Recreational Vehicle Requirements
Make sure your RUV is allowed at Splashway Campground. PLEASE NOTE: Drivers under the age of 18 and without a license are NOT ALLOWED to operate golf carts or recreational vehicles on Splashway property. In order to bring your own RUV/Golf Cart, you MUST review and agree to the NEW TERMS AND CONDITIONS located here.
Recreational vehicles and golf carts that fall under the preferred category are allowed on-premises. For your vehicle to qualify for the preferred category it must be battery-powered or be a gas-powered vehicle that does not generate an unreasonable level of noise. A good rule of thumb: “If you are allowed to use it on a golf course, then you most likely fall under the preferred category.”
Acceptable Vehicles with Restrictions
Recreational vehicles that fall under the acceptable category are allowed on premises with restrictions. Vehicles in this category are generally gas/diesel-powered utility style and not equipped with modified exhaust causing an unreasonable level of noise. Splashway management reserves the right to decide what qualifies as an unreasonable level of noise. We ask that speed limits are always kept under 5 mph and the vehicle is kept in low gear for operating at a safe speed. Vehicles that fall in the acceptable category must be parked at your campsite for the evening by 10:00 pm.
Not Allowed Vehicles
Recreational vehicles in the “not allowed” category are typically lifted with oversized tires. Due to the height of these vehicles, it makes it unsafe to navigate through our campgrounds. These vehicles typically have modified exhaust that makes it hard for families to enjoy our peaceful campground. We ask that you do not bring any vehicles that would fall under the not allowed category. If you do bring a vehicle in this category you will not be allowed to take it off the trailer. A good rule of thumb: If you have a vehicle with after-market modifications and are worried you may fall into the not allowed category, please feel free to call ahead or email pictures. We will be happy to save you the effort of hauling it out.
Light Bars, Excessive Lights, Modified Exhaust, and Sound Systems
Splashway strives to provide a Clean, Safe and Family-Friendly atmosphere. While we do allow our guests to bring their golf carts and some recreational vehicles we do ask that those vehicles do not take away from the family-friendly atmosphere. Music should be kept to a reasonable level. Modified sound systems are not allowed. If your neighbor can hear your music, then chances are it is too loud. We ask that any vehicles with LED lights or light bars, please refrain from using them as it makes it hard for other guests to navigate safely throughout the campgrounds. We also ask that any vehicles with modified exhaust or enhanced engines that create an unreasonable level of noise, please be kept at home.
