Welcome to West Forty! We want you to have a great time us and come back frequently. We believe in mutual respect between and with all of our guests, regardless of where you come from or what your life experiences are. We think of our campground as our own backyard with a bunch of friends and family wanting a space to enjoy all the wonderful things the Iron Range has to offer. To help maintain that respect for all on our property, we have developed basic rules over the many years of operating our campground. Some of the rules are common sense. Some are listed because we've had issues in the past and we've learned from those experiences.
Please note that any fees or fines listed in our rules are either: 1) to recover our costs of replacement or repair 2) serve as a deterant for activities that do not want to occur on our property. None of our rule or policy related fees or fines are meant to increase campground revenue.
We try to update our rules only in the camping off-season when we are closed, but occasionally it is neccessary for use to edit our rules during the season. When mid-season changes are made, we will publish them in our email newsletter.
Please let us know if you have questions about any of our rules/policies. We hope you enjoy your stay!
