We have a 6’ leash restriction when walking your pet and you will be able to enjoy the dog park and the pet swimming areas. See those locations on the map. Please note, to be considerate of allergies no pets are allowed in any rental units. We also do not allow aggressive breeds in the park such as Pit bulls and Rottweiler’s.

We love our campfire, are we allowed campfires?

Yes! Campfires are permitted but we ask due to the Emerald Ash Borer please do not bring firewood into the park. Wood is available from the Rec Hall office. We also encourage you to practice your classic campfire songs such as “There’s a hole in my bucket”.

Is there sewer on the sites or do I have to use a dump station?

With exception of the tent sites all sites do have sewer hookups on the site. We do also have dump stations within the park.

Can I request a certain site or area?

You may but unfortunately, we will not guarantee a specific site. We will take your request and work to get you that site or one within close proximity but this may not always be possible. Please note, you will not receive your site number before arrival.

How do I get in after the office is closed?

You can get a gate card to re-enter the park. If you are arriving late simply call and we will greet you when you arrive.

We may be able to accommodate early check in/ late checkout if requested in advance and accommodation is available. If site is available, for early check in or late check out fees will apply.

Can I have a golf cart at the park?

Due to the many families who use the park, golf carts are not allowed for safety reasons. Campers with mobility issues are welcome to use scooters for navigating the Park. Be sure to pack bicycles and helmets for the kids as there are lots of opportunities to ride on the bike paths, trails and paved sections of the park. Please note lights are required after dusk on your bike.

Can I get a refund if the weather isn’t great?

As much as we’d love to control the weather, we just haven’t mastered that yet. Refunds are not available due to early departures or inclement weather but check out our events page which has more than a few rainy-day activities ideas!
