2021 Expectations ~ October 16 2020
We hope you and your family are well and managing during these difficult times. Unfortunately the COVID numbers are once again rising. In order to set a reasonable expectation for the 2021 camping season we will be taking reservations for 6 or more days now, and throughout the winter months. Additionally we will only be accepting self-contained RV’s that have working bathrooms. This past season we had many early tent and pop up reservations taken before COVID and we tried to accommodate those who made those reservations by limiting access to our bathhouse to campers without bathroom facilities of their own. For the most part it was a successful plan but we still had to engage in uncomfortable conversations with guests who didn’t think it applied to them or was no big deal. We took these precautions to protect those campers who needed our facilities from encountering others in the bathhouse. Additionally we did not want to subject our staff to cleaning up after those who had their own facility.
If the numbers are still unfavorable in 2021 our Lodge will regretfully remain closed. We sorely missed the comradery that happens in the Lodge with our popular pancake breaksfast, ice cream socials, weekend coffee and Bingo nights – we did manage to save Saturday night popcorn via golf cart delivery – some 75 bags on a Saturday night!
As we did this year, we will make the necessary adjustments when the numbers are low and we feel confident lifting these restrictions. We received many emails thanking us for the polices we put in place to ensure a very comfortable camping environment.
The park is already filling up for the 2021 camping season – reservations again, are being taken for self-contained RV’s reserving at least 6 nights in the camp. Shorter reservations can be made after the camp opens on May 1st – with the exception of the month of May and Memorial Day. Those reservations will be accepted after the New Year.
We won’t know until next year if tent camping and RV’s without bath facilities will be available.
We don’t take these restrictions lightly and they have a significant financial impact on our camp, but we feel strongly that we must do our part to ensure that our campers feel comfortable staying with us.
We appreciate each and every family that camps with us and look forward to the 2021 camping season.
We wish you all a safe and healthy New Year!
