It’s Pirates Week At MarcoPolo

We’re celebrating our Pirates and invite you to join us Saturday evening from 6-10pm for Pirate themed games & treasure hunt followed by a live band Pirate Party dance in the Rec Hall.

Early Notice for Halloween Week

One of our biggest events is fast approaching the week of August 5th – 11th… Halloween Week.  We’ll have a Halloween Fashion Show @ 6pm followed by Trick or Treating till 8pm wrapping up with a dance from 8-10pm in the Rec Hall.

Trick or Treating will be on Saturday evening (August 11th) and for those of you that want to participate you can pick up ribbons at the office to identify your site for the children as they make their way around the campground.  We have had a large number of children participate in this activity and ask everyone to take special care and attention when moving throughout the campground that evening as the children will be excited and perhaps not paying as close as attention as they should be.

Pampering Right at Your Campsite

Did you know that you can get a full Manicure or Pedicure at your campsite now?  That’s right, Rossy will come right to you!  She also offers Gel/Acrylic nail applications or if you just need something special for the night she’ll paint your fingers/toes in beautiful designs.  Please call Rossy directly at 213-2537 or email for pricing & appointments.
