Group Information and Policy
The following is a summary of Camp procedures and information. To help make your visit the best that it can possibly be, please take the time to read the Guest Information Manual provided in each lodging facility.
Registration: Overnight guests must register at the Camp Office upon arrival. Payment is expected at this time.
Accommodations will be clean and sanitized. Towels will be provided and beds made prior to arrival. Wood and ice are also delivered prior to arrival.
Alcohol: Alcohol is normally not allowed in Camp dining rooms or other common areas. We allow the responsible use of alcohol during early and late season group functions such as wedding receptions. Group function participants are expected to show consideration for fellow guests. RDC does not provide alcoholic beverages. The legal drinking age in New Hampshire is 21.
Boating: Guests may not harbor or dock a boat that has a motor above 25 horsepower at RDC. This rule has been established to contribute to the serenity and conservation of the lake and shoreline. We appreciate your cooperation regarding this matter, and thank you for your assistance in our stewardship of Squam Lake.
Flashlights are necessary to find your way around Camp after dark; therefore, be sure to carry a flashlight at night.
Gratuities: Guests may wish to reward employees for exceptional service; however, employees are paid with the understanding that gratuities are not required.
High heeled footwear does considerable damage to Camp's softwood floors and is dangerous for walking on RDC's rugged terrain. Therefore, we do not allow high heeled footwear in our facilities and strongly encourage the use of flat footwear on our property.
Bagged Ice: Every cottage has an ice box containing ice harvested from the lake to be used only for refrigeration purposes. Guests should use processed ice cubes for consumption. Bagged ice is located outside the dining room in each Camp.
Pets cannot be accommodated, except during "Dog Days," Saturday, September 9 to Saturday, September 16. Kennels are available in the surrounding area:
Quiet Hours: Be considerate of fellow guests by observing our quiet hours from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m.
Smoking: SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED IN ANY RDC BUILDING. Smoking is also prohibited in all common-use outdoor areas where children may congregate; such as the ball field, dining halls and main docks. It is the responsibility of all smokers to assure that their activity does not interfere with the rights of others to enjoy a clean, safe and smoke-free environment. All RDC employees adhere to a strict No Smoking policy on camp grounds.
Fireplaces: Please be extremely cautious when using cottage fireplaces. Do not leave a fire unattended. In an emergency, contact a staff person and/or one of the Camp Offices immediately.
Telephones/Internet Access: Public telephones are located near each office in small buildings named "Ma Bell" (map's 40 and 93A). Wireless internet access is available at most of our guest accommodations. If your particular accommodation does not have access, the Ma Bell facilities and both Rockywold and Deephaven Offices can be used for wireless access.
Vehicles: We urge guests to park vehicles at the designated parking area nearest their lodging facility. Car use is generally unnecessary at Camp, since most activities are within comfortable walking distance for able-bodied individuals. Those who must drive are asked to do so with caution.
Once again our family has congregated at Rockywold. Over the 32+ years we have been coming here our family has returned for the wonderful camaraderie, peacefulness and rejuvenation of our hearts and souls in a time where so many families are torn apart, and at odds, we feel so fortunate to have this beautiful, safe haven to share in some of the most special and joyful occasions in life.
