Pine Lakes Ranch Homeowners Association, Inc. CAMPER RULES

Adopted 11/13/2001, Revised 01/08/2002, Revised 08/18/2013

Recorded as Instrument # 259712

  1. It is the intent of this policy to maximize the enjoyment of all PLR property owners while balancing the need for aesthetic preservation and, by inference, optimize property values. The PLR membership welcomes the use and enjoyment of unimproved property by lot owners. At the same time, full and part time residents reasonably expect preservation of the ranch as one of the finest places to live in Valley County. This policy seeks to balance both needs while maintaining the high standards for which Pine Lakes Ranch is well known.

  2. For the purposes of this document, campers are defined as any non-permanent dwelling or shelter, which is not subject to real estate taxes. Examples are, but not limited to, tents, camp trailers, motor homes, and anything else designed or used to shelter people, animals, or belongings.

  3. There shall be a 20 miles-per-hour speed limit on all roads under Pine Lakes Ranch control.

  4. Livestock on PLR always have the right-of-way.

  5. Motorized vehicles and trailers, including campers, are to be transported only on established roads within the ranch, or on the owner’s exclusive lands. Vehicles used to maintain or improve PLR, or in support of the agricultural operations on the ranch, are exempt from this rule.

  6. Pine Lakes Ranch Camper Policy

6.1 On unimproved lots (lots that do not have homes for which a Certificate of occupancy has been
issued), campers may be permitted on the ranch from May 1 to November 1 only, and only when in
use, for a maximum stay of 16 days. Each 16-day stay must be separated by 5 days, during which
time the camper is to be removed from the ranch.

6.1.1 For construction purposes, use of a temporary structure or camper is to be considered by the PLR
Board for approval. In no case shall the period during which the temporary structure or camper
is approved exceed 2 years. The temporary structure or camper approval, if any, shall be terminated
as soon as a Certificate of Occupancy has been issued. It is recommended and encouraged that
campers be removed if they will not be used for extended periods during construction, such as
during winters. 

6.2 On improved lots (lots with homes for which a Certificate of Occupancy has been issued), as defined
in Section 2 above, may be parked on owner’s lot, subject to PLR Architectural Committee approval,
from May 1 to Nov. 1.

6.2.1 If a trailer or camper is to be used for temporary lodging, the term of the temporary lodging may
not exceed 16 days, unless written approval for a longer term has been received from the PLR
board. Each 16-day stay must be separated by 5 days.

7. The PLR Architectural Committee or Board of Directors may consider written requests for exceptions
to these rules for unique circumstances, at the discretion of the Board of Directors.
