~ Current as of February 2020
- No illegal drugs allowed on premises.
- Keep vehicle speed under 15km/h for safety and dust control.
- No pleasure riding of motorcycles, snowmobiles or all-terrain vehicles.
Parking: a) Units are permitted to be pulled through in the main center field, “when the land dry”. (If you have to stop and wonder if the field is dry enough to pull through; then you probably shouldn’t)
- Units are permitted to be parked “awning to awning”.
- Park far enough away from your neighbor so the awnings can be put out, taking “push- outs” into consideration as well.
- The center of the main field is to be left clear.
- a) Mats and any other items must be taken up often enough to prevent damage to the grass.
- When leaving the park after the weekend, steps are to be put up and if possible, slides put in for mowing purposes.
- Units must be moved to a different mowed spot every TWO weeks.
- If unit is left unoccupied for longer than 14 days, it must be placed in the holding area. The designated area for this is behind the building , along the tree line and south toward the Samuel Mader Road. We are still required to move unit every TWO weeks. The SSBMA will not be held responsible for said units.
- No charcoal barbeques.
- Keep radio and stereo music, etc. at a reasonable volume so there is no interference with other members.
- No loud parties or profanity.
- Generators are not to be used between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 7:00 am, except for medical reasons or club functions. Unreasonable use of loud generators will not be tolerated.
- Campfires are not allowed outside the main controlled fireplace. Being a campground, (although private) fires are permitted during a fire ban for warmth and/or cooking purposes, keeping in mind “Safety First”, do not leave campfire unattended.
- No burning of garbage in the main controlled fireplace.

- When not being walked, all pets must be confined within your campsite.
- Pet owners must clean up after their own pets. All pet waste must be collected and taken home, no matter where on the property it is dropped. Pet waste attracts rats and disease.

Visiting family from away are permitted to camp (either with own unit or in member’s unit) on two occasions PER YEAR. Our guests must be made aware of our rules and their responsibility to follow them.
On one occassion during a season, if children or grandchildren are camping with a member in good standing they may attend SSBMA “Member’s Only” functions. MUST be accompanied by the inviting member.
- Members and guests are requested to fill fresh water tanks prior to entering the park. If we run out of water while staying at the park, fill-ups are ONLY AVAILABLE at the tap behind the building. Proceed down the hill and take the first road to the right.
- The “Catch Basins” that are found in different areas of the park, are to be used for dish water only.
- The “dump station” has been designed for us to drive over the cement pad. Stop where the sewage comes out from the RV and is directly lined up with the dump station hole. Any spill would then be caught by the cement basin and cleaned off with the water hose available at the station.
- When entering the park with full black/grey tanks, there will be a $7.00 charge to dump.
- Fundraising projects are encouraged, but must be proposed to the Ways and Means Committee, or a director, who will then bring them to the attention of the Board of Directors for approval.
