Ballot entry

Applications for the 2022-23 summer ballot have been finalised. 

 

To keep the ballot fair to all entrants:

  • Applications which stand at the close of the ballot are considered final.
  • Payment details are required to submit an application. Should your application be successful, payment will be automatically debited.
  • A cancellation fee applies to any withdrawal of a successful application after the draw has taken place.
  • One application per person/group is allowed for each ballot (camping, cabins/huts, group lodges/units). Your application will not be processed if you enter a ballot more than once.
  • Incomplete entries cannot be saved. Please have all your information at hand before commencing an application.

  • Results will be sent by email once allocation is complete. Due to the high number of applicants no changes to applications are possible during the allocation period in order to complete the process as quickly and fairly as possible.
