Covid-19 Responsible Recreation

Covid-19 Responsible Recreation

The Lena KOA Holiday campground is open and operating according to the “Restore Illinois” Phase 4 guidelines for Covid-19.   Illinois is taking a 5 phase approach to reopening the economy.  Phase 4, which allows campground operations with restrictions, began on June 26th.   We are awaiting the official word/update from the Illinois Department of Public Health Restore Illinois Phase 4 Updated Guidelines for RV Parks and Campgrounds. These guidelines may or may not allow us to operate certain amenities and activities to the fullest extent.

We are structuring our camper interactions, activities, and work practices in an attempt to achieve a safe environment for all.   The following are some of the practices in place:

  • ·Social distancing of 6 feet or more between family groups (related individuals in same household)
  • ·Limit groups to 10 or fewer people
  • ·Wear face masks when within 6 feet of others (outside of your household)
  • ·Wash hands frequently
  • ·Clean and sanitize surfaces frequently
  • ·Customers should not host or attend gatherings with people outside their single group occupying the campsite (e.g., outdoor cookouts, campfire gatherings)


Guest Registration and General Store Hours

Sunday – Thursday: 9 am – 8 pm, Friday: 9 am – 10 pm, Saturday: 9 am – 9 pm


What Looks Familiar

Here are some things that will look the same (or almost the same). Very few things will be 100% the same, but many things will be familiar:

  • Your campsite will still have the same amenities (based on site type) as before 
  • You can still enjoy campfires. Note: Campers should not host or attend gatherings with people outside their single group occupying the campsite
  • We will deliver firewood, ice and other general store items to your site
  • We will still pick up your trash and recycling at your site
  • You can still enjoy many recreation activities on the grounds, with social distancing being observed, within family groups, numbers limited (check out equipment at the office or better yet use your own)
