Ocean River RV Resort and Campground
Terms and Conditions of Campground and Amenity Use
(Better known as rules … and who likes those?!? But without them we can’t guarantee that you will experience the adventure, joy and well-being that we would like you to!)
You may reserve your site or accommodation online through our website, by phone or email. A valid credit card is required for all reservations.
Campground Cancellation Policy
Reservations may be cancelled 7 days prior to arrival, with full refund less a $25 administration charge. Cancellations of 7 nights or less will receive a reservation credit (re-booking subject to availability). Reservation credits expire 12 months from the date of issue. Changes to your reservation are always free!
Early departures are not eligible for refund.
Check In / Check Out
You may check in to your campsite any time after 2pm, (3pm for roofed accommodation) on your reserved arrival date to receive your vehicle permit. Should you arrive after the office is closed, please text (855) 550-1558, and one of our hosts will assist you. Check out time for all accommodation is noon. Additional fees will accrue at the rate of $20 per hour for late departures. You do not need to contact the office for check out unless fees are owing.
Accommodation permit holders must be 18 years of age or older.
Children in your care must be always under your supervision, especially around water. Their safety and conduct are your responsibility. Should any damages be incurred by those in your care, and restitution not satisfactorily resolved, the costs will be charged to your account.
Full payment of reservation fees are due at the time of booking. Reservations made for dates more than 12 months from the date of booking may be subject to price adjustments to reflect the current year fees. For seasonal campers, a non-refundable deposit of $500 is required to hold the site, with the balance due on or before May 15.
Fires and firewood
Fires must be contained within the designated fire rings. Please do not move the fire ring, it has been placed in what is deemed as the safest location. Ocean River RV Resort will comply with
provincial and regional fire bans to ensure the safety of our guests, and we may additionally impose park bans if conditions are deemed unsafe. We will monitor alerts and post fire ban notices each afternoon outside the office, when required. Fire bans will be strictly enforced.
We do not permit firewood to be brought in from outside the park. Moving firewood can be a violation of the Plant Protection Act which imposes regulation to prevent the introduction of insect species, and wood disease. For more information visit https://inspection.canada.ca/plant-health/forestry/don-t-move-firewood. Firewood may be purchased from the Camp Store.
Garbage and Recycling
Refuse and recycling containers are located throughout the park. Please bag and tie both blue recycling and garbage bags before placing in the bin – do not place loose items in the recycling container (Note: plastic bags, #3 or #6 plastics, Styrofoam, glass and aerosols are not recyclable) . Place loose aluminum cans in the ‘Can Corral’. Please no large or bulky trash items – we are not equipped to handle those.
Do not leave garbage outside your site as insects and animals both small and large will be attracted to it, creating safety issues (black bears and skunks are not uncommon here).
Hazardous waste items are prohibited in the park and in disposal bins.
The onsite dumpster is for staff use only. Disposal fees will be charged for any items illegally dumped.

Please use main roads, and designated public paths to walk around the campground.

Additional vehicles must have a vehicle permit (obtained from the office). Parking is available in the lot beside the office.

Ocean River RV Resort is pet friendly, but for the safety of your pet and other guests, your dog(s) must be leashed at all times. We offer a leash free fenced area behind the cabins, where your dog can get some energy out! Your pet must be supervised at all times while in the dog enclosure, and must be well socialized. Use of the dog park is at your own risk and responsibility. Please register your pet at the office, along with your contact information in case of emergency. We allow a maximum of 2 pets per site or cabin.
For the enjoyment of other guests, do not bring fido if he is a frequent barker or aggressive and always pick up after your dog and dispose of waste. A $50 cleaning fee will be charged to your account should camp staff have to clean up after your pet.
Pets are not permitted in buildings, pool or playground area or on furnishings. Do not leave your pet unattended or permit to bark excessively.
Pool & Playground
The pool area is open from 10am to 7pm daily (until dusk on hot days). There is no lifeguard on duty: you are responsible for keeping yourself and children in your care safe. The pool has a maximum depth of 5 feet and therefore diving is not permitted. For the safety of all, horseplay, and running is not permitted. Please use only swim diapers in the pool for your baby. Food is not permitted inside the pool enclosure, and beverages must be cans or in plastic containers.
Children 12 and under are welcome to use the playground. Bullying in the pool or playground area will not be tolerated. Children throwing sand or stones, using profanity or littering will be asked to leave.
Quiet Time Policies
Quiet time is 11 pm to 8am. Noise infractions will be firmly enforced with expulsion possible for non compliance.
Event Hall / Pavillion Rental
Hourly rental of space for group events can be arranged with any of our staff. A deposit by credit card is required. The event spaces used must be left clean and free of garbage. You are responsible for your guests’ compliance with park rules. Visitors attending a private event are not required to pay the daily visitor fee, but must obtain, and display a permit.
Weddings, retreats, and corporate events are arranged contractually with the office. Please speak to one of our staff for details.
For the comfort of all our guests, restrooms are open 24/7, apart from temporary closing for cleaning and sanitizing. We ask for your help in keeping the restrooms clean, and to advise staff should they need attention.
Spot washing of RVs is permitted with a bucket of water and sponge. Only environmentally friendly soaps are permitted. Hose washing is not permitted, as it can result in a mess and disturb your neighbors.
Outdoor rugs are permitted, however if your stay is longer than one week, we ask that you take it up for a day to allow the grass to recover.
Safety and Emergencies
Contact information is required for all guests, in the case of emergency. This information remains confidential - we never give personal information to others.
If you need to call 911 for any reason, and time allows after you have spoken to the 911 operator, please call the office so on call staff can be prepared to escort the emergency personnel to your site.
We welcome seasonal guests on a limited basis. Seasonal campers must abide by the terms and conditions outlined in this document, and agree and sign a formal rental Agreement. Please see park staff to arrange a site.

Smoking or vaping is not permitted inside any of the property buildings, in the pool enclosure, leash free dog park, or within 6 metres of the playground area. Please discard cigarette or cigar butts in a safe and clean manner.
Drugs are not permitted on the property and are cause for eviction.
In order to keep a tidy looking park, storage of items other than camp gear such as BBQ’s is not permitted under or around your RV or picnic table (firewood excepted). Please store toys inside your RV or in an enclosed outdoor container.
