A $10 pet cleaning fee is applicable for each dog/night. On your rented cabin site your pets must be tethered or controlled so that they cannot leave your site clearing. Please keep your dogs off of the furniture. Please clean up after and dispose of your pet's waste and fur. If your pet causes any damage on the property, the credit card used to make your booking will be charged the repair or replacement costs for damaged items.

Release of Liability

Any indoor/outdoor, recreational, social or experiential activity you engage in on or off of our property is done at your own risk. You assume personal responsibility for your own safety during your stay at our facility (and for any minors travelling with you). You agree to save harmless and release our employees, parent company, suppliers and owners against all actions, proceedings, costs, claims, damages, demands, liabilities and expenses whatsoever (including legal and other fees and disbursements) sustained as a result of your staying at our facility. Waiver of liability must be signed to rent equipment and participate in guided tours. 


Our fire pits are made of steel and get warm when having a campfire. Do not touch the metal parts of the steel fire pit at any time during and following its use and keep children and pets at a safe distance. Be careful of hot coals and embers that may fall out of or under the fire pit. Firewood is available for purchase, please do not bring your own firewood from other areas as this can spread invasive species that can harm native trees.

Damage Deposit

The credit card which is used at the time that you place your booking will be used to hold a $300.00 CAD damage deposit at the time you check-in. It is expected that the cabin, cabin site and BBQ grill be left in the same condition as it was on your arrival. The deposit will be released after you check-out if there are no damages or extra cleaning fees. Your credit card will be charged the replacement cost for damaged or missing items, and forfeited if smoke is detected in the cabin or if the cabin is left in an unclean state. A $50 charge is applicable if the barbecue requires extensive cleaning. If we need to clean-up any human/pet mess indoors or outdoors you will forfeit the damage deposit - because - GROSS! We cant believe we have to say it but: DO NOT GO POTTY IN THE WOODS...the washrooms are less than 100m away from the furtherest cabin.
