Electric Campsite Rules

Electrical hookup fees apply if you occupy the campsite even if you choose not to use the electricity.

Extension cords must be in good condition, 25 feet or less and fit properly into the outlet.

Extension cords may only be used in the reserved campsite and may not extend outside of the reserved campsite.

Cords may not run from one campsite to another at any time.


Pet Rules

Pets are allowed in Lake Tschida's confines with certain restrictions. They must be restrained at all times on a leash no longer than six feet in length.

This protects dogs from becoming lost and from other hazards such as sick, injured, or rabid animals. Leashes also help protect park resources, including wildlife and vegetation. Pets are also not permitted on beaches or playgrounds, in bathing areas or concession facilities.

For everyone's enjoyment, including pets, please observe the pet camping rules. Failure to abide by these rules may result in the camper being asked to check out of the campground.

Pet owners are required to pick up after their pets and properly dispose of all pet droppings in trash receptacles. Pet droppings left in fire rings will result in the camper being assessed additional fees. Pets that are noisy, vicious, dangerous, disturbing or intimidating to other persons or pets, or which damage park resources, are considered to be nuisances and will not be permitted to remain in the park.

Non-furbearing pets, such as reptiles, birds or fish, must also be confined or under the physical control of the owner. Some animals may be prohibited on park properties. Animals considered to be livestock are prohibited at Lake Tschida.

Pets should not be left unattended. Summer sunshine poses a threat to pets left in vehicles. On a bright, sunny day, even in temperatures as low as 60░ F, temperatures inside a vehicle can reach dangerous levels. On an 85-degree day, the temperature inside a car - even with the windows cracked - can reach over 100 degrees within 10 minutes. Please remain mindful of this at all times.

Pet owners are responsible for removing pet waste from campgrounds, picnic areas, parking lots, roads, and other developed areas. In campgrounds, wastes must be removed from all areas within 200 feet of established campsites and in all areas within the campground loops.
