Rules and Regulations (January /09)

Welcome to Buckslide Tent and Trailer Park. We hope that your stay with us is a pleasant one. The following are rules are intended to ensure that all campers have a pleasant experience while staying at the Park. These are complementary to the License of Occupation that must be completed by all Seasonal Campers. Anyone not adhering to these rules may be asked to leave the Park immediately and no refund will be issued. We suggest that a spare key be left with us for emergency purposes. When you leave the park make sure your fans, lights, water, propane, etc are all turned off. Use of the campground and its facilities is solely at your risk. Insurance on your trailer, personal possessions and for general/public liability are your responsibility. The campground is for recreational/seasonal use only.

Overnight camping check-out is 12:00 noon. Staying past this time will result in the charge of an extra night.

Please make sure that all family members and visitors know and respect the rules as you will be held responsible for their behaviour.

All rules are subject to change and will be enforced/interpreted at the sole discretion of park management. If in doubt, ask.

Above all, please remember the Golden Rule and treat others as you would expect to be treated. Buckslide is a small village and it is vital that all residents behave accordingly.
