VISITOR POLICY -  No Visitors  Allowed

We may make exceptions on an individual basis.  Check with the Office.

Because we have so many fun things to do and because we are so near the Dreams Park, we ended up a big "party" place.  It was not fun... so we no longer allow visitors.

We are very strict about our visitor policy.  Only registered overnight guests are allowed on the grounds. We will make exceptions on an individual basis (for example grandparents staying someplace else); please check with the office.

Unauthorized Visitors are never allowed. There will be a $20 per person fee for any Unauthorized Visitors or you will forfeit your Security Deposit, whichever is greater. You will be responsible for this fee and it will be added to your bill.  Please do not ignore this policy.

 

DREAMS PARK FAMILIES. 

Your child and/or spouse who are staying at the Dreams Park are considered part of your family and are not treated as visitors. They may come and go as you please. Your child and/or spouse may enjoy the full use of Beaver Valley facilities including pools, playground, pond, etc.  If there will be an additional vehicle, be sure to stop by the office upon arrival to get a car pass.

We never allow team parties.   If there are team members who are not staying with us, you may not bring them to Beaver Valley.  Glimmerglass State Park has facilities for team parties: swimming, covered pavilion, grills, etc.   Barnyard Swing Mini-golf has free facilities for team parties.

There will be a $20 per person fee for any Unauthorized Visitors or you will forfeit your Security Deposit, whichever is greater. You will be responsible for this fee and it will be added to your bill.

QUIET HOUR  -  10 PM - 8 AM   

We strictly enforce Quiet Hours.  If you really don't think you can abide by our Quiet Hours, please consider staying elsewhere. Seriously!  Beaver Valley may not be the best place for your stay!

After 10 PM:  Shhhh... Radios must be turned off completely. No outside TVs. No loud cackling. Please use your library voice. All children must be with you at your site. Playground is closed. All Authorized Visitors who received permission from the office to be on site must leave.

We have someone patrol the grounds to be sure it is quiet at 10 PM. If you are noisy, we will speak to you once to remind you of quiet time. We will speak to you a second time because we are really nice people. But if we have to speak to you a third time, you will have to go to bed or leave the property with no refund. Please do not ignore this policy.

We truly want you to have a wonderful time here, but we want all of our guests to have a wonderful time!
