In order to maximize your enjoyment while staying with us, the following campground rules were established to help you understand what is permitted in The Beautiful Rock Campground, RV, and Music Park. It is always best to consult with the park manager prior to starting any projects on your campsite. Failure to abide by the Campground Rules or the Rules and Regulations of The Rock Campground may result in the termination of your Camping Permit.
- Campers must personally register for a camping permit and may not register for other persons. RV & Tent sites are issued only to persons twenty-one (21) years of age or older, who shall be responsible for the conduct of all persons using the assigned campsite.
- Only two (2) motor vehicles are permitted on each campsite. Vehicles must be confined to the campsite for which they are registered. Parking on vacant campsites are prohibited.
NO EXTRA CAMPING UNITS ALLOWED ON A CAMPSITE (Without permission from the office)
- Only one (1) camping unit with wheels is permitted on a campsite-Your RV or Motorhome. A camping unit is any motor vehicle, watercraft, or other camping equipment to be used for sleeping and/or for the purpose of occupying a site. Pick-up campers, vans, and camper trailers are regarded as wheeled camping units.
PORCHES AND DECKS
- Porches and decks steps are allowed as long as certain requirements and limitations are met and maintained, and permission is obtained from the office manager or owner. Porches or decks shall not exceed the length of the trailer (box or living space), and shall be constructed to be readily removed, if necessary, with NO supporting structures below ground level, i.e., footers or posts. They must be constructed in such a manner that they may be temporarily and readily removable with minimal means. Decks are the responsibility of the camper. Decks for specific uses such as tents, picnic tables, sitting areas or grills will not be approved.
- Campfires are permitted on designated campsites and should only be ignited and maintained in an appropriate above the ground fire ring. Absolutely no on the ground fires are permitted. No fire should be left unattended. All fires must be extinguished before leaving the area. No treated lumber, OSB, plywood, or other materials that may emit hazardous fumes should be burned at the campsites. Wood should be free of hardware i.e. nails, screws,staples, etc.
- Campers are permitted the use of external lighting provided such lighting is directly attached to the primary camping unit or attached awning. Electrical supply for the lighting must come directly from the camping unit and not from out extra 110 plug in outlets. Using extra plug-ins will result in a $25 extra fee for the extra unmetered power usage. External lighting is not permitted to be on during daylight hours. Timers or electric eyes are encouraged to control lighting. The use of spotlights or reflective shades is not permitted when such use creates a hazard or nuisance to pedestrian,or motor vehicle traffic. The Rock Campground reserves the right to limit the location, wattage, and number of lights allowed on an individual basis as it deems necessary.
REMOVAL OF CAMPSITE LOT POSTS AND FIRE RINGS
- Removal of any campsite lot post and/or fire ring by anyone other than park personnel will NOT be permitted for any reason. Trailers must be positioned in such a way that campsite lot post and/or fire ring removal is not required to place or remove the camping unit.
- The trimming or cutting of trees on the property is strictly prohibited. In the event you feel that a particular tree or limb is a hazard, you may contact the Park Manager or Assistant Park Manager to request an evaluation of the situation. If the Park Manager or Assistant Park Manager deems necessary, removal or trimming will be handled as soon as practical.
RADIO, TELEVISION AND SATELLITE ANTENNAS
- External radio, television and satellite antennas are permitted only if they are directly attached to the camping unit and do not exceed a total height of ten (10) feet above the camping unit. Exceptions will be made when there is poor reception due to terrain surrounding the camping unit. In any case the external antenna or satellite dish must be located within the boundaries of the campsite. All exceptions need to be approved by the Park Manager or Assistant Park Manager. Tree removal or trimming to improve television or radio reception is prohibited. Antennas or satellites may not be attached to electric boxes or campsite posts.
- Clotheslines are NOT permitted on campsites under any circumstance.
- Only one (1) grounded connection between the camping unit and the electrical post supplied by the campground is permitted. All electrical fixtures and appliances must be connected to the camping unit. Multiple taps on the power post and/or connecting to more than one (1) electric service box is not permitted. Use of electric generating equipment is not permitted without the expressed written approval, by annotation on the camping permit, by authorized park personnel. Alteration or tampering with The Rock Campground's electric service is strictly prohibited. Such alteration will be cause for immediate cancellation of your stay with us, and possible criminal prosecution. Campsites are rated at specific amperage. It is the camper’s responsibility to stay within the supply available. Damage to the camper’s equipment and/or The Rock Campground's electrical system will be the responsibility of the camper.
APPEARANCE OF CAMPSITE
- Campsites and camping units must be regularly maintained in order to present a clean and pleasing appearance. Inoperable, unlicensed, or inoperable motor vehicles or other items, which may be deemed a nuisance by the Office Manager or the owner are not permitted. It is not the campground's responsibility to weedeat or mow the grass around your camper (certain disabilities and conditions are taken into consideration, but it is the tenants responsibility to let the office manager know so that arrangements can be made to keep the yard in a clean appearance). Failure to maintain the campsite in proper appearance may result in park staff giving you a warning, and if not fixed they may ask you to leave.
MOWING OF CAMPSITES
- Seasonal, and 30-day permit holders are responsible for the appearance of their campsite. This includes mowing and trimming of grass on the campsite. The Beautiful Rock Campground staff will mow a seasonal campsite under special circumstances. (i.e. health, special needs situations.) Please see park management for arrangements. A lot that is not maintained will be mowed/trimmed by park staff and a fee will be assessed to the permit holder. We will not mow around the RV site if there is Pet excrement under any circumstance. We do not like to wear or spread your pets droppings while maintaining our grounds so you may have a nice camping experience. You are responsible for cleaning up after your pet!
PETS IN CAMP AREAS: LEASH REQUIREMENTS/REGISTRATION
- Pets are permitted and shall be confined to the camping unit, or kept on a leash attached to the camping unit, or held in hand. Electronic control methods such as buried electric pet fences, shock collars, etc., do not satisfy the leash requirements nor are they permitted. Pets should never be tied to a tree. Owners are responsible for the actions of their pet(s). Owners must clean up after their animal(s), at least daily. Kennels must be maintained in a sanitary fashion, and must be able to safely secure the pet within the confines of the structure. Pets must be registered when making a reservation request. You must include the name, breed and date of last rabies vaccination along with any additional information required by the local County Health Department.
