Welcome back to another great summer season of camping at Marco Polo Land!  We hope you have a great stay and if there is anything we can do to make your camping experience more enjoyable please don’t hesitate to let any of our staff know.

We’ve been receiving a lot of calls lately and felt the best way to communicate with everyone was via our newsletter; if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call, however we hope this will address most of the frequently asked questions at this time.

We want to make this newsletter as useful as possible for you our campers and welcome any suggestions you may have.


Theme Weeks & Activities

As you’ve come to know, theme weeks are a very important part of our campground activities and again we are happy to offer you a wide variety of themes that will hopefully appeal to everyone throughout the summer; and we encourage your participation.

In each newsletter we’ll give you more in-depth info on what’s coming up for the week ahead.  As well we’ll keep a running list of the theme so you can plan accordingly.

If you have any suggestions or ideas on how to make our theme weeks better please be sure to let us know at

We are very excited this summer to have Rebecca back as our activity director and again she will have Crafts & Games in the Rec Hall from 9am-1pm, Hayrides daily at 5pm and from 6:30-10pm there will be lots of organized activities (DJ will run the events on Saturday, Sunday & Monday nights)….check the Rec Hall windows for more specific details.

New this year….we have campground Mascots, who will be around the park daily from 6-8pm during high season…stay tuned!
