Min/Max Age Groups: Rule Setup

Learn how to manage minimum and maximum occupancy by Age Group.


The Mix/Max Age Groups Rule allows users to define the minimum and maximum occupancy levels for each age group within specific site types. This rule ensures precise control over the number of occupants allowed per reservation, catering to the unique requirements of RV sites, lodging rentals, and tent sites.


  • Tailor occupancy limits based on age groups for diverse site types.
  • Ensure compliance with park regulations and optimize accommodation utilization.
  • Implement flexible occupancy policies by configuring variations within age group requirements.
