What is our Covid-19 response?

Due to the recent issues with COVID-19, we will be putting in place the necessities for keeping everyone safe and healthy. We are going to increase our disinfecting and sanitizing in any contact areas, according to CDC guidelines. Also, expect changes with our normal activities, with some having to be changed or canceled to limit large gatherings or close contact. We will be limiting the Campstore/Office entrance and try to have a “cashless” store and check in process with a window for purchasing items. All of our Rental Campers will have a 24 hour spacing between renting to allow for extensive disinfecting, sanitizing, and cleaning. We will be adjusting and changing our guidelines according to the CDC and the Illinois Public Health Department for cleaning and social distancing as needed.

Are amenities closed due to COVID-19?

The Beach is open! We are also limiting or postponing our weekend activities. We will be sending out emails for the upcoming reservations to update what we are able to open, safely. Please call ahead if you are concerned about certain amenities being closed or needing to postpone your reservation.
