Rules for
Summer Family Camp Outs 
at Fort Cross

-Parents, please supervise your children at all times. Although we encourage you to explore and have fun, we ask that everyone please be respectful of our property. Areas that are meant to be closed off or shut, please do not enter or open. 

-Because of our apple orchard, we maintain a closed gate at night to prevent the deer from coming in and eating our crop. If you are planning to stay, please know that we do not allow cars to go in and out beginning at sundown as we do not want to chance the gate being left open or closed incorrectly. However, you are welcome to drop off your gear at your site and park in the parking lot. There are accessible doorways for people that you can walk through to access the parking lot and beyond. 

-"Quieter" Time is from 9:00 pm to 7:30 am; please be respectful of your neighbors, and ours.

-Communal campfire provided, weather permitting. Fire is put out at 10:00 pm.  You are welcome to bring a camp stove.

-There are a lot of cats here! Most are friendly, none of them are aggressive. We are a working farm and our cats help keep the gophers and other pests out of our garden. Please be sure to have your dogs on leashes while they are here, and use caution when preparing and eating your food as most of these cats are not shy about swiping your tasty treats! 

-This one is a bit of a bummer, but due to the fact that we are a family friendly establishment, and have had issues with it in the past, we do not typically allow alcohol on the premises. However, we understand the desire to unwind and have some fun. So if you plan to drink any alcohol, we will allow it only if you do so with discretion at your own campsite. Please do not wander the property with an open container.

-Smoking of any kind is prohibited on the property.

-Fort Cross is located right off of Hwy 78 and there are a few really fun businesses located nearby. There are occasionally nights when live music is played at one of the nearby establishments. Please feel free to reach out to inquire when those dates might be. We will try to keep up with the schedule for that on our website as it is made known to us.

-Sorry for all of the rules. We really do look forward to having you with us and hope we can provide a wonderful stay for you!
