They may not be used for long term rental units.
We are a pet friendly park. All pets must be approved by the management. Current rabies, vaccinations and any service do credentials must be presented to park management before your intended stay.
While we like all pets, we do not allow Pit Bull or pit bull mix, Doberman Pinchers, German Shepherds, or Rottweilers in the park.
If you are making a nightly or weekly reservation, payment in FULL is expected at the time your reservation is made. We accept credit/debit cards and cashier checks. (See our refund policy below)

If less than 30 days, THERE IS NO REFUND, but a credit will be issued for the amount paid to stay in the park at a up to a year from the cancellation date. We realize there are certain circumstances that dictate that a guest may be required to leave early. The park reserves the right to look at these situations on a case by case basis and reserves the right to determine if a partial refund is appropriate.
(All MONTHLY) sites are metered with 30 & 50 amp electric hook-ups. Guests are responsible for their own electrical usage. Foster Lake RV Park Staff will read the electric meter monthly. Charges are then calculated and added to your monthly rent amount.

We welcome RESPECTFUL AND WELL BEHAVED children at the resort. Again, our goal is to keep your children and grandchildren safe as well as to ensure they are having a good time while they are here. But equally important, is that they treat other guests with respect and appropriate conduct & language. Children under the age of 14 must be supervised by an adult (at least 18 yrs. of age) including in the pool area. We ask that children do not ride their bikes on any of the sidewalks or in the front driveways. There is entirely too much ingress and egress traffic coming and going in and out of the park. They are welcome to ride their bikes at the back of the park in the gravel area. There are no other motorized vehicles or toys including skate boards allowed at the resort. Children under the age of 18 are not allowed in the fitness room.
HEATED SWIMMING POOL (Seasonal)
Our pool rules are posted in the pool area and inside the office and I will attach a copy to this agreement.
NOTE: If an individual or group of individuals has more than 2 pool violations whether written or oral in a day by resort staff, they will be asked to leave the pool and pool area for the rest of that day and possibly permanently.
LAUNDRY AND ACCESS TO THE SHOWERS
We are proud of our laundry facility. The hours vary from off to peak season. Generally they are from 8:00 -8:00 pm 7 days a week. You can help us to keep the laundry area neat and clean by making sure you clean off the lint traps in the dryers after each use. Please wipe off any dirt or debris from extra soiled clothes from the washing machine and PLEASE be careful not to OVERLOAD either the washer of dryer. There is no washing of pet beds, sleeping bags or any other bulky or heavy items. This dramatically decreased the life of the machines. The laundry sink is for laundry only (no pet baths, fish cleaning etc.
The showers and toilets are for Foster Lake paying Guests only. They are not open to the public and showers cannot be individually purchased. The showers are open from 8:00am-8:00pm. If you are a MONTHLY guest, we would like to ask you to limit your use of the resort showers and toilets and use the facilities in your RV. The showers are generally for paying overnight/weekly guests.
The resort provides trash service. We ask that you do not place large items for disposal such as furniture, electronics, TV’s, appliances, oil, auto parts, paint cans or any other trash that does not belong to a paying guest of the resort. The trash is for small household trash only.
PLEASE break down, stomp on, disassemble any boxes, cardboard, or any other item that takes up an enormous amount of room in the recycle receptacle. This is becoming a problem for our staff and the sanitation department . It only takes a little time to break these items down. Thank you to those who are currently doing this.
The resort provides basic WI-FI free of charge. We do not guarantee consistent strong signal. If your internet needs are more than the park provides, you are welcome to obtain a booster device at your expense or contract with a private internet service at your own expense.
The resort is under contract with Comcast Inc. which provides the basic programing package. If your preference is more than the park provides, you are free to contract with another media company. Please let the front office know if you will be scheduling an appointment with a private company for TV/Internet. If a satellite dish will be installed, please have the park staff approval and do not set it up in the grass area of your site.
We are a pet friendly park and welcome well behaved pets. Each RV site is allowed two 2 pets. (There can be NO exotic pets of any kind (Snakes, reptiles etc…). We know that these particular breeds of dogs are great animals but we do not allow Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Pit bull or pit bull mix, Doberman Pincher dog breeds) All animals must be current on rabies and vaccinations. If a service or companion dog, certifications or a medical document stating that the dog is a medical necessity. Current rabies certificates are required. Pets must be kept on a short hand held leash if they are outside. Please do not tie them up outside unattended. And please restrain your pet from excessive barking or noise. All pet waste must be picked up and disposed of properly. There is a dog walk area at the front of the park. Mobile pet fences are allowed during the winter months, but must be removed in the spring/summer (April 1-September 30) due to mowing season. No visitor’s pets are allowed.
