Upgrading Trailer – If you have upgraded to a new trailer( trailer must be 2005 and up), make sure the trailer will fit onto your site, then make arrangements with the company you purchased the trailer from to place the trailer on your site and in the proper place within the lot lines. A Grounds Staff person must be present when trailers are being set up. This must also be done during staff working hours. Prior notice to delivery is required. If you buy a trailer within the park and change owners it is no longer grandfathered in.
New Incoming Seasonals– Trailers must be 2005 and up. All Seasonal trailers that are older than 2005 in the park prior to 2021 are grandfathered in.
Fees – All fees are to be paid on time. Spring fees are due on the first opening day of the new season. Payments can be made at the office during business hours or by E-transfer. If you need to make special arrangements for payment, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to do so BEFORE payment deadlines.

It is your responsibility to notify management in person, by phone, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org of not returning for the following season no later than MAY 1st; Trailer, deck, and personal belongings must be removed no later than May 14th so the site can be rented, cleaned, and readied for new incoming seasonal.
All seasonals are required to pay seasonal payments before or by end of the opening day. Any seasonals that decide after opening day and after the seasonal fee is paid: to leave on your own accord for no valid reason once the season has started no refund will be given.
If payment is not received by the opening day or payment plan or extensions have not been paid or approved by end of the opening day; maintenance will shut water and electricity to the seasonal site until payment or alternative approval is paid and approved. If payment or alternative approval is not paid or approved in a week (seasonal responsibility) an eviction will be issued and the site will be given to another seasonal on the internal or external waitlist.
A seasonal deposit of $150(non-refundable) is required by September 15th every season to hold your site for the following season. All sites without a deposit paid will be made available for purchase for current/new seasonal campers. This is only to hold the site so it will not be rented to a new incoming seasonal and does not entitle you to stay until the remainder is due if you are not returning. All seasonals leaving must give notice by May 1st each year by email or verbally in person/phone. Once notice/new site is offered and accepted; the site will be put up for rent. Once rented by a new/existing seasonal you will not be able to change your mind and request to keep the site.
