We promote the use and enjoyment of campfires. With guidelines: Must be contained in the fire ring. Maximum 3 feet high. NO bonfires. No burning of trash or pallets with nails. We clean fire pits. Broken glass, nails, debris, etc will result in an additional fee. No fires shall be left unattended and must be extinguished before retiring or leaving the site.

Please NO smoking in the Pool or Play Ground area or in any building, rental camper, cabin or gatherings where children are present. Thank you
Deposits / Payments / Refunds
Deposits are due at registration to lock in the date and / or site. Payments are to be paid in full 2 weeks prior to arrival. Refunds subject to $10 cancellation per KOA Reservation / Cancellation Guideline. Notice deadlines: 48 hours for site rentals, 7 days for Cabins or Rental Units. Why 2 weeks prior to arrival? Here's our reasoning: Most folks check in between 4:30 pm and 6:30 pm. Say we have 40 check-ins on Friday. If you are number 18 in line waiting to check in you won't be happy. If the stay is paid in full it's a matter of handing you a welcome packet and escort to your site. Five minutes and you are setting up! Not to worry, the refund policy still applies. Everybody wins. 10% KOA Value Kard Rewards discount available to all Value Kard holders. Call for info. For seasonal campers, all fees are due and payable per terms of Rental Agreement. Late payments will apply.

Meters - Choice 50 / 30 / 20 amps
All sites have electric meters. Refrigerators, electric heaters, air conditioners, party lights, etc all use electricity. We suggest using these high-energy consumption units to a minimum. Even with nothing on, when plugged in, your inverter is consuming electricity. The basic usage of 60 KWH per week is included in the weekly rental. Campers that run their air conditioners with windows and doors open because it's "included" will be charged for excess usage. Excess usage will be multiplied by the going rate published at the Office and will be charged to the camper at checkout.
Parties / Gatherings
Family gatherings are fun! We encourage family gatherings although they must be maintained at a level that is not disturbing to the neighboring sites. A gathering of 8 people or more must register at the office to discuss your plans. The Rec Hall and picnic area is available to those who reserve the dates. Assistance with the facilities, grills, food or planning activities can be discussed at the Office. We can cater your event and even provide music. Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. One call does it all!

Quiet Hours 10 pm to 8 am
Quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. The quality of rest and relaxation is important to all campers so please refrain from loud noises and disturbances during this period. All stereos, radios, TV, instruments or other noise-making devices must be turned off during this time and voices kept to a whisper. Gauge: If you can hear it as I walk by it’s too loud! Please lower voices after 10 PM. Remember, your voice carries. Any conversations, joke telling, story telling, laughter etc. shall be kept to a low volume to not bother other campers. During non-quiet hours the Registered Camper or guest shall not operate any radio, stereo, TV, instruments or other noise-making device at such an unreasonable volume level to be a disturbance to any other campers. BUG LIGHTS – BUG ZAPPERS - Electric bug lights / bug zappers must be turned off during quiet hours. AREA FLOOD LIGHTS must be off during quiet hours to not bother the neighbors.
Recycle / Trash / Electronics / Metals
Cameras monitor the disposal of trash by campers. DO NOT BRING TRASH FROM HOME. Trash and Recycle Dumpsters are located at the bottom of the hill across from boat parking and adjacent to the propane fill station. WE RECYCLE – Single sort system The RECYCLE dumpster is for Newspaper, corrugated cardboard, returnable cans and bottles, white plastic milk and water containers. The TRASH dumpster is labeled TRASH . Household trash only generated here while you camp. DO NOT BRING TRASH FROM HOME. Trash is a major expense for us. Help us keep it to a minimum. Metals and electronics like stereos and TVs go in the green wooden box. See Con for details or more info. Please RECYCLE and join us in being responsible stewards of our environment.
Sewer / Gray Water / Tank Valves
State law prohibits the discharge of gray water or black water (sewer) on the ground or stored in containers. The Camper agrees that he / she shall not cause or allow black water or gray water to be emptied on the ground. Sink water or dishwater must be emptied in the sink outside the bathhouse or in the dump station. All sites have a sewer connection. Please use appropriately. Many folks leave their gray water (sinks and tub) valves open when connected to our sewer hookup. Although this practice is convenient it's not healthy. When this valve is open sewer (methane) gasses can travel from our septic system through the valve, into your empty tank and up through the breather pipe exiting your roof. Methane gas is heavy and will settle on your site and sites around you. Not pleasant to say the least. Please keep all valves closed until you are ready to empty your tanks. Do not dispose paper, clothing, sanitary napkins, grease, dog feces, rocks, food scraps, etc in our system. Thanks.
Speed Limit 5 MPH
A maximum speed of 5 miles per hour throughout the campground will be tolerated, including all vehicles, golf carts, bicycles, motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, or any other wheeled method of transportation. Safety is our #1 concern. We have many kids playing in our park. None to spare! Thanks for your consideration.
