Where are the Escapees Park Rules listed on the new Escapees website

Looking for the various rules applicable to the different Escapees parks. Could not find on the new Escapees website.

 

Take a biggie - What are the rules concerning running your generator while over-nighting in the Dry Camping area? How about running your generator while in a full hookup site? (Say there is a pedestal problem or a problem with the exterior connection on your rig? or you just want to exercise your generator for a few hours.)

 

I'm not looking for opinions - I would like to see the written rules applicable in each park. I wonder why they are not posted on the various parks sub-pages on the Escapees website?

I don't know that the rules for each park has ever been on the Escapees website...and each park does have their own rules. For example, regarding running of generators while dry camping, the Rainbow Park in Congress, AZ doesn't allow it at all while the Co-op Park in Sutherlin, OR allows it for a couple of hours morning, noon, and night (don't remember the exact hours).

I think they are more interested in other folks at the park not being disturbed by generator noise and stink than anything else.

 

If you need more power than the rules allow you to make in boondocking then you can get a spot with electric so you don't bother others.

Right. The boondocking area at the SKP park in Congress, AZ, is very close to the lots on which people have houses and RVs. I'm not sure why they don't use the large area on the north side at the entrance, but there must be some reason why this area isn't used.

Really? They dont allow generators? Do they expect everyone to have solar?.....seems like a harsh rule.

Other than Escapee parks, how many can you name that even have a cheap place to stay without any hookups? Off hand I can only remember having seen such offered in one RV park(not Escapee) in our years on the road. At Escapade we had both generator and no-generator areas because the solar folks didn't want generators allowed near them and asked for such an area. When you deal with large groups you have to do whatever will please the most customers while inconveniencing the fewest possible. I doubt that one could ever please everyone, even on a public forum! :huh:

Several years ago, the county nixed the use of this "green space" for dry camping. Prior to that it was verry popular.

Thanks for that explanation, Bill. I know in the past we've seen rigs boondocking in that area and then they moved the boondocking area near houses. Never made any sense to me, but I never inquired why it was done.
