1. Play nice with others. You might make some new friends. The lodge, deck, kitchen, grilling area, grounds, boats, and lake are common spaces shared by all the guests at Camp Woodbury. Don’t be a hog. And introduce yourself.
  2. Quiet. Quiet. People come here for the peace and quiet. The birds don’t need loudspeakers. You don’t either. They sing. You can, too. Quietly. Really, really quietly after 10:00pm. It’s the law in Lima Township.
  3. No fireworks. Ever. It’s the law in Lima Township.
  4. If you use it, clean it. Dishware, pots and pans, utensils, glassware, mugs, etc. But we’ll do the laundry.
  5. If you move it, move it back. Boats, life jackets, fishing gear, furniture, dishes, pots and pans, coffee mugs, pillows. Basically everything… put it back where you got it.
  6. Get rid of your trash. There are two big dumpsters. Hard not to see. The one on the left is for trash and garbage and the one on the right is for all recycling stuff (even though it’s labelled Cardboard Only). They get picked up on Monday so don’t park in front of them.
  7. We compost as much as we can. Ask us how and what and where.
  8. Don’t smoke in the buildings. Butt buckets are located around the decks and porches of the lodge.
  9. Stick to the 15mph speed limit. It takes exactly 1 minute longer to get back to the camp at 15 mph than it does at 30 mph. We share this land with turkeys and deer and coons and coyotes and woodchucks and rabbits and squirrels and chipmunks. They tolerate us so be nice to them. (Plus, we hate fixing potholes.)
  10. Park only in designated areas and don’t even think about parking on the grass.
  11. Brief stops in the circle drive for loading and unloading are OK. You saw the word brief, right? It’s a Fire Lane, keep it clear.
