∙ The Park is under the jurisdiction of Yavapai County for rabies and animal control. Park Office has copies of ordinances upon request.
MAINTENANCE OF SPACES
The Park is strictly a recreational park. Although we have many monthly renters, the Park still must be maintained as an RV park. As people stay in one place, they tend to accumulate more items, but the Park is not equipped to handle an excess of possessions around each space. Consequently, the following requirements are in effect:
A. Water hoses leading from your RV to the Park hook-up must be in good condition with no leaks.
B. Electrical cords leading from your RV to the Park’s hook-up must be in good condition with no raw wires exposed.

CHILDREN AND HAZARDS
This Park is a family community but there are health and safety concerns due to the geography of the Park and its location alongside a river, which at times is very dangerous.

Due to safety, the following rules are in effect:
