  1. Quiet hours are from 10 pm to 8 am.  No generators or noises which will carry past your own tent/RV site.  This is county law, and will be enforced.  You can be asked to leave without a refund if you are too noisy after one warning.  This is a family oriented campout.

  2. All dogs must be on a short leash (no longer than 6 feet) at all times in the campsite.  You are responsible to clean up every time after your pet.  Bring dog-do bags and your own favorite shovel to clean up after them.  Dogs must have all shots, BE SAFE AROUND OTHERS, and be kept quiet-- day and night so as not to bother neighbors.  If your dog is a problem, you can be asked to leave the campsite without a refund. If you are having a problem with your neighbor, or your neighbor’s dog, please gently talk to them first, and then to us if the problem continues.

  3. Be patient with others.  We’ve not had an eclipse here in our lifetimes, and we are all doing our best.  There will be lots of people and lots of traffic on the roads—and we suggest you leave early to beat the rush hour if your plans include a hike in the woods, Yellowstone, Grand Teton National Park, Jackson, Grand Targhee Ski Resort, etc.  

  4. Keep the wristband on at all times in the campsite—so we know you’ve paid to be here. Replacement wristbands are $15 each.

  5. Keep your parking permit on your vehicle’s dashboard or rear view mirror at all times.  We cannot allow unpaid vehicles in the campsite.  You can buy more passes at the front entrance if needed for extra guests who may have decided to come.  Vehicles will be asked to leave without this parking permit.  Replacement permits are $15 each.  

  6. One RV only per lot.  RV’s are expected to use their own toilet and washing facilities, as our porta potties may overload if those who have their own toilets use ours. 

  7. Smokers must have a fireproof container in which to put their butts in.  DO NOT LEAVE THESE ON THE GRASS OR ROADWAYS AS OUR FIRE DANGER IS EXTREMELY HIGH. You will be held legally responsible if you start a fire in our campground.  Please report any unsafe behavior to us that you may see.  There is a burn ban enacted by the Fire Dept., and we can’t allow campfires. 

  8. Alcohol must be kept in your own campsite.  No alcohol in common areas or roadways. Please keep it classy, as this is a family oriented campout.

  9. Please watch your children.

  10. Please obey no trespassing signs, and stay away from the creek area.  There are lots of National Forest and BLM spots with creeks and ponds on them nearby—we’re glad to help you know how to find them for fishing or recreation. 

  11. Pay attention to the packing list emailed to you—and bring all on the list.  If you are cooking with an enclosed cooker, you MUST BRING OR BUY a fire extinguisher and have it in plain sight while cooking.  We will have plenty of water /ice for sale at reasonable prices.  WonderfulFood will be for sale at the site for breakfast, lunch and possibly dinners. 

  12. Checking Into Your Campsite-We have decided to have everyone check-in once they arrive at the campgrounds. When you arrive, just let us know at the gate what name you registered under and we will get you all your parking passes, wristbands and escort you to your camping spot. Those who have registered are guaranteed a spot for the entire weekend. Nobody will be able to take your spot! Guests are allowed to arrive any time.

  13. Courtesy- We will have nearly 400 campers within the campground. In that instance, we would like to remind everyone to stay courteous! This means that generators are only running during daytime hours and that campground noise stays at an acceptable level. We want everyone to enjoy their time here! Also, please be contientous of the cleanliness of your camping spot. We are near the wilderness so animals can possibly be a nuisance if things are not cleaned up!

  14. Restrooms and Food- You will have access to portable restrooms and hand washing stations. We are not able to provide portable showers. We will have fresh food available as well as food vendors.

  15. Preparing- If you do not want to pay a premium for food for the weekend, we suggest that you pack food! We encourage you all to bring your own food as food within the Valley will be at a premium. Please also visit our page on being properly prepared for the eclipse!
