2020 Guidelines & Policy for Seasonal Residents
Please read through the 2020 Guidelines and Policy that are listed below.
SITE: The site is rented to persons registered at the campground office. Keeping the site neat and clean is the responsibility of the seasonal resident. Only ONE camping unit (trailer, motor home, etc.) is permitted on each site. Residents are required to have their camping trailer, motor home, etc. insured for fire and physical damage. Trailers must be washed each season. No tent can be placed on any site unless approved by management. Approved tents are for minor children only, and should be of the small umbrella type and placed in the back of the site. Unapproved tents will be automatically billed to your account at $30 per day.
SOCIAL DISTANCING: Please read the Social Distancing Policy. These rules will be in effect until further notice. Any rule outlined in this additional policy will supersede any other rule published here. Failure to adhere to these rules will result in eviction and no refund will be granted.
VISITORS: Until further notice, please keep outside visitors to a minimum. There should be no more than 2 visitors on your site any point. You are responsible for your visitors adhering to all social distancing rules.
ELECTRIC POWER: Power is provided to each site for use of electrical equipment as provided by the manufacture of your camping unit. Grounded type, 12 gauge power cords are required on your camping unit. Resident installed electric cable, service disconnects and other equipment on park property become park equipment and cannot be removed without management permission. The Park assumes NO responsibility for any damage to customer electric devices, appliances, converters, etc. used in the campground. We suggest that you use “surge protection devices” on all electronic equipment.
ADDITIONS AND/OR OTHER CONSTRUCTION: Residents may NOT construct any type of addition to their camping trailer. Commercial “add-a-room," screen rooms, awnings, etc. are permitted with the approval of the management. All plastic tarps are prohibited for use as an awning, covering the camper or screen room. You must secure approval from management before you START building decks and/or docks. All approved decks/docks must be constructed with treated lumber and galvanized nails/screws. Wood pallets and lattice are PROHIBITED in the park and may not be used for any purpose. Unless required for safety reasons, fences and railings are prohibited. Any constructed item on a site may not be transferred to another site without inspection and approval. DECK SIZE IS NOT TO EXCEED the length of the trailer and a width of 12 feet. DOCK SIZE IS LIMITED TO a 3 – 4 foot width and a 40’ length. Sun Decks must be approved by management and are limited to a size of 12’ by 12’.
SANITARY REQUIREMENTS: You may use a MAXIMUM of a 1-inch line from your gray waste water tank to the drain tank on your site. A 3" sewer hose connection to the drain system is PROHIBITED and a violation of NYS health laws. Dumping raw sewage and/or gray water on the ground is prohibited. Dumping stations are located at each rest room building.
BOAT DOCKS: Residents using campground docks will have to reserve a space at the office. Lakefront residents constructing boat docks need approval from management before starting construction. Docks must be constructed of treated lumber and galvanized nails/screws/bolts and maintained in a safe condition. A copy of your NYS registration and proof of insurance must be provided when renting a boat slip. Damage to boat docks will be billed to your seasonal account. Pine Lake Campground assumes no liability for boats moored at our docks.
SALE OF CAMPING TRAILERS IN THE PARK: You may sell your camping trailer in the park if you: [I] Notify management that the unit is for sale. (2) State the asking price. (3) Inform all interested buyers that you are selling only the trailer, NOT THE SITE! (4) All charges must be paid in full before the trailer can be removed from the park. Management reserves the right to determine if the trailer can remain on its site and/or in the Park. Failure to comply with the above items will require that the trailer be removed from the park to be sold. In the Resort Village, 5% of total selling price retention fee for ALL units remaining on site applies. This fee is payable to Pine Lake Resort Village and is the sole responsibility of the seller.
GOLF CARTS: All customers must REGISTER their golf cart in the office. You are required to submit proof of insurance and sign off on the rules governing the use of golf carts. You will be issued a numbered golf cart sticker, which must be affixed to the back of your cart. Please keep in mind that any person operating your golf cart will be subject to the rules for using a golf cart. Only adults or minors who possess a NYS driver’s license may operate a golf cart on park property. If an unlicensed minor is caught operating a golf cart on park property, the owner of the cart will receive a warning for a first offense. If there is any subsequent violation, you will be required to remove the golf cart from park property and your golf-cart privileges will be suspended.
GOLF CARTS MAY NOT BE OPERATED after sunset unless equipped with appropriate lighting. ABSOLUTELY NO GOLF CARTS MAY BE USED AFTER 11 PM. A first violation of the rules governing the use of golf carts will result in a warning and a second violation will result in the suspension of your cart privileges for the remainder of the season. If the nature of the violation warrants, management reserves the right to suspend privileges on a first offense.
