*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.

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.
