My example is claiming to be a "campground," based on historic use. More of a summer camp facility, actually, with a lodge building and smaller cabins. There are no RV or tenting sites, no sanitary facilities (porta-pots are brought in for events), inadequate roadways within the site, substandard access roads nearby.
Previous party renters have provided helpful blog posts. "Then when the ceremony is over 250 of your closest friends show up for a day of volleyball, fishing, canoeing, camping, swimming, bonfires, giant size Jenga, games…the list goes on and on." Wait, what? The applicant states that parties will be limited to 150 attendees. "We almost set a tree on fire" with the paper lantern launch. Owner lives elsewhere, and it seems that the caretaker hands over the facility to the renters and then leaves; swinging-by-their-tails commences. Gosh, we didn't know that our renters would ignore the noise curfew, set off fireworks, send small bonfires skyward during a dry summer season.
I'm looking up ADT on the nearby dirt roads which provide access. Several renters have provided directional maps on their wedding blog sites; good to know that several hundred partiers will be driving past your house that evening.
Adding this for ease in finding it later.
