Guides for Good Camping
VISITORS: ANYONE not registered with you at time of check in is a visitor and needs to register in our office BEFORE going into the campground. Fees apply. Campers are responsible for their guests. Visitor hours are 9AM till 10 PM. Please ask your visitors ONLY to park in the visitor parking area. Any visitor who leaves within an hour will be eligible for full refund of the visitor’s fee. No visitor’s pets allowed.
QUIET TIME: 10pm to 8am. However you should be considerate of your neighbors at all times. If your neighbor is too noisy, tell them about it nicely. If that does not work, tell us about it nicely. Call us on the night phone or from your cell phone 518-946-7733.

SKATEBOARDING, SCOOTERS or ROLLERBLADING: Prohibited on our property due to insurance regulations.
FIRES & FIREWOOD: Firewood can be purchased at the store. Our trees are precious to us and our future. Even dead or broken branches are important to the ecology of the Adirondacks and should be left alone. DO NOT CUT OR CHOP ANY TREE, DEAD OR ALIVE. No gathering of firewood. $100+ fine for any damage to trees. Make fires inside fireplaces ONLY! Do not move the fire ring. Fire height reasonalble (knee high or lower). All fires must be extinguished before retiring.
Buy it where you burn it! In compliance with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation regulations, transport of firewood from out of state and more than 50 miles away is no longer permitted, due to invasive insect infestations (the Emerald Ash Bore, in particular). These infestations originate in firewood and then necessitate the clearing of large tracks of forests. Firewood must now be purchased locally in the Adirondacks.
SEWER DISCHARGE: New York law prohibits the drainage of sink or shower water on ground. Please use dump stations. SEWER DONUTS or ELBOWS are mandatory for all sewer hook ups
PETS: Quiet dogs under control and on a leash are welcome at campsites. Please be considerate. CLEAN UP after your pet. Do not leave your pet unattended. No pets allowed in any building, on our boats or at our pools.
