On the beach (key access) - $100
Docking on the Aluminum Dock: $325 minimum, over 20 feet - $15 per foot
If you are interested in docking space, please indicate on the registration form. Proof of insurance and registration will be required for the rental of a docking space. Since we offer dock space at such a low rate, we assume no liability for boats moored at our docks. Due to issues last year, storage space in the Resort Village will be by permission only. Please stop in the office to fill out the appropriate paperwork before placing anything in the storage area.
The docking area is strictly for docking only and may only be used for vessel deployment. Please use idling speed until 200 feet off shore and away from the large beach. This will be strictly enforced and monitored by our beach personnel. No swimming, fishing or water skiing is permitted. Boat removal only between 10 and 11 and 6 and 7 daily. Absolutely no boat usage or motor noise during wedding ceremonies on the beach. Courtesy is the key word.
Boat Launch Hours: Thursday through Sunday 10 am to 12 pm. Last season there were numerous issues launching and retrieving watercraft and our hope is to make this process a bit more streamlined. The key will no longer be available in the office and all boats will need to be launched/removed during scheduled hours.
Visitor Policy: All day/single overnight visitors will be free of charge except for the dates of July 3 and July 4, when a visitor fee of $5 per vehicle will apply for ALL visitors on these two days. Please remember that any overnight guest must stay in your RV with you.
Golf Carts: Please remember that in order to operate a golf cart on park grounds, it will be necessary for you to complete a registration form, provide proof of insurance and sign off on the rules governing the use of golf carts. Click here for the golf cart registration form. All golf carts must be registered with the office and they need to be assigned a number that is 3 inches in height and displayed prominently on your cart. Operating rules are basically the same as a licensed motor vehicle. Under-age operation will not be tolerated. Proof of insurance coverage may be required. Violation of these rules will require removal of your cart from the park after one warning.
Bicycles: Children must wear an approved helmet riding a bicycle if under age 14. No bike riding after sunset.
Sale of Homes: All sales of homes with the expressed intent to remain in the Park and onsite will be consummated in the business office. The site retention fee and new owner approval will be made at that time. Units removed from the Park incur no charge. The rental or subletting of your personal property (unit) is not allowed.
Employees: Any request made by a campground or beach employee speaks for the management. Complaints or disagreements will be handled in the business office.
Thanks in advance for your help in following the Park Rules!
