Campanyon is all about nature and companionship. To help you be responsible towards both the environment and your guests, here are 8 pointers to help you make your property safe for both campers and the environment.
- Answer calls of nature
We strongly recommend having toilet facilities available to campers. This ensures the disposal of human waste is done in a way that’s legal and environmentally friendly.
- Garbage and recycling
Waste policies differ from one place to another. Make your guidelines very clear to your guests when it comes to where they should dispose of their garbage, recycling, or compost. A good reminder and rule of thumb is for your guests to leave your space as clean as they found it, and to not leave anything behind.
- Communicate Emergency Procedures
Provide up-to-date emergency numbers for police, fire safety, and the nearest hospital before arrival. And post them somewhere on the campsite too.
- Provide A Local Point of Contact
You or an emergency contact must be available by phone or email 24/7 during each reservation, within a one-hour drive of the property, and able to respond within one hour to complaints.
- Educate About Fire Prevention
Provide information about fire safety to campers, such as whether or not campfires are allowed, how to responsibly prepare a campfire pit, and how to properly extinguish a campfire.
- Educate About Natural Dangers
Provide information about common dangers in your area that campers should beware of, such as ticks, mountain lions, bears, poison oak, weather, earthquakes, etc.
- Limit Occupancy
Make sure buildings and tents are not overcrowded. Building occupancy limits are typically two per bedroom plus a few children under 12, but you should check out your town or county occupancy limits for short-term rentals, or in building codes or zoning codes. Campers in tents or other temporary structures should abide by the manufacturer’s recommendation occupancy limits for their product.
- Minimize hazards
Make sure any structures on your land are up to code and safely constructed, and that any hazards on your land or in structures are removed or clearly marked.
