COVID-19 Update


Dear Guest,

We are fully open to serve our camping guest. All bathhouse and laundry facilities will be available for use with enhance cleaning throughout the day but we remind you that you still use
at your own risk.

Our camp store is still curbside only and open from 9am until 8pm through October.

Our pool will continue to be open through September, weather permitting. Day use guests are welcome every day of the week. Pool capacity is limited to 40 users, (one half normal). The
Spray Park and hot tub will NOT be open this year because of COVID restrictions.

The state of IL is requiring the use of masks in all public areas where social distancing cannot be maintained. As most activities in our park are outside social distancing is easy. Your site is
considered a private space and all masking rules are at the guest option while at their site.

Our goal has always been to provide you with the best and most memorable camping experiences, so we hope you can continue enjoying the park now and well into the future. Let’s
hope 2021 can be much better.

Thanks for your understanding
John Downing and The Rock Island at Camelot Team
