  1. The term of your site rental is outlined in your site agreement. Your site fees are for the use of the site and facilities during the stated period only.


  1. Shadybrook is renting the site to you, your spouse, and your children (under 21 years) living at home. There is no charge for guests that accompany you, but people using your trailer when you are not there are charged a fee of $25 per night (this applies to adult children). You are responsible for the conduct of your guests. Please advise the owner via emailwhen your guests will be staying and ask them to check in and pay their overnight fee when they arrive. Shadybrook Resort Ltd. does not rent sites to multiple family groups, and sites cannot be shared. Subletting your site is not permitted unless approved by management. VRBO, Airbnb or similar renting is not permitted and will result in immediate eviction.


  1. No tents, sleeping bunks, or additional camping units are permitted to occupy your site. Sleeping in vehicles and on decks or in sheds is also not allowed.


  1. A max of two vehicles may park at your site. Boats and storage trailers count as a vehicle. Decks, sheds, other structures, trampolines and/or other chattels, must not encroach on the space allocated for parking.


  1. Guests cannot bring in boats. The boat launch and docks are for the exclusive use of residents who pay for boat slips and launch fees.


  1. Each renovated site is allowed one 8’ x 10’ storage shed. In non-renovated sites any grandfathered, additional sheds or extra rooms, will be added to the trailer length and will increase total fees.


  1. Do not drive to the beach or park anywhere except your site or visitors parking. Parking in the marina area is for boats only. Shadybrook is a pedestrian resort and regular transport within the resort by any motorized means (golf carts, electric scooters, cars, segways) is not permitted, unless authorized for medical reasons. The speed limit is 10 km/hr.


  1. Quite time is 11 pm. Due to the close proximity of the sites, it does not take much noise to disturb others. Excessive noise will not be tolerated at any time. A later quiet time may be granted for a special event. Please email management to request permission (minimum one week before the event.)


  1. A maximum of 2 dogs are permitted per site. Dogs must be kept on a leash. Off leash areas are the main field and the south beach area. No pets in the beach area or in the playground/sandbox area. Pet droppings must be cleaned up immediately. Pet owners who leave unattended barking dogs, or fail to comply with above rules will not be permitted to bring the pet to Shadybrook. No breeds of pit bulls, including American Pit Bull and Staffordshire Terrier, American Bully and Staffordshire Bull Terrier are allowed. Any aggressive behaving dog, regardless of breed, is not permitted.


  1. Use the yellow recycle bin for all recyclable material, cardboard, paper, plastics, cans etc. Recycle all cans and bottles in the area near visitors parking. Do not put recyclables in the garbage bins nor fill the dumpsters with large items. Make arrangements with manager for disposal.  Always close the dumpster lid so animals do not spread the trash. Putting cardboard in the garbage is a finable offence under regional district bylaws.


  1. Your site and trailer exterior must be properly maintained and kept tidy. Winter debris must be cleaned up, and excessive storage of unused items is not permitted. Tarps must be taken down by May long weekend.


  1. RVs cannot be sold on site.The only possible exception is in cases where customers have previously entered the resort by buying that same RV on site. Permission must be received before any attempt to sell is made and the price must be approved by resort owner. Potential buyers must be approved before any money changes hands. In all cases, campsite leases are non-transferable.


  1. Permission is required to put a new trailer onto your site. Trailers more than 15 years old cannot be placed on sites. Each site has different size limitations and this must be established before shopping for a new trailer begins. Maximum trailer length at Shadybrook is 42’ 0”. Not all sites will accommodate a trailer this big.


  1. All construction must be approved. Roofs over trailers, add-on rooms, screened in decks, trailer skirting, screened gazebos, and fences are not permitted. No permanent materials above railing height (42”) can be used to screen in decks. Retractable screens are permitted. Any unauthorized construction must be removed at your expense. Decks must be built in movable sections, and RVs must be movable and not trapped in by your deck. Smaller and more temporary decks are encouraged.


  1. When you leave Shadybrook ensure your lights, AC, and any other electrical devices are OFF, and water taps are closed. Yard hydrants located in renovated sites will freeze and burst in cold weather if left open. If this happens, your trailer must be removed from the site for repair, and you are liable for the repair cost (approximately $1000).


  1. All sites must be bear proof. Outdoor fridges and storage must be locked and secure at night and when the site is unoccupied. Outdoor garbage and dog food must be stored in your RV or dumped prior to 11pm each night. No garbage may remain at your site when you are not there.


  1. Shadybrook is responsible for maintenance of common areas and common facilities, but not maintenance of individual sites. We maintain utilities at each site but not the connection to the utilities and are generally not available for RV maintenance or the moving of RVs or other chattels. If unique circumstances require Shadybrook staff to assist, additional fees apply.


  1. In addition to these rules, all federal, provincial, municipal laws and bylaws must be followed. This includes rules regarding smoking and the use of vapor products. Using these products is not permitted in common spaces of the resort including the beach, marina, playgrounds, washrooms and fields.  You may smoke/vape within your own RV and site.


  1. Winter storage is included in site fees for residents who have paid the deposit for the next season. Residents not returning must remove the RV from the site by November 15, or pay winter storage fees.


*VERY IMPORTANT!! Sewage disposal at Shadybrook is by way of a septic tank and field system. This is very different than systems used in cities and the following rules must be followed:


  1. The only things that can go down your drains and toilets are: water, human waste, and toilet paper (1ply preferred). The following items can neverbe flushed down your toilet: tampons, sanitary napkins, dental floss, condoms, diapers, wet naps/diaper wipes paper towels, bleach and large quantities of chemical solvents.


  1. The black water tank must remain closed until it is full or you depart from Shadybrook. Always, empty the black water tank first, then the grey tank. This will ensure there is enough water to clear solids through to the lift station and will ensure sewer infrastructure works properly.
