The Sunbury Youth and Community Center also offers a swimming pool for a small fee.

Q: What type of electrical service do you have at the campsites?

A: Our campsites are equipped with a 30 amp electrical service. 50 amp electric service is only available on pull-through campsites #9 and #11 at this time. If you require the 50 amp electrical service, please tell us when reserving your campsite. Like most campgrounds, the electrical boxes are located on every other campsite. Depending on the length of your RV's electrical cord, you may want to bring a heavy duty extension cord with you. Electricity on seasonal campsites is metered.

Q: Are we allowed to have visitors come to our campsite?

A: Yes, visitors are welcome provided they follow campground rules. Unlike many campgrounds, we have no daytime visitor fees between the hours of 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. Adult visitors who would like to remain at the campground after 8 p.m. are subject to a $5 visitor fee. The visitor fee for children 6 to 17 is $ 3.00. Children 5 and under are always free. Paying this fee allows the visitor to stay overnight on a registered campers campsite. Visitors may remain after 8 p.m. at no charge provided they are staying to participate in a scheduled campground activity, such as to play bingo or ride on the hayride. When the activity is finished, visitors should depart the campground or pay the visitor fee if they choose to remain at the campground.

Q: Are pets allowed?

A: Yes. Pets must be kept on a leash and never left unattended. Barking or disruptive dogs are very annoying to others and will not be tolerated. Please clean up after your pet.

Q: Do you have cabins to rent?

A: We're sorry, our cabins are not available to rent at this time.

Q: What does it mean when a campground has quiet hours?

A: Campgrounds designate quiet hours so that campers can enjoy a good night's sleep. Show respect for other campers and keep your talking to a whisper during quiet hours. If you're an RV'er,  refrain from running your generator. Try to arrive at the campground early enough to set up camp before it gets dark. Our quiet hours are from 11:00 P.M. through 8:00 A.M.
