New campers coming into the campground must have trailers that are not older than 10 years or manufactured before 2000.

The owners will address the situation in an appropriate timeline or they will be advised to leave.
10. No tenting or second camper is allowed on your lot. The exception is for children under the age of 14 to stay in a tent for maximum of 2 nights when visiting, but approval must be obtained from Park Management prior to erecting a tent.
11. Trailer and lot safety: Please check your extension cord before the season starts so you don’t have a fire. You must use a minimum of “Outdoor #10 gauge wire” extension cord if you are running on a 30-amp breaker, when power is installed into the park.
11.a Direct Electrical Hook Up: the fire commissioner’s office recommended to us that every trailer should be able to be un-plugged quickly in the event of a fire starting. Please do not wire direct into our receptacles, when power is installed into the park.
11.b Interior wire is not to be used outdoors. This wire does not have the proper rubber coating and will eventually break down and could seriously injure someone. We’ve discussed this with several campers in the past so we are going to disconnect these lines before the season starts up and unplug them if and when we see them during the season.
11.c Air Conditioner: PLEASE insure your Air Conditioner is not left on while you are away; please close all windows and doors when operating your air conditioner.
(Rules & Regulations)
12. Water Hoses: many water hoses are too long or too old for their drinking or cooking water. Please remember that the water sits in there all week in the warm sun and bacteria will begin to grow. Please replace periodically or clean out with javax. We intentionally increase chlorine levels during spring and warmer weather to assist with cleansing.
13. Please watch and be mindful of your campfires and outdoor candles: All campfires must be in a proper approved campfire container. Please keep your camp fires to a safe size, keep a emergency water hose or 45 galloon drum of water ready in case of emergency, and make sure the fire in the fire pit or candle is extinguished when going to bed or leaving your campsite.
13.a Fire pits: All fire pits have to be made to code, including 4 inches of concrete in thickness, made 4x4 square feet
14. Parking: All campers are to park in their designated parking only. Most of the sites have room for two vehicles only and therefore should only park two vehicles and not attempt to park more than two. Do not park on the grass or around the playground as children can easily run out from behind a parked vehicle. Please do not park a vehicle in other campsites parking without their prior approval. Please insure your visitor’s park in the front parking lot when visiting and not to attempt to park, which can protrude onto the roadway. Emergency vehicles – ambulances, police and fire trucks must be able to proceed down the road without hesitation. Any vehicle parking on or blocking a roadway or parking inappropriately in the parking lot will be towed at the owner’s expense. If the front parking lot is full, please have your visitor park outside the campground on the side street. (Stonyridge Road/18N)
15. Pets: Pets are welcome in the campground provided they are people friendly and are properly handled. Please keep your dog or cat on a leash at all times when outside your trailer. Carry a waste bag when walking your dog and clean up after your pet. We encourage campers to report to us if they see any people not cleaning up after their animals. We will issue a fine of $50 each time it is reported that someone has not cleaned up after their dog. Ensure your child is able to properly handle and control the dog when taking it for a walk, and make sure they have a waste bag for clean up. Visitors may only bring a dog into the campground if it is under 20lbs (9kg). If a visitor enters with a larger dog we will ask them to leave immediately. Management will ask campers and guests to have their dogs removed from the Campground if management deems the dogs to be threatening or dangerous to the well being of others. Leave your dog at home if it is not people friendly. Tell your children not to go into another camper’s lot where there is a dog, friendly or not. Do not leave your dog unattended at your campsite as they may bark and bother neighbors. Pets are not allowed in washrooms or in the swim (pit) area.
16. Swimming: The pit hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. each day (weather permitting).
The Pit, or swim area is NOT supervised and there are NO lifeguards on duty.
Please ensure you and visitors abide by the government rules posted inside the pool, pit, swim area.
We are generally very happy the way people conduct themselves, their children and their guests around the swimming area. Most people are aware of our safety and behavior concerns, and we really appreciate it when adults conduct themselves respectfully and keep an eye on their children.
Please encourage your children (and some adults) not to splash others.
Please shower before entering the swimming area.
Please tell your children that the outdoor shower is there for people to rinse off, and not for them to play with.
Please watch your children very closely around the pit areas.
Air mattresses or blow up floating devises are allowed into the pit area (life jackets are mandatory for kids). Children must know their boundaries; pit waters can be extremely deep in certain areas.
Please ensure children age 6 and under, wear a life jacket at all times when in the pool area as well as in the swimming pool and hot tub. The pit is approximately 13-15 feet deep with shallower areas. Please use your cautious judgment for children 7 years of age and older depending upon their height and their ability to swim.
No child under the age of 12 is allowed to enter the pool/pit area unless accompanied by an adult (18 yrs).
Please keep glass containers out of the pit area; this includes wine bottles and beer bottles in coolers.
Please no rough play in or around the swimming area. Adults have to restrain from playing with kids in and/or out of the water. Not only is it very dangerous for that particular child, it also puts other children in harms way and interferes with those wanting to relax in and near the water.
(Rules & Regulations)
Please do not use profanities and discuss inappropriate subjects in the campground or swimming area. Most people, and certainly not children should be subject to such talk.
All visitors, adult and children, must be accompanied by a registered adult campsite owner.
17. Quiet Time 11:00p.m. To 9:00a.m.
Campers including visitors must respect your neighbors. Even during the daytime campers must respect their neighbors by not having their music, voices and any other noises too loud. From 11:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. please keep your voices lower and turn off your music. We know some people forget or don’t realize how loud they are but at night the noise seems to travel further and will disturb many people.
Campers not adhering to the Quiet Time or causing a disturbance or presenting inappropriate or illegal behavior on or off your campsite will be given one warning. Visitors will be asked to leave immediately. After the first warning, campers will be required to sign a lease agreement whereby they will be confirming that they understand and agree to the campground “Terms and Conditions”. The second instance, even if the same day or evening will result in you being asked to move your trailer and structures off the premises within 5 days with no refund of the seasonal rent. If any rent amount is outstanding, there will be no second warning, we will ask the owner to move the trailer and structures off within 5 days. If the owner fails to move the trailer and structures within the 5 days, we will arrange for the trailer and structures to be moved and stored off site at the owner’s expense. We have had confirmation from our legal solicitors that we have the right to do this.
If you are bothered by loud noises, especially after 11 p.m., please do not hesitate to contact us at our house, regardless of the time of night, and we will assess the situation and deal with it. We do ask campers to use common sense.
