Music and Noise

  • For the consideration of all our guests, music is to be kept at a reasonable decibel level.  Repeated complaints about loud music may result in ejection from the campground.

Personal Conduct

          We are all adults and are expected to behave as such.

          Unwanted sexual advances or inappropriate touching will not be tolerated and will result in immediate removal from the property,           

          No means No!         

          Seasonals are responsible for the behavior of all of their guests and need to be sure they understand camp policy and follow rules.

Club “O”

  • Oneida provides our guests with free draft beer at Club “O”.  Please bring your own plastic cup or mug.
  • For everyone’s safety, glass mugs, cups, or wine glasses are not permitted inside or around Club “O” or inside the pool fence.
  • While the Club is clothing optional, sexual activity is not permitted inside or in the areas in front or directly behind Club “O”.
  • In accordance with State Health and Safety Regulations, pets are not permitted inside Club “O” at any time.


  • In order to keep the camp clean and respect the environment, please use trash receptacles that are located throughout the camp.  Litter, including cigarette butts, may harm animals and the camp environment.  Please be mindful of your impact.
  • Please make sure you get your trash to one of the trash cans located throughout the campground no later than 4 pm on Sunday.  If you miss the deadline you will be required to bring your trash to the dumpsters at the exit to the camp.  Seasonal campers are responsible for bringing their own trash to the dumpsters.

Fire Prevention

  • Do not leave fires unattended or candles burning when you are not at your site.
