Campground Policies

Need to Know

Please note that the following policies are subject to change at any time. 

Seasonal camping fees

The basic seasonal charge covers usage of your site and other facilities by you, your spouse and children under 19. Others may be included on your registration form but additional charges will apply. For example, others may purchase a day use seasonal pass for $85 plus HST per family or an overnight seasonal pass for $140 plus HST per family. Ask at the store for details. Seasonal fees are for the period Victoria Day long weekend in May to Thanksgiving long weekend in October.

1. Each seasonal fee includes 1 trailer only per site
2. An additional tent can be put up on your site for short term use but it must be taken down when you are not present
3. To reserve your site a deposit of 50% of the annual rental fee is due by March 15th each year
4. Balance in full is due by May 15th
5. Overdue accounts are subject to a 2% charge per month along with a $10.00 administration fee

Seasonal campsites must be actively used which means that they must be opened up by June 1st each year (e.g., tarps removed, campsites cleaned and organized) and closed (e.g., winterized, items stowed away) by October 15th of each year. And they must be maintained throughout the season. 

Campsites that are not actively used will be considered inactive and the seasonal campsite privileges may be revoked. 


All visitors must stop at the store and register before entering. If you wish to pay the registration fee for your visitors then please make arrangements at the store. Remember, you are responsible for your guests and if they do not register and pay the fee then you will be required to do so. Please remind them and ask them if they had registered. The fee is $7/adult per day or $14.00/person for overnight stays.

Winter storage and trailer usage

1. Winter storage charges are for your camping trailer and one boat if you choose. 
2. Additional charges will apply to additional trailers $175.00/season and additional boats $35.00/season.

Seasonal campsite use

Seasonal campsites must be active and used throughout the season. This means that the campsite must be opened up when the park opens each year (e.g., tarps removed, campsite lawns raked and organized) by June 1st, and closed when the park is closing each year (e.g., winterize trailers, store items away for the winter months) by October 15th. 

Sites that are not actively in use will be considered inactive and the seasonal site may be revoked. 

Boat fee

1. Boat fees are for the use of the boat launch only. Shore line docking is allowed in the boat launch area but please give right away to the established campers. It is best to trailer your boat and return it to your site if possible.
2. During winter months your boat must be stored at your campsite and not in the boat launch area.

Additions, storage sheds and decks


Established additions are charged an annual fee. No other additions are allowed.

Storage sheds are not to exceed 8 ft. x 6 ft. and must be constructed from new building material. All decks must be built using new lumber. No pallets allowed.

All dogs must be kept on a leash and are not allowed in the beach or playground areas at any time.

If you own a dog, you must fill out a Dog Registration form and return it to the store. Please clean up after them.

Firewood and campfires

1. Due to the possibility of introducing foreign insects onto our property we cannot allow the bringing in of your own firewood, pallets or other scrap wood products.
2. Firewood is available to purchase at the store. The nearby forest is private property and the taking of wood products from these areas is not allowed. You can purchase your wood by the cord if you desire and delivery to your site will be arranged. Please place all wood orders one week in advance if possible. Cash and Carry of bundled wood is available at the store during open hours. All campfires must be completely extinguished before leaving your site and please do not leave campfires unattended.

2. We can only accept normal household garbage and no other items.
3. Please recycle and check at the store for recycling information

Site maintenance and neatness

1. Lawn and site maintenance on your lot is your responsibility. Park staff will cut grass on any uncut sites and you will be charged accordingly.
2. All items on your site are to be stored either in your trailer or in an approved storage shed. If you don’t use it then take it home.

Annual inspections will be done and you will given a notice to remove these surplus items.

Selling your trailer

Please remember that your trailer, along with all items on your campsite, are yours and you are responsible for them when you choose to end your seasonal camping with us. This applies regardless of where/how the trailer and items were purchased (i.e., if you purchase an existing trailer in our park on a site from a previous owner, you acquire all of the items on that site and they are your responsibility to be removed from the park). Be aware that none of the sites are permanent, and it is your responsibility to remove all additions, decks, sheds, roofs and other existing items when you leave.

If you would like to sell your trailer and END your time as a Seasonal Camper with us:

  • Your trailer and all site contents must be removed from the park. This includes all additions, sheds, decks etc.
  • You can not place your trailer for sale in the park or advertise it for sale without informing the park staff and confirming that all contents will be removed from the park upon sale.
  • Seasonal fees must be paid in full and your account in good standing.
  • Even though the trailer is for sale, the seasonal fees still apply, and must be paid as long as the trailer remains on the site.

If you would like to sell your trailer and REMAIN a Seasonal Camper with us:

  • Please contact us to let us know you will be replacing your trailer.
  • Please note the trailer you are bringing in to the park must be approved by the park management and must be in good condition and a newer model (priority is for trailers 10 years old or newer but accommodation can be made for trailers that are in good condition).

Age of Trailers

The age and condition of trailers being brought to the park for seasonal campsites are important, as older trailers have lead to issues including site abandonment in the past. As such, newer trailers are being prioritized (e.g., 10 years old or newer) and all trailers must be approved by park management before they are brought in to the park.


Absolutely no firearms allowed on the property. This includes BB and pellet guns, or anything that may be mistaken for a real firearm.

Picnic Tables
