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.

We take cash, cards, and brisket.

No glass, no radios, and no pets.

Safety:

  • No Diving, No Disorderly Conduct, No Firearms, Fireworks, Bicycles or ATVs
  • Please do not drive unnecessarily in Paradise Canyon. Enjoy walking to the restrooms or to go fishing – we all need the exercise.
  • No Trespassing across the river. Stay off the Dam and 300′ away from it at all times.
  • Don’t move tables or rocks
  • Fires in Fire Pits only
  • We are a family-oriented place; use appropriate language, English or Spanish.  French doesn’t count. Buzzards have trash mouths so no fowl language.

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:
Speed Limit – 5 mph. No Radios on! Even in your vehicles – at all times. Park only within the boundaries of the parking area defined by rocks.
And 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, so if you bring a trailer you might as well have taken another parking spot. So, like we said before, we’ll ask you to pay an extra vehicle admission fee.

If you 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. And we’ll tell you “Next time you wont be allowed to come back with glass or a frown.” You’ll look at us real serious and see if we really mean it. Then 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 we’ll call the Medina County Sheriff deputy that lives around the corner and then, we’ll shake our heads and wonder why folks don’t come to Paradise Canyon to have a safe, good time and not cause anybody any trouble. Then again, maybe we’ll call the Sheriff first thing. Meanwhile, I think we were talking about a free pickle. I’d much rather be smiling handing you a free pickle. Rates and availability subject to change.
