Washrooms - Please keep your children from playing in or around the washrooms.
Water in Flooded Areas – We will continue to keep the low laying areas pumped out. We are for your patience after rainstorms as it does take a bit of time for our pumps to catch up.
Storage – Summer Storage is available again behind Papa Geordies. Please contact Lisa to make arrangements as soon as possible if you are needing a spot. Cost again is $35.00 per month plus GST. Access is on the North side of the facility along the service road west of the grocery store. Those of you who fall under the 10 year storage you will remain valid within the facility until the 10 years expires.
Overnight Guests –Please contact Lisa to let her know if you are planning on having overnight guests as it is important to know how many people are in the campground at any given time. Again there is no additional charge unless they are plugging in a trailer. The fee for plugging in trailers is $40.00 per night.
Dogs– You must attend to your dogs at all times while at the campground. All dogs must be on leash when outside of your campsite and you are responsible for any mess that your dog makes. If your dog is found unattended or causing a disturbance you will be held liable.
Spring Site Cleanup
All sites must be cleared of construction wood, excess items, garbage, leaves and debris by June 15th. This will enable the shrubbery to grow and keep the rodent population down. We will have an area again this year for the leaves. This is for “LEAVES ONLY”!! Please do not bag your leaves!! Dump leaves in the pile. Do not include any garbage with your leaves as it will be used for mulch. In the past years we have found poison in this pile there is absolutely no poison allowed in the RBCG.
Please keep your site clean! Our campground and its campers take pride in how clean and beautiful the campground and their sites are. The RBCG will not tolerate any clutter or extra vehicles stored at the campground in and around your site. After June 15th RBCG will do inspections of the campground to make sure all sites have been cleaned up. If they have not then RBCG will clean up your site and haul clutter to the town landfill at your expense. RBCG will charge you $100.00 per hour plus landfill fees.
NO DUMPING – Do not bring any outside debris into the campground to dispose of. This includes leaves or wood from your primary homes.
Any metal must be disposed of at the town landfill at your expense. The RBCG no longer has a metal pile for you to make use of.
Burn Pile – The Burn pile will be relocated this year to another area which will be announced at the start of the season. This is for wood from your campsite only. If anyone is caught dumping anything other than wood from your campsite you will be asked to remove items and take to the town landfill at your expense. Continued non-compliance will result in RBCG removing the wood pile all together.
The trick to keeping all wildlife away is to make your yard no fun. No place to sleep, no food and a very unwelcoming atmosphere.
Do not leave dog food or water out.
Do not leave garbage out
Do not leave BBQ uncovered or scraps out.
Please be aware that there is poison ivy in the campground. It takes direct contact to “catch” poison ivy. Contact with any part of the plant—including leaves, stems, or roots—can result in an itchy skin rash. It’s not the plant itself that causes the rash; it’s the oil within the plant. This oil, called urushiol, is extraordinarily potent and can stay active on any surface. If you come into contact with poison ivy or oak, wash the exposed skin with soap and water, or wipe the affected area thoroughly with rubbing alcohol. You have about 10 minutes before that poisonous oil causes a reaction. Play it safe this summer, and remember this helpful rhyme whenever you venture into the woods: “Leaves of three, let it be.”
Thank you to all of you who got the 2017 fees into us by the due date of September 1st 2016! As stated in your occupancy agreements this is now mandatory to have your post dated cheques in by Sept 1 every year. If you still have to hand in your post dated cheques please make sure you contact Lisa to make necessary arrangements as a late fee may apply.

If this is the case please contact Lisa to make use of the trees in the RBCG nursery and plant new trees in your site.
If you plan to remove an excessive amount of trees fees may apply.
There is a buffer zone between each site to give privacy. Please respect this zone and do not cut it down.
