I turned up the regulations for our (very nice) camp-site in Staufen, Germany where we stayed some time back.
We never did clarify the difference between 'absolutely forbidden' (car washing) and 'most severely forbidden' (digging).  In any event bang went our dreams of a car-wash pit.

Staufen in Breisgau


We greet you heartily and ask you to follow the next points.

There must be order, also on our camping-grounds, because disorder would be repulsive to you and to all the other camping guests. That is why we hope that we shall not have to resort to long paragraphs and enumerations in this notice. Finally all the visitors belong to the big family of camping guests and they know what is proper.

The grounds are under the care of the Wiesler family. We would be troubled if your stay wouldn't be as pleasant as you would have wished it to be. Don't unroot without thinking what had been planted, fostered and taken care of.

Our camping-grounds should be an oasis of tranquillity. Don't disturb your neighbours who look for quietness and relaxation, just like you, through unnecessary noise, loud music, noisy motors and games between caravans and tents. Conduct yourself therefore in such a manner as to keep the night quiet from 10 p.m. to 7.30 a.m. The same quietness must be followed from 12.30 to 3 p.m. The grounds shall also be closed from 10 p.m. to 7.30 a.m. This site is being shut off by barrier from 22.00 to 7.30 and from 12.30 to 15.00 o'clock. For football and other games please use our playground near railway bridge.

The dog question represents a problem for us. One may bring his dog with himself but first all, they must not freely throughout the camping-grounds: they must be attached to a lease. Every dog must perform his necessities outside the camping-grounds.

Rubbish is to be thrown into the dustbins; even when you have a small piece of paper, don't be afraid to throw it into the garbage can. If everyone took a little care, the camping-grounds would always look like new.

It is exactly the same with the toilets. It's no trouble and it doesn't cost a penny to keep them clean and in good order. Only by your help they can stay that way. It is requested that children may not use the toilets without the company of an elder. In case of any questions, please tell the Wiesler family so that they may remediate the situation.

Car washing is absolutely forbidden, because the camping-grounds has its water-supply on its land.

Digging on the grounds is most severely forbidden!

Daily Reservation must be paid and announced. Otherwise your room reservation will be canceled.
The Wiesler family wishes you a pleasant vacation.
Please do your food-shopping in our shop on the camping site.

Departing-time up to 12.00 o'clock exactly.
