Rules

RuleStampAll visitors must have a valid ID and be at least
18 years old or accompanied by a Parent*.
*Parent/Guardian or Person Having Custodial Care of Minor.

CASH ONLY

No glass, no radios, and no pets.

Safety:

  • No Diving; No Disorderly Conduct; No Firearms, Fireworks, Bicycles or ATV’s.
  • Please do not drive unnecessarily in Paradise Canyon. Enjoy walking to the rest rooms or to go fishing—we all need the exercise.
  • No trespassing across the river. Stay off the dam and 300 feet away from it at all times.
  • Don’t move tables or rocks.
  • Fires in fire pits only.

Clean Up:
Everyone is responsible for cleaning up after themselves and taking their own trash to the dumpster. If you read this part, we may let you have a free something or ‘nother.

Vehicle Rules:
The speed limit is 5 mph. No radios on at any time, even in your vehicles. Park only within the boundaries of the parking area defined by rocks (don’t move the rocks to park where you want!). NO TRAILERS, and if you bring one by mistake (you forgot it’s back there), we’ll charge you an extra carload fee — we are very limited on parking space… that’s why we charge by the carload.

Camping Rules:

  • Campers are allowed to bring their own firewood. OAK firewood is not allowed. Do not cut or deface any trees and/or branches on the property.
  • 2 vehicles allowed per campsite
  • 2 tents allowed per campsite
  • At least get your toes wet in the river. Violators will be asked to go to a place where the water is chlorinated.
  • 11 p.m. is “Lights Out/Quiet Hours”: No loud talking, bright lights, or driving. The emergency phone is on the registration counter.
  • No alcohol consumption after 11 p.m. This is a family-oriented campground, not a bar! Get some rest!
  • No generators allowed! They are way too noisy and can be heard by the catfish in the bottom of the river one mile downstream.
  • If you’ve read down to here, you may get a free pickle!

When violating any of the rules shown above, we will smile and ask you not to do that again.  If seen violating another rule, we’ll say, “We don’t have to have the gates open, but we enjoy sharing it with folks, so obey the rules please or please leave.” Finally, if seen violating another rule, we’ll call the Medina County Sheriff deputy that lives around the corner, and then we’ll shake our heads and wonder why folks come to Paradise Canyon to not have a safe, good time and not cause anybody any trouble. Then again, maybe we’ll call the deputy first thing. But enough with all of that; remember the comment about free pickles? I’d much rather be smiling handing you a free pickle. Rates and availability subject to change.
