Hi Folks,
It’s time to start wrapping up the 2017 Season.  Where does the time GO?!?!?!
We want to thank everyone who visited in 2017. We sincerely hope you enjoyed your visits.
All in all, it was a good season for us, thanks to our wonderful guests and spectacular crew.
As always, when one season ends, it is time to start thinking about the next. 
So, if you are already looking forward to sitting around the campfire in 2018--here is the scoop:
Projected Calendar 
*Traditional Season Opening – Memorial Day Weekend–Friday, May 25th 2018
*Out of an abundance of caution, we will DELAY confirming Reservations
for the first 2 weeks of the season--May 25-June 6--until we are sure that scheduled Forest Service
water line improvements will be complete and that there will be no interruption of water for our guests
(unfortunately, as was the case in 2017).
Official confirmed bookings CAN be made for June 7 and beyond on opening Reservation Day.

Season Closing – Monday, September 10th 2018 
Cabins will be available through Sunday, September 9th.
The Weekend of September 14 & 15 is available for a Private Party or Wedding
interested in booking the entire Resort.

More Details

1.    *In an effort to manage the volume of calls and minimize frustration for all – 
we will limit calls on the first day (October 2nd) to include 
GROUPS of 3 or more Cabins   OR   extended stays of 7 or more nights. 
 On October 3rd -- calls for any size reservation will be accepted.

2.    After an initial 2 week period of accepting reservations we will temporarily  
close the booking office (starting October 16) until after the Holidays 
and resume accepting reservations in January of 2018.
   (*Exact reopening date to be determined).

1) GET A JUMP START - Send a reservation REQUEST via our website online "Webervations" system
starting Monday, SEPTEMBER 24th. This is very helpful in expediting the booking process for most guests. 
Julie will try to review these REQUESTS in advance and let you know of any POLICY Issues 
that would cause rejection of your reservation.
This will give you a chance to come up with alternatives before the OCTOBER 2nd & October 3rd 
reservation opening dates*.
Click on our website “CHECK AVAILABILITY” link: scripts/resbook.asp?memberid=moonlake1
*REMEMBER! This Online REQUEST IS NOT a Confirmed Reservation!!!!!!  
This is ONLY A REQUEST! and is not a confirmed reservation until you have spoken to Julie or Emily
or receive an Email confirming your booking on or after October 2nd. 
2) In Advance--please View--
(These will be updated within the next week or two, minimal changes are expected).  
and Deposit/Cancellation Policies:

3) Usually, Reservations that include both a Friday & Saturday will require a 3rd night
(Sunday or Thursday).
4) Once bookings have begun, Reservation requests that leave a single night opening between
already booked stays will likely not be accepted.
View our online calendar starting October 2nd to see potential conflicts:
5) After making your request-check your email frequently! 
If possible, we will communicate this way first, instead of by phone.
6) On October 2nd & October 3rd, PRIORITY WILL BE GIVEN TO "LIVE" PHONE CALLS but you can leave
a message if the line is busy. NOTE: the number to call is (970)731-9906.
We'll call back or email ASAP, but in some cases, that may not be until the next day.
Keep trying to get through if you're able.
Remember, it is always recommended to have a second choice of dates and cabins, if possible.
7) CREDIT CARD payment* for deposit is PREFERRED for all reservations EXCEPT larger groups.
(Hint--When making your reservation request-- please provide the credit card that you will want to use 
for your reservation deposit.  Changing the card number later is possible but complicated).

Boil Order Currently in Effect 6/20/17

Attention Moon Lake Visitors

Boil Order Currently in Effect 6/20/17

The USFS is in the process of upgrading the Moon Lake culinary water system which supplies the Campground and Resort Cabins. Until the upgrades are 100% complete, there will be periods of possible non-potable water in the system. Specific dates are unknown.

When there is doubt of potability, a boil order will be posted. 
Please prepare accordingly by bringing bottled drinking water.
Campers may want to fill trailer holding tanks before arrival.

This problem was unexpected. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.
You will be notified again when upgrades are complete.
Thank you for you understanding.

For more information call the Lodge 435-454-3142

Hello Friends and Greeting from Moon Lake!

The staff has been on site for more than a month now and the Resort is in its third week of operation. Despite the small cold front that moved through yesterday it has been a glorious spring with a  mostly full lake, humming birds and robins galore,  aspens and pines in their greenest of green, bunnies, deer and even wild flowers already in bloom!
Temperatures return to the 70’s by the weekend and even low 80’s by next week.

June still remains relatively quiet. It seems the population at large believes we are still under a blanket of snow from the winter storms. We get daily phone calls asking if the road is open. SO, for the record, THERE IS NO SNOW AT MOON LAKE AND ALL IS READY TO GO!

As for Cabin availability--as usual--many dates are already full.
However, life happens and plans change—so, sometimes there ARE cancellations. 
In fact, two of the favorite Cabins--11 & 24 are OPEN NEXT WEEK: 

Cabin #24 for 2 nights--Sunday and Monday--June 18 & June 19th
Cabin #11 for 5 nights—Wednesday, June 21 through Monday June 26th.

(At this time, there are no other vacancies in these two Cabins until late in August--so grab ‘em while you can!)

Also next week--we have Cabins #7, #8 and  #1 for Wednesday & Thursday (June 21 & 22)
and Rustic Cabin #22 (June 21 & 22) available.

Repeat guests should mention this email for $10 off per night for ALL remaining June Vacancies. (Minimum night stays may apply.) Multiply Cabins for the same night may be eligible for a larger discount!

For more availability options in June, July and August--view our ONLINE CALENDAR at:

So—Summer is Here, We’re Here and it’s already going fast! Why wait? Book Now!

Hope to see you soon!

Bill, Julie and the Moon Lake Gang
