Riverside Campground Overnight Camper Rules

 

  1. Check in time is at 1:00 p.m. and check out time is 11:00 a.m.  If you are still on your site after 11:00 a.m., an additional night site fee will be assessed.  We will attempt to accommodate special requests if possible.  Please notify the office, when they open, if you require additional accommodations.
  2. Quiet hours are between 11:00 PM and 8:00 AM. We want to provide all guests with a pleasant camping experience and ask for your support in allowing others to rest and relax. You will be asked once to comply with this rule. If a second visit is necessary, you will be asked to pack your equipment and leave the park, immediately.  We also ask that no fires are started after the hour of 11:00 PM.
  3. Campers under 16 must be on their family’s campsite between the hours of 9:00 PM and 7:00 AM and be accompanied by an adult if they must leave for restroom use during these hours. This is for their safety.
  4. Campfires must be confined to the provided fireplaces or fire rings. The flame height of fires should not exceed 24” above the top of the containment provided. Firewood is for sale at the camp store, foraging for wood, or cutting trees, removing branches or other vegetation is not permitted.
  5. Portable (plug-in) electric heaters are not allowed on any campsite. Water and electric site electrical outlets are for lighting, computer and phone charging and very small appliances (less than 10 amps). Griddles, air conditioners, hot pots and other high draw devices will trip your circuit breaker and possibly damage our electrical equipment and are not allowed on water and electric only sites.
  6. Do not tie off tents or screen houses or hang clotheslines from any utility, site marker posts or newly planted trees.
  7. Please maintain and leave your campsite in the same condition as you found it upon your arrival. If you feel your site is not clean and acceptable when you arrive, notify the staff immediately so we may provide service before you set up your equipment. Place all trash in the dumpster.
  8. State law prohibits dumping food waste anywhere except into trash receptacles. Please do not clog our sink drains, scrape dishes before washing.
  9. You have paid for one campsite. Please respect your neighbor’s space by asking the staff for assistance in locating the boundaries if they are not clear to you, prior to setting up your equipment. It is easier to set up on the correct site rather than having to move later.
  10. You are responsible for your visitors conduct. We do ask that you stop by the office and advise us of expected guests.  The guest should stop at the office, pay the day fee, and let us know who they are, who they are visiting and what site they are going to visit, prior to entering the park.  Guests should leave quietly before 11:00 PM. Visitors remaining after 11:00 PM will have an $8 per person overnight-stay charge and a $4 per vehicle parking fee, added to your bill. Knowing who is in the park at all times is for everyone’s security and safety.
  11. Your children and pets are welcome in our campground once registered at the office upon arrival. You are responsible for their conduct and for picking up after them (we have our own to look after). We require a current rabies and distemper certificate be presented for pets. We also require that a waste disposal bag or device be carried whenever exercising/walking your pet and that you use it to remove all pet waste and deposit it in the dumpster immediately. Anyone who leaves pet waste anywhere in this park will be asked to leave, no excuses, no refunds. Pets are no longer allowed in many campgrounds because of irresponsible owners.  We will continue to admit pets but will not tolerate abuse of this privilege by any guest.
  12. Pets will be restrained and under control at all times. If they are tied-out on your site, the lead must be short enough to confine them to within two feet of the site boundaries. If your pet appears to be aggressive, or is digging, you will be asked to confine it in your camping unit except when being exercised. Children who walk pets must be able to control them; you will be liable for any damage or injury caused by your pet.
  13. It is distressing to listen to pets that have been left in camping equipment or vehicles by their owners and unattended. If your dog does not happily, comfortably and quietly remain behind and is heard barking or whining during your absence, you will be asked to come to the office upon your return to assure they are not left behind again. If we feel the animal is in any distress, the Wells Police will be asked to assure their wellbeing.
  14. There is NO lifeguard on duty at the pool. You are swimming at your own risk and agree to comply with the posted rules for that area. Children under 14 must be accompanied while in the pool area by an adult over 18. Swim diapers are required for children who are not toilet trained. Pets are not allowed in the pool area. Pool hours vary but normally the pool is open from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM.
  15. No fireworks, firearms, weapons or illegal drugs are allowed in the park.
  16. We want everyone to enjoy themselves and be safe during their visit with us, underage alcohol consumption or public intoxication will not be tolerated and will be handled by the Wells Police Department, York County Sheriff or Maine State Police, depending upon whoever can visit you first.
  17. We issue credits for unused stays, but we adhere to a “no refund” policy.
  18. This property is privately owned.  The camper accepts camping privileges with the understanding that he does hereby release the Campground, its officers and employees of all liability for loss or damage to property and injury to his person arising out of his use of its camping facilities, and agrees to indemnify the Campground, its officers and employees, against claims resulting from loss or damage to property or injury to the person of any member of the family or guest of the registered camper arising out of the use of its camping facilities.
  19. Please respect your fellow campers and treat them as you want to be treated. We feel that our rules are simple and reasonable and are intended to assure everyone has a safe, pleasant and relaxing outdoor experience.
