Rules & Policies

General Rules/Policies

Mi-Te-Jo is a family campground. These rules are written so that everyone will have an enjoyable and safe stay.

1. SPEED LIMIT throughout the campground is 5 M.P.H. We realize that this is ridiculously slow. If you do not feel that you are driving ridiculously slow, then you are driving too fast. Motorcycles and cars should be driven to and from campsites only. Please remember that you share the road with bicyclists and pedestrians.

2. THE CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL shall be done in a responsible manner. Drunkenness, use of illegal drugs, and disorderly conduct will not be tolerated.

3. QUIET HOURS are from 11 PM until 8 AM. Please have consideration for camping neighbors always. Remember TV and radio sound travels. Many families prefer a more natural setting. If you must have your TV outside, please place it as discreetly as possible, so those who are not interested in your TV may enjoy their time as well.

4. CHILDREN are the parents’ responsibility. Please accompany small children to restrooms. Children must be accompanied by an adult when swimming. All children must be at their campsites fifteen minutes after the rec hall closes. REC HALL HOURS Sunday- Thursday 10AM to 10PM Friday & Saturday 10AM to 10 PM

5. ALL PETS should be campground friendly and understand the pet rules. Pets must be on a leashed or tied at all times. Pet rules are listed in detail on the web site and bulletin board. Pets must be on a leash 6 ft. or shorter when being walked. For health and safety reasons, dogs are not allowed on the beaches, playgrounds, ball fields or in campground buildings. Barking dogs are extremely annoying. Please be sure that your dog does not disturb other campers. Please do not leave your dog unattended outside your camper. Be sure to bring a current copy of your pet’s vaccinations. Any dogs showing aggressive behavior will be asked to leave and you will not be given a refund.

6. TREES are a natural beauty. Please do not harm the trees and vegetation that live at the campground. Firewood is available at the office.

7. SWIMMING is at the campers own risk. NO LIFE GUARD IS ON DUTY. The use of the swimming areas after dusk is not allowed. Glass on the beach is prohibited. Absolutely no swimming in the channel! Oversized floatation devices are not permitted at Mi-Te-Jo.

8. FIRES should be kept small and under control at all times. Only wood purchased at Mi-Te-Jo is permitted at Mi-Te-Jo. Please do not burn trash. Fires MUST NOT be left unattended and MUST be extinguished with water when you retire for the evening or leave your site.

9. VISITORS must register at the office. (STATE LAW) All rules apply to guests. Camper’s guests are their responsibility.

10. SPORTS FIELDS are provided for your use. No alcohol is permitted on any sports field. Please restrict sporting activities to fields. Horseshoe playing is allowed only in the horseshoe pits. Scheduled activities have priority in the field and horseshoe pits. Sports equipment is available in the office. Playgrounds close at dark.

11. FIREWORKS are illegal and not allowed.

12. DOCKS are provided on a limited basis. Only people with a rented slip are allowed on boat docks. No swimming, diving, or fishing from the docks.

13. BICYCLES AND SCOOTERS must not be ridden after dusk and should be ridden under control at all times. Electric scooters of any kind are prohibited. Being a family campground, there is a lot of bicycle traffic. VEHICLES AND BICYCLES ALIKE SHOULD USE CAUTION AND YIELD TO PEDESTRIANS.

14. ALL BOATS must be registered with MTJ and have an identification tag, which is obtained at the office. All boat owners must be aware of the boating regulations at Mi-Te-Jo Campground. Yearly boat fees for motorized boats $10 and for non motorized $5. This is a once a year fee which includes all your boats. Please be aware of evasive plant species in the lake. Remove weeds from boats on a regular basis so that they do not reseed at your docking space or in other lakes if you travel. It is mandatory to rinse your boat and trailer thoroughly, using the boat rinse station, before entering and leaving the campground

15. For the protection of our septic systems, and the environment, please use environmentally friendly, (bacteria or enzymes based) holding tank products. The use of tank cleaning wands or RV hydroflush attachments is illegal as they are apt to cause cross contamination.

16. Don’t bring any type of firewood! Please help stop invasive pests! The NH Forest Protection Bureau has asked NH campgrounds to request that their visitors not bring firewood with them due to the possibility of transporting invasive wood boring insects into or within the State. These insects are becoming a serious threat to the NH forests.
