Water will usually be shut off starting the Monday following the second Saturday of October. This is largely dependent on weather conditions.
When is water turn on?
We have to wait until the ground frost is gone and air temperatures are up, so that we don’t have water line damage from freezing. This usually occurs around the 3rd or 4th week in April.
Does Sherwood have on site caretakers?
Sherwood Forest is classified as an Home Owners Association, not a seasonal campground, and thus does not require 24/7 onsite caretakers. The gate has a system to contact someone 24/7 for access, and an emergency number is available.
What are the yearly assessments?
The annual assessments are evaluated every year and can change. For the current rates, please contact the front office. When making two payments, they must be made on or before April 1st, and July 1st.

Clubhouse Hours are:
In Season ~ Memorial Day through Labor Day: Sunday to Thursday 8AM to 9PM Friday & Saturdays 8am to 10pm

ALL guests must be registered at the office, even in the off-season. This is for everyone's safety and is MN state law. In case of an emergency we need to know who is in the park & that they are accounted for. Thank you!
Is there a guest fee?
