PARK USE GUIDELINES
Camping: Overnight camping in the park is strictly prohibited, either in tents or RVs. Please do not contact the city or county to obtain special use permits. Park employees will patrol the park at night and anyone found camping or staying in an RV overnight will be asked to leave.
Team Tents: Crews may bring tents to the regatta, and may use stakes that are less than 12” long to anchor tents. Use cement blocks to anchor tents instead. The park specifically prohibits air mattresses or flat-bottom (camping) tents on the lawn, but these may be set up on the beach.
Irrigation: The Park maintains a regular irrigation schedule for all their grassy areas. The sprinklers may be turned on any evening during the regatta. Keep this in mind and put away anything that might be damaged by getting wet.
Pets: NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED IN THE PARK. From April through October, dogs are forbidden in the area of Vancouver Lake
Park where we hold regattas. Regatta participants who violate this rule jeopardize future rowing events at the park. This rule will be strictly enforced. Please do not bring your dog. You will be asked to leave.
