Facilities Use Request

The ARL-FX Chapter is not a commercial facility, we allow the use of our facilities by non-profits, youth groups and our members. 


  • Be respectful of the chapter property.
  • Speed limit on Chapter property is 10 MPH.
  • Take ALL trash with you and deposit in the appropriate trash receptacle.
    • Do not leave trash in campground(s), pavilion(s), or chapter facility(s).
  • Fires should only be built in existing fire pits.
  • Do not burn anything in the fire pits or grills other than wood, charcoal or kindling.
  • Do not burn cans or bottles.
  • Do not leave food in fire pits or on grills.
  • Do not throw rocks on the pavilion’s roof.
  • Do not tear down signs, dig holes or otherwise damage the Chapter property.
  • Shooting is prohibited anywhere on chapter grounds except at the designated shooting ranges.
  • Make sure when you leave, the area is cleaner than when you arrive. 
  • NO child or group of children can be left unsupervised. 
  • NOTE: Firewood for campground firepits. There are times when there may be firewood available at the campground.  If there is, it will be located near campsite 1 & 2.  Otherwise, you will need to supply your own if wishing to build a fire.
    • DO NOT take the stacked/split wood that is being sold (located near large pavilion).

PETS or ANIMALS - Per the Ground Rules listed in the chapter bylaws booklet - Pets or animals brought to the property shall be on a leash at all times.  No animals will be allowed in the buildings except service dogs.

NOTE: If you see any issues/damage to the property, please let us know immediately by emailing

IMPORTANT: Use of outhouses:  Septic tanks are used for the outhouses on the property. Trash (plastic bottles, bags, etc.) should never be disposed of in an outhouse for any reason. Trash clogs the septic tank and the Chapter has to pay to get it cleared. Groups may be charged these costs if the septic tank becomes clogged while they use the property.
