and end time for all reservations. During the reservation process we will ask you when you would like to arrive and leave your campsite. We will then adjust the time of the reservation to match when we have staff to setup and tear down the camping gear.
  • When can I arrive and leave the campsite?
    Please refer to your park campground reservation check-in and check out times. Squirrel Box will not be allowed to setup your campground outside of these times. Please allow 1 hours for setup and 1 hour for tear down of the camping gear.
  • Can I make multiple reservations?
    Absolutely! After you reserve your package, please return to the main website page and click the "Book Now" button and reserve again.
  • Can I extend my reservation?
    This depends on availability. If availability is open, we can extend you reservation. Please contact Squirrel Box at (513) 488-1010 to make this happen.

    You will need to contact Squirrel Box directly for any change in the existing reservation. Your time and date of the call will be taken into account when you call us at (513) 488-1010.
  • Is Squirrel Box gear clean and how often is it cleaned?
    We take serious pride on the cleanliness and quality of the gear that we provide. We inspect, clean and repair each piece of gear when we get it back from the last reservation. Sleeping bags are washed and sanitized before each reservation. If it can not be cleaned we will not be offered for booking.
  • How many people can your tents hold?
    It depends on which type of bedding you are looking for. We limit the number of people for a confortable stay with room to move around. Using cots: There is a limit of 4 for the large tent and 2 for the small tent. Using floor foam pads" There is a limit or 6 for the large tent and 3 for the small tent.
  • Do I need to be there for the setup?
    Likely no. We will contact the park office when arriving to validate your name and site number before we start setting things up. In the rare occasion that the park will not let us enter your site without you, we will make every effort to contact you to get access to start setting things up. If this still becomes challenging we will meet you at your campsite during arrival time and setup up when you are there.

    Each campground is different. Please check wht the campground rules to see what is allowed before reserving our gear. If allowed, our tents accomodate up to 6 people in large tent and up to 3 people in smaller tent depending if using foam pads or cots. If reserving 2 tents, please make sure site is large enough to accomodate both. We are not responsible for verifying rules and size of site for each campground.

    The maximum occupancy is 4 cots or 6 foam pads for the larger tent and 2 cots and 3 foam pads in smaller one. It is close quarters at maximum occupancy. The larger tent is actually an eight person tent and the smaller one is a four person tent, but that would be very uncomfortable.
