TOP TEN TENTING TIPS

EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT LIFE IN A TENT-BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK!
10. Wilderness camping requires you to secure your food in containers that raccoons can't enter. Show that you are smarter than the raccoons. Protect your breakfast.
9. You can choose from generous sized sites that have 20 amp electric and water available or you can "go rustic" in areas with just your fire ring and picnic table.
8. The clubhouse and the pavilion have full restrooms and showers. Both are open 24 hours seasonally for your convenience.
7. Have the whole family coming? Our sites are set up so that you can be close to one another, circle your tents, whatever configuration would work for you. As long as it does not adversly impact the other campers, we will work with you to make your stay here enjoyable. As far as family counseling goes, sorry, that's not included in our reasonable tent prices.
6. We do not allow firewood to be brought onto the Lock 30 property because of Emerald Ash Borer. We do sell milk crates full of seasoned firewood for $6.00 each (cheaper than Wal Mart!). Call the office before noon on your date of arival to make arrangements to have larger amounts pre-delivered to your site. You can pay for this discounted service at the time of check-in or at your convenience.
5.You will find the dumpsters enclosed in wood privacy structures, designed to be convenient for trash disposal but attractive in our wooded, natural setting . There is one at the far end of the campground by the path leading to Beaver Creek, and one behind the gatehouse. Do not even think of disposing of naughty children, bad dates or broken down couches hauled from your mother-in-law's basement.
4. We want your pets to be comfortable and attended to at all times - and cleaned up after. We recognize that tents cannot safely contain animals, and animals "chained" to stakes are unhappy campers. Besides, we want to protect your dog from Big Foot, who wanders through the area and is attracted to nuisance children and dogs left unattended. So, think about whether you intend to be with your pet at all times. If not, leave them on the couch in your mother-in-law's basement, where they wil be comfortable.
3. Take a stroll around the campground. Stop in the gatehouse for ice cream. Pick up the marshmallows, graham crackers, and Hershey bars for Smores when you get back to your campfire.
2. Say Hi to your neighbor. They may be the best volleyball, basketball, bocce, or horseshoe player on site.
You don't want them on the opposing team when you decide to play a game the next day!
1. RELAX!! You are on vacation. We want you and your family to have a safe, enjoyable stay with us. We are here to make that happen for you.
