COVID-19 Policy

All visitors need to wear masks in our buildings. All social distancing requirements remain, which is currently at 3 feet.


Dogs are allowed on the grounds, but must remain leashed. They are prohibited inside buildings unless they are service animals.


The campground is currently open, but our bathhouse is closed, and thus only RV camping is permitted. We will re-open the bathhouse on March 1st. We are now closing the bathhouse every year from December 1st to March 1st.  Additionally, we also do not allow camping on the holidays that the Park is closed: Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve/Day, New Year’s Eve/Day, Easter (6 days). The buildings and grounds are closed on those days.
