My Cayley Host Location : is situated on the grassy blvd, beside my house, there is a fenced grass area with no gates, fire pit with free firewood, garden hose, for water, and power ( donation for $5.00 per night use please)
"by donation" pay system situated across the highway to west if you want a much larger grassed site, with one fire pit, and several unit parking - possibly water available, trailer dump and pet "toileting" with clean up after, is mandatory.
> no generators after 10pm unless extremely quiet
> no smoking on property.
> children should be supervised
> pets on leash at all times, and kept away from yard plants
> this is a residential area, sometimes the locals will party late, but for me I prefer no noise after 11 pm.
All road accesses are paved.
CAYLEY is the new primary SITE: 15 minute drive south from High River to Hamlet of Cayley, Ab. ALL PAVED ROADS: has room for larger units on grassed boulevard, beside my new house or a 28 to 30 foot on the property- Generators are ok for evenings - however power hook up to 110 would be preferred at night after midnight till 0700 hours as it is in quiet residential area. No one has complained so far tho. $5. donation per night would be appreciated. thank you.
Early spring or heavy rains, could make Blvd unusable, however parking on Road in front on Railway is ok.
CAYLEY Hamlet site: Tow vehicle parking available here > in 2 of the 3 options can remain hooked up unless shorter units require parked.
NOTE: there is a trailer dump, across the highway at the camp site - only available after warmer temperatures, there they ask for donation payment for camping - but not sure what if any there would be for use of the trailer dump if the camping is not used. CLEAN POTABLE WATER FROM GARDEN HOSE AT HOUSE .
HIGH RIVER SITE NOW TO BE SOLD,,,,, MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE AFTER MID JULY, 2021
Preference for 1 to 2 weeks prior notice or earlier if possible or take a chance on shorter notice for me to respond now, in case I am hiking or kayaking for a day, week or weekend, in order to have access to either of the two sites - as this will also open up 1 or 2 other spots to park on my own properties, up to 28 feet on one or the other of the two sites, while I'm on a trip.
