We love pets at Big Creek RV. We want to keep welcoming our furry friends, so please help them follow the rules. 1. No aggressive breeds. 2. We limit 2 pets per site. (we know when you have extras and it puts all of us in a bad position) 3. We ask that you keep your pet on a leash and under control at all times and keep your pet's "chatting" (barking) to a minimum to avoid disturbing others. 4. You are responsible for cleaning up after your pets in all areas of the park, including your campsite. 5. Pets are not allowed in any building in the park (including showers), by the pool or on the patio by the pool. 6. Do not leave pets outside your RV unattended at any time. 7. Pets that are tethered must be tied to a metal tie-out in ground no longer than 6 feet. Do not tie pets to trees, electric pedestals, picnic tables, water hydrants, etc.

RV Restrictions

Your camper/RV must have the official RVIA factory logo attached in order to camp with us--this includes SURVs. The RVIA certification means the RV was built and lives up to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) safety standards, and the structure qualifies as an RV. The certification helps ensure that RVs get built with safety in mind. If your RV is over 10 years old, please call the office prior to making a reservation as we would like to talk with you first. We may ask for some pictures prior to accepting your reservation. :)


Pool is for registered guests only. Children 14 and under MUST be accompanied by an adult. Pool hours may vary depending on weather and other factors. General hours are from 10 am -8 pm.


A single tent may be allowed on Creekside and other assigned sites for an additional fee of $5.00 per day. The tent must be small (6 person or less). The 8 persons per site limit must be adhered to. Tents may only be used in conjunction with an occupied RV and must be placed very close to or behind to the door side of the RV (indisputably inside of your space). Call office for reservation including a tent.


Camping with friends and family is part of the fun. We do ask that gatherings around campfires be limited to 8 persons after 10 PM. We also ask that you use COURTESY at all times. Other campers did not come here to listen to your loud music, TV show, loud voices, etc... This is a family friendly RV park . Please use appropriate language. Anyone who is disruptive and refuses to follow campground rules will be asked to leave immediately and without refund.

If the consumption of alcohol causes an individual to be unwilling to follow campground rules, law enforcement officers will be called and that person will be asked to leave the premises without refund. No smoking in any buildings. This includes e-cigarettes and vapor cigarettes. Please do not throw cigarette butts anywhere except in the provided receptacles or in your own container.

Visitor Policy

The visitor fee is $5 per person per day. For the safety of our guests ALL visitors MUST check in at the office and pay the fee before continuing to campsites. Visitors are included in 8-persons per site limit (unless prior authorization from management was granted). No visitors after 9 p.m. If visitors do not check in, all persons in the camping party will be asked to leave without a refund.

Length of Stay

Maximum length of initial booking is 1 week. Longer stays may be negotiated by phone.


Rules are a necessary but unfortunate reality. We love spending time visiting with our guests and our least favorite thing on our to do list is enforcing rules. So we would be more than appreciative if you would familiarize yourself with the rules which are common sense, and basic etiquette. We hope that each one of our guest will be pleased with their stay and that each one would treat each other with respect and courtesy. Simple :) Thank You for choosing Big Creek RV Park for your family friendly nature retreat.
