Camping Season

The camping season at Buffalo Pound Lake is one of the longest ones in Saskatchewan, running from April 1st to Oct 15th – whereby you are able and permitted by RM zoning bylaws to sleep overnight in your RV. In the offseason, you can come out and check on your RV units, have a fire, enjoy some winter activities, but sleeping overnight is not allowed. We will do our best to keep the roads open so you can access your unit all year around, but please be flexible after large snowfalls to provide our team the required time to remove the snow, our priority in the winter must be providing access for the 4-season cabin owners.

Your Campsite

You are responsible for the general housekeeping of your site. It is expected that you maintain your grass area’s on your site.

As a leasee, feel free to make any improvements that do not affect the integrity of the site. It is your property for the duration of your lease and we want you to get the maximum enjoyment possible. Picnic tables, solar lights, BBQ’s, decks, 8×12 sheds, gazebo’s, flowers and personal touches have added to the enjoyment of many campers. As an owner, you have full approvals to complete any improvements to your site that you wish – as long as it follows the RM of Dufferin 190 zoning bylaws –  http://rmofdufferin190.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/ZONING-BYLAW-Bylaw.No_.11-2006-Consolidated-2015-Amended-September-2021.pdf

In both instances, you do require consent from the Condo Board on improvements, which will not be unreasonably with-held, as long as they meet the requirements in the bylaws / rules & regulations. Please submit your development plans, for approval, to buffalopound@glampingrvresorts.com.

Parking

The parking of vehicles on roadways impedes the traffic of other campers and increases the chances of damage to your vehicle. Please restrict your parking to your site. Please park extra vehicles out of the way to allow traffic and emergency vehicles access. Your sites are very large, please make appropriate arrangements for boat and other trailer parking on your site. If you require more space, please contact the resort manager to source additional storage space on the top of the valley.

Septic Tips and Hints

Please keep an eye on the level of your underground sewage tank. Accidental overflows are unsanitary and are unpleasant for you and your neighbors. Please follow your manufacture recommendations on black & grey holding tank chemical usage. Also please provide reasonable notice to have your tank emptied to avoid inconvenience. Dumping of wastewater is restricted to your tank or the dump station located at the top of the valley, near the gate entrance. Please refrain from permanently attaching (gluing) adapters to underground holding tanks. To avoid plug ups, make sure your black tank is full before releasing it into your underground tank. Do not leave your valve open on your RV as the continuous flow will plug up the unit. We also recommend using RV toilet paper only, it breaks down and does not plug up your RV tank.

Garbage

There are Lorras bins located in 3 locations throughout the resort:
– 1 lakefront near the pool/beach area
– 1 in Phase #2 above the office
– 1 in Phase #3 in the triangle near Lot 112 junction
You are responsible to deliver your garbage from your site to the Lorras bins. Please dispose of garbage and ensure the lid is closed. If the bins are over full, or something is wrong – PLEASE TEXT THE BUFFALO POUND LAKE MANAGER PHONE AND NOTIFY THEM.

Resort Amenities

Washroom Buildings
There are washroom buildings located in PH #2, which will be open all summer. We are working on a different solution for locking, so that our site owners can use the washroom building 4-seasons without a chance of vandalization. In the winter 2021, our washroom building (which was open) was vandalized by non-residences. In addition, more washrooms will be built in Phase #3 as soon as we can.

Playground
1 playground located in Phase #2 with a second planned playground coming to Phase #3. When using the playground, adult supervision must be provided at all times. You are responsible for your children and the use of these facilities. We also offer an open grass park area for your enjoyment. In addition there are horseshoe pits, boccie ball pits and other facilities for you to enjoy, at your own risk and discretion.

Disc Golf
Currently located in Phase #3 around the bushed behind the future washroom building.

Beach
Beautiful beach located lakefront, with parking above the lakefront road for access. No motorized vehicles allowed down the beach walking path. If you wish to store kayaks, canoes or otherwise at the beach – there is a public kayak / canoe / paddle board stand available and you can secure the items with your own chains / locks. Free of use, please help yourself.

Boat Launch
Our boat launch is a public use launch situated past the domes on the lakefront in Phase #1. There is no fee to utilize the boat launch and parking is located above it. New signs will be installed to further clarify the directional parking that was planned.

Marina
We have marina slips available for sale at $4,500 + taxes (one-time cost), subject to change based on supplier costs. We have zero profit margin in these slips and simply pass the cost onto the purchaser from our supplier, TR Aluminum in Lumsden. You own your slip and pay an annual fee to install and remove the slips, shared amongst the entire marina owners. For instance, if it costs us $250 to install the marina (employees time, mini-hoe, etc) and there are 6 slips, then that $250 equally shared amongst the owners of the 6 slips.
If you would like a marina slip, please contact the resort manager at buffalopound@glampingrvresorts.com

Pool
Located above the beach / Lot #44, on the flat area. This will be a 20 ft x 40 ft pool that is 4 feet deep complete with a 3 season washroom building and all requirements by the Swimming Pools Regulations of 1999. More information coming on the pool when we receive it.

Nature Areas
Our location offers an abundance of common nature areas to be enjoyed by all. The cutting or disturbance of trees is NOT PERMITTED. Feel free to pick up deadfall or kindling from these areas. You may encounter some wildlife, please do not feed the wildlife. They may become dependent on you for food, and when winter comes, it may put them at risk.

General Items

Quiet Time
Quiet time is from 11pm to 8am, absolutely zero loud motorized vehicles allowed during this time period.

Firewood
We have firewood available for sale at the resort. To guarantee delivery by Friday, we ask that your request is submitted by Wednesday. Firewood is $180 per 1/3rd cord bag & a $20 bag deposit.

Firepits
We have steel Glamping RV Resort firepits available for sale, please submit an inquiry if you are interested.

Fireworks
Every year, we have the pleasure of experiencing some fantastic firework displays for Canada Day Weekend celebrations. Moving forward, the fireworks show will go directly off the beach and be directed over the water, to ensure no issues. If there is a fireban on, the fireworks show will NOT PROCEED.
Please seek approval from the resort manager prior to setting off any fireworks.

Pets
Our pets are an important part of our family and can enhance our camping experience. Please respect your neighbors by picking up after your pets (doggy doo). YOU are responsible to ensure that your pet does not negatively affect your neighbors by excessive barking, roaming free or jumping. Leaving pets unattended for extended periods of time is highly discouraged! We are obligated to follow upon complaints from fellow campers and may result in restrictions being imposed. Our goal is to provide a pleasurable experience for all our campers and guests. PLEASE REMEMBER – Not all people are pet people, please respect your neighbors.

Campfires
Campfires are an essential part of everyone’s camping experience; however, they pose a risk to everyone’s safety and property when not treated with total respect. Please DO NOT have a campfire in windy conditions. Under no circumstances should a campfire be left unattended! Campfires are restricted to fire pits that will not pose a risk of getting out of control. Please keep your campfire to a reasonable size. In the event of fire bans imposed by RM of Dufferin 190, notices will be posted on our Facebook page and enforced. You are allowed to use portable propane firepits when this occurs, let’s all hope for no fire bans.
REMEMBER – If a fire gets out of control and the fire department needs to be called, that cost goes directly onto the family who’s fire caused the event. Be careful, have fun, and enjoy your campfires.

Smoking
Please discard all smoking materials in proper containers or in your campfire. Improper disposal is unsightly and increases the risk of fires in the park. Improper disposal of smoking material in our nature areas and out the vehicles is prohibited. PLEASE SMOKE WITH CARE.
You are required to clean up after you are done.

Picnic Tables
We have picnic tables at the resort available for sale, but they are limited in supply. With the increased cost of lumber, we have allowed guests to also provide their own preferred picnic table. If you wish to order a picnic table, please submit a request through our website and we will send you a quote and timelines for delivery. Cost is subject to change, in 2021 they were $200/table with no stain.

Visitor & Guests
Please invite your friends, family and guests out to the resort to have a great time!

Crime Prevention & Security
Fortunately, we have experienced very few incidents at the resort. We offer a few simple tips that will help deter this sort of behavior.

RV Insurance
As per the lease agreement and condo association bylaws, you are responsible for ensuring that your RV has the proper insurance for any incidents that occur on the resort.

Golf Carts
Golf carts are permitted throughout the resort and on all valley side paths. Please use caution when operating, there are some tight, blind corners that you need to be careful on. For that reason, on the valley side paths, no-one under the age of 16 is permitted to operate without an adult in the golf cart.

ATV’s, Side by Sides & Off-Road Vehicles
Off road vehicles are only allowed on the main grid roads, ZERO VALLEY SIDE PATH’S ARE PERMITTED AND NO OFFROADING IS PERMITTED. We have had consistent mis-use of this rule in the past, and management plans to crack down on this significantly this season. Fines will be levied and this could result in eviction.

RV Maintenance & Repairs
Follow your manufacturers recommendations when winterizing your RV. For professional services, we recommend Morrow’s Marine and More in Lumsden.
