The first and most important rule is courtesy, which characterizes recreation at campgrounds and campgrounds. If you need assistance during your stay at Camp Tumiany, our staff will be happy to provide it to make your vacation enjoyable and memorable. It is important to follow the rules and regulations of the campground, the purpose of which is to ensure a safe and enjoyable vacation. Each campground has its own camping regulations, but there are also common rules that apply during your stay, which we will list below.
Arrival at the campground good advice
If you can, plan your arrival at the campground during the day. This is because most resorts have a specific “curfew” time usually from 10:00-7:00 pm. During this time it is not possible to check in at the campground. Also at night, it is forbidden to mount tents, set up caravans or campers, so as not to disturb neighbors while they sleep and rest.
Arrival at the camping and camping site should be planned during the day
Respect the quiet of the night and plan to arrive at the campground during the day so as not to disturb your neighbors when you arrive. This will make it easier to connect with other guests and make a positive first impression.
In addition, it is much easier to park and operate an RV or caravan during the day, which can be especially useful for first-time visitors.
If you happen to arrive at night, ask the front desk staff or security to show you where you can stay until the morning. The barriers of the Resorts are usually lowered at these times to allow guests to rest peacefully.
Keep the right distance in the setting
Some campgrounds allow guests to choose their own parking space and may not have strictly defined plots. The right to privacy is guaranteed to all campers regardless of the lack of clearly defined restrictions. Therefore, you should keep a distance of about 3 to 4 meters from another camper, caravan or tent, even if there are no clearly defined plot boundaries. Avoid trying to squeeze through every smallest opening.
Regulations of camping not only in Masuria
Novice campers and experienced campers alike have the same desire: a peaceful vacation. It is important to know and follow the rules of the campground to avoid misunderstandings. Follow some basic rules to avoid “gaffes.”
Tips for good leisure:
- Observe curfew. At lunchtime, early morning and late evening, try to keep quiet. At night, turn off all lights, even those outside.
- Try not to make any noise. Remember that campers, caravans and tents do not have the best sound insulation. Loud late-night conversations and lively parties will disturb neighbors.
- Respect parcel boundaries: Avoid crossing your neighbors’ property to shorten your route; a potential confrontation is not worth the few extra steps.
Tips for maintaining cleanliness and hygiene in camping and campgrounds
- Litter: Clean up after yourself and pay attention to the cleanliness of the area around your camp site. Bees, wasps, ants and larger creatures such as raccoons, foxes and even wild boars are attracted to food scraps. They also leave behind an unpleasant odor that permeates the area. So remember to dispose of your trash and place it in properly designated containers both during your stay and on the day you leave. Do not let them remain at your camp site. Taking care to properly dispose of trash in containers will also help the environment while on vacation.
- Toilet and gray water container. You should properly empty the chemical toilet and gray water container to prevent sewage from entering the sewer system or directly into the meadow. Use areas set aside specifically for this purpose and always leave behind order.
- Water hoses. Use appropriate water hoses; clean water hoses and sewage hoses should be stored separately. Of course, they should not be used for other purposes or mixed. Bringing your own hoses and cleaning them yourself is the safest option.
- Dishes. Wash dishes only in specific areas, do not use the same sink for personal hygiene. Many campsites have areas for washing dishes and laundry, as well as bathrooms with specific functions. If in doubt, consult your neighbors, who will certainly be happy to point out the right place.
- Sanitation. Leave the toilet clean and tidy. Whether it’s a shared shower, bathroom or laundry room, try to leave all sanitary facilities clean. Camping will become more hygienic and enjoyable if everyone acts this way. Here’s our little tip: if you’re going to use public showers, don’t forget to bring flip-flops!
- Grilling. Before you do so, check whether firing up the grill is allowed at your campsite. Remember that this can change depending on the weather and how serious the fire danger is. Determine the wind direction before setting up the barbecue and try not to smoke your neighbors.
Harmony at the camping and camping site
Learn some basic rules for getting along with others at a campground if you want your adventurous vacation to be cordial and collegial:
- Friendly greetings from other campers. It is important to greet other tourists politely. Just say “good morning” and nod. Remember that not all your neighbors may be willing to talk. However, it is enough to spend some time in the field to determine who is open to integration.
- Be helpful. Offer your help if you see that one of your guests needs assistance in parking an RV or caravan, as well as setting up a tent. It will be nice if you show the way to get to the beach or restaurants.
- Look for compromises. Even with the best intentions, playing children or a barking dog can quickly cause quite a stir, so you won’t always be able to avoid the noise. Regardless of which side of the argument you are on, try to find compromises, as it is likely that everyone has either caused or been a victim of such a disruption.
- Outing with your pet. When planning a trip with your dog or cat, remember to keep it on a leash or in a pen while at the campground, then it won’t trespass on neighbors’ plots or wander off among guests. If, on the other hand, you’re afraid of four-legged dogs, then avoid the dog parks near the campground.
Campgrounds usually have a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere, so let’s respect our neighbors when we are there. During our stay at the campground, let’s pay special attention to the safety, cleanliness and comfort of our surroundings. Even for novice tourists, many of the rules of the campground are simple and easy to follow. If in doubt, just seek advice from other campers. By following these rules, you can have a pleasant vacation and avoid confrontations with neighbors or campground hosts.
