  • TRASH: If you bring it, please take it with you. When that isn't possible we offer trash service near the office on side one. This is normally in the back of a dump truck, however, feel free to ask the office if you don't see it. This is for household trash only and not large or bulky items, no exception. All trash must be bagged.

  • CLEAN UP: As you leave, your campsite should look as good as or better than when you arrived. Please be sure to take everything and clean up after yourself. 
  • DAMAGE TO PROPERTY: Anyone caught damaging property will be banned without exception. SVC uses cameras to ensure safety and compliance and has zero tolerance to this behavior. 
  • PARKING: You may park in your designated campsite or in the center grass areas of both side one and side two. At no time should you park in a campsite not being occupied/paid/reserved by you. Do not park within 30 feet of any playground equipment.
