(full details in the Site Rules and Exit Rules)
Hoses attached to water spigots must be equipped with a backflow preventor and a y-connector (both sold at the camp store). This allows you to always leave one open spot for the next person to connect a hose. Do not dump waste water into the lake, stream, or at the water spigots – dig a waste water sump in your camp (not more than 3 feet deep). You must fill in all pits and trenches before you leave the event; the Coopers can provide extra dirt, if you need it.
Do not use hay or straw as rushes or ground cover without the express permission of the Cooper's Lake Campground management. If permission is granted, hay/straw is available for sale at the camp store. Hay bales from the battlefield are not for common use, and may not be removed. At the end of War, rake used straw into a pile, and leave unopened straw bales next to the nearest road to your camp.
No structure may be taller than 16 feet. The Campground management and Pennsic staff reserve the right to order dismantled any project which, in their judgement, are deemed unsafe, unsightly, or pose an unacceptable risk of injury or property damage.
You must bag your trash and take it to the nearest dumpster; lumber and unused firewood should be stacked at the nearest road to your camp - not taken to the dumpsters. Do not abandon any large items (furniture, mattresses, old tents, etc.) in your campsite. You are responsible for removing oversized items from the campground; the rubbish service employed by the Campground will not take them.
