Camp Hillbilly Fall Newsletter 2020
On behalf of the new owner John and Manager Brenda we hope you all enjoyed a beautiful Summer, despite the imposed COVID 19 restrictions. It is heartening to witness the responsibility and understanding you have all demonstrated during these trying times. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our new and long-time campers who stayed with us this summer, especially Members of the recreation committee and all the volunteers for making this summer enjoyable for all of us, ( if you are interested in joining our recreation committee) please see one of the members and they will gladly welcome you aboard or see Brenda in the office
We Have decided to delay our closing date, weather permitting, to the end of October. Please keep in touch with Brenda for any and all Park information and updates.
We would like to remind you of some park rules.
Signs: Your site number must be installed on all trailers at eye level on the front of your trailer. Any questions please see Brenda by the end of September. This will ensure we are reading and marking down the correct meter reading for your site, also this will assist emergency responders.
SEASON FEES: As October is quickly approaching, some campers are already making payments towards next season. We are offering 3 different payment options for next year's fees:
- one time payment by October 1 $2,950 + tax = $3333.50
- Three equal payments by oct 1/ Jan 1,/Apr 1 $1127.74 each($3383.22)
- One Time payment by may 1 $3,503 (1st instalment of $900 must be paid by October 1) balance due by May 1 will be $2603.00
If you intend to remove your trailer from the campground, please let us know as soon as possible, so we know which sites are available for next year, maybe people in campground are interesting in buying your shed or deck-we will be happy to help you (no fee is applied).People buying decks or sheds must first ask office -the reason is : not all of the decks or sheds is reusable in the park(example- metal sheds not reusable in the park) ! Your site must be cleaned when you leave. Please bring your gate cards for refund-otherwise they will be deleted from the system and we can not offer refund.
For the upcoming 2021 season we require: Seasonal agreement with proof of your actual address, copy of Liability trailer insurance, email address and current phone numbers. This will assist us if there is any emergency. Without the above copies and information along with the seasonal fee we can not guarantee your site.
Occupants relocating their trailers outside the park for next season must have their sites vacated and restored no later than Thanksgiving Monday 2020 . Any trailers still connected o any of our services and/or occupying a serviced site after Thanksgiving Monday will be subject to paying the full 2021 seasonal fee.
If winter storage in Camp Hillbilly is required, the trailer will be moved to our storage area, a fee of $900 will be payable in advanced and he trailer must be removed from the park by May 1. Any late removals will be invoiced $70 per day.
Anyone wishing to change sites the cost is $300.00 plus tax.
Propane: All expired propane tanks must be removed from the property. This is for your and your neighbour’s safety.
Permission is required from management before digging, adding sheds, building decks, cutting trees or tree branches or any fencing. Any taxes, permit fees or changes resulting from these additions will be the responsibility of the camper.
About the permit: The permit you take from the city must be close- and you have to arrange with the city. For non close permit city charge $175.00 per year until is close.
Leaves: Please do not put brush and used firewood or any other matter with the leaves. The leaves are to be kept separate from all other materials (As employees are injuring their wrists by not expecting hard material with the leaves) One pile of leaves only per site. Thanks for your help.
The Campground closes on October 31 weather permitting, until 3pm 2021, so make sure you make all your closing arrangements before that date. After that you will NOT BE ALLOWED TO COME IN (not even to rake leaves).
We will NOT open for Winter Camping, if you want to come in and check on your trailer arrangements must be made with Brenda 705-994-5355
Trailer Inspection: Trailers that are in a rundown condition or older than 15 years must pass a safety inspection at the cost of the owner, this report must be provided to the office prior to the end of this season.
No cars allowed in park from 31 of October to May 1st
Winterizing: Only use proper plumbing antifreeze for winterizing your trailer. DO NOT USE any other substance to winterize your trailer! This will cause damage to our septic system as well as your holding tank. Your co-operation is crucial.
The second (and last) hydro bill for this season will be available in the store from Sep 15th, 2020, just in time to have it paid before the campground closes.
THE RECREATION COMMITTEE & VOLUNTEERS: A big thank you is in place for our volunteers who helped out with cooking, karaoke, selling tickets, horseshoe, kid’s games, euchre and more. Again, next year we will have our kids around in the summer, so we hope that more volunteers will step forward to help out with the activities or we will not be able to offer some of them any more….
Please commit, even if only for one activity!
