Please read this contract carefully. It contains rule changes
and clarifications that are mandatory. By paying your dues you automatically
agree to abide by these rules. We reserve the right to refuse services to
campers who break the rules.
2. “Campers” are customers and their legal dependants.
These rules are intended to restrict use of the premises to registered campers
and keep their stay enjoyable.
- “Guests” are people who accompany campers during
their stay on the premises. Camper’s children over age 21 are guests.
- “Management” is Steve and Jackie Herrick, their heirs
- Campers must abide by the following rules at all
times or may be required to leave the premises for a period to be
determined by the management up to the balance of the time paid for. No
refund will be made if campers are not allowed to use the premises due to
- Guests may use all facilities but must be accompanied
by the inviting camper at all times. Campers are responsible for the
conduct of their guests; a rule infraction by a guest is a rule infraction
by the camper who invited him.
7. If a guest stays overnight on your site you are
responsible to pay one half the regular camping fee. You may collect the fee
from your guest or pay it yourself, however, you are responsible to collect
payment and turn it in at the office. If I must collect payment it will be at
full price. If guests use a separate campsite they will pay full price.
- We advertise a quiet place to relax and intend to
keep it that way. Some noise is unavoidable and must be tolerated
by all campers, however a quiet campground is desired and your cooperation
in keeping noise under control is required. If another camper asks that a
radio or other noise be turned down it is too loud. Loud mufflers on any
vehicle will not be tolerated. Quiet time is from 11:00 P.M. to 6:00 A.M.
daily and all music, loud talking, or other noise must stop during those
hours. Sound travels and reverberates easily here so be considerate of
others and keep your music and voice to a whisper.
No motorized vehicles except golf carts are allowed on the
premises at any time. No one without a valid driver’s license is allowed to
operate golf carts. All golf carts must be insured for a minimum of $100,000
liability per occurrence. Campers must provide a copy of insurance
documentation and a waiver of liability must be signed and submitted to
management before the cart is operated on the property.
- Please observe proper sewer use practices. Do not put
anything but sewage and toilet paper in the sewer system. Paper towels,
sanitary products, and food scraps etc. belong in the trash dumpster. They
will plug up the sewer system. Please keep solids from backing up in your
system by keeping your dump door closed until your tank is full. Dump the
full tank then close the door again.
- Pets must be on leash at all times. If you do not
want to confine them leave them at home. Please clean up after your pets.
- If you go anywhere on the property please carry out
your garbage with you.
- Do not exceed limits or fish with more than 2 lines
at once. Jug or trotline fishing is not allowed. Limits per person for
day over 11 inches. Return all under 11 inches to the water.

Bass………..6 per day total. Return
all under 12 inches; keep 12 to 14 inch; return all between 14 and 16 inches

- Campers are responsible for the cost of a gravel
driveway on their site to park their vehicles on. You have rented one
campsite. Park your vehicles on that campsite only. Do not trespass on
others lots, docks or decks without permission. There are plenty of places
to access the lakes without trespassing.
- If you don’t want a gravel driveway don’t take your
car to the site when it is muddy. Do not track mud onto the gravel roads.
You may carefully drive on the dirt roads only when they are dry. If dirt
sticks to your tires it is too wet to drive on the dirt roads. No driving
or parking on other people’s campsite. No driving or parking on the grass
anywhere but your own site when it is dry. No parking on the gravel roads.
If you have more vehicles here than you have room for on your own site
they can be parked in the barnyard near the dumpster.
and non floating docks must have sturdy stabilizing pipes drove into the
lake bottom and attached to the dock to keep the dock stationary. All
docks must have sturdy railings around at least 50 percent of the
perimeter. Steps leading down banks of the lake must have equal risers for
each step and must be at a 45-degree angle or less. Risers must be 8
inches or less. Floats must be plastic. Maximum size is 10 feet by 12
feet. The dock must not be more than 6 feet from the bank. Any dock deemed
unsafe by the management will have an imputed value of zero dollars and
will be destroyed. We will not tolerate unsafe docks or stairs. Ask before
electricity including trolling motor battery recharging must take place in
an area where no 110 volt wire can reach the lake water unless a GFI
circuit breaker is used for power.
or other structures must be mounted on concrete blocks. No holes may be
dug in the ground more than one foot deep. Ground anchors more than 1 foot
long must be located by the management. We have high voltage electric
campsites require a 5-foot setback from the lot lines for any structure.
Nothing may project onto any other lot. Nothing that obstructs the view of
traffic may be placed within 10 feet of roads.
more than 3 feet high may be set or planted within 10 feet of gravel
roads. The only exception is a small sign over 5 feet above the ground
identifying your site. This is to keep traffic in view.
speed limit is 15 MPH MAXIMUM.
campers will have first right to rent available campsites. Then existing
campers will be allowed to rent on a seniority basis. The camper who has
been here the longest continuous time has first choice. (See next rule) If
you want to move to a new site you must register with the management in
writing each spring by April 1 so
we know to keep a site open for you. You will only be notified of new
sites available if you have registered for that year. New campers will be
allowed to rent sites after those on the registered list have had a chance
to rent them. If you do not reserve a site within 14 days of notification
of availability we reserve the right to rent to anyone else.
- If you
are late paying any money owed to the management (rent, electric bill,
mowing, or anything else) by 90 days your seniority stops and is
reinstated at the bottom of the list only when you pay in full.
- If you
are late paying any money owed to the management by 120 days you must move
your property from the premises. If the site is still open after payment
is made in full you may rent the site again.
reserves the right to extend deadlines on a personal basis. Extending a
deadline for one person does not affect these rules for any other person.
- Do not
water landscape (grass, trees or flowers) from the hydrants. I have pumps
available to pump water from the lake for landscape watering. Please put
them back when you are finished.
