COVID-19 Policies:

Only registered campers that are on your reservation are permitted. No visitors will be permitted at this time.

Our policy is that everyone wear a mask when not on your campsite and practice social distancing.

Individuals should only come to the campground if they are feeling healthy and have not been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Please consider all CDC guidelines for quarantine and isolation at home when deciding whether or not to join in with our new modified social- distancing camping in which we will ask for everyone to participate in.

We ask that you be sure that your children follow all social distancing guidelines.

Limitations will be in place in open recreation zones. The playground, ballfield, basketball court, Silver Ridge, Coach Haus will be closed at this time and any social gathering areas.

When walking throughout the park, be sure to have your children close. Pets are permitted, but only on a short leash, and of course, don’t let any fellow campers pet your pet (…yes really).

At this time, we will allow only a couple people in the office at a time and ask that you only enter in the front door (off the parking area) and exit out the side door (porch in front of the Bear Paw Cafe). We will have hand sanitizer at both the entrance and the exit.
