What can I put on my CAMPSITE?
Our campsites are designed for just one family. They are priced for 2 adults and up to 4 children. We allow a maximum of 8 people per site, (not including daily visitors) and of that 8, no more than 4 can be adults.
You must have camping equipment (designed specifically for camping) on your site. Absolutely no camping in vans or other vehicles. The maximum amount of equipment allowed on your site is 3 units, only one of which can be a trailer. The size of your camping equipment and the campsite may reduce the amount of equipment allowed.

Sites that have just 20amp electric service (all sites in the West, some in the North and East) do not provide you with enough power to safely use air conditioners and heaters. Your appliances may be damaged if used, and it will also effect the electric service provided to your neighbors.
