These Rules are meant to provide guidance and clarification regarding the occupancy of the Kootenay River RV Park “Park” and to establish the rules of conduct for the good of all persons present on Park private property as well as the foundation and fundamental aspects of the license of occupation.

Please note that the sites are only to be occupied, and their use is VERY restricted by the following rules. RESIDENTIAL TENANCIES DO NOT APPLY IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM. ANY USE OR RENTAL OF A SITE IS STRICTLY BY WAY OF A LICENSE TO OCCUPY ONLY. Under the license to occupy, the registered guest(s) is given permission to use and occupy the site, however that permission may be revoked at any time. Under such agreement and to be fair, the guest(s) occupying the site are also under no obligation to give the Park owner/operator any notice to vacate and may do so at any time they choose to do so.    

The Term “Guest” as used in the rules which forms the license of occupation applies to the party signing a receipt of fees paid or rule acknowledgement and on behalf of and with all responsibility for all other registered persons that may be permitted to occupy the RV site.
