  • Winterize water line from base of hydrant to camper connection.
  • Build around the hydrant for best protection. PVC pipe can be used (visit pads 1, 8 or 18 for an example of how to do this).
  • Winterize the sewer connections and valves.
  • Keep electrical pedestal closed.
  • Clear snow from pad, sewer connections, water hydrants and electrical pedestals to allow for access.
  • Snow removal of your pad is your responsibility. Shoveling pads is not provided by River Dance.
  • River Dance is on a private sewer system, meaning we treat all waste in the sewer lines. Antifreeze and similar chemical agents have the potential to seriously damage and/or destroy our Wastewater Treatment System. These products are HIGHLY discouraged and should be avoided. Most effective prevention is to use skirting, ground heaters, and proper placement of heat tape to protect your camper and River Dance utilities from winter conditions.
  • Any damage caused by not having the necessary winterization in place will be repaired at Campers expense (and this can get very expensive, so please winterize properly, per the rules outlined here-in).

Here are a few tips and trick to help you meet the winterization requirements at River Dance:

  • Skirting is HIGHLY recommended. There are several different routes you may consider:
    • Manufacturers vinyl skirting
    • Wood products
    • Pre-primed wood panels
    • Custom made vinyl, neutral colors
  • Even though your camper/RV might be rated “4-Seasons”, that rating is not meant to withstand freezing temperatures. Prepare accordingly.
  • If your rig is not equipped with heated tanks, a milk-house heater placed under your tanks will help keep tanks warm and dump lines from freezing. Any damage caused by freezing will be at your expense.
  • If your rig has a heated underbelly, be sure to run your furnace as your primary heat source so that the belly stays warm. (Relying on electric heaters can cause the underbelly to get cold and freeze water lines).
  • Water hoses must be winterized (either heated lines or approved/standard modifications – like adding heat tape – to keep the lines from freezing).
  • Small ceramic heaters, with tip safety features, can be used in your compartment to help keep water lines from freezing.
  • Be sure that water filters or metal fittings are not exposed.
  • Vehicle(s) must fit in your pad and may NOT spill over into the road to ensure snowplows can get through. Any damage resulting from vehicles parked outside of your pad will result in fines.

Tent Campers

Tent Sites must adhere to all River Dance Rules and Regulations. In addition, there are some additional rules apply specifically to tent sites:

  • Camping at River Dance is only permitted in designated tent sites (which must be reserved and paid for prior to entry).
  • Practice Leave No Trace camping.
  • No food or trash unattended or left out overnight at any time.
  • Place tents in designated gravel areas, only.
