Hayes Canyon Campground Policies and Guidelines:
*Quiet hours 10pm-6am. This is strictly enforced. Our campground is known for being quiet and relaxed, this is not a party camp.
*Dogs permitted, owners responsible, please be considerate of your neighbors and control dog waste & noise.
*Do not tie your horse to utilities or trees. Do NOT allow your horse to chew on or damage any trees! Even small amounts of damage acumulate and a dead mature tree takes about 30 years to replace. Trees provide the shade that your children and grandchildren will enjoy.
*We are on city water - please conserve! No washing vehicles/trailers please.
*Please turn your A/C off when you are away from camp (unless you have a pet left inside).
*Put manure in cart, we will empty daily. Before leaving, thoroughly clean your pens including all hay/shavings (it will act as 'mulch' & keep the ground wet).
* Put trash in dumpsters. Food or trash left out is an invitation for wildlife, which may be harmed by eating plastic, etc. Also, we would rather not have visitors to our campground such as bees, raccoons, skunks, etc.
* We collect aluminum cans for the Trail Fund, please place in marked barrels near dumpsters.
*Hayes Canyon Campground is not responsible for accidents, injury, lost or stolen property. Common sense is the best prevention to injury!
*Pack out what you pack into the forest. Keep the Shawnee beautiful for generations to come.
*Please preserve the trails by staying on designated trails and by avoiding trail 'braiding' or switch-backs. Cross-tie between trees when stopping on trail, or use high-lines provided at designated locations.
*Lusk Creek Wilderness, Bay Creek Wilderness, and Garden-of-the-Gods Wilderness trails only [note these areas on your map]. These trails are open seasonally from April 1st to November 30th. Group size in wilderness areas is limited to 10 persons. These trails may be temporarily posted as closed after periods of heavy rain.
*Most importantly -- say safe and have fun !!
