  • Be sure to bring your own wash cloths, bath & beach towels.  We do provide a good supply of kitchen linens


  • Please park all trucks, RV’s on the left up to the bushes & close together-7 spaces.  Park all mini-vans & smaller on the right up to & on the grass & close together-5 spaces. Do not block the garage doors-leave a wide turn around space. Extra parking for trailers & cars are available across the stream-not boats.


  • Please put kitchen items where they belong along with all other items.
  • Extra paper towels should be in the cabinet above the fridge; extra toilet paper is located underneath the sink in each bathroom.


  • Use precaution when using the fire ring.  Keep a bucket of water nearby to put out the fire.
  • Please do not trespass onto our neighbors’ property.  Stay within the fenced just around near the Lodge.
  • We have to keep watering the lawns during your stay in order to keep the lawns looking this green.   We try to water areas that you use after dark and areas that you normally don’t use during the day.
  • A stream runs diagonal across the property from Fish Haven Creek.  This runs all year so you will need to watch the children that they don’t fall in.  It varies in width: 4-10 feet & about 1 foot deep at times.
  • We have locked the gates in the backyard play area so the little children are locked in the backyard.
  • Snowmobiles and ATV’s may drive alongside Hwy 89 to get into the back country in Idaho, not in Utah.  You can access the canyons by going north and turning left just past St Charles Post Office.  That will take you into Green Canyon or by going up Fish Haven Canyon Road which accesses all the backcountry trails.


  • We have put pillow-top mattresses throughout the lodge. Please take special precaution if your young children are sleeping on them that the mattresses do not get soiled or wet.
  • All the beds have clean sheets, remaining bedding for the futons are available upon request.  The downstairs futon linens are located in the armoire.  The upstairs bedrooms with futons have bedding in the closets.
  • Please do not sit on the comforters as they cost $100-250 ea and we want to keep them in good shape.  Just lift up the edge of the comforter to sit on the beds.  The comforters are not washable and are dry clean only. Please read instructions for futon use.
