From the Managers for all RV Annuals…

It is slowly approaching the end of the 2018/2019 winter season.  If you want to reserve your same site for next season, it is time to do so.

The registration office has begun accepting rv annual resident’s deposits for their current site.  Reservations must be for 3 months or more.

Dogs around the buildings are absolutely not allowed!  Residents have been advised to take pictures of those dogs in the complex and submit to management.  It is very disrespectful to residents to find animal waste in and around their site.  Please be responsible for your pets.

Sundance is a SCENT FREE PARK.  Many residents are scent sensitive and the wearing of perfumes, colognes, etc., can irritate and aggravate allergies, asthma and headaches.  Please be thoughtful of others and refrain from wearing fragrances while in the common areas of the resort, dances and events.  Thank you!
