Alcohol, Cigarettes, Vaping & Cannabis
Use of alcohol is permitted on your camp site only. We have a zero-tolerance policy for any alcohol or drug related issues, (including but not limited to) any kind of confrontation, excessive noise, odor, etc. *Do not throw any containers, trash or cigarette butts on the ground.

No chewing Tobacco or snuff shall be used if it involves spitting on the ground. No smoking of any kind is allowed in the common areas such as pool, playground, jumping pillow, or by any building or gathering where children are present. Please be considerate when smoking on your campsite.
Site & RV Appearance and Maintenance
Camping site cannot be loaned or rented to another individual or group. It is our express intent to keep each site looking like a campground – not a mobile home park. No permanent lattice work, screen porches must be simple canvas RV type, etc. All campers are responsible for maintaining the appearance of their site. Appliances (ex. Refrigerators and freezers) are not permitted outside the RV/camper. Wood pallets are not permitted in the campground. You may have one portable drying rack on your site, preferably kept out of sight when not in use. Campers staying onsite monthly are responsible to keep their trailer exterior clean and in good repair. The space behind each perimeter site is not part of the site. Woodchip is required to maintain a visual barrier for our neighbors. Nothing is to be stored in this area. *For stays of longer than two weeks a 10 years or newer rule for the RV applies. All RV’s outside of this must be approved annually.
Mail and Packages
We will accept mail and packages and put them inside the bench on the front porch. If they do not fit in the bench or at your request, we will keep them in the office. Please do not call about mail outside of office hours. Outgoing mail may be placed directly in the large Woodchip mailbox by the road. Include a site number when you order things to be delivered so they can be delivered directly to your site. Please do not have your mailing address changed to ours, this is a business address. Because we are business, the post office will not allow you to do a change of address when you leave. You will need to contact each entity that sends you mail and change it personally. We suggest you rent a post office box or use a mail service as it allows a much smoother transition when you leave the park.
Site Payments and Electric Payments
If you are a month to month or seasonal customer, you must have a payment method on file. We run all monthly/seasonal customer payments on the 16th of each month, no matter what your check in or check out date is. For electric payments, we only charge what we are charged by Consumers Energy. Woodchip holds a $100 electric deposit for Monthly & Seasonal guests during the summer and a $200 deposit for Monthly & Seasonal guests during the winter.
Golf carts are not permitted unless medically necessary for the camper’s mobility. Licensed operators only.
You are responsible for loss of food or other damage incurred due to a power loss of any kind, loss of power to campground, electrical surge, voltage drop, accidental unplugging, etc.
For guests staying in the winter season: Bath House, Laundry, Pool, Bounce Pillow, and Office/Store are all closed during the Winter season. In-Person office appointments can be made. Large propane tanks and foam board skirting, as well as winterproofing items applied to the RV are only allowed during the winter season only. Site holder is responsible for shoveling snow on their own campsite. Woodchip will plow the roads in the park. The water supply is heated to ground level. It is the responsibility of the camper to make sure the heat lamp remains on, and the bucket in place on sites in the “A” section. The rest of the park is equipped with heated hydrants. We require the use of a heated drinking water hose. They are thermostatically controlled and have a heating element that prevents water from freezing in the hose. Thawing frozen lines is not the responsibility of Woodchip Campground owners or management.
We ask that you download our app so that while you are camping you can receive announcements on any issues affecting the campground during your stay. The app also has all the information and times for the activities and events that will be happening during your stay.
Indemnity & Personal Property
The use of any equipment or facilities of the campground by any persons is at that person’s risk and the registered Camper agrees to indemnify and hold the campground owners harmless for any loss, cost or damage incurred as a result of the activities of the registered Camper, family members and guests. All personal property brought into the campground is at the registered Camper’s risk and the campground owners shall bear no responsibility for the damage, loss or theft of such property. All campers assume the responsibility of maintaining proper insurance on their RV and personal property. The campground is not responsible for any damage to the RV or personal property for any reason including an act of God (i.e. wind, lighting, hail, fallen branches, trees, embers that drift onto property, etc.) accident, fire or vandalism.
Woodchip Campground owners reserve the right to determine the suitability of all campers and the necessity of ejecting any guest for the “good of the campground”. I recognize the owners / management of Woodchip Campground have the ultimate responsibility of determining what is best for the campground, and I agree to abide by their decisions without creating a negative environment in the campground. I recognize the perspective of the owners in determining what is best for the campground might be different than what I might expect is best for me.
We thank you for agreeing to abide by all the above rules and regulations. We reserve the right to ask anyone to leave (without a refund) for inappropriate behavior: excessive noise, disrespect of property, failure to follow above policies, etc. If you have a problem or concern, please bring it to us so we can assist you.
