New RV Park rates and rules established at 1,000 Acre Lake

New rates and rules for the RV Park at the 1,000 Acre Recreational Lake were adopted by the Carroll County Watershed Authority Board in the Feb. 22 meeting. In addition three boat dock requests were approved.

The new raised rates went into affect on Tuesday after the adoption.

No longer will any of the 12 parking sites be rented on an annual basis, only for daily, weekly or monthly rates.

Board member Joe Smothers pointed out that 80 percent of the income was not from daily rentals.

“You want it to pay for itself,” he said.

Kim Carter, secretary to the board, said, however, there were people who want to stay on a daily basis.

“We need to decide what we want to encourage and discourage,” said board member Brad Chappell.

Carter said there has  been a couple of people that park their RV’s there year round.

A motion passed unanimously that says no more annual parking rentals will be available.

In a second motion, the revised rates were adopted. No decision was made on keeping or revising the camping season that is presently designated as March 1 – Oct. 30. More information will be gathered before a decision is made.

The revised rates are: The daily rate is $45 with the senior rate at $40, up from $35 and $30. The weekly rate is $225 with the senior rate at $200, up from $175 and $150. The monthly rate is $450 with the senior rate at $400, up from $350 and $300.

The adopted rules are as follows: Minimum of two nights stay on weekends and three nights on holidays, quiet hours (11 p.m. – 6 a.m.), Speed limit in in park area will be 15 MPH, Patrons assume all liability when using facilities, No alcoholic beverages allowed, Check-out is 3 p.m., check-in time is 4 p.m., Pets must be on a leash of 6 feet or less and under physical control at all times while in the campground., You are required to clean up after your pet for health and sanitation purposes, Pets must not be left unattended, and pets are not permitted on the beach, in designated swimming areas, bathrooms, and shower buildings., Campsite capacity shall be limited to a maximum of 8 people per site and two vehicles.
