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 Alex 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.

Time to pay your deposit: it is due by October 1st, 2019 in the amount of $450.00 + Tax=$508.50. The deposit remains the same as last year. “If full deposit is not received, your site will not be guaranteed for next year” Trailers remaining on not paid site will be removed to a storage facility at the cost to the trailer owner. For the 2020 season, the site fee increased by $75.00.
