Basic Campground Rules

Almost every campground you visit will have a set of rules to follow.  These are usually given to you when you check in.  The list that follows is a very basic list of rules that many campgrounds seem to have in common.  These are only a point of reference for those wondering what sort of rules to expect at the average campground.  Please follow any rules that of the specific campground you are visiting.

  • Watch your speed.  Posted speeds are usually 15 MPH or less for the safety of all guests.
  • Observe quiet hours.   These usually fall sometime between 10:00 pm and 8:00 am.
  • Golf Carts, Mopeds, Scooters etc.   Some campgrounds allow them and some do not.  It is best to call first.
  • Visitors to your site almost always must register at the office when entering the park.
  • Most campgrounds do not allow units to be advertised as for sale within the park.
  • Site cleanliness is your responsibility while you are there.   Each park will have posted where to deposit your trash.
  • Campfires are allowed at many parks.   Many time there is either a designated area to be used or a fire ring might be required.

As earlier stated, these are just a sampling of the rules shared by many campgrounds.  Always refer to the rules given to you. Be safe and enjoy your stay.
