4. How do I make a reservation?

In order to make a reservation at Camp Ross Relles, please complete the Contact Form in the Contact Us section of this website. If you need help completing this form, call the Lions Camp reservations office at (916) 965-3898, and speak to a staff member. The office is open Monday through Friday, from 8AM to 5PM. Submitting the Contact Form places a tentative hold on a site for up to two weeks without any obligation on your part. This gives you time to visit the site, discuss the site with members of your group, and come to a decision about your event. We then ask that you call the reservations office again to confirm your reservation, at which point a contract will be mailed to you.
