Fees are all-inclusive with the exception of power generation. Use of the on-site generator for more than 2 hours a day will be charged at a rate of $10 per hour.
The use of firewood use each day is $20. Please be frugal with the firewood as it is collected by a limited team and takes great effort.
All cleaning is the responsibility of the user groups. Any cleaning tasks left unfinished will result in a cleaning fee being added to the final invoice.

Groups will be charged $20 dollars per hour for cleaning if facilities are left in an unsatisfactory condition. This includes the outdoor common areas.
