  • Non-RV TRAILER PARKING: Trailers containing boats or other material or objects must park in the field directly above the Clam Bake Grove pavilion.  To avoid congestion, any camper who wishes to park a non-RV trailer on their campsite must rent an adjacent site for that purpose.   Fees to store non-RV trailers including boats at the Campground are:  $150.00 for the Summer Season (5/1/21 – 10/11/21);  $150.00 for Winter Storage (10/12/21 – 4/30/22) or $5.00 per day.  Fees must be paid in advance.
  • BICYCLES & SKATEBOARDS: Bicycles and skateboards are permitted.  Pennsylvania law requires children under 12 to wear a helmet.  Children under 18 may not operate bicycles on the paved road between the campground entrance and office/store building.  Observe the 10 MPH speed limit at all times.  Bicycles & skateboards must have a working light if operated after dark.
  • LAKE RULES: Camper’s watercraft are not permitted on Lake Moc-A-Tek.  The Campground has 12 rowboats available for rent.  Campground boats are rented one day at a time and must return to shore by sundown and equipment returned to the office/store before dark.  A PA Fishing License is required for anglers over 15 years old.  Swimming in the lake is prohibited.
  • INDIVIDUAL SITE MAINTENANCE: Campground maintains all common areas.  Seasonal campers are responsible to maintain their individual site including mowing grass.   Washing trailers/campers is allowed and encouraged.  Moss & mildew growth on trailers/campers will not be tolerated.
  • RAKED LEAVES: All raked leaves must be deposited on the burn pile in the field behind the dumpster.
  • DRAINAGE DITCH: There is a drainage ditch which runs parallel to the lake between the campground property and the old racetrack property and continues to the swamp.  This ditch is designed to divert storm water away from campsites and must remain clear.  To avoid flooding, please keep this ditch free from leaves, grass clippings, etc.
  • FIREWOOD: Due to the recent spread of the Emerald Ash Borer and the Asian Longhorn Beetle, the state of Pennsylvania and the US Forestry Department regulates the movement of firewood across state and county lines.  We all share the responsibility of keeping our campground safe from the damage that these pests are capable of.  Please purchase your firewood from our campground store or local suppliers.  Additionally, please be advised that chainsaw use is prohibited on campground property.
  • PROPER SEWER HOOK-UP PROCEDURES: RV holding tanks must remain closed to collect waste water.  Empty the tanks only when they reach at least ½ full and immediately close them again when empty.  To allow for proper drainage in the underground sewer line, always empty the black water tank first followed immediately by the grey tank.  Leaving holding tank drains open promotes costly holding tank repairs to the RV, plugged sewer lines and inconveniences all campers connected to the effected sewer line.  Human waste, water and toilet paper are the only items allowed to be discharged into the sewer system.  Items such as washcloths, handi-wipes, tampons, birth control items, etc. are prohibited because they clog sewer lines which can be expensive to repair.  Please help us keep our site rates under control by adhering to these procedures.
  • WASTE WATER: It is illegal to discharge any type of waste water on the ground.  Violations can result in costly fines from the DEP.  Waste water from sites without sewer hook-ups must be collected in a holding tank and deposited at the dump station.
  • SITE USAGE: Subletting of campsite is not allowed.  If a permit holder allows a guest to use their site, they must notify Campground management in advance.  Please note that tents are not permitted on RV sites.  Tent sites are available for rent and are located between the old pavilion and office/store.
  • EXTERNAL STRUCTURES: Decks, sheds and Dura-Built sunrooms, screen rooms and awnings are allowed.  Plans must be pre-approved by Campground management.  Construction of decks and sheds is limited to daylight hours only – Monday through Friday, and is prohibited on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays.  External structures must not be built over electrical or water lines.  External structures that restrict access to underground service lines requiring emergency repairs will be removed at the owner’s expense.  Existing sunrooms have been “grandfathered” as long as they are properly maintained in good condition.  All external structures including sunrooms must be removed when existing owners vacate their site.  “Grandfathered” sunrooms may not be sold or transferred for use on Campground property.  For more information on Dura-Built products, please inquire at the office.
  • EXTERNAL REFRIGERAT0RS/ELECTRIC SPACE HEATERS/ELECTRIC WATER HEATERS: These appliances use excessive levels of electricity that is not covered by your campsite rate and are therefore prohibited from use.  Campers found using any of these appliances will incur an immediate rate increase of $500 per season.  This rate adjustment will not be pro-rated.  Campsites with electric meters are exempt from this policy.
  • AIR CONDITIONER USE AT 15amp AND 20amp SITES: Prohibited from use.  Air conditioners must have permanent covers installed at all times on 15amp and 20amp campsites.  Campers found using air conditioners will incur an immediate fine of $500 per occurrence.  Repeated offences may result in cancellation of the Seasonal Camping Permit without a refund.
