Lakeview Plantation/Cedar Knoll® Trail Rules

  1. As required by South Carolina law, all horses and mules must have proof of current, 12-month Negative Coggins test before unloading. All horses will be checked for a proper match at the check-in station. No exceptions.
  2. While Lakeview Plantation/Cedar Knoll® Trails makes every effort to ensure that the trails and facilities are safe, we assume neither risk nor liability for injuries resulting from the inherent risks of equine activities, “pursuant to Article 7, Chapter 9 of Title 47, Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976.”
  3. All visitors must sign a waiver of liability before participating in any activities on Lakeview Plantation. Minors also need the signature of their parent or guardian and should bring a signed release with them if their parent or guardian will not be in attendance.
  4. The trees, shrubbery, food plots, and lawn on Lakeview Plantation are valuable, aesthetically pleasing resources. Consequently, horses or mules should not be tied, ridden, exercised, or lunged where trees, shrubbery, food plots, or lawn—including those encountered on trails and in the camping area—would be damaged. Please do not tie to trailers in the camping area other than for tacking up. Picketing and lunging are permitted in designated areas only. Picket lines, electric fences, and customer stalls are not permitted inside the boundaries of the camping area. Fires are permitted only in designated areas or fire pits provided by Lakeview Plantation and/or in raised fire pits—which do not come into contact with the ground—provided by the customer. Please do not attempt to burn trash in fire pits.
  5. Please, “Don’t be a Litterbug.” Return all litter to the proper receptacles, including cigarette butts. Follow a “pack it in, pack it out” policy. Do not discard cans, paper, or cigarette butts on the trails or in the camping area.
  6. Guests are responsible for the removal of all waste created by the animals and uneaten hay to the compost pile or to the appropriate receptacle (muck bucket) provided by Lakeview Plantation on a daily basis. This includes but is not limited to that deposited in stalls, along picket lines, and in camping areas. Please clean up thoroughly before departure.
  7. Pets must be caged, kenneled, or leashed at all times. No pets are allowed on the trails, in the recreation hall, or in the main lodge.
  8. The recreation hall is closed to guests from the camping area and the main lodge after 11:00 p.m. in order to allow those staying in the adjacent rooms to rest.
  9. The recreation hall is off-limits to minors unless under the direct supervision of their parent or guardian.
  10. Please observe all posted signs. Do not trespass on adjacent posted land.
  11. Possession/use of illegal drugs is expressly prohibited and will result in arrest and prosecution.
  12. Public intoxication, vulgar language, and/or lewd behavior are not appropriate behavior at Lakeview Plantation and will not be tolerated. Please help us to maintain a wholesome family atmosphere.
