RV & Site Standards

RV & Site Standards

We want you to be happy, comfortable, and feel safe while staying with us. In order to make sure we accomplish that goal, we put together the following Standards to create and maintain an inviting atmosphere, pleasant appearance, and a safe place to stay. 

We believe that the appearance and condition of our Camper’s RVs contribute to the overall goal of implementing these Standards. Generally speaking, there is no age limit for RVs, however, we will not allow any RV to stay in the park that is considered in disrepair based on the standards listed herein. Any new Seasonal applicant with a RV older than 10 years must submit photos with the application for approval.

All RVs, sites, alterations, and added structures must conform to these Standards and new alterations and additions must be preapproved.  Complete the Construction Review Form to apply for any alterations, new structures, or variances. All decisions are at the sole discretion of Happy Acres LLC management.

Maintenance Standards:  Disrepair & Saleable Condition

At all times the Camper’s site, alterations, RV, and personal property must be maintained in a state of being non-hazardous, sanitary, visibly pleasing, and in good condition and shall not be allowed to fall into Disrepair. At the time of check-out or upon moving to a new site, the Camper’s site must be returned to Saleable Condition.

Management will inform the Seasonal if, in management’s sole discretion, their site, RV, and or personal property are considered to be in Disrepair based on the Campground Maintenance Standards. The Seasonal will have 10 days to make the necessary repairs or improvements. 

If the site is unmaintained, it will be considered in disrepair, and will be subject to remedial action and fees. If you will be away for an extended time, please schedule site maintenance with the office.

The Campground will work in good faith with Campers to make allowances for short-term, uncontrollable, or unique circumstances, however, shall have sole discretion of what is deemed Saleable Condition & Disrepair. Any site deemed to be in Disrepair and presenting hazardous, unsanitary, or unsightly conditions must be restored per the Maintenance Standards or may result in termination of the Camping Permit and or the camper may incur expenses.

For the purposes of clarification, the following are examples of Disrepair. This list is not all inclusive.

  • broken or boarded windows or other improper window coverings (sheets/towels/insulation/etc.)
  • RV with open or taped shut holes and or tears
  • Leaking roofs and or Tarps on roofs
  • leaking septic connections
  • rotted decking or shed
  • piled debris/trash
  • broken siding or heavily chipped, peeled or faded paint
  • toys and other clutter spread across site
  • shifted footings
  • flat tires
  • overgrown grass or weeds
  • damage to park infrastructure
  • Any other situation or condition that management, in its sole discretion, deems to be in disrepair

Saleable Condition means that, at the termination of camping permit, the site is in good condition, similar to when you checked in and ready to sell to new guests. For example, any alterations should be well maintained and allowing for landscape maintenance and the lot is generally free from excessive weeds, large patches of dead grass, ruts, debris, decking in disrepair, etc.

At the end of each camping season, any RV or personal property that is expected to remain in the park into the next camping season must meet our then current standards. Non-conforming RV and personal property will not be allowed to remain in the park.
