Out of respect for your Hosts:
All RVs must be self-contained.
Your RV must have an interior toilet and built-in holding tanks for waste water (no exterior tanks allowed). Porta-potties are acceptable but must be dumped offsite at an appropriate facility. The dumping of any gray or black water on Host properties is prohibited. You must have interior cooking facilities. Sorry, no tents of any kind allowed.
Always plan ahead to arrange your visit.
Use the preferred contact method for each Host to arrange a stay. Please do not arrive unannounced. If your plans change, please notify the Host. No-shows or a cancellation within 24 hours of your stay are a violation of this Code of Conduct and are subject to our violations policy.
Arrive only during business hours
Unless the Host says otherwise is okay, and be aware that some sites may have gates that will be closed after hours.
When requesting your stay, tell the Host what size vehicle you are driving.
Upon arrival, ask which entrance you should use and whether you should unhook your tow vehicle. Ask if there are any additional conditions you should know about.
Introduce yourself and show the Host your membership card.
Hosts will only allow current members of Harvest Hosts to park overnight on their property.
Please support your host.
As a thank you for your overnight stay, we recommend spending a minimum of $20 through a purchase, tip, or donation to support your Host – that way everyone wins!
Do not stay longer than 24 hours.
A stay longer than 24 hours must be by Host invitation.
Park only in the areas indicated.
Parking areas may not always be 100% level and are subject to environmental conditions.
Please keep a low profile.
Remember that the sites are not campgrounds and take care not to disturb the Hosts' neighbors. Be sure to stop any noise, music, and generators by 10 PM or the Hosts’ quiet hours, whichever is earlier.
Indoor cooking only.
Do not use charcoal or propane grills or light fires of any kind.
Do not use jacks without jack-pads on asphalt.
The weight of the rig can cause damage to the Hosts' property. Inform your Host if you have slide-outs so that you can be parked in an appropriate location.
Remember these sites can be working vineyards, farms or historical properties.
Please use care and supervise children and pets at all times. Dogs must remain on a leash when outside your RV. Refrain from exploring closed or restricted areas.
Ask before using your generator
As discussed above, please keep a low profile. If you are parked near the Host's home, neighbors, or other RVs, please use your generator sparingly and only between the hours of 8am and 10pm, or other hours designated by the Host. Also, please check local regulations before using your generator.
Take all trash with you.
When departing, thank your Host for your visit.
Be aware of local alcohol regulations.
Local regulations may prohibit alcohol outside of your RV or other areas of the host property.
