WINTER STORAGE:Without reservation of a site for the following year, or purchase of Winter Storage the Occupant will be required to move everything from their site (trailer, shed, deck & debris) by the end of the last full weekend in October. Management has the right to remove anything from the site after that date and charge the Occupant for the moving and storage expense.

SITES: Are designed for recreational use of one trailer and one “family unit” (“family unit” for these purposes includes: occupant(s), children & spouses, parents, grandchildren and grandparents).

Just as Hydro One has advised us, we would like to advise you, our camper:

“Power Interruptions and Surges

From time to time, events beyond our control can cause power interruptions or voltage irregularities. Therefore, we cannot guarantee a continuous or constant supply of power and will not be liable for any damages caused by a lack of power, or a power outage or surge.  Also, planned interruptions to your electricity service do occur. While we try to provide you with advance notice of such interruptions, we may be unable to do so; and in such situations, the interruptions will proceed as planned. We aren't liable for any damages caused by such planned outages.”

CAMPSITE CARE:(grass cutting & orderliness) is the responsibility of the Occupant unless otherwise arranged through Holiday Park.  If not kept up to Holiday Park standards and the occupant is informed of necessary corrections and fails to comply, Holiday Park will complete all work necessary and bill accordingly for said work. The Occupant must first receive a Construction and Alteration request form prior to making any changes to your campsite.  i.e.: tree planting or cutting, decks, sheds, fencing or any other alterations to the Lot.

Proof of insurance is required for a PMD.

CAMPFIRES: Shall be burned in a fire ring only.  Fires shall not be of a size greater than the fire ring so as to pose any risk, and must not be left unattended while burning at any time.

Management may curtail fires during dry or windy periods for safety reasons. Firewood that comes from an area that is infected with any type of disease which is harmful to trees is not allowed in the park.

PETS: All pets must be on a leash or in your unit, quiet, and cleaned up after at all times in accordance with the Dog Owners Liability Act DOLA. There is a two (2) pet limit per site in our Parks for all campers.  (Some sites are grandfathered until attrition brings situation into conformity).  Pit bulls, Rottweilers, and any other aggressive breeds or dogs of any kind are not allowed in the park - even a Chihuahua could be deemed aggressive. Failure to comply could result in termination of occupancy license. Pets are not allowed on or around the playgrounds or in the pool or jump pillow area.

REPAIRS: We do not permit oil changes, mechanical repairs, etc. on vehicles to be done on site.

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES:Discreet and responsible use is allowed on campsites. Use of alcohol in all other areas such as horseshoe pits, playgrounds, roadways, store and recreational hall is contrary to “Provincial Law” and “Holiday Park Policy”. Unfortunately a beer bottle in a “koozie” or wine in a wine glass is still blatantly obvious open alcohol in the eyes of the law, and we must react accordingly. Public display of obvious intoxication will be dealt with as necessary.

QUIET TIME:Shall be observed from 11 pm to 9 am daily. At all times Occupants are expected to consider their neighbour's and management's sensitivities, consistent with our quiet family camping concept. All noise emitting devices must be turned off by 11:00 pm. i.e. radios, ipods, etc.  Constant or Excessive loud noise is not allowed at anytime.  In consideration of your fellow campers, we ask that any work requiring power tools, excessive hammering or banging and/or repetitive noise, be done between the hours of 9:00a.m & 5:00p.m., Monday through Friday

CHILDREN:Their conduct and safety is the total responsibility of their parents. All children are to be on their campsite by 10:00p.m. and on a campsite by dark; not in the playground, woods and/or common areas.  Children 12 & under should be under adult supervision at all times. CFSA Section 79(3) states “No person having charge of a child less than 16 yrs. of age shall leave the child without making provision for his or her supervision and care that is reasonable in the circumstances.” Children 12 and under must be supervised by an adult (over 19) when at the pool. As with the rules outside the property, parents are responsible for ensuring their children under16 years of age wear a helmet when biking in the park.

ENVIRONMENT:The harming, cutting, removal of trees, plants, earth, or park wildlife is not acceptable. Rocks, stones and wood are not to be moved or removed.  We appreciate everyone’s contribution in keeping our park beautiful and free from cigarette butts, candy wrappers, etc.

A replacement card fee of $20.00 will be charged should the card become lost or damaged beyond use while in the Occupant's possession. Gate cards are not to be shared with family and friends, doing so will be cause for eviction.

VISITORS:All visitors will be required to register at the office before being admitted into the park. There is a daily & nightly fee for visitors; there is a seasonal pass available for extended family members or friends, which allows a maximum of 2 adults and their immediate, dependent children still living at home.

In no event shall any waiver be deemed to be a continuing waiver.
