Andelyn Farm Policies
Please read before your stay with us
The following policies have been established to ensure that everyone enjoys their stay at Andelyn Farm. We have established policies that benefit the majority, provide consideration for other campers, and safeguard the beauty of the farm. Many of our policies are the direct result of APA (Handicap Compliant) rules and regulations. Some of the policies may be inconvenient at times, but they are necessary if we are to continue to provide the best campground for your enjoyment. Also, we wish to protect the beauty and nature of the farm.
Our season runs from 1 May until 31 December. We will be closed January thru April each year. We will reassess these dates next year.
Cars must be parked in the parking area by the store at all times, except to unload and load at your campsite on arrival and departure dates. The campground is “car free” for everyone’s safety. Motorbikes/ATVs may be parked next to guest campsite or in the designated parking area by store. There is a speed limit of 5 mph. Campsite must be kept orderly, clean and maintained. There is a $20 fee assessed for each day this is not done.
