Rules for Campground Etiquette and Enjoyment
Welcome to one of the Inland Northwest Council Campgrounds. We hope your stay with us will be relaxing and enjoyable. We’ve prepared this document to clarify our position on behaviors that will assure you have the best camping experience possible. Rules and policies stated herein should be interpreted and used with basic common sense. This is NOT meant to limit your camping experience but to make everyone aware of the do’s and don’ts of camping etiquette and to assure safety to all concerned.
The undersigned (Here-after referred to as “Camper” or “Visitor”) agrees that the following Rules and Regulations shall govern the Camper and any Visitor’s occupancy of a camping site or cabin at the Campground whether the occupancy shall be on a Transient or Seasonal basis. It is agreed that any breach by the Camper or the Camper’s guest of these Rules and Regulations shall constitute grounds for immediate action or eviction from the Campground with no refund of fees. These rules may be amended from time to time in a reasonable fashion. It is the registered Camper’s responsibility to review these Rules and Regulations and share them with everyone on their site. By accepting and paying for a site reservation, all Campers agree to abide by all rules and regulations as follows. Copies are available on our website or at the Campground Office.
ADULT SUPERVISION – Campers/Parents/Guardians are responsible for the safety and behavior of their children, friends of their children, and their guests at all times.

All pets must be registered, and the owner must have copies of the current Rabies Certificate with them and available if requested by the Office. All pet litter must be picked up immediately. Campers who do not pick up after their pets will be asked to leave - with NO refunds. No exceptions. No pets are allowed in the Store or dining facilities. Pets are not to be left unattended or allowed to roam freely at any time. Barking or growling dogs will not be tolerated. On a complaint of noise, one warning will be issued.

The volume level for all stereos, radios, TV, instruments or other noise-making devices must be at a minimum during this time. Gauge: If you can hear it from outside your camper, it’s too loud! Please lower voices after 10:00 PM during quiet hours, remember, your voice carries. Any conversations, joke-telling, storytelling, laughter, etc. shall be kept to a low volume to not bother other campers. During non-quiet hours the Registered Camper or guest shall not operate any radio, stereo, TV, instruments, or other noise-making devices at such an unreasonable volume level to be a disturbance to any other campers. Electric bug lights/bug zappers must be turned off during quiet hours.
RESTROOMS/SHOWERS – To avoid accidents or injury in these areas, it is requested that an adult accompany children under 8 years of age to all restrooms/showers.
SEWER HOOKUPS – Some sites have a sewer hookup for Recreational Vehicles. Instructions for proper use are available at the camp office. All campers shall use toilet paper designed for recreational vehicles so that paper clogs can be avoided. Allow your tanks to fill up to ¼ full to allow solids to “float”. Gate valves must not be left open on the black water tank until you are ready for purging. An open gate valve on your gray water tank could result in foul and hazardous septic odors (methane gas) outside and may end up inside your camper. Do not dispose of paper towels, clothing, sanitary napkins, grease, dog feces, rocks, food scraps, or anything that is not human waste or dishwater in the sewer system. Any plumbing issues caused by the camper will be corrected at the camper's expense.
SELF CONTAINED CAMPERS AND MOTORHOMES – May be assessed a $20 sewer fee for initial dumping on arrival. This initial sewer fee will be waived if the registered camper demonstrates that the black water holding tank is empty on arrival / BEFORE connection.

TRASH – All trash must be removed from all sites and areas used within the campgrounds. Campers are asked to clean up after themselves and maintain the integrity of our outdoor environment. The trash receptacles and dumpsters in the campgrounds are for campground use only. Please do not bring in outside waste and put it in our dumpsters.
TREES – Do not cut, trim, strip, nail, or damage trees or vegetation in any way. All landscaping elements (trees, flowers, shrubs, stones, fencing, etc.) remains the property of the Campground. If any landscaping element is creating a problem in its location or growth, please inform management who may approve altering the element. We may, at our discretion, provide you a credit for work you've done to your site. Please see management.
