Vehicles

  • Should you require a second vehicle at your campsite, a Secondary Vehicle Pass must be purchased.
  • Please keep the campground roads and driving lanes clear for emergency vehicle access at all times.

Generators

Generators will be allowed to operate between 8:00am and Midnight. If your generator makes excessive noise or creates fumes you will be asked not to use it. We understand some people have health related issues that require generators to run all night. In fairness to other campers, these generators must be of the “whisper quiet” make and not disturb other campers. Any non-compliance will result in eviction without refund.

Pets

BVJ is not an ideal weekend for your pets and they may be happier at home. If you do choose to bring your pet they must remain at your campsite, leashed and attended to at all times.
