Life jackets and flotation devices can be worn in Lazy Lagoon (our swimming pool with diving boards) and Tykes Typhoon. Due to the risk of life jacket straps being hooked to the climbing wall, or underwater chains, Kamp Dels prohibits the use of Life jackets or flotation devices in Khaos Kove.

Your base camp site fee includes 2 people. For each additional person added to the site (ages 2 &above) it is $10/person/night.

We charge per sleeping unit not per site. If you are bringing in more than one family setting up more than one camping unit, we do charge per camping unit. (One family is considered 2 adults and children under the age of18 still living at home) If you are bringing in two families, you will be better off renting two sites. You will get twice the room for the same fee.The only exceptions to this rule is if there is only one family, as listed above, and the children would like to sleep in their own tent, we do not charge an additional fee for the extra camping unit. Please inform our staff at check in time if you are setting up an additional camping unit. You will need to acquire an additional tag for your extra camping unit.
