Dunnville, Ontario N1A 2W6          PARK RULES & REGULATIONS AGREEMENT                       905-774-8751

This Agreement dated this ______day of ____________________  Between ___________________________________ from 

Site #______ herein known as (the “Participant”) and Maitland Shores RV Park herein known as ( the “Park”).

1. As safety is a number one priority, all trailers must be equipped with working smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers. No unlicensed/uninsured person is allowed to work on propane systems. Each trailer owner must insure their unit for fire and liability and  show proof of the policy at the start of each season.

2. Septic System: Proper use of the septic system must be followed. Do not put any diapers, sanitary products, cigarette butts, coffee grounds, food and  the worst of all, cooking grease down the toilets or drains. Single ply toilet paper must be used. If your trailer has a holding tank, the proper chemicals must be used to break down the solids. Do not use chemicals that just deodorize. Please make sure  your visitors are made aware of the proper usage of the septic system. As in any septic or sewage system, there is always the possibility of a back-up. For this reason we strongly recommend that you install an anti-backup sewer valve on any trailer that is not equipped with a holding tank. If your trailer has a holding tank, you should close all black water and grey water valves before leaving the park. This should prevent any back-up into your trailer. Maitland Shores will not be held responsible for any damages caused by a sewage back-up as we cannot control what people put down the drains and toilets. Management does what we can to keep everything running properly but you, the customer, have to make sure to use the septic system properly. If you notice a problem, please notify management immediately so that we can remedy the situation.

3. Full payment for the seasonal lot is due by May 31st. Customers are responsible for the entire lot fee once the season has started. No trailer shall be removed from the property until the lot fees have been paid in full. Late fees of 2% per month will apply to all outstanding accounts after May 31st.  Proof of insurance on trailer, golf cart, shed, all motorized toys, etc. must be provided to the office at the start of the season.
