Every motor vehicle parked anywhere in the campground (including campsites) must have a Debonair Vehicle Permit. RVs parked on a campsite are not obliged to have a permit provided it is owned by the policy holder and/or spouse of the site it is parked on the site, and is the sole camping unit on the campsite. If it is parked off your site or is not the sole camping unit on your site, it will require a Special Vehicle Permit. Vehicle Permits are available at the office.
For free 30 minute parking, you must park at the office.
Cost for Vehicle Parking Permits:
Regular & Seasonal Vehicle Parking Permits (non-camping units):
- 2 free annual Seasonal Vehicle Parking Permits per seasonal campsite can be picked up at the office by the policyholder and/or spouse. Every season will have new annual permits.
- $40.00 for an additional or replacement Seasonal Vehicle Parking Permit.
- $3.00 for a non-transferable Temporary (3-hour or less). This Vehicle Parking Permit does not include use of the hot tub or beach.
- $7.00 for a non-transferable Day Vehicle Parking Permit (expires noon the following).
- Student Rate for an unmarried child of a seasonal camper: $15.00 for a non-transferable Seasonal Parking Permit.
- Senior's Day Permit (must be 60 years of age or older and the vehicle must be registered to the senior): $5.00 for a non-transferable Day Vehicle Parking Permit (expires noon the following).
- Above rates include GST.
Special Vehicle Permits for 2nd or more camping units/tents on a campsite:
- $18.00 (17.14 + GST) per day unless it is the sole camping unit parked on your campsite and is owned by you, the policy holder and/or your spouse. Special Vehicle Permits expire 2:00 PM the following day. Regular and Seasonal Vehicle Parking Permits cannot be used for camping/sleeping units. If you have non-registered guests with a camper vehicle of any kind visiting you, they will need to purchase a Special Vehicle Permit or pay camping fees.
Ø No refunds on parking permits.
Ø Above vehicle permits are not available to the general public unless they are a registered camper or guest of a registered camper. Parking Permits are intended for the comfort and safety of Debonair Campers and to regulate the number of unauthorized vehicles in the park. Without parking permits, camping rates would unfairly be significantly higher to compensate for unregulated additional people/costs. Campers enjoy the benefits of parking permits resulting in a well maintained, non-bustling park with a sense of security and community.
Ø You are responsible for your guests and making sure they have a Vehicle Parking Permit. All Vehicle Permits, with the exception of the temporary permit, include use of the hot tub and beach pond. Permits can be purchased anytime. Instructions on how to obtain a Vehicle Parking Permit when the Camp Office is closed can be found on the Camp Office door.
Ø If you lend your Seasonal Vehicle Parking Permit, please remember you are responsible for that vehicle as well as the behavior of the persons arriving from that vehicle. Any problems arising from this vehicle and persons involved will reflect back on the owner of the permit.
Ø Vehicles found parked in the campground without a visible (on dash or hung on mirror) Vehicle Parking Permit (even for a short time) or with an incorrect/invalid permit will need to purchase an appropriate permit immediately in addition to a $10.00 penalty charge or be towed and risk losing re-entry privileges.
Ø The policy holder and/or spouse or an immediate child of the policy holder and/or spouse must always accompany their guest(s) who have not paid camping fees, at the hot tub and/or beach pond. This includes guests with Vehicle Passes, unless they have paid camping fees.
Ø Registered overnight campers/guests will automatically receive non-transferable Vehicle Parking Permits with their paid registration (overnight camping fees).
Ø Walk-in guests are not allowed to use any campground facilities including the beach, unless they have, in close proximity, a Seasonal Vehicle Permit that is not already in use or they have purchased a temporary Vehicle Permit at the office. Maximum of 4 walk-in guests per permit allowed. A Vehicle Permit allows access to the facilities whether they have a vehicle parked on the property or not. You are allowed walk-in guests, within reason, visiting you at your campsite without a Parking Permit provided they are not parked on the highway and do not use the campground's facilities. Please do not abuse this privilege.
Ø Should you be expecting guests, we recommend you give them your campsite number and let them know whether or not you have a vehicle permit for them.
Thanks so much for your appreciated cooperation.

2012 Seasonal Camping Policy
1. Debonair Campground’s 2012 season operates from 2:00 p.m. Apr. 27 to 8:00 p.m. Oct. 8. Vehicle traffic is closed off-season. Opening date for vehicle access may be extended due to snowed or soft road conditions. Campground electrical outlets & waste dumping inlets are not in operation off-season. Water hook-ups, waste dumping inlets, flush toilets and showers are in service during the open season after the ground has thawed and there is no risk of frost. Do not dump into septic system in Moe’s Place or Dump Station until the campground water system is operational. The House/Office outside water taps is available anytime.
2. No parking on the campground roadway. ALL vehicles MUST have a Debonair Vehicle Permit whenever parked anywhere in the campground anytime. Please refrain from using the visitor’s parking lots if you have space in your campsite. No parking in vacant sites or other tenant’s driveways without permission. Unauthorized off-road vehicles are prohibited. Walk-ins from vehicles parked on the highway are not permitted on campground property. Highway Parking reduces pedestrian/vehicle visibility. If you have visitors parked on the highway, you are required to ask them to leave immediately or get a vehicle permit and park in the Parking Lot.
3. Be respectful and considerate of other campers. Please remind your children to not litter, damage property, or trespass on/through other people’s campsites (including sites of absent tenants). Any activity or noise which may affect the comfort of other campers is not permitted. Your favorite music is often not your neighbor’s; therefore loud music and/or shouting are not allowed anytime. Misusing, tampering, defacing, moving, or altering management’s or other people’s property is not tolerated. Inappropriate/Illegal behavior will not be tolerated on or off your site. Anyone exhibiting violent behavior will face an immediate eviction and the involvement of law enforcement. You (leasee) are responsible for the behavior of anyone (visitors, campers) visiting your campsite. Construction, use of chainsaws or other loud equipment are prohibited from the hours of 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 a.m. Quiet time is from 11:00 p.m. to 10:00 a.m. Audio equipment and noisy activities are prohibited during Quiet Time. Debonair Management reserves the right to limit the number of people on a site at any time. Please call 347-5543 anytime (day or night) to report loud or offensive activity (while it is happening). Your call will remain anonymous.
4. Please look after our forest. A permanent eviction will be given to anyone creating additional space, including paths, by destruction or removal of live trees or brush without permission. Brush is damaged when stepped on/through repeatedly or used as storage space. Trees are damaged when the bark is stripped or when nails/screws are driven into them. Cords tied around live trees will in time induce choking. It is the leasee’s responsibility to regularly inspect and loosen or remove tight cords tied to trees in and around their site. Please notify us of dead trees around your site and tag them with a ribbon. If the tree is determined dead upon inspection, we will cut it down under our guidelines. In many cases RV’s are required to be moved off the site during the tree removal procedure.

Carry disposable bags while walking your pet. Pets are not allowed in the public washroom/shower facility, inside the Hot Tub fenced area and on the beach.

6. Your site must always be tidy and free of open storage including behind/beside/underneath structures and RV's as well as off your site. The bush is not part of your site and should never be used as such. Your site ends where the gravel ends in most sites.

Round-up, using proper procedure as per manufacturer’s instructions is recommended to control unwanted growth. Sod or loose soil is NOT permitted on most campsites. Fallen leaves within your campsite must be raked by May 15. Please do not rake/blow leaves into the bush. A maintenance fee will be charged to campers neglecting their campsite.

Dining tents not used for sleeping are no extra charge. You must inform management in advance of anyone using your campsite in the event you and your spouse are both absent. You must submit dates expected and name(s) of the individual(s). Upon arrival, they must check-in with the office, verify their identity and if they are not a child of the leasee, pay camping fees. The behavior of said guests will reflect back on the leasee. All damages caused by your guest(s) will be billed to the leasee. Anyone not registered in this manner will be evicted immediately.
