Hi all , in regards of the opening of the park 2020 season we are carefully doing ur best to make decisions based on the safety of all of our shared friends and family. Covid is a serious risk and we don’t want to take any chances or endanger the lives of the vulnerable. As of now we have a lot of organizing and planning that needs to be done in order to open and meet the safety standards imposed upon parks that choose to be open. Unfortunately this is unattainable by the usual April 15th opening. We will be working diligently to make it happen and will keep you all posted as best we can. So you have a better understanding of said regulations they are as follows;

According to Chief Medical Officer of Health Order. Any place that is still permitted to operate that offers or provide services to the public at a location that is accessible to the public must:

a)  Prevent the risk of transmission of infection to the co-workers and members of the public by a worker or member of the public.

b)  Provide for rapid response if a worker or member of the public develops symptoms of illness while at the place of business; and

c)  Maintain high levels of workplace and worker hygiene.

Campgrounds that remain open should only do so under the following practices:

  • Self-contained camping only. Including own water supply, holding tanks, and personal washroom facilities such as RV’s and travel trailers.
    • Close all shared washroom facilities including showers. Short term exceptions may be made in instances where water and sewer is not yet available due to cold weather.
      • Prior to considering opening public washrooms, explore options to supply RVs using water haulers, etc.
      • If plumbed washrooms and/or showers remain operational: clean and disinfect between each use by single site occupants. Incorporate measures to restrict access between usages (e.g., key for public access, return after use).
      • Provide pre-made approved disinfectant in spray bottles for users to disinfect washroom facilities before and after use. Post signage with directions on proper use of disinfectant.
      • Facility would have to demonstrate that they are able to monitor to ensure cleaning and disinfecting is being performed. If unable to provide assurances of adequate maintenance, washrooms cannot remain open.
  • Laundry facilities must be restricted to a single user at a time and high touch surfaces must be disinfected between uses. Users should avoid shaking of dirty laundry prior to washing.
  • Water fill stations must be controlled by the operator practicing proper precautions.
  • Campground capacity limited to 50%, utilizing every other campsite for spacing. Only one camping unit per site.
  • Exceptions to 50% spacing may be considered for properties with sites that are greater than 9 meters (30 ft) wide and for properties where the sites are individually owned or on long term leases.
  • Group camping is prohibited.
  • Common buildings should be closed and recreational activities including but not limited to: playgrounds, swimming pools, water spray parks, water activities, boat rentals, train/tractor rides, hay rides, mini golf, games rooms, arcades, go-karts, amusement rides, gym facilities, and group sports/ courts and any rental equipment are prohibited.
  • Organized activities such as bingo, karaoke, exercise classes, garage sales and the use of social halls are prohibited.
  • Social gatherings such as group bonfires, potlucks, happy hour, etc. are prohibited.
  • Beaches to be assessed closer to bathing season.
  • Avoid direct contact with campers (eg. remote check in).
  • Provide info to campers about social distancing during check-in and check-out times. Post signage with rules and COVID precautions.
  • Residents who are required to self-isolate due to international travel, contacts or symptoms must stay in their RV or on their own campsite/pad. They may not enter any shared facility buildings that may be open.
  • A defined schedule following AHS environmental cleaning recommendations for cleaning and disinfecting with a focus on high touch surfaces.

General Cleaning

  • Increase daily cleaning and disinfection of common areas and high-touch surfaces. Pay particular attention to surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, taps, sinks, and counters.
  • Cleaning refers to the removal of visible dirt, grime and impurities. Cleaning does not kill germs but helps remove them from the surface.
  • Disinfecting refers to using chemical to kill germs on surfaces. This is most effective after surfaces are cleaned. Both steps are important to reduce the spread of infection.
  • Use a disinfectant that has a Drug Identification Number (DIN) and a virucidal claim. Be sure to follow the instructions on the label to disinfect effectively. Alternatively, you can prepare a bleach water solution with 100 ml of unscented household bleach per 900 ml of water.
