Sewer connections MUST have good seals with absolutely no leaks in the hose apparatus. This is a health and safety hazard. Neglect will not be tolerated. You will be asked to replace the hoses or please leave the park. We also ask that you have all hoses neatly placed so that they are out of the way of lawn maintenance, of which includes elevating your sewer connection. We will not replace sewer hoses that are inadvertently hit by the weed eater due to neglect of your hoses.
Ground disposal of any drain water (gray or black) is prohibited. Wastewater from RVs (including sink water) must be disposed of into sewer drains. Do not put grease down the sewer.

If the balance is not paid within a week of the 5-day grace period (day 12), you will be asked to leave.
LONG-TERM STAY: We only accept RVs that are less than 10 years old and/or are in good working and aesthetic order (see paragraph below on appearance and maintenance). You will be asked to send pictures for approval or acceptance of any RV older than 10 years. The approval will be at the manager’s discretion.

Long-term RV residents are responsible for the exterior maintenance of their RVs. These must be cleaned regularly to maintain their appearance. RVs that become dilapidated and show their age and no longer comply to the general appearance of others in the park will be required to leave at the discretion of the management.
Vehicles that are inoperable CANNOT be “parked” at your site or on the park property. No working on your vehicle on-site without management approval.
FREEZING TEMPERATURE GUIDELINES: If the temperatures are going to be dropping below freezing, we will be turning everyone’s water off AT YOUR CAMPER in prep for the freezing temps. So, if you arrive, and have no water, that’s likely what is going on! Also, if you are leaving for any extended period, please turn your water off. Insulated spigot covers MUST be left in place throughout winter until the last chance of freeze passes in spring. Failure to follow all guidelines, instructions, etc. concerning freezing temperatures and water spigots, etc. that result in damage to any campground property will result in a $75 fine to the guest who ignored said guidelines.
