Each site is fully serviced with electrical, water and sanitary connections (must be airtight) and also comes with a firepit, picnic table and a lawn area complete with underground irrigation system.

For the benefit of the lawn, all mats, screw-in dog leads and closed bottomed tents are to be placed on the gravel portions of the site only.

Up to two pets per site are welcome and may join you inside the RV, however damages resulting from pets will be invoiced against the deposit. Any evidence of smoking or pet waste in the rental unit will result in an automatic charge of $200 against the deposit.

After you check in, a resort staff member will guide you through a brief orientation on the use and enjoyment of the site and rental unit—please expect this orientation to last from 15 minutes up to one half hour. A guest's manual will be provided for reference of specific details including expected and acceptable operation of the rental unit and site.
