Information You Want to Know

May 11, 2020  

We are living and camping in unprecedented times.  Phrases like "Social Distancing", seem like an oxymoron but have become meaningful and commonplace.  In an effort to maintain the health and well-being of our guests and staff we are continuously reviewing best practices and implementing new ways of performing our duties as the Executive Orders have been and continue to be revised.  

During the National Emergency we have been able to provide essential services consistent with the state and federal guidelines to assist critical infrastructure workers such as gas, pipeline and power plant employees, medical personnel, full-time RVers needing a place to "hunker down", those quarantining themselves from family due to work and those otherwise needy individuals needing a place to stay on their way to their primary residence.  

The following practices have been implemented to reduce guest-to-guest; staff-to-guest; and staff-to-staff contact:

- Only guests traveling in fully self-contained RV units (must have a bathroom) are able to reserve.  When reserving, Guests must evaluate whether they qualify for one of the 18 exceptions permitted under Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer's Executive Order 2020-77, such as if they are critical infrastructure workers, i.e. utility workers, medical personnel, otherwise "needy" individuals (snowbirds traveling back home), those passing through; full time RVers, individuals seeking to self-isolate, individuals caring for a sick relative, or anyone seeking to "engage in outdoor recreational activity, consistent with remaining 6 feet apart from people outside of an individual's immediate household. 

- All reservations are paid in full at the time the reservation is made.

- Remote or Curbside Check-in allows guests to stay in their vehicle and be guided directly to their site eliminating unnecessary congestion or interaction in the office area.

- Take out food can be ordered over the phone, added to the site charges and delivered to the site with a "no-contact delivery" or picked up by appointment.  Menu consistently offers a variety of hot and cold coffee drinks from our espresso bar, breakfast sandwiches and fresh, made-to-order pizza (this includes breakfast pizza) and wings.  Check with office on updated cafe hours. 

-  Essential groceries, RV supplies and firewood can be ordered over the phone and delivered to the site with a "no-contact" delivery.  Credit card must be on file to charge.  

- Propane is available for purchase for tanks and RV's.

- Laundry facilities are available by appointment.  Please call the office 24 hrs ahead of time to secure a time, one person at a time is allowed.

- Non-registered guests/outside visitors will NOT be allowed

- We are enforcing our normal restriction of NO MORE than 6 people/site of the same household 

- There will be no staff led activities

- Bathhouses open May 15.  

- All rustic cabins and tent sites are closed re-open after May 15.

- While onsite, guests may engage in walking through our 30 acres of woods, catch-n-release fishing with their own equipment, and biking around the park.  Nearby are walking/biking trails as well.

- Guests ARE EXPECTED to maintain social distancing guidelines with those who are not of their immediate household. 

- Guests who may need to enter the office are highly encouraged to wear a cloth type mask as it is an enclosed space per the revised executive order.  No more than 6 guests in the office at any given time, children must be accompanied by an adult.  

Guidelines may be modified at the managements discretion based on updated information.

We desire to provide an atmosphere that is consistent with federal and state guidelines as it relates to Social Distancing.  These guidelines are in effect until May 29.

We appreciate your cooperation and attention to these guidelines.
