Only certified RV types are permitted unless prevented by specific site constraints, this includes Class A, B, and C Motorhomes, 5th wheels, and travel trailers. We reserve the right to inspect any personal property that you bring into the resort, and we may refuse access if your property is not properly constructed, is unsafe, or is unsuitable for the resort. Tents, pop up campers, and conversion vans are only permitted on designated sites. Sites are designed to accommodate one unit at a time.

One dining canopy tent is permitted, but may not be up in conjunction with a "pup" tent, and must be properly secured at all times. Sites must be cleaned up of garbage and debris prior to departure. Additional charges may result for sites requiring additional cleaning.
All reservations include a maximum of 6 guests unless otherwise stated. Rates are based on the maximum occupancy of the site. For all-age resorts, the individual reserving the site must be a minimum of 18 years of age and be physically present at the time of check-in. Children 14 and under must be supervised by an adult 18 year of age or over at all times.

Visitors must register at the welcome center and are subject to any applicable guest fees. For short-term guests, the daily visitor fee is $10 per person, or a non-transferrable seasonal visitor pass may be purchased for $150 per person, where applicable.
At annual resorts in Arizona and Florida, there will be no charge for the first 14 days a visitor stays with a guest; however, beginning on the 15th day of a visitor's stay, there will be an additional charge of $10 per day per visitor, payable in advance.
Visitors are required to abide by all Resort Rules and Regulations. Guests are responsible for the behavior of their visitors. Visitors are only permitted to be on property when resort guests are present. It is the responsibility of the guests to come into the welcome center to register all visitors.
As part of Sun Outdoors' marketing and other efforts we may sometimes take pictures, video or audio recordings of the resort and our guests and visitors. In choosing to stay at one of our resorts, each guest and visitor present on the property hereby consents to our capture and use of voice recordings, images, videos, and likeness for any marketing or other purposes not prohibited by law, indefinitely, and without payment of any royalty, licensing or other fees whatsoever.

Certain resorts are intended, operated, and maintained for the occupancy, use and benefit of persons 55 years of age or older.

These arrangements are sometimes referred to as 6&6 or 7&5 arrangements. At these applicable resorts, the grandfathered 7&5 and 6&6 payment plan year begins on your move in anniversary date of each year. The 6 or 7 months of occupancy may occur between your anniversary dates of each year. Unused time may not be carried over and will not be refunded.
