MEMBERS MANUAL

The following members manual is designed answer questions and a general statement of policies that are not covered under the rules that each member or guest signs upon entering Northaven Resort


LOT CHANGES AND CONSTRUCTION

Although we welcome members to make their lots a “home away from home”, many improvements and construction projects conflict with state guidelines as well as the Northaven standards that are somewhat subjective in nature.

BEFORE YOU MAKE ANY CHANGES TO YOUR LOT.......


TRIMMING OR CUTTING ANY TREES
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TRIM OR CUT ANY TREE!
There are times that this might be necessary so for the definition of the above as it pertains to your lot:.......


STATE INSPECTIONS

As you know, over the past ten years, the state inspector that was assigned to our campground was very liberal in her interpretation of state codes that govern campgrounds such as Northaven. Unfortunately, last year a new inspector was assigned and he has made it crystal clear what is expected in regard to keeping our Resort open. Many of the new policies will be irritating at best but are desperately needed to maintain an uninterrupted summer of fun without action from the state. We hope that you will be patient and understanding while we take the necessary steps not to raise any red flags that would prompt any action in the event of unannounced and untimely visits from the state.The single biggest number of violations we receive each year is because members use the space beneath their units to store “STUFF”!  Hard to believe someone would even store gas cans and flamables too?  If you have anything stored under your camper and think it might be in violation

PROPANE
Our goal is to eliminate any existing large tanks (pigs) as they are removed from lots that currently have them now. If you wish to have a larger propane tank for your RV, you may have 1 (one) 100 lb. portable propane tank in addition to your RV propane system.

NO FRENCH DRAINS

We are at our limit of French drains for gray water at Northaven. Under no circumstances should gray water be dumped in the woods via a hose as many are doing currently. Please ask Larry how you should be handling gray water so that it is within the state guidelines.

LOT CLEAN UP AND STORAGE SHEDS
Tires, batteries, empty propane tanks, hoses, tarps, gas cans, lumber and other material that does not fit in an approved storage shed on your lot must be removed from under campers and around lots. Sheds like "RUBBERMAID" brand sheds are typically ok. SIZE IS THE ISSUE!
If you are not sure what an “approved storage shed” is, or what “traditional garden tools” are,
 

WATER CONNECTION HOSES

Last year it was brought to our attention during our annual state inspection that a very serious health hazard exists on many of your campers. There are garden hoses that are being used for water supply lines from our water taps. This can cause a variety of illnesses for various reasons as well as a direct violation of state health codes.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A WHITE (RV HOSE SUPPLY) FROM OUR TAP TO YOUR CAMPER, PURCHASE ONE BEFORE YOUR NEXT VISIT TO THE RESORT AND REPLACE IT BEFORE YOU TURN YOUR WATER ON.

THEY ARE AVAILABLE AT ACE HARDWARE IN BROOKLYN FOR A NOMINAL CHARGE.
