Every vehicle, while in the resort, must have a car pass visible and hanging on your rear view mirror at all times. The pass is to be turned towards the window facing outward so your site is clearly visible. There will be a $25 charge for each vehicle not displaying the pass on the mirror; there are no exceptions as this assists us in keeping the resort safe.
Gate Code: Upon arrival, you are issued a gate code to allow access to our property. This gate code is not to be given out to anyone. We do not allow this code to be given to vendors, or any guests you have coming into the park that have not registered at the office. If you are found sharing our gate code to allow unauthorized passage into the park, you will be charged $100 and subsequent violations may result in your being asked to leave the resort.
