Campground Rules

Guidelines

We camp in a different world now than when we were kids. In our campground, the actions of one person may be multiplied by 10,000 in just one season. Our (and your) actions now will determine whether this beautiful piece of nature will still be here for our children and grandchildren to enjoy in the years to come.

How can you help? Please follow our rules below – they are in place for good reasons! We do our best to limit the impact we make on our natural world and we ask you to do the same. As the saying goes, “Leave only footprints, and take only pictures.”

Note:  Please refrain from displaying any Political signs, banners, or flags at your campsite.  Thank you!

Thank you for helping to preserve this piece of nature in Door County!

Quiet Hours

10 pm to 8 am

The quality of rest and relaxation is important to our campers so please refrain from loud noises and disturbances during this period. Be aware that even normal speaking voices carry on quiet nights so it may be necessary to whisper.

Radios, music, and outside TVs should be silenced from 10pm-8am, and should not be heard off of your site even during the day.  Excessive noise isn’t allowed at any time, and there is a greater expectation of peacefulness during our quiet hours. 

Children under 18 yrs. must be on their site and under adult supervision after 10 pm. Groups need to be splitting up and everyone heading back to their own site no later than 11 pm. Quiet hours are enforced. Your fellow campers will thank you!

Absolutely NO Wood Gathering!

There is to be no wood gathering (dead or alive), or cutting or bark peeling of trees and branches.

Campers sometimes wonder why “dead and down” branches and sticks can’t be gathered from our woods to burn. If every camper, or even one fourth of our campers, went into the woods collecting items our underbrush, vegetation, and wildflowers would be trampled. Nothing may be taken from our woods! We try to keep it as natural as possible.

Violators will be asked to leave immediately with no refund.

Leave Firewood at Home

Per the Wisconsin DNR, leave your own firewood at home! Why? Firewood brought in from other areas or regions may contain invasive insects, fungi, and/or diseases that could spread.

To prevent the spread of plant diseases and destructive insects, buy your firewood only within 20 miles of our campground – so somewhere up here in Door County.

Because of the seriousness of the problem, transport of firewood from quarantined areas is a federal offense. We do sell bundles locally-sourced and inspected firewood (split, dry, wrapped, and with a convenient carrying handle) here at our camp store. We also have a supply of kindling available for no extra charge.

Campfires out by midnight

Never leave a fire unattended, and please make sure fires are out before retiring or leaving a campsite. Use water to douse out glowing embers completely.

Fires need to be kept small and logs larger than fire pits should not be burned. Forest fires are an ever-present danger. No garbage in fire pits. Do not move fire pits.

Smokey Bear thanks you for being aware of your campfire at all times!

Please Help Save Our Woods!

Limit all activities to the designated site. Please, do not walk in, set up, or store anything in the woods or in the brush or vegetation surrounding your campsite.

Please stay on the marked trails and roads only. If you are camping with others, PLEASE use the road to go from site to site! This prevents the undergrowth and wildflowers in our woods (have you seen our lady slippers?) from being trampled and destroyed.

Pets are Welcome

We love our furry campers! Pets must not be left unattended and must be on a leash and under your control at all times (even if your dog is the best dog ever)!

Please pick up after your pet and dispose of wast in dumpsters or doggie stations. 

Pets are not allowed to sleep outside the camping unit. Nor are they allowed in the shower houses for sanitary reasons. Barking needs to be curtailed (barking dogs can be very annoying to your neighbors). 

Pets must be up to date on all vaccinations. You are responsible and liable for your pets at all times.

7 mph Speed Limit!

This is for safety reasons. It seems like a crawl and it is … PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY!  

No Bike Riding after Dark

Due to the darkness of our campground, please refrain from riding your bike after dusk and before dawn.  When at our main building please park your bike in the bike racks. To avoid any mishaps, please do not ride or park bikes on the walkways surrounding the buildings.

NOTE:  We do not have a safe area for skateboarding, scooters, or rollerblading. 

NO Fireworks

No Fireworks of any kind are allowed.  We are in a forest and fires are an ever-present danger!

Golf Carts Are Not Allowed

Golf carts, ATVs, and motorized dirt bikes are not allowed for our campers.
Everything at Wagon Trail Campground is within walking distance.

Outside Lighting

Many RVs are now equipped with a variety of outdoor lighting, but please after dusk turn off as many lights as possible when not needed.  Many of our campers enjoy the beautiful night sky.

The stars are amazing on clear nights, and if you are lucky you may even get a glimpse of the Northern Lights! 

Turning off un-needed lights at your campsite also helps reduce electricity useage.

Display your Car / Vehicle Pass

All cars and vehicles admitted to the campgrounds must have a current car pass issued by the camp office. Please make sure to display your green car pass on the rear view mirror of your vehicle.

Check-out Time: 12 noon

Please leave your campsite (and rental unit) clean for the next camper. Check-in is after 3:00 pm. If your site is available before 3:00 pm an early check-in may be allowed.

Note: We do not allow arrivals or setups after 10:00 pm as that is when our quiet policy starts.

Visitors

Visitors must register at the camp office and must obtain a car pass.  Please make sure to display your pink car pass on the rear view mirror of your vehicle. Visitors must leave by 10:00 pm. If visitors stay overnight (subject to the occupancy limit of your campsite) there is an additional per-person charge.

Grey Water

Grey water (from washing dishes, food preparation, bathing, hand washing, etc) should be collected and disposed of in our dump station. By state law and for sanitation reasons, drain hoses are not allowed to drain out onto the ground. 

Septic waste should be directed to the sewer hookup (if campsite is so equipped). RV holding tanks should be emptied at our dump station. A honey wagon pump-out service is available. Inquire at the camp office.

NO Generators

RV and campsite generators are not permitted. If you will need an electrical hookup, plan your reservation accordingly.

Please Inform Your Children

Parents and guardians are expected to inform their children / grandchildren of the above rules, and are responsible for the supervision and behavior of the children under their care at all times. 

VIOLATION OF ANY OF THE ABOVE RULES MAY RESULT IN THE IMMEDIATE TERMINATION OF YOUR RESERVATION AND YOUR REMOVAL FROM THE CAMPGROUND – WITHOUT REFUND. FEES FOR DAMAGES AND ADDITIONAL CHARGES MAY ALSO APPLY.
