Pridefloat 2017 Policies

  • Pridefloat reserves the right to refuse any single entry or group of entries for any reason. Pridefloat is not open to the general public. We are a social club with behavioral guidelines. We are not a business or a registered Not-For-Profit and can refuse any entry at any time as we deem necessary.
  • It is important that you read these policies carefully and thoughtfully before you download the entry form at the bottom of this form. Ignorance of our policies is not an excuse for not following them. Please understand that we want uniform expectations so that every participant has a good time and that there are not any surprises on anyone's part. 
  • You must be 21 years of age or older to attend this event. We reserve the right to refuse admittance if proper ID cannot be provided upon request. 
  • Selling your entry to a Third Party is not acceptable and the entry will be rejected upon arrival. We may request ID when registering. If your entry form does not match your ID you will be asked to leave.
  • All refunds, changes, additions, and transfers must be completed 10 days prior to the event.
  • EACH person participating in Pridefloat must sign a WAIVER (on the bottom of the entry form) that releases the organizers of Pridefloat and the contracted outfitters from all liability of losses due to theft, accidental injuries, or drowning.
  • Check or Money Orders only. If your check bounces so do you.
  • WALK-INS are not accepted. Pridefloat is a pre-registration event. No exceptions.
  • QUIET HOURS FROM 11:00 PM to 8AM means music must be OFF after 11:00.  This is campground policy – not ours – so we are bound to honor it.
  • Inverters and generators are NOT the same thing. Inverters are much quieter. Loud generators have been the subject of many a complaint over the years, so we have adopted the following in response to those complaints:

            GENERATORS OVER 80 DECIBELS:  (Really loud units)   NOT ALLOWED at Pridefloat.
            MOTOR HOMES & CAMPER UNITS:       8am to 7:00pm
            INVERTER UNITS – UNLIMITED HOURS because they are quiet.     

  • VISITORS - No visitors at any time will be allowed at Pridefloat.
  • RAFTS No pets allowed in any raft. If you plan on taking your pet on the river, you must float in a canoe - no exceptions.
  • CAMPING is on a first come – first serve basis. Save space for your friends by bringing their tent and setting it up early. There are NO hook-ups of any kind at Pridefloat. We camp in a primitive open area. All Pridefloat participants must camp in our designated, gated area.
  • ALL PARTICIPANTS pay the basic entry fee of  $50 REGARDLESS of arrival time. The basic entry fee will also apply to persons bringing their own canoe / raft / kayak . Pridefloat will pay for all hauling charges of your craft.
  • CAMP DADDY INFORMATION TENT – Please check-in with the Pridefloat Camp Daddies as soon as possible after arrival. Times when the tent will be manned will be posted for your convenience.
