Campground rules based on the contract of the campground with the State of Michigan. You must agree to comply with the rules to attend the retreat.
This is from the owners of the campground:
The Rules'' are for our camp. The State of Michigan has laid out some very plain rules that must be enforced. I could lose my lease if not, so these rules are not negotiable:
Abide by all the laws of the State of Michigan.
No Smoking in any building at any time! (I believe the current law in the State of Michigan enforces a ban on smoking on any State property, and yes. even though I hold the lease. this is State Property).
No dogs or other animals are allowed in any of the buildings at any time. f you bring your pet it will have to be under your direct control at all times (on a leash) and chained or crated outside at night. It would make your vacation, and the vacation of those around you more pleasurable if you made arrangements to have your pet cared for at home while you are here.
Exceptions to rule 3: Personal service dogs/animals (seeing eye dog etc.). Dogs/animals used in presentations for educational purposes.
No tent or RV camping
No motorized vehicles beyond the parking lot.
No high current appliances in the cabins (hot plates, heaters, air conditioners, refrigerators etc.). The electrical circuits in the cabins are designed for a 10 amp load ( 1200 watts). They are intended for a small window fan, radios, clocks etc. If you overload a cabin 's circuit it will blow a fuse.
No cooking in the cabins
No candles, oil lamps or other sources of flame or intense heat in the cabins.
You will not display or sell any pictures, books, magazines or other products that are not approved by the Department Representative (the man who enforces my lease).
No fireworks, firearms, air guns, sling shots or bows and arrows not part of a program or class. The exception to this is during the September 15 through March 31 hunting season , when hunters (those with valid hunting licenses) may legally possess firearms within the camp. No Hunting Within The Camp.
Alcohol. If you are 21 or over, you are allowed to bring your own alcohol for your own personal consumption in moderation. Drunk and /or disorderly persons will not be tolerated and will be asked to vacate the premises.
OK already! Enough of the State rules! Here are our (the owners of the campground)rules:
1. Respect your fellow campers. They are on vacation too!
2. Do not remove the Dining Hall tables and benches from the Dining Hall.
3. Respect the Outdoor Center Property. Please leave it as you found it so the next user can enjoy it as much as you did! . If you accidentally broke something please come and tell me. I won’t bite you . I just want to repair it as soon as possible.
4. Use common sense. If it doesn't seem right, it probably isn't!!!
5. You're on VACATION!!! Have FUN
