Campground Guidelines

THE FOLLOWING ARE MANDATORY SAFETY STANDARDS TO VISIT OUR PARK BEGINNING ON MONDAY JUNE 8TH, 2020.

COVID – 19 Mandatory Safety Standards:

  • If you are showing any symptoms associated with COVID-19 we respectfully ask that you DO NOT visit our park at this time and please reschedule your trip for another time.
  • Our office will be open with procedures in place to limit contact with our staff at check in and during your stay.
    Our office will have a max occupancy of 10 people (including staff). Please only have one person from your party come into the office to register. We will have camping supplies available in the office for purchase.
  • We understand that part of camping is sitting around a campfire with friends. We ask that you understand that we have been allowed to open with the assurance to the State of Massachusetts that guests will continue to social distance. This means that if you are camping with friends there is no gathering for meals or sitting around a campfire in large groups. Camping is not a way to come to the woods and break social distancing guidelines. We know that you would never want to put our business at risk of being fined or loosing the ability to be open. Those that cannot follow this safety standard will be asked to leave.
  • At this time we are allowing ZERO non-camping guests to our property. No day visitors, no overnight visitors, not even a drive by. Only occupants of your same home or dwelling are allowed on your site. If you have friends you would like to meet up with we ask you do so off property.
  • Guests at our park are expected to practice social distancing guidelines and maintain a distance of 6 feet between them from anyone that does not live in your home or dwelling. Face covering must be worn at all times when in proximity of people who do not live in your home or dwelling. If you are meeting friends at our park for the weekend we absolutely expect these safety standards to be followed as it is not only your health on the line but our business as well.
  • Masks must be worn at all times when you are off of your site and in all buildings on our property, this includes restrooms. Max occupancy for all buildings will be posted outside of the building. Please adhere to the occupancy numbers and wait patiently for others to exit..
  • Please do not ask for an exemption to any of the above safety standards. The Massachusetts Camp Ground Association and the State of Massachusetts worked together to put these guidelines in place so the struggling camping industry could open. These guidelines are meant to keep you, as well as our staff, healthy.   Following these guidelines is imperative not only to our business but ALL Massachusetts campgrounds. There will be no exemptions given.

Thank you for understanding the above mandatory safety standards and helping us work together with the State of Massachusetts to stop the spread of COVID-19. Breaking the above policies not only puts our business at risk but can effect campgrounds across Massachusetts. Help us show the state that campers can be responsible, follow guidelines, and are able to safely enjoy camping while keeping themselves and others safe from contracting COVID-19.

If you are camping with more than one family, each family will register and pay separately and is subject to minimum stay requirements.
