Rules Of The Park

If you would like to print the rules here is a link to a PDF format.

Purpose

The purpose and intent of these rules is to inform all park users and Member Organizations of the obligations of all to be aware of how the park is to be used and maintained.

Sign-in and Registration:

All park users must sign in at the kiosk located at the host area except that Member Organizations may choose to conduct sign-ins at a special event or work party and turn in sign-in forms to the Host on duty.

Day Use Visitors are to sign in and completely fill out the form provided when they pay their fees.

The information collected from visitor registration is extremely important when planning for future development.

Sign-in Procedure for Park Host:

    1. Greet the visitor at the kiosk

    2. Show the visitor where to sign in

    3. Check the sign-in form to determine if it is filled out correctly

    4. Paying visitors must be given a cash envelope for their fee

    5. The host will enter the envelope number on the visitor’s sign-in form

    6. The host will deposit the fee envelope in the metal cash receptacle at the time of the transaction after having printed the visitor’s name on the envelope.

Sign-in procedure for Park Hosts regarding overnight camping

    1. The Host will assign the location for the visitor’s use

    2. The host will supply the visitor with the Park rules about Fire Safety

Motor Vehicles

Fire danger and destruction of the grounds are the determining factors governing use of motor vehicles in the park.

The speed limit on the roads is 15 mph.

Motor vehicles are only allowed on established gravel roads and parking areas. Exceptions will be made for necessary maintenance functions and work details.

Hosted Special Events

Member Organizations or other entities hosting special events at the Park must provide to the Association an insurance binder covering the event. The document must be submitted 45 days in advance of the event so as to allow the BOD time to verify the coverage.

Sign–in for hosted events may be accomplished by the sponsoring organization. The forms used at the Host kiosk can be used or the forms can be modified to suit the needs of the sponsor. However, the same information required on the Park forms must be gathered by the hosting organization to be turned in to the Vice President within five days after the event.

A record of camping use must be kept. When camping is associated with an event hosted by a Member Organization, the hosting organization is responsible for collecting fees and reporting use connected with its event to the Vice President within five days after the event.

When crowds are expected, portable toilets are recommended. Absent that, the sponsoring Member Organization will be responsible for stocking and cleaning the restrooms before, during and after the event.

Fire Safety

No open fires are permitted during the NO BURNING season declared by the Oregon Department of Forestry. O.D.F. signs will be displayed at the gates and at all kiosks when NO BURNING is in effect.

Fires in park supplied fire rings, or in gas barbecues, gas hibachis, camp stoves or any other devices are permitted only in designated areas and only when the Host has been notified.

Charcoal cooking or heating devices are not permitted.

Fire suppression equipment must be at hand before any fire is started. A shovel and a full two gallon water container are the minimum. The Association will keep a supply of shovels and water buckets on hand which can be supplied by the host.

No fire may be left unattended. A person over the age of 18 years must be present at all times.

There will be no rubbish fires allowed during the NO BURNING season.

Rubbish fires to burn limbs and other dry, cut vegetation will be set in an area cleared of other fire hazards.

No rubbish fire may be set unless the fire truck is at hand, fully equipped, and ready to suppress any fire that goes out of control.

No fire may be abandoned until all ashes and embers are cold and wet.

The Fire Safety rules contained here will be posted at the kiosk by the BOD.

Overnight Camping

RV's are allowed

Tent camping is permitted with restrictions on any disturbance of the grounds.

Motorized Park Owned Equipment

Park membership does not entitle members to use property or equipment which is owned and controlled by Member Organizations unless that property or equipment is specifically designated for public use.

Each Member Organization will provide, for public use, some portion of its area of control and responsibility as well as any necessary equipment so that Day Use Visitors can enjoy all the facilities the Park offers.

Park Owned Hand Tools

An inventory of tools and their designated locations will be maintained.

From time to time the BOD will consider the condition and quantity of hand tools and whether they are properly placed and available for use.

Irrigation Systems

It is understood that at certain times it may be necessary to access the river for the purpose of filling a water truck during OHV events. The gate must be monitored and never left unattended while such operations are occurring. The hosting organization is to make arrangements in advance of any event so that the person controlling the gate is known to the BOD and the Hosts. The Host will record the name of the person on the Host’s monthly report.
