<%@LANGUAGE="JAVASCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%> NLQP Rules

We are easy-going folks!

Our rules are simple requests formed from years of experience, & are crucial to maintaining a safe & peaceful environment. We therefore ask for your help & understanding in enforcing them to make the park a safer place. 

Anyone in violation of these rules will be asked to leave the park without a refund. If you feel you cannot abide by the rules of the park, please don't come.

If you observe any such problems, please feel free to alert our staff immediately or come to the front gate.

Please be kind & respectful to everyone & everything. 

Our goal is to make everyone's stay at the park as safe & enjoyable as humanly possible.


 

PARK RULES

  1. NO SWIMMING WHEN LIFEGUARD IS OFF-DUTY. Swim hours are from 10 AM to 7 PM during the regular season. Anyone caught in the water off-hours 
    will be immediately expelled from the park.

    .
  2. NO GLASS BOTTLES OR CONTAINERS. Please bring cans. Any glass bottles or other glass containers will be confiscated.
    .
  3. NO CRUISING: Driving is restricted to entering the park, leaving the park, & to 5 MPH.
    .
  4. NO FIREARMS OR FIREWORKS ARE ALLOWED IN THE PARK. Both firearms & fireworks will be confiscated.

    -
  9. NO DOGS or PETS. Trained service animals will be accepted for qualified individuals with a disability covered by the “Americans with Disabilities Act 1990”. All service dogs must be registered and have tags. Due to the fact, easy access to paperwork that fraudulently certifies dogs as a service animal, extra scrutiny will be taken. For our patrons in a bind, there are many cheap but good kennels in the area.
    .
  10. NO AXES OR SAWS ARE PERMITTED. Although you are allowed to bring your own firewood, we do sell firewood at the park for $15 per wheelbarrow load.
    .
  11. NO DAMAGING TREES OR OTHER WILDLIFE. ($150.00 fine) Anyone damaging or injuring animals, trees, or other wildlife while in the park will be fined, expelled, & face possible prosecution. Please be respectful of all wildlife.
    .
  12. NO LOUD MUSIC PAST 11 PM. Please be aware of your noise level. Many sites are very close to one another, & not everyone enjoys the same music. There is also a noise ordinance in Portage County that limits everyone to 11 PM when it comes to noise of any kind.
    .
  13. NO MORE THAN 3 TENTS PER SITE. Tents must be at least 5 feet apart & 10 feet from the fire pit. This is a state law & will be checked in all campsites.
    .
  14. NO CHILDREN ARE TO BE UNATTENDED. Because parents and legal guardians are ultimately responsible for the actions of their children, please do not let your child wander around the park alone. You must be 18 years of age or older to camp at Nelson Ledges unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian* (this does not include day swimming).

    *LEGAL GARDIAN - If not accompanied by a parent, the legal guardian must present, one, his or her state-issued custody papers and, two, his or her own state-issued photo ID upon arrival.

    .
  15. NO ALCOHOL, PROFANITY, THONGS OR CIGARETTE BUTTS ON THE BEACH. The beach and playground are the children's areas & are to be treated accordingly.
    .
  16. NO RE-ENTRY FROM 2 AM - 8 AM ON REGULAR CAMPING NIGHTS. Because the gate is closed from 2 AM to 8 AM on regular camping (or non-festival) nights, there is no re-entry permitted during these hours.
    .
  17. NO RE-ENTRY DURING LARGE FESTIVALS. Because the park is at maximum capacity during our biggest festivals, if you don't sign out there is no re-entry until Sunday morning. If you have an emergency, need to work, stay at a hotel, or the like, you must always sign out at the gate in order to get back in.
