RV and Site Standards & Guidelines

Your satisfaction is very important to us. We appreciate that you have chosen to spend your time with us and want to make sure you and all our guests enjoy their stay. With this in mind, we have outlined some basic RV standards and site standards to ensure that we maintain a standard of quality in our resorts and campgrounds.

 

Please note, that these guidelines and examples are not intended to address all possible situations that may arise at a property. Individual campgrounds/resorts may have specific rules/regulations providing specific guidelines relating to their individual properties. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to stop by the management office at your convenience.

 

Most importantly, we hope you enjoy your stay with us!

 

RV Standards

The quality of RVs in a resort or campground can contribute to or detract from the overall experience of all the campers. For this reason, we enforce some standards of appearance on RVs, similar to those in place at many other RV resorts and campgrounds.

 

Our property rules state that “all vehicles must be operable and in good condition.” We think it may be helpful to outline a few examples of what is meant by “good condition.”

Age Limit

Please note that “good condition” does not mean “new,” and we do not typically have an age limit for RVs.

RV Certification

RVs should have RVIA certification. RVIA certification states the rig complies with certain fire codes, which are important. Occasionally, exceptions can be granted by Resort Managers and/or Regional Managers on a case-by-case basis for non-RVIA rigs which seem to conform to safety requirements and are of a design and style compatible with the park. A park model RV, also known as a recreational park trailer, should be certified by the manufacturer and are built in accordance with the ANSI code.

Appearance Guidelines

Overall, the RV should look and function as it was originally designed. While we can’t provide a list including every possible scenario, following are a few examples that should be helpful:

  • Doors, shrouds, panels, windows and coverings, etc. should be intact and not unsightly.
  • Exterior should be not unsightly, and should be free of obvious, poorly-repaired damages.
  • Tarps cannot be used for weatherproofing and awnings should be in good condition.
  • Air conditioning units should not be added through the walls or windows unless previously approved.
  • All hoses, wires, etc. should route through ports as originally designed.
  • Exterior should be free of duct tape, repair tape, excessive caulk, etc.

 

Isolated minor issues are generally acceptable, provided multiple issues aren’t combined to substantially deteriorate the appearance of an RV:

  • Minor body damage which has been properly repaired but is still visible.
  • Fading of decals and/or paint.
  • Minor window cracking, although replacements should be scheduled.
  • Damage from traveling that has just happened, especially if you have a repair plan.

 

Site Standards

We all need to be good neighbors to our fellow campers! No one likes to camp next to a messy site, and a messy campsite can be an open invitation to unwanted wildlife.

Following are some guidelines to help everyone be a good neighbor in the campground:

 

Recreational vs. Residence

For our seasonal or annual campers, we need to remember that your campsite is a recreational site and not a residence.

  • Customers shall use their RV and site for recreational purposes only and shall not use their RV and site as a permanent residence. Length of stay requirements are based on legal requirements and property established guidelines.

Safety Guidelines

  • Campsites should be clean and neat, free of fire hazards and clutter.
  • Customers shall not make any alteration to the electric, water or sewer connections provided by the campground/resort.
  • Customers should adhere to specific legal requirements when connecting to sewer, water and electric services at the campground/resort.
  • Customers should be able to move your rig very quickly in case of emergency.
  • No extra air conditioners, wires, hoses, or cords running except through the OEM port.

Tarps, Tents, Shade Structures, Other Structures

  • Tents and “easy-up”-type structures are for temporary use only, limited to seven days.
  • Manager can approve more substantial, semi-permanent shade structures, in accordance with the individual property guidelines.
  • Only form-fitting bike/car covers are allowed. Carports are prohibited.
  • Please do not use a tarp to cover any part of your RV or campsite.
  • Exterior furnishings should be appropriate for outdoor/camping use. Indoor furnishings including but not limited to, sofas, chairs, refrigerators, freezers and kitchen tables are not allowed on your campsite.
  • Fencing is limited to 24” in height and may be utilized only in the area under the rig awning.
  • The following flags are allowed to be displayed at your site and throughout the campground/resort, American, Canadian, Military, including Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Coast Guard, POW, MIA, and veterans, sports and decorative flags such as holiday, seasonal or garden.

Pets

  • No more than two (2) common household pets (e.g., cats and dogs) may be kept on any site. No other animals, livestock, poultry, reptiles or insects of any kind shall be kept on any site.
  • No dangerous, aggressive or poisonous pets of any kind are permitted.
  • Management reserves the right to reject any pet.
  • All pets must be registered with the office and vaccination records must be available upon request.
  • All pets must wear a collar identifying the owner and phone number and all pets must be on a leash at all times.
  • No pet shall be left tied or otherwise unattended at any time.
  • Pet owners must clean up after their pets.
  • Pets are not permitted in the public buildings or amenity areas, including but not limited to the bathrooms, clubhouse, swimming pool and beach areas.
  • Pets should not be an annoyance (barking continually), or a danger to the other occupants or visitors of the campground.
  • The campground shall have no liability to family members or guests for any damage or injury to persons or property caused by any pet.

Noxious Activities

  • No illegal, noxious or offensive activities shall be conducted at any site, nor shall anything be done within the campground which is or could become an unreasonable annoyance or nuisance to neighboring sites.
  • We will not tolerate abusive or disruptive behavior whether directed at management, staff or other persons.
  • Smoking is not permitted in any of our buildings, including restrooms, pool areas and rental units. Smoking material must be extinguished in an appropriate fire container.
  • The open consumption of alcoholic beverages is discouraged in the family areas of the campground/resort. Where permitted, alcoholic beverages must be kept in a concealed container. Under no circumstances will minors, as determined by state and local law, be served or allowed to consume alcoholic beverages at the campground/resort.

Disorderly Persons

  • The following are grounds for reservation termination and removal from the property: loud noise, whether mechanical, musical or vocal, use of foul or indecent language, causing damage to property of the campground or another person, drunken disorderly conduct, failing to follow rules, failing to follow directions of the property staff, threatening or abusive behavior or any other conduct that is not the type of behavior that is expected at a family campground/resort.

Damage

  • Customers are responsible for all damage or destruction of property, and any injury to persons, caused by the guest or his or her family, visitor or pets. We reserve the right to charge guests accordingly for any damage they cause to the grounds and/or campground/resort facilities, including but not limited to broken waterlines, damaged/missing sewer connections, cable lines, landscaping, and excessive debris (bottle caps, zip ties, cigarette butts, etc.).
