No boats in the swimming area. Please clean out any of your trash when returning rental boats, and replace all life jackets and oars. Personal boats may be kept at your site or locked/stored at the far side of the fishing walkway.

Sites: Cutting or destroying trees or branches is forbidden. Do not bring untreated firewood from out-of-state or outside of a 50-mile radius into the campground or take firewood from other sites. Firewood deliveries are not permitted; firewood can be purchased from the on-site camp store. Roaring fires are not allowed. Do not move fireplaces or take picnic tables from your site. Sewer collars must be used on sewer hookups. Garbage should not be left in your firepit. Do not leave any food out overnight, in order to discourage any unwelcome forest visitors.

Pets: Up to 2 dogs per site are allowed. They must be quiet, kept on a leash, and you must clean up after your dog. They are not allowed in the common areas which include the bathhouse, store, playground, basketball court, and the beach area. We may prohibit or require removal from the campground any dog we consider a problem or who poses a risk to campers. Rabies certificate(s) need to be presented. Pets should not be left unattended, particularly inside any of the rental units.

Bathhouse/Toilets & Sewers: Please do not pour grease down your camper drains, and do not put anything other than other human waste and toilet paper down the toilet (no paper towels/wipes); our septic system cannot handle it.

Garbage: The dumpster is located at the far exit of the campground. Please recycle corrugated cardboard, glass, plastic, and cans in the recycle bin(s) by the dumpster; do not place recycling in plastic bags. Do not leave garbage/litter at your site or the bathhouse; utilize appropriate outdoor receptacles. Any items, such as chairs, tires, rugs, batteries, paint cans, etc. need to be taken with you for disposal.

Smokers: Please do not throw your butts on the ground. Properly dispose of all smoking material. There is ABSOLUTELY no smoking in any of the rental accommodations; a $100 cleaning fee will be assessed for noncompliance.

Fishing: Well-fed large and small-mouth bass, bluegill, pickerel, bullhead and sunnies inhabit the lake. No live bait, other than worms, is allowed. No fishing is allowed in the swimming area. Unless you eat what you catch, all fishing is catch and release. Don’t leave dead fish in the lake, at your site, or unbagged in the dumpster.

Insurance: You should insure your trailer, its contents, and any carts. We are not liable for any damage or theft. This includes any damage from trees or limbs which might fall, or damage which might occur if we move your trailer for you. Trailers and/or carts can be added to your auto insurance for a nominal fee.

Miscellaneous: We do not tolerate improper language, behavior, or dress. Use of fireworks or firearms is strictly forbidden. You are responsible for the behavior of your children and visitors.
