If you are leaving the park, please turn off your water. If you come to your trailer and the water has been turned off and hose disconnected, it will be because it was leaking. Please replace your hose.

Keep it Clean, Keep it Green Do your part to help Mother Earth! Reduce, reuse, recycle! We try our best to keep the campground clean, please pick up any garbage you see. Make sure you are putting everything in the correct bins by reading the labels attached to them. Recyclable objects go in the blue bins and non-recyclable objects go in the garbage. Please do not put bags of garbage into the recycle bin.
Seasonal Camper's invited Visitors As of Friday we will be allowing you to have overnight visitors to your site. You must notify the office that they will be spending the night inside of your trailer. No tents are permitted on site, so consider carefully if you can properly accommodate extra people inside your trailer. Say no, if you do not have the room for extra people. It is up to you to advise your guests on the rules of the campground. You are responsible for your visitors. The cost is $10/person/night. Your day visitors must arrive before 8pm (no admittance after 8pm) and must be gone by 11pm. We will continue to ask your visitors two questions at the gate 1) which site they are going to 2) are they expected by you.
Rules This is a reminder that it is your responsibility to educate yourself on the rules in the campground. Click Here to view the rules.
Rule Reminder We would like to start our reminder by highlighting a specific line from our rules: Abusive language or profanity will not be tolerated. Now, for this weeks rule reminder... Golf Carts. Golf Carts are a privilege, not a right. The same rules that apply for motor vehicles on our roads and highways do apply in our campground. Golf Carts can be a fun vehicle if driven properly and leisurely, but a hazard if driven carelessly.
Solo drivers must have a valid G2 or G driver’s license. Young drivers must produce proof of this if asked. Drivers with a beginner’s license must be with a G license holder at all times.
Adult campers without a license, but still able to safely drive a cart, may do so at The Park's discretion.
No alcohol. No smoking or vaping. No driving while under the influence of alcohol, cannabis or drugs.
Speeding, racing and cart overload is dangerous and not permitted. Cart max speed is 15Km/hr. The maximum number of riders will equal the number of seats.
Screaming, hollering, abusive language and boisterous behaviour will not be tolerated. No radios or speakers are to be used on golf carts.
Shortly after 11pm, golf carts must be back on The Occupant’s site and stay there until 8am the next morning.
Each cart must have front and rear lights if driven after dusk. Each cart must have The Occupant’s site number, at least 3” tall on each side of the cart. Each cart must be properly insured with a copy of proof of liability insurance given to office. Only electric golf carts are allowed.
Hydro Invoices Hydro invoices were sent out. Please let us know if you did not receive yours. The Ontario Electric rebate was applied to your hydro bill. Late charges will apply if not paid by July 25th.
