Rules and Regulations

It’s quite simple really.  Be careful.  Be courteous.  Tread lightly.  Clean up after yourself.  And have fun!!!!

But…for a few specifics:

Pets
Pets are welcome at Wild Yough!
  • There is a $25 fee per pet (per stay)
  • There is a limit of 2 dogs per Glamping Hut
  • Sorry, but our insurance will not allow Pit Bulls or other fighting breeds to be on the property.  We understand these breeds are generally good natured and friendly, but we are restricted by our insurance provider.
  • Dogs must be on a leash within sight of any Glamping Hut or the Bathhouse
  • Dogs may NOT be left unattended on the property.  This includes in the huts, bell tent, or automobile.
  • Within sight of any Glamping Hut or the Bathhouse, dog waste must be picked up and properly disposed of  (buried or thrown in trash – not the firepits)
Quiet Time
Quiet time in the Glamping area is from 10:00 PM until 8:00 AM.
Risk
Exploring the more than 350 acres of Wild Yough should be at the top of your Glamping experience.  But please tread lightly and explore at your own risk.  It is a natural environment and Wild Yough is not responsible for accidents or injuries on the property or Glamping site.
Private Property
Please respect our neighbors and do not trespass on private property.  There is permission to cross the Snyder property to reach the Rock Shoals on the river.  Please stay on the trail when crossing this property.  Please review the property map.
Trash
Wild Yough seeks to be an eco-friendly Glampground.  There are trash bins across from the bathhouse.  Please separate your recyclable material and drop them at one of the many free recycling centers in Garrett County.  Your information book has a map to each location.  PLEASE DO NOT BURN TRASH in the firepits.  This will attract animals and leave an unpleasant smell for the next guests.
Bears
Bears are present in the woods surrounding Wild Yough, but have never caused any problems.  Please keep all food securely contained inside of your Glamping Hut or vehicle.  A clean campsite doesn’t attract bears!
Fire pits
Please keep fire pits tidy and always ensure that fires are completely out before leaving the site.  If ash buildup needs cleaned out, please let the rental manager know.   Do not place garbage in the fire pits.
No fires are permitted outside of the cast iron fire rings anywhere on the property.
Hunting
There is absolutely no hunting permitted on Wild Yough property.  There are thousands of acres of public land in the surrounding area should you wish to hunt.
Motorized Vehicles
Motorized vehicles, such as ATV’s, motorcycles (dirt), UTV’s, etc. are not permitted to be operated anywhere on Wild Yough property nor the adjoining state land.  Please refer to Garrett County trails for places to recreate with motorized vehicles.
Guns
No guns or other weapons (bows, crossbows, catapults, etc.) are permitted to be discharged on Wild Yough property.
Smoking
NO smoking is permitted in huts, bell tent, or bath house.  All butts must be disposed of as garbage and not tossed in the forest.  Cigarette butts have been found to be one of the most toxic types of pollution.  Please respect others when smoking at the pavilion.
Hut Furnishings
No blankets, bedding, or pillows may be removed from the Glamping huts.  Do NOT use these items around the fire pit!  Cleaning fees will apply.  Please return all other items to their original location so that they can be inventoried for the next guest.
Pavilion
The pavilion is a shared space great for socializing with other glampers.  Please be respectful of others and return all furniture and games to covered pavilion after use to protect it from weather.  This includes picnic tables.  Please try to tidy up the pavilion after you have enjoyed time there.
Tree stands and feeders
There are several tree stands with ladders throughout the property. These are not for guest use and can be extremely dangerous. No access is granted to these stands with your stay and any use will be considered trespassing. This is for our insurance and your own safety.
There are also several animal feeders throughout the property. Please do not venture under the feeders or touch the winch, cable system, nor barrels. These feeders are extremely heavy and tampering with them could cause serious injury or death. We will make every attempt to load the animal feeders for your wildlife viewing enjoyment, although the black bears have figured out how to disable them to get the corn, so operation is not guaranteed.
Tents
Small Tents and rain tarps are permitted to be erected directly beside any Glamping Hut which is rented by the same occupants.  Additional guest fees apply.
Cleaning
Please keep Glamping Huts, bath house, pavilion and  common areas clean and tidy for the next guests.   Guests are responsible for leaving the huts as they were found.  There is cleaning solution, paper towels, and brooms provided.  There is also a lint brush in each hut to clean up pet hairs.   See cleaning rules in each hut.
Firewood
Firewood may be gathered from down trees/branches in the surrounding woods.  No chainsaws please.   We provide a bow-saw and saw horse near the garbage bins for your use.  Firewood is also available for purchase from Offlake Rentals at check-in.
Security
Garrett County is a very safe community.   Our rental management company performs regular patrols of the site and can always be reached at 800-389-9740 in case of need.  Please keep your hut and cars locked when not within sight of them.
Additionally, Wild Yough has granted permission to the Maryland authorities to patrol our property.  This includes law enforcement and natural resource police.  These patrols are frequent, with the Wild Yough property being the only access to several large parcels of state property.  Please be respectful of these law enforcement patrols.  Maintenance crews may occasionally be found working the trails or patrolling the property.  These efforts are for your enjoyment and safety.  We apologize for any noise or disruption that these activities may cause.
It is permitted to close the gate to the glamping site after 10:00PM.   Do not place any locking mechanism on the gate.  This is for your security in case of emergency personal (fire, ambulance) need to reach the campsite.
