    Maybe a dumb question but I will ask anyway, I don't understand the sign about Keep Tents Off The Grass. Are there tent pads or what? Can you explain? Thanks.

    It seems "management" desires all tents be setup on the hard/gravel surfaced areas only and NOT on grassy areas. Personally, I would much rather be set up on a nice grassy area..but...."when in Gull Lake..."

    Well they don't have a long growing season for grass, and if its killed off they wouldn't have a budget to mow it.

    Thanks for the reply, I thought that would be the case. I agree that setting a tent on a grassy area is much preferred to a hard packed gravel surface, and I do understand their reasoning. Is there a maximum stay limit? At the campground where I work, there is a maximum stay limit of 7 days for tents. Some places that I have stayed require tenters to relocate their tents every two to three days so that they don't kill the grass. The way I feel about it, if I have to relocate my tent, I will relocate 300 miles down the road.
