Guests are not allowed to remain at the campsite once the member has departed. If a seasonal or other registered camper allows another Club member to use their campsite, notice must be given to the Campsite Director within a minimum of 3 days in advance of the date. Notice will then be given to the Duty Commissionaire of that permission. There is to be no swimming or fishing off the boat ramp or dock.
