Ok, I just purchased it to use it tomorrow. It says Redeemable after July 28, 2012 at 12AM. Does that mean midnight tonight? And I can use it tomorrow?

Q:

Ok so if I purchase the $54 option i can bring 5 other people with me and we can all camp and tube for 2 nights with no additional charges except for $10 parking and $10 garbage fee? How much extra is parking over Labor day weekend the 31st to 2nd? Can we check in on Friday the 17th and depart Sunday the 19th? Do we have to pay a fee for the tubes? How mant tents can be on each campsite?

Danelle J.  asked on  Jul 26, 2012

A:

Loaded question, the groupon, if used for weekends is only good for two people. Additional people would have to have another groupon or pay regular price when they arrive. Typically Labor Day weekend is slow on the Apple River, so there is not an additional charge per vehicle. The tubes are included with your groupon. You will receive four tubing passes for each groupon when you arrive. Hope that answers your questions...

Q:

Is the Groupon good for weekends? Are there supplies to tie tubes together or do we need to bring our own?

Lynn K.  asked on  Jul 26, 2012

A:

good for any day, but 95% of people tube on Saturday. Rope is 25 cents for each 10 foot length, or you can bring your own.

Q:

Can you help me understand how this is really a good deal? It seems like you can get a better deal on the company's own website where, if you book for two nights, you get two days of tubing passes per person included free. For example, if there are three people going during "off peak" times (which is most of the season), and you get the "$54 for two days of tubing and two nights of camping for up to six (up to a $140 value)" deal. It would only cost you $50 dollars in full cost, as follows: $5/person/night (Sun-Thurs, which is what the deal limits you to for more than 2 people) = $30 (includes two tubing passes/person) $10 vehicle fee = $10 $30 garbage deposit where you get $20 back if the site is clean = $10 net TOTAL: $50 I say buyer beware on this one. If you are interested in it, make sure you check out the real website and see if your plans (depending on peak season, number of people, etc.) would be cheaper without the Groupon. Feel free to correct me or provide additional information, if I have misunderstood. Given their website's offer for free tubing passes with two nights camping, I don't see how the "actual value" could ever be as high as is claimed for any of the camping-related deals.

Noelle N.  asked on  Jul 26, 2012

A:

If you were to book online now, it's $40 per person for your weekend, plus $10/vehicle plus $10 garbage= $104.40 instead of $49... if you just show up, add $60 more in tubing passes to it $164.40 instead of $49 for the same thing...

Q:

I would like to purchase this and use it today for tubing (my buddy and our kids are planning to go tube and he wants us to go to a different vendor, but this looks great to me.) Can I use this today if I purchase today?

Douglas G.  asked on  Jul 26, 2012

A:

Absolutely

Q:

If we were to purchase the two nights of camping and two days of tubing, can we use it to stay saturday night and Sunday? or Can we use it just for saturday night? Or do we have to check-in on friday?

Tanya  asked on  Jul 26, 2012

Nope you can check in on Saturday
